I'm a big fan of his. I don't get why people liked Les Strouds survivorman better. I don't. I don't know, but Bear Grylls has that same 'thing' Steve Irwin had. Always jumping into danger in a stupid, but entertaining way.

Steve Irwin: "This is the most dangerous snake in the world. One bite could easily kill you! Let's pull it's tail..."

Bear Grylls: "This is lethal. Once you go in the river you will probably die. Let me just swim to the other side to get that old bottle soeone left there..."

He doesn't actually do those things. He's never done anything dangerous on the show. It's all for show and entertainment, but he's never, ever, not one single tiny little time in any real danger. Not anymore than anyone else is in their day to day life.

There are multiple videos on the net showing how fake he and his show is. There is a video showing him "dangerously" hopping over this small canyon in one of his episodes, then it cuts to a random person being filmed in the exact same area, and it's about 300 feet from a road with cars passing by, and it's not deep, and the "canyon" ends like 10 feet ahead of where he "jumps" over it.

His entire show and everything he does minus killing animals for no reason whatsoever is fake.

As for why people give credit to Survivorman, it's because he's actually out there surviving. You don't see him doing those dangerous leaps and crap, because it's all fake and for pure entertainment. It's as good as being on a stage with a green screen. Survivorman is actaully out there and actually giving you tips on how to really survive, not play fake games and pretend.

Here's a different video showing how he does his "dangerous" acts, then showing how it's all just an act and fake in the second part of the video.

I don't think you actually got the point of that post.

Anyway, it's not like Les Stroud is in any real big danger himself. It's pretty naive to think that Les Stroud was out there risking his life for entertainment, while Bear Grylls isn't. Both are out there pulling stupid stunts, and both men do have safety around them. Even Les said in one of his episodes that he has a safety crew following him around all the time.

Point is, both are fake in that regard, but Bear actually does it in an entertaining way.

I am also a Huge Fan of Bear. What he has done in his short life already is incredible!!

The man behind the Show is the actual Adventure.

His show may be fake, but the man is not.



Even with the camera cuts and an invisible safety rope, the guy has balls. Plus I never thought the show was real because it says in the very beginning that it's not. And it's on TV. So these were my first two clues.

the killing of animals that are predators is not fake, but the fake stuff would be useful too i imagine if you used in real life. i dont think he would try komodos though because only steve knew how to handle them
