    That`s not survival, that`s just being disgusting for the sake of it. I mean Ray Mears can manage without drinking the contents of a camel`s stomach. That said, I sitll love the Bear Grylls shows, they`re so entertaining.

    Andy McNab was asked what would happen if Chris Ryan, Ray Mears, Bear Grylls and himself were stuck on an island together.
    He said that Chris Ryan and himself would go and hunt for food, Ray Mears would build the shelter and they would tell Bear Grylls to f*ck off!

    True story...

    Sorry, but, I didn`t like this... the only thing I don`t like about the show is how he NEEDLESSLY eats the nastiest, uncooked, fear factor crap he can find, and this is not a montage of Bear`s bad-assedness, but a montage of all his nasty eating habits... big FAIL for me...

    I can`t stand his show. Everything other thing he does is risky and unnecesary. If you were seriously trying to survive by yourself somewhere, you should not do the things this man does. It is really all for the shock value...eating strange things, jumping off of things wrestling animals.

    In one of the few episodes I watched he caught a crocodile...not that it was threatening him...and he proceeded to kill it by holding its tail and swinging its head back and forth into a nearby stump...and just to "make sure" it was dead, he stabbed a knife between its eyes.

    I`m not an animal rights activist or anything, but thats seriously drated up. I now refuse to watch his show.

    I challenge you guys to youtube search "man vs wild fraud" and tell me just how bad-ass he is.
    Sure, he`s entertaining, and very brave, and SOME of the things he does are dangerous, but many of them are NOT/Staged.

    Bear Grylls is a gigantic fake. Granted, he does a lot of impressive stunts, but he`s a miserable failure of a survival expert. He would die in a real situation.
    Les Stroud, however, is made of badass and balls, and he knows what the drat he`s doing.

    I`m going to quote someone`s comment from YouTube because I think he/she explains it well:

    topknotch123
    "when ure training to fight, ie karate, kung fu, boxing etc, u dont have to actually BE in a real fight to train, u do sparring... which is a re-enactment of a real fight... just cuz hes not actually there doesn`t mean he`s a fraud, his tips are still the same tips as if he is there... also, the disclaimer in the beginning states that some stituations are set up for purpose of demonstration... why are u guys so surprised?"

    Jakey although i agree that Bear Grylls is full of poo andy mcnab is a toy soilder. Fake sas reserve who just gets his name in papers to sell stories. One hypocrite sounding out another.

    Les stroud is the only survivor show who demonstrates the harsh reality of being lost alone.

    Greatest Bullpoo of Bear Grylls When he tells us you should float in rapids to cover ground quicker. Eh yeh get soaking wet before a cold night and smash ure bones to brittle.

    At least mears is honest and les stroud is the godfather. Mcnab and the rest are a bunch of fame grabbing posers

    I don`t know how you can say he wouldnt survive in a real situation. He was in the British Special Forces where thats what they were taught to do. Have you ever even seen the show and some of the poo he pulls out of his ass to get out of something or to catch a meal. I mean he killed a rabbit with a freakin stick, caught a huge ass catfish by letting it bite his hand, and killed a small alligator with a knife. I mean seriously, if you don`t like him, thats fine, but don`t say he couldn`t survive in the wild. Plus, Bear always shows you to get out of the wild in a week or less, whereas I`ve seen Les stay in one place and on the seventh day, he meets a helicopter or a car somewhere. Bear is the man.

    Ever been in a survival situation you have to preserve energy. Bear Grylls doesent he runs around and does stuff which would get him killed. Les stroud does what you should do and explains it ideally you wait around to be rescued. More you move harder it is for rescue services to get you.

    He was in the SAS reserves not the proper SAS. I have no doubt hed survive but he wouldnt do what he does on tv.

    As for catching the animals etc its been fully admitted by his production crew those stunts are staged.

    Eating bugs is the easiest part. Just don`t eat them alive. Poke a stick in their heads to finish them without losing all the fluids and then squish it against your teeth with your fingers. Chew and swirl the whole thing in your mouth with some liquids and gulp the whole thing down.

    Elephant dung is the grossest thing but if you have clothes that you can spare you can use that to filter some of the dung out of the water.

    A lot of people actually drink their own pee. It`s not so bad as it sound. You should try some golden shower sometimes, it`s really stimulating.

    Jay, I agree with your other comments, but as for the one about him being less qualified just because he was in the territorial unit doesn`t mean the requirements or training once in are any different than those of full time service personell... it`s just that they aren`t used as often.

    As an ex-serviceman we may have had a bit of internal banter with the territorial army/reserves about them only being weekend warriors, but they were no less qualified.... just less experienced usually. This shows more in units like the SAS where normally in the forces you`d have served time in a regular unit and got a lot of experience of normal soldiering first before being allowed to try for them - whereas a civvy could try for the territorial unit without first having had previous military experience.

    plus most of the territorial unit are made up of ex fulltime regulars who`ve retired, or commonwealth regulars with vast experience who want a foothold to getting into the british military regulars

    Maybe Bear Grylls could survive off the land in harsh circumstances, but it wouldn`t look like his TV shows. They`re for attracting viewers ("OMG, watch this guy, he drinks elephant poo, wtf?").

    I`d rather be stranded with Ray Mears. Not only would he keep me alive in the wild, but we`d probably eat quite well and sleep quite comfortably there.

    He`s basically a circus geek. He`s all, "Look at me, doesn`t this make you disgusted." What we see here is him doing his geek thing, wrestling one small pig and doing two minor feats of derring do (sorry, drinking from do isn`t derring do).

    He briefly had a stint doing commercials for some cereal, but I guess the company soon realized that an endorsement by some clown who drinks juice from animal turds is not likely to strike the right cord with the public.

    Did you know that the people who climb Mt. Everest have turned it into a dump? It`s so "easy" now with oxygen tanks and all the equipment that a ton of people do it and the camps are just filthy.

    Super Smash, typical answer

    well why would the SAS climb mount everest if they were gonna take the easy route where there are ladders up the really hard bits. There`s more than one way to the top... and with the SAS being the SAS, they probably took the hardest route. The Marines and Navy SEALs don`t touch the SAS

    We know this is a scripted show, right? With multiple takes, and smoke machines (for volcano segments) rubber snakes (for him to fake-out at), men in bear suits (for him to be `chased` by).

    Any Bear Grylls media is scripted, false and fake, and if you don`t believe me, just google. The guy`s a stupid poo-eating phony.
