My respect for him just dropped significantly.

Mine as well, but if Jesse changes his name to Clifford the Big Red Dog all will be forgiven.

By the way, Les is currently working on new episodes of Survivroman that should start air later this year. Same thing as before except this time he's going out for 10 days instead of 7.

Really? I thought he retired because of the toll it was taking on him. Either somebody offered him a big paycheck, or he got really bored.

/Wasn't he gonna try a more generic travel show?

He's done a couple different shows since Survivorman, one of them a travel type show. I think he got bored and wanted the challenge again.

Actually, Les probably needs the money, and I'll watch his show, cause he offers good advice. F*ck bear grylls.

Lost in the wild. BFD. Once they get past a few essentials in each environment they're just repeating things.

In fairness, his own name is Bear. Dude probably knows a thing about having a farked up name growing up. Might be a "boy named sue" sort of situation.

His real name is Edward Michael Grylls, he just goes by Bear because it sounds tougher to his opponents during competitive piss drinking contests.

Never drink your pee to survive.

One of them will be called "Duke" and the other "Huck" so......

whatever. I used to know two brothers named "Spur" and "Colt." Why yes, they were cowboys. You don't expect them to go to med school, do you?

Until I read the article, I thought it meant that he would rather drink his own pee than be interviewed by NPR.......which kind of actually made sense to me.

I'm just glad you put it all in CAPS. Thanks.

It's a measure of how tough you are. Would you rather be in the woods drinking your own pee, or in a Starbucks wondering if you're drinking someone else's? Grylls takes the easy way out, the big baby.

His given name is Edward Michael, so he didn't have to grow up with the name "Bear", presumably.

Bear teaches you how to live very briefly in an environment. In fact, his brand of living is the fast-track to dying.

I really liked the rock climbing thing he did recently. it showed him sprinting across the desert to the base of his climb. Normally, this is a grueling 3 minute walk along a trail from the parking lot. But to survive in the desert, it's always best to do it at a full sprint, ignoring the trail and jumping over boulders.

Then he showed us how to mock lead/top rope a crack climb, without actually using the crack or any climbing technique what-so-ever. Did I mention that he loves climbing and does it in beat up hiking shoes?

When I watch his shows, I have more respect for the camera man that has to lug the heavy equipment AND follow him along.
I love the show, I DGAF what he does off camera.

The man expends more energy being his own camera crew, setting up shots and what not, than he does surviving.

Hell, he could thrive if he didn't have to do all the extra work.

I hope he was fully exposed to the sun without any head covering. That's the way a True Survivalist does it.
