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.

[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.

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.

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.

Ok, you did not ever get the feeling this was staged while watching the show. I thought how funning it was how the camera guy always seemed to be in the right place at the right time and he always seemed to stumble across the stuff he needed right when they were needed. I also thought that I noticed a rope which was hidden as he was either climbng up or down from something. Anyone who climbed Everest has to be tough and a little dumb so I won't take anything away from him but he and the show was trying to foll the public. There was that show the Mutural of Omaha back years ago which got caught traping animals then letting tigers catch them to eat. They made it look as if it was just a natural thing which they caught on film. I think that was the show.

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?

Whateva, whateva. I carry my elephant droppings in a Nalgene bottle. I'm not a savage.

Even if the guy posts up in hotels every once and a while, he's still a bad ass in my book...ps Jason Campbell's gonna light it up this year!!
