Bear Grylls is an absolute legend. His camera guy is more so Being strapped to the wing of a biplane while it inverts to let Bear jump is ....ed up IMO

I'm currently catching up with emails, please be patient

Les Stroud isn't too shabby. He doesn't jump out of planes or drink elephant shit water, but he goes out completely alone.

Bear looks so evil after drinking the first lot of Yak's blood.

He's a badass, just ask Leandro.

That may be completely true. But he also did all this: Bear Grylls - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Bear Grylls might not do everything as hardcore as presented in his show, but I wouldn't want anybody else on a deserted island. Except maybe a hot redhead.

And he definitely was British Special Forces, and drinks his own piss. That's a hardcore sumbitch.

Ray Mears is better

maybe not as bad ass, but thats due to the fact he does things properly and doesn't have to go to those extremes as he's already set up a nice camp or something

Ray Mears indeed. Given the choice of him or Bear on a desert island, I'd definitely go with Ray. With Mr. Mears I'd have a serviceable shelter set up by sunset, and would be brewing my own coconut vodka by the weekend. With Grylls I'd end up eating puffin shit and drinking seawater.

This x1000, Ray Mears KNOWS how to and DOES survive in the wild. Grylls just makes everything look harder than it actually is. His stunts might look badass, but theyre always checked before he does them.

It's kinda like a really safe version of jackass in the wild . He's just trying to make himself look badass by drinking piss...

I lost my faith in Les Stroud when I saw the behind the scenes episode of Survivorman. He doesn't know anything and basically starves himself 'til he's picked up.

It's not so much the "surviving" I find awesome, it's the fact that Bear Grylls will catch a salmon with his hands and eat it while it's still alive.

exactly. my dads military, and Bear Grylls is the only survivor person he will pay attention too. yeah he understands bear is put through many of these with a security crew 10 feet behind him, but if you had the funding, and you were about to jump over a 200 foot cliff, wouldnt you want a failsafe plan?

I will agree he is badass, but I prefer Ray Mears. Ray shows you important techniques and how to work with what you have, a more tool based method of survival. Bear Grylls is more pushing what you could do to survive, and doing lots of stunts (Half of which are unnecessary or dangerous). Plus, Ray talks a lot more about the history and heritige of survival techniques and the people who use them.

I like bear Grylls because of the shock value, but in terms of learning Ray Mears has taught me a lot more, like to tie plastic bags around plants to catch the consendation. Thats badass.

For his honeymoon he and his wife lived in the Canadian wilderness for a year using nothing but stone-age technology. He knows what he's doing.

Les Stroud is a Nancy. Stroud worries too much about how he looks on film instead of being a beast like Grylls. Survivorman is boring as hell to watch. The guy spends more time trying to setup nice shots of himself walking off in the distance.
