    Nope, British through and through. Balls of British steel. :hbang:


    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.

    Survivor Man has a team too. He leads you to believe that he's all alone, but he's not. I saw one where he was in some Arctic region and they pulled him out because the crew wasn't safe or something. The tips he shows you aren't any less valid than the tips Bear shows. I feel that Les Stroud tells you stuff you learn in a book, but Bear shows you stuff that revolves around the most important survivor skill: Imagination.

    Never said one was better. Bear does seem a bit more entertaining tho.

    I do dare say that Bear Grylls is more badass than Chuck Norris.

    You go out in the wilderness and don't eat for days, then tell me drinking Yak water isn't necessary and brutal.

    All things considered, "Bear" is a cool ass name.

    Am I the only one that thinks he's a dramatic cunt? That, and how setup everything is. There have been many stories about him staying in luxury hotels whilst shooting.

    He's meant to be a survival expert, but he mostly just does shocking stuff for the camera. Can't hold a candle to Ray Mears.
