RE: Bear Grylls got fired.
Bear does crazy shit. But he belongs on fear factor, not a survival show. Anyone with even an incling of how to survive in the wild knows that Bear takes risks that a survivalist would ONLY take with a full crew and EMTs standing by.

Les goes it alone, but his survival skills are pitiful. He has no clue as to how one should approach eating in the wild, and is worse at bush shelters than my ten year old daughter.

Really, both of these guys are entertaining to watch for people who don't actually spend time in the bush (and I mean "real time" as in going with nothing but a small pack with a few essentials.) But for those of us who do, after a couple episodes of laughing at them, the shows become fraught with frustrating moments where we are left screaming at the screen about the lack of skills for survival. What bothers me most is how "difficult" they make it look. As though bush survival is impossible for anyone except "experts" like them. It deters most people from embarking on adventures in the bush themselves, which can be an exciting and fulfilling experience for even the nerdiest city dweller.

This is all true, but if you had to pick.... it's Bears right?

RE: Bear Grylls got fired.
If you held a gun to my head and told me I had to watch a full season of either, I'd pick bear. His stupidity is more entertaining, whereas Les is just frustrating. I watched an episode of Les Strouds where he was in a boreal type forest. He nearly starved, and the whole time you could see easy to catch wildlife running around. Shit, I could teach someone to catch squirrels in about an hour and a half, and they would be able to catch more than they could even eat. All with nothing but a knife!

The worst part of all of this is, I just got my patented Bear Grylls Knives, boots, and pants combo. Now none of the woods guys are gonna know why it`s so cool.

I guess I'm goin back to ice road truckin.

RE: Bear Grylls got fired.
Mods, please move thread to Conspiracy Theories.

It is a well known fact that Bear is not a true bear.

Nor was he fired. He got lost in the last filming and Discovery Channel doesn't want the bad press that they can't find Bear or his crew.

Remember: Media controls the flow of information in their favor.
