First Santa and now Bear Grylls?!?!

It was bad enough when I found out on Jimmy Kimmel Live that "Bear's" real name is Theodore and when he was young they called him Teddy Bear and then shortened it to Bear, but this takes the cake.

TV 'survival king' stayed in hotels - Times Online
Quote:
TO LIVE up to his public image of a rugged, ex-SAS adventurer, it must have seemed essential for Bear Grylls to appear at ease sleeping rough and catching his own food in his television survival series.

But it has emerged that Grylls, 33, was enjoying a far more conventional form of comfort, retreating some nights from filming in mountains and on desert islands to nearby lodges and hotels.
I love the show Man vs. Wild and this probably won't keep me from watching it, but I do feel just a little bit cheated. Plus, I bet PETA is going to be [even more] pissed at him because it's not he'll starve if he doesn't kill and eat animals while he's filming.
Damn you Bear, I mean Teddy, I've been living in the woods and eating rotten bird eggs for the past 4 months because I thought you were that cool. Now I just feel foolish!

This is exactly why Les Stroud is the true "Survival king". All hail Survivorman.

Re: First Santa and now Bear Grylls?!?!

Yeah, Survivorman is a really good show too. I could see people saying it's better because he's completely alone out there but I've only seen it two or three times so it's hard to say.

Re: First Santa and now Bear Grylls?!?!

Les Stroud doesn't take as many chances as "Bear", but then again, he's not sleeping in a hotel when the cameras are off. The situations in Survivorman are a lot more realistic too. There's a chance I may get stranded in a snow storm while driving someday, but the chances of me being lost in an Ecuadorien jungle are less than zero.

Regardless of how it's staged, there's nothing more man than the stuff he does on camera.

Please! Who among us hasn't squeezed the juice out of elephant droppings for nourishment and hydration when out in the jungle?

Re: First Santa and now Bear Grylls?!?!

I am a bit disappointed too, and I always did think SurvivorMan was a bit more dangerous seeing that he was alone.

But Bear has made his own houses out of wood, etc right in front of camera. It is not like he making that stuff up. He definitely did quite a bit of crazy things and put himself in front of danger.

It is still a great show and you learn a lot while getting entertained.

Re: First Santa and now Bear Grylls?!?!

I'm sure Bear has an insane amount of knowledge about surviving, whether the show is staged or not. They probably didn't make up the part about him serving in the British Special Forces.

Anyways, from a survival perspective, SurvivorMan is a better show. He doesn't have camera men, so it's less likely that he's faking anything. Also, as was said earlier, it's much more realistic. However, from an entertainment perspective, I like Man vs. Wild better.
