Bear Grylls. British Special Forces man, adrenaline junkie, and survival expert on Discovery Channel's "Man Vs Wild." Bear is a survivor and actually teaches others some basic survival techniques as well as stuff most people may not think of if they were stranded in a desert, jungle, isle of the sea, the arctic or swamp. Bear has had things on the barbie like rattle snakes, mice, skunks, and eaten countless grubs, worms, vegetation, et al.

I’d like to see him catch a black mamba with his bare hands. That would be special.
With his bare hands, I want to see him catch and eat a live box jellyfish...with bees in it’s mouth.
I want to see him kill a rattlesnake with his teeth.
Bear Grylls. British Special Forces man, adrenaline junkie, and survival expert on Discovery Channel’s “Man Vs Wild.” Bear is a survivor and actually teaches others some basic survival techniques as well as stuff most people may not think of if they were stranded in a desert, jungle, isle of the sea, the arctic or swamp. Bear has had things on the barbie like rattle snakes, mice, skunks, and eaten countless grubs, worms, vegetation, et al.
But I want to see Bear really use his skills. He can do better than field mice and rattle snakes. In future “Man VS Wild” episodes I want to see him consume the following on my wish list.
25. Prairie Dog
23. California Condor
22. Mallard Duck
21. African Elephant
20. Gila Monster
19. Black Attar
18. Utah June Sucker
17. Desert Tortoise
16. Emperor Penguin
15. Golden Eagle
14. Yellow Tail Butterfly
13. Spotted Owl
11. Crab Grass
10. Anything from a McDonald’s dumpster
3. Killer Whale
2. Giant Squid
1. A Pit Bull
Yes as Bear says in a survival situation it is all about opportunity and a little luck to get a meal to get you energized to move on in your pursuit of making it out alive. No living thing should be off the menu that won’t kill you. This includes enviornmentalists’ dream animals and other assorted oddities. It would be hard to prosecute a person for cooking up an endangered deer because that is what wandered into his path.
Better to eat the black bear than be eaten by the black bear I always say. So if he can put away some grubs, he should be able to down a dolphin just fine. After all it is in the name of living and not becoming another death statistic of the wild.
I only want to see him eat one thing. A Delta Smelt.
It would please me to no end to watch the whack jobs in california go apoplectic.
watched an episode where he ate a cave spider - I almost passed out
I’d like to see him eat a proper English or Irish breakfast at a restaurant while talking about politics and the economy.
Ha! I didn’t know what one was until just now - good one!
Spotted owl, kangaroo rat, Mountain Gorilla, Bactrian Camel, Ethiopian Wolf, Saiga, Takhi, Iberian Lynx, Kakapo, Arakan Forest Turtle, Sumatran Rhinoceros, Javan Rhino, Brazilian Merganser, Axolotl, Leatherback Sea Turtle, Northern White Rhinoceros, Gharial, Vaquita, Philippine Eagle, Brown Spider Monkey, California Condor, Island Fox, Black Rhinoceros, Chinese Alligator
Only slightly off-topic.
Bear Grylls and the other survival shows are the reason you’ll never find this non-smoking FReeper without a (filled) Zippo.
“Survival Expert” my ass.
You try half of the stuff he shows on his show and you’re a guaranteed CASUALTY.
Sure, let’s climb that huge tree “without” a safety harness.
Slide down that glacier. Wheeeeee!
Jump into that river “without” a float vest.
He’s a complete joke.
Meanwhile, Guys like Les Stroud and the two cool dudes on “Dual Survival” are really doing it. No tricks, no hidden vests, emergency crew, or hotels.
Now I see Gerber has marketed a ton of “Bear” crap with orange handles. Junk.
Climbinb stuff and eating creepy stuff.
That’s about all he does.
I’ve seen him do some of the dumbest things you could do out there. Jump off of cliffs into a river, use old ropes that he found to go down cliffs, slide down hill sides. He is going to end up getting himself killed.
I’ve told people many times that doing the stuff you see Bear Grylls do on Man vs Wild will get you killed.
That being said, I do enjoy watching the show but as a “what would I do in that situation” sort of thing. About 100% of the time, what I would do is not what Bear does (e.g. don’t crawl down the frozen waterfall - go around, don’t swim across the lake in 50 degree water - walk around, etc.)
I want to see him eat his own arm.
