And then we have this guy, that does his best to stay in the wilderness alone simply because he hates crowds.

They're both a lot ******* tougher than everyone else here, so who gives a **** ?
#72 to #71 - anon (02/28/2013) [-]
******* agree. So tired of pain in the ass, moaning cunts who have to compare everything and make it compete.

Just watch the ******* show you like, and leave others to theirs.

Les Stroud does the exact same thing, but doesn't cheat, or do stupid **** . He shows how to actually survive.

If you can truly believe you can survive a situation if you watched it on television I am very worried about you.
User avatar #36 to #14 - Mr Ronok (02/28/2013) [-]
but bear does **** no normal human being would do just to prove he can do them. like the one amazon episode, he comes to this like 200 foot deep ravine, and instead of walking around it, uses vines to climb down one side and back up. what normal human being would do that? Les does things a normal average person would be able to do
User avatar #39 to #36 - mountainyard (02/28/2013) [-]
******** . If you were in a situation where you had no way of walking around? He teaches you how to APPLY the things he shows to other places and/or situations!
User avatar #60 to #39 - Mr Ronok (02/28/2013) [-]
so youre saying, if for some reason you were lost in the rainforest and came across a massive ravine, that you would use vines to climb down it and up the other side because you saw bear grylls do it.
User avatar #103 to #60 - pottie (03/01/2013) [-]
I would happily do 100% of the **** that bear does if i got paid as much as him. just sayin...

If I'm ever i a life threatening situation like the ones on the shows, I'm gonna use stuff I learned from survivor man before I use the stuff I learn from Man v. Wild.

Same here bro. I have a man crush on Les Stroud! what a man

So, who took that picture of Stroud at the end?
#149 to #18 - abosi (03/01/2013) [-]
multiple cameras. he often has shots of him walking away with the big tripod on his shoulder
#228 to #18 - anon (03/01/2013) [-]
Consider the following; he has 2 cameras?
#252 to #18 - anon (03/01/2013) [-]
He has multiple cameras on each trip.
User avatar #122 to #18 - HOLYCARP (03/01/2013) [-]
It was the tv crew at the end of an episode when they pick him up, or he has two tripods, one for camera, one for camcorder.
#132 to #18 - anon (03/01/2013) [-]
he holds a camera on a pole
User avatar #19 to #18 - UncleCurtis (02/28/2013) [-]
he carries more than on camera with him.
#21 to #19 - laxwarriord (02/28/2013) [-]
Bit lucky none of them break really.
User avatar #22 to #21 - rainiar (02/28/2013) [-]
They break a lot, he carries repair kits with him.
User avatar #24 to #22 - blopant (02/28/2013) [-]
not to mention sometimes uses broken cameras for parts. like making fishing hooks and the like.

Wouldn't it be good of Grylls to 			****		 up on purpose so that if someone also 			*****		 up, which can and does happen, they also know what to do in those situations?

I'm not disagreeing with you, but Les's approach is to show you how not to **** up, a slightly different stategy from Bear. Les sometimes shows what to watch out for so you don't get yourself into a bad situation in the first place.

Doesn't matter to me, they're both 10x more bad-ass than I am.

User avatar #59 - ilovehitler (02/28/2013) [-]
Yes, ignore everything else Grylls has done. Completely ignore he was in the british SAS, which may just be the most badass unit ever. Ignore that he climbed mount everest only 12 months after breaking three vertebrae. Ignore that he crossed the north atlantic in a rigid, inflatable open boat, battling force 8 gale winds.
Yeah, he's definitely a total pussy.
#123 to #59 - anon (03/01/2013) [-]
he also skinned a dead leopard seal (or normal seal or whatever) and wore it's skin as a water tight vest. not sure how well it worked at that exactly but hey, dude made a shirt out of an animals skin no problem.

this conversation is bankrupt of any value anyway, bear's show is gone, lock the door and throw away the key. or in op's case, shove it up his ass for an enema because the water is fetid and unsuitable to drink. (also on bear's show)
User avatar #86 to #59 - sissywoo (03/01/2013) [-]
It clearly states in the beginning that he is a badass, just not as much as stroud.

"who makes bear look like a goddamn pansy ass schoolboy away from mommy and daddy at summer camp"
Tell me what les has done that makes Bear ************ Grylls look like that.
User avatar #98 to #90 - sissywoo (03/01/2013) [-]
*makes* him look like

its called compare and contrast
User avatar #146 to #98 - ilovehitler (03/01/2013) [-]
Look at my last line. I'm asking you what Les has done to make Bear Grylls, IN COMPARISON, look like a goddamn pansy ass schoolboy away from mommy and daddy at summer camp. I didn't include 'in comparison' because I thought it painfully obvious it was implied.
#117 to #98 - anon (03/01/2013) [-]
Shhhh... Subtly is a difficult concept for the denizens of the internet. If it's not pseudo-science and basic physics formulas, these creatures become very confused/

Yes, creatures like anons are painfully unaware of subtly and implications.

he also trained with the French Foreign Legion

I have an SAS handbook on survival, and yeah, anyone who actually can do any of that stuff has my vote for badass.

two possible answers: one - this is a pre-drop picture while the transport crew that drops him off is still with him, or two - He has a camera on a post that he is holding out to the side of himself. Notice that the one he's holding over his shoulder is a VIDEO camera.

les would be annoyed of bear for that he ask can we go now so many times
User avatar #87 to #79 - chaosengine (03/01/2013) [-]
Les would laugh when Bear asks him if they can share a tent. Les has scared off lions using a mother ******* FLAME THROWER he made out of a hot air balloon he flew into the savanna by himself.
User avatar #89 to #87 - candlejackismyhomi (03/01/2013) [-]
"He made out of a hot air balloon."

He's so goddamn genius, he figured out how to operate the balloon he used to fly into the ******* savanna. Man, he's ******* 2cool4skool. Praise be to Les, bringer of already supplied fire.
User avatar #134 to #89 - chaosengine (03/01/2013) [-]
That wasn't the point I was trying to make, and it was poorly worded. hehe.

My intention is that he flew it out and made a shelter that protected him from all the dangers using a big balloon. They've both done some pretty awesome things but I'd be more impressed if Bear actually had at least 1 episode where he had no help doing things.
User avatar #139 to #134 - candlejackismyhomi (03/01/2013) [-]
He has done some awesome things, but I don't feel that episode is the best showcase of his talents. For, he did spend most of his time in the pre-made shelter that the accident created.
Let's not forget that in another episode, he'd burned a shelter down.
I feel that both shows have their own distinctive purposes. My example will be that other survivalist show, "Dual Survival", in which the pair regularly recreate survival situations already reported, or walk through scenarios. I feel Les is more of an entertainment situation, where as I feel like I'm learning skills through Bear. I don't want to discredit either survivalist, as they're both extraordinary men, and certainly do more than I can.

Also; I apologize for the edge I used in my post.
User avatar #145 to #139 - chaosengine (03/01/2013) [-]
A valid point my good man, and apology accepted in every which way.
#237 - icefall (03/01/2013) [-]
Chill mofos let me settle the conflicts.

Les Stroud does go alone and does everything himself which is pretty badass, but he is more emphasizing the skills needed to survive and thus doing less risky stuff.

On the other hand, even though Grylls has a crew, this does not mean that he is safer and out of risk. None of the crew members are survival specialists, Grylls is the one that has to take care of them. Also, since he emphasizes the dangers of the wilderness he does stuff that is way riskier. I mean, Les stroud would never go down a cliff or a waterfall or a ******* well like Grylls.

They are both badass, just that in different ways.

They both teach you how to survive in situations. Bear Grylls just does it without pointlessly putting his life in danger.

They essentially teach the same thing.
User avatar #100 to #25 - robotvoice ONLINE (03/01/2013) [-]
Les does it without drinking urine.

Their shows are very different though. Bear purposely puts himself into some insane positions to show people how to deal with them. Les just...survives. They're both badasses.

PS: I love how this completely ignores the fact Bear was in the SAS, one of the most demanding and intense units worldwide.
#82 to #74 - anon (03/01/2013) [-]
The point is that Bear lies...he makes it seem like he's actually in danger when really he's completely safe.

I don't give a **** if he was in the SAS.
User avatar #84 to #82 - Konigsteiger (03/01/2013) [-]
It's not lying. The techniques he demonstrates in his shows are absolutely valuable to people that may find themselves in similar situations. So what if he goes and sleeps somewhere while filming? He still has an awesome show that shows various methods of surviving in harsh conditions.

If being in the SAS does not factor into someone's badassness in your opinion, your opinion is not one I'd bother paying attention to.
#97 to #82 - gaaay (03/01/2013) [-]
Right, you jump out of a helicopter and into an ocean with strong riptides/currents pulling you down, and a bunch of parachute cords wrapping around you, and then tell me how safe you are.
#96 to #74 - putridgrim (03/01/2013) [-]

It attached to his hip and he kind of supports the arm a bit.   
   
   
   
If you were serious, that could have gone both ways.
