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.

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

********. 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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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)

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
