    I vote Les Stroud. I don`t think Grylls is a pussy tho. If you follow Les Stroud`s tips, you might survive. If you try the crap Bear does you will probably die.

    Grylls carries a piece of flint he uses, along with his knife, to make fires. Why not just carry a lighter?

    Stroud uses a variety of improvisational methods to make fire.

    Ah. I heard my sister going on about how the Survival Man is better than Bear Grylls, I guess she saw this pic. (Stupid bitch agrees with anything she sees on Tumblr)

    I`ve seen both shows and much prefer Man vs Wild.

    Grylls is great if you want to be entertained by pure stupidity and dangerous stunts. It`s about as realistic as the reality show Survivor.
    Les Stroud`s show wasn`t cancelled. He had to take a year off because he got some flesh-eating disease of the mouth that nobody could identify. When asked by doctors which tropical countries he could have gotten the disease, he basically answered "all of them." His show continues, but because it`s REAL it takes a very long time to shoot.

    Me and my buddy used to call Survivorman `Boringman` cuz that`s what it was. Les just tries not to die which is boring. Walking up and down the hill twice just to get lame footage? Not impressed. Bear is totes full of isht but shows like this are entertainment, not actual survival training. Both of them do dumb stuff sometimes. Both do smart stuff sometimes. Who is a better survivor in the wild, man? Who cares.

    I used to love Man vs Wild until I found out how fake it is. Bear is still tough and smart, but he cheats a lot. Les would totally win a survival war. I`d bet serious money on that.

    lol Les Stroud...whipped up a sand distillery using somegarbage..a couple rocks and a twig... Bear just drank his own piss.

    Coulda been the enema he gave himself..or the bee allergy he didnt know he had... but I think it was when he juiced an elephant turd for water that kinda tipped me off.

    If I`ve learned one important thing from Survivorman, it is this: Even if you know what you are doing, You will still hate yourself and the choices you`ve made that caused you to decide to survive in the deep wilderness.

    Seriously. He is miserable, unhappy and looks like he just wants to walk out of the forest and become a banker at any minute.

    It`s not a bad lesson, really.

    Yeah, les is totally awesome. some episodes you really feel for the guy, he`s in such a bad situation that you can see it in his eyes that he`s thinking of making that emergency call for pick up. Heck no one can blame him though, most people couldn`t survive 2 days in some of the places, and if so they might be leery of doing it again. But Les goes 7 days, and then does it again, les is the man.

    Yes! Les Stroud is so much more badass than that faker Bear. Mostly because of the help he gets when "surviving" and his camera crew

    The whole thing is actually comparing apples to oranges. Stroud made a show to actually try to teach you how to survive. Grylls was making a show for the entertainment value.

    Who was in the SAS? Who climbed mount Everest? BG? Thought so. Once survivor man stops playing boy scout and actually does something monumental then he can call himself a bad ass.

    Yea this is nothing I didn`t know but I still prefer Bear. His show is much more entertaining and you still can learn stuff. Les is pretty boring.

    Nope, they are both in it for the money. Don`t fool yourself.

    So, Stroud does appear to be a bad ass, but why tear down Bear to demonstrate that? I`ve never heard of Les Stroud, and I will now most certainly have a look, but, damn, I`m much less likely to after seeing how this graphic tears down Grylls to make the point. Thumbs up for Stroud, thumbs down for the pansy tactics of this graphic.

    Why does everyone keep claiming Man vs Wild is "fake"? The show never claimed "watch Bear survive in the wild all by himself." .. they clearly say "Bear here will show you what you should do, should you get yourself into any of these situations." The show isn`t about him surviving, it`s about teaching the viewer survival techniques.

    Bear is way more entertaining and that`s all I care about. I don`t need wildlife survival skills because I don`t hike or live in the wild. People take this stuff way too seriously. It`s school yard arguing - "my dad`s cooler than your day." "no he`s not!" "My dad could beat your dad up." "No he couldn`t..!"

    Les Stroud kicks ass. Bear Grylls is a dick.

    In an interview a while back, I think it was with Ray Mears (another survival expert_, the interviewer asked him, "So if it was you, Les Stroud and Bear Grylls out in the bush in a survival situation, what would you get each of the 3 of you to do?"

    If I remember right, the answer from Ray Mears was "well, I`d probably build the shelter. Les would go get the food. And we`d get Bear Grylls to stay at camp and poke the fire, before he hurts himself".

    Les Stroud all the f*cking way.

    I`ve heard that these "wild treks" les takes are bullpoo. He stays in the same general area and does a bunch of filming. How do we know he goes and gets his cameras anyway, he could just have people who work for the show go get the camera`s. And what dumbass wastes their energy to set up a camera, do a long walking scene then go back for it and has to walk the same way again. les sucks and is a pompous brat

    That`s 100% true, plus many of BG`s stunts are staged to simulate danger.

    The saddest part is he`s advising people to take stupid risks with little payoff in a survival situation, all for ratings, fame and money.
