Bear Grylls is a horse's ass

I figured the Discovery Channel show "Man vs. Wild," staring Bear Grylls had been cancelled, until recently I again saw ads for the show. Last year I was tricked into watching Bear's show after acquiring a minor addiction to Les Stroud's Survivor Man and confusing it with Bear’s.
The first show I had the misfortune of watching was an episode featuring Bear in the Canadian Rockies. In the middle of the program--the premise being a how-to guide on outdoor survival--Bear tells the audience that he will follow a river to civilization by SWIMMING through the class II/III rapids.
To make matters worse, he and his production crew concealed the fact that Bear was wearing a PFD under his clothes during his "dramatic" swim for survival. I assume he survived since he is still making television programs. He may have even had hot, sloppy sex with a local virgin, but I didn’t have the stomach to watch the clown insult himself any longer. Is it the short winter days talking, or I am right about this?

Yes, Les Stroud, Survivorman is great. I was tricked in the same way and don't watch his crap anymore.

I think this is the same guy that was in costa rica explaining how you could tell a stream was ok to drink from and then later showing him puking like a mad man. That with the fact that he climbed up to the top of the canopy to have a look at......holy cow, more trees. It was funny.
