I DO agree that Les is more of a badass, and it's cooler that he's actually on his own doing all this hardcore ****... but I prefer the SHOW Man vs Wild

Yeah I agree. Since Bear has a camera crew that can help in case of emergency he does ballsier stuff which makes the show more entertaining imo.

No doubt is Les a badass but all he does is set up camp 70% of the show.

I saw one the episodes he did. He brought a gun, but only because he was absolutely forced to because of the threat of bears in the area.

Why the **** does OP think he can just come on here and share his goddamn opinion?

TL;DR this is the internet, no opinions

actually no... while bear grylls does indeed take shortcuts, he puts himself in FAR more dangerous situations, plus he spent years in the special forces. He also does things that one would need to do to survive, with an insanely large amount of survival knowledge.   
While Les stroud just wings it... the situations he puts himself in are far less threatening, and while i like them both, Bear grylls is pretty badass...les stroud not so much.

my dad is ex military who also had **** loads of survival training. he says bear takes too many risks that can get you harmed. if youre hurt you cant get food and thus die. sure if it was just him in the wild and he was trained sure but hes telling novice people how to survive ....novice people. jumping off a cliff is a dumb move then trying to find another way. sure it makes the show more fun to watch but in survival you have to secure food water and shelter till recue....you cant get that stuff seriously hurt or dead.

and dont forget that theres a lot of morons out there that will monkey see monkey do.

he shows how to escape without rescue, thats why he takes those risks, he isn't teaching how to survive in the wild, he teaches how to survive through it

I know, Grylls was trained in the military so he is more prepared to tackle precarious situations better than Stroud can, plus he have a crew that will lend a hand should his life really in danger. So, he's more covered than Stroud. While Grylls is indeed an undeniable badass, he does it knowing help is always just a few steps away. Stroud is on his own; if he ***** up, he's done for. He can't take huge risks like Grylls unless they're an absolute necessity. Not to mention he's much older and does not have the same physique as Grylls.

To me, Bear Grylls is shock value while Les Stroud is realism.

My only issue with Stroud is he often knows how long he has to survive and where the rescue will be, often right where he starts.

But Bear never actually has to get rescued, so that point you just brought up is null.

Honestly, I like both shows anyway. Man vs Wild for the more fast paced survival and Survivalman for the realistic survival.

Stroud does carry a "panic button", a GPS transponder that he can use to call for rescue if need be. I don't know if he's ever used it.

He has used it once in the episode when he was drifting in the ocean in the escape raft. I think he has only used it to see if his team still has communication with him or knows where he is or something like that.

If stroud doesn't have a camera crew with him, how was that last picture taken? he clearly is holding his only camera.

He normally starts each episode with a full crew of people before the abandon him.

Or, more rationally thinking, this was a promotional photo-op, and not from the show itself.

First off, he brings more than one camera with him
secondly, Tripod.

he carries back ups, I remember one episode he almost had to cut short because all the rain was destroying his cameras

I remember that episode. He'd just eaten the heart of a reindeer. It's Bear alright.

He had a couple different jackets throughout the movie. That was after the bit the neck out of the zombie.

Don't you change your clothes occasionally? I sure hope so.
