Arctic Explorer Tina Sjogren Slams Bear Grylls

Arctic explorer and adventure enthusiast Tina Sjogren has slammed Bear Grylls in a recent interview.

There are also problems with Edward Michael Grylls’ claims of being part of the famed SAS. It has been discovered that Grylls wasn’t part of the elite unit, the SAS 22, but the Territorial Army, SAS TA 21.
