Born Survivor Bear Grylls

Urine is 95% water, so it’s safe to drink. It’s best to drink it quickly though, because it is a breeding ground for bacteria.
Bear Grylls

I was made aware of Bear Grylls by Carrie; she told me about him and his series called Man Vs. Wild on Friday. I took the time to watch the five aired episodes of season 2 yesterday. It was pretty funny. I like the fact that he only has the clothes on his back, a knife and a water bottle to help him in his quests. Unlike Survivorman, he doesn’t bother with complaining about moving about the cameras, he has a film crew following him around, which is the way it should be.

Right, this bear/crocodile/alligator/snake looks pretty peeved off; I wouldn’t recommend going any nearer. What you do, is that you back off, not showing your back, and give it a wide berth.

This is from his wiki entry:

Bear Grylls (born Edward Michael Bear Grylls on 7 June 1974) is a British mountaineer and adventurer as well as best-selling author, television presenter, and international motivational speaker. Grylls, a former member of the British Special Forces, made his name by becoming, at the age of 23, the youngest Briton to climb Mount Everest and return alive in 1998.

He hosts the television program on Channel 4 in the UK called Man vs. Wild (on the Discovery Channel worldwide). Grylls is currently filming new HD episodes of the Man Vs Wild born survivor series.

Normally, when he comes upon a river he can’t cross or a cliff he can’t scale down, he jumps on a tree and wiggles his way down. He eats something disgusting every episode, from grubs to spiders and scorpions.

Grylls has got a blog and a website as well.
