Ultimate survivor

So who is the best outdoor man ?
I can watch Ray Mears for hours, but Bear seems to be quite popular too.

Re: Ultimate survivor

Love it.

The broadcaster said Grylls carried out his own stunts and did place himself in perilous situations, "though he does so within clearly-observed health and safety guidelines required on productions of this kind".

The terms 'perilous situations' and 'health and safety' dont really sit together as working partners

"However, we take any allegations of misleading our audiences seriously and will be looking into this further with Diverse over the next few days."

For this read ; we got caught and we will sack someoone as a sacrifice to appease the gullible public

Re: Ultimate survivor

Edward?
Shortens to Ted?

So he's Teddy Bear Grylls?
Sounds like a hard man. Also, what is the 'SAS territorial army'?

Re: Ultimate survivor

Mr Mears has to be the main man.

No macho BS, Just straightforward knowledge,
an interest in the environent/culture he happens
to be visiting and the ability to make fire anywhere
on the planet.

Re: Ultimate survivor

Mears definately wins it. Bear is a fake and spends most of his time in hotels ordering room service.

Re: Ultimate survivor

What's that Sith Ifrikin due called, the one who photographs snakes? I reckon he's a fake too.

It's Keith Floyd for me, everytime................

Seriously, Ray Mears is The Daddy when it comes to eating leaves.

Have you seen the one where he revisits the Hadza tribe in Africa and gives them an english longbow to use and shows them a video of the last ime he visited...
He had tears in his eyes at the end they ( the tribes men) all were so happy to see him.
He seems such a genuine and nice guy, I've been a huge fan for years

Re: Ultimate survivor

Simple test: which one looks more capable of feeding himself?

Ray Mears isn't excatly skinny, so clearly knows how to find grub.

I vote Ray.

Re: Ultimate survivor

Have no idea who Bear Grylls is but it sounds like the top seller on an Appalachian restaurant menu.......

But I agree... Mears is a bit of a porker, so looks like he's no slouch at finding food in the wilderness. He may look like a family butcher, but he gets my vote.
