Did the hotel not have room service that night and he had to forage in the vending machines?

Done in one. I'll get the lights.

He should have died, but he has a camera and support crew with him, so they bailed him out.

I've semi-recently re-watched all the survivorman episodes, and then went and watched a few Bear Grylls episodes (I think I maybe watched one of his episodes when they were originally on).  Every criticism Bear has received makes complete sense.  Les > Bear, and it is not even close.

I loved Survivorman but Les definitely jumped the shark with his 'Let's go find Bigfoot' series.

Yeah I bet out of those 21 times 21 were fake.

Well, let's all hope that 22nd attempt does the trick

I tend to agree, but he raises a good point that you never really know until you go searching, and he didn't seem to jump to conclusions has most people he worked with did.  Yes the idea of bigfoot existing is stupid, and I'd respect Les more for not giving this nonsense the light of day, but if you're going to do it, there's a lot worse ways to do it than he did.

In some ways, his wild harvest series is worse.  It seemed to be billed as a "how to make a good meal out of what you can harvest", and was more "how to make a good meal if you gather a couple things, bring a whole lot of expensive gourmet ingredients from outside, and hire a professional chef."

I remember watching each series' Amazon Rainforest episode. Grylls, at one point, tried to cross a stream by cobbling together a ladder of vines and wood. I think it was too short. I believe he ended up walking through the water or possibly jumping across. On the other hand, the Survivorman episode ended with Stroud getting up to take a piss and then being chased to the nearby village by a jaguar in the dead of night.

I kind of want to watch a Michael Bay survival movie starring Bear Grylls. Explosions! Piss drinking!

The shiat he did made me think he had a death wish: who floats through a rushing river going into a mountain, not even knowing if the river actually comes out. That was either faked or they knew the outcome. Weird show, in any case.

His director's commentary of some of the BigFoot episodes is worth watching, he talks a bit about all of the wachos he's talked to while making the series.

A few years someone posted a video where they went over the same area in Utah where Les did a show. I liked Les ok, but the video highlighted some of the tv production stuff that showed not everything is as portrayed.

That always seemed like a calculated action to me. Les is clearly the outdoors type, but made no secret of the fact that doing Survivorman could be a very dangerous job. I always suspected the whole bigfoot thing was Les figuring out how to get the network to pay for more camping trips without any of the danger AND while providing chumps to haul the camera gear for him. Not a bad gig if you can get it. I do enjoy the original show the most though.
