For me it has to be Bear Grylls, he's very entertaining and i learn some survival skills aswell.

What do you think?

I think the real question here is "Who is the best TV Snake-baiter" because that's all they ever seem to do. Run about the wilderness, find snakes and bait the poor bastards.

Bear Grylls is probably the most hardcore, because not only does he bait them, he kills them and eats them raw.

Dora the Explorer shits on Bear Grylls. Metaphorically and literally, despite her being fictitious. Like his 'survival'.
#6
I went for Steve Irwin, he was great. Ben Fogle would have been next because he has sufficently explored and conquered every daytime show on BBC1 & 2.
#8
Steve Irwin, he's still my hero.

and i totally remember Rupert! he floated around in his hot air balloon on Nick Junior!

bear gryyls has admitted to staying in a hotel overnight during filming. also read this


The Eton- educated 33-year- old is also alleged to have choreographed parts of Born Survivor, with many of his spectacular stunts carefully set up by the production crew.


Mark Weinert, a survival consultant brought in for the programme, said one show also wrongly gave the impression that the adventurer built a Polynesian- style raft using only materials around him, including bamboo and palm leaves for a sail.

Mr Weinert had in fact led a team that built the raft, which was then dismantled so that Grylls could be shown constructing it on camera.

Old news.

And the fact is that unlike most other "TV adventurers" Grylls was actually in the Territorial army and did most of the stuff for real before he was on TV.

Yeah Bear Grylls sucks, I mean his show is entertaining, but thats it. He doesnt even compare to survivorman. The only reason he is more popular is because he tries to make the show more interesting, but survivorman really survives and helps you in real situations.

Bear Grylls always breaks several surviving rules, such as the top rule, dont get wet.
and other rules like never leave the ground, and dont just go around eating everything.

So I would say survivorman

I'm quoting this to express my utter disgust at Dora the Explorer not being on your list... Her second name is The Explorer for **** sake, she wins before any discussion about exploration or adventuring can even be taken in to account

Smooth are the words you sing down and high
Underground is your joy your laws

Specifically, he was in the territorial SAS regiment, and took part in a number of operational close target recce missions. And broke his back in a parachuting accident, and became the youngest Briton to climb Everest(after recovering from the parachuting accident).
