TV News - 'Man vs. Wild' Now Truth vs. Deception - AOL News
Still an awesome show.
he sure does have an unnatural passion for pissing on himself or ingesting urine. it is a little strange.
not really surprising at all
my biggest problem with the show is how careless and dangerous he is at times and that a lot of his advice is just piss poor
i realize that he has shit tons of mountaineering experience but the average Joe watching the show does not, and its not really all that safe to go running and sliding down a fucking mountain, or tie together some rappelling gear out of vines and rappel down a 100ft waterfall
makes for good TV but its VERY shitty advice
i prefer survivorman
seems a bit more "real" and has beter advice
it's not something a 'normal' person would do... i guess Bear was trained by England forces or something to be like what our navy SEALs are... but, I still watch it.
SurvivorMan> Man vs Mild anyday
I thought I saw an episode once, turns out I was watching a german porno. THat guy is all about some pea
infact I told somebody I was going camping yesterday after watching too much Man V Wild and they said "well don't drink your urine"
I might build an A framw while I'm out camping though, I'll post pics
Tim Treadwell was the ultimate survivor.
Aron Ralston is the ultimate surviver

I heard about that dude. Didn't he go back and find his arm so he could have a funeral for it? Crazy shit.

so you're telling me a guy who got eaten by a bear is a great survivalist? that doesn't make sense. you should be alive if you are that great.
i think you should take the crown if you sit under a rock for 5 days then cut off your own arm with a dull ass utility tool.
Yeah the guy who cut off his own arm is hardcore but the bear story has something the other one doesn't: a punchline.
Ralston FTW! That takes some fuckin balls and intense pain to amputate your own arm with a pair of pliers.
survivorman is better than bear grylls. its funny i was having this same argument at a party 2 nights ago. the main thing i liked about survivorman was that he took his own camera equipment. bear has people following him around. they can and would help if bear was in real trouble. Les Stroud wouldnt have anyone, just like any other joe schmoe stranded in the middle of nowhere. also Les is more of an opportunist. he uses what he has. if you notice most of his episodes hes stranded with a broken down truck, or a down airplane, or a broken snow mobile. he just seems to give advice aimed at the normal person, not someone trained in the british special forces.
and yea, that ralston guy is BA.
the bear guy was just fucking insane
i've watched the documentaries on that guy
Timothy is some dumbshit who thought wild bears were harmless, etc. He didn't have to survive there; it was his decision to pretty much live with the bears. Ironic, that he was killed by the very bears he was trying to "save".
Chris Rock:"those bears didn't go crazy, those bears went wild fucking bear". hahaha
ROFL! Those guys were getting into this argument over these 2 shows. But if you think about it... how much bad luck can that dude have. Oh my ... my truck this week, snow mobile the next. Oh snap my airplane goes down this week. That dude must have broken 7 mirriors for that bad luck.
That's sarcasm right? They put him in situations that may happen to a normal person.
But yea, I prefer SurvivorMan but I watch both. I love camping and shit like that though. I'm going to go get lost in the woods, Peace. haha
i'm just looking at the two guys' credentials. Bear's been through special forces training, etc. Sure, they might be famous now and have tons of cash, but he's been in those situations before. The other show is good too, but I'm not sure who that guy is... he doesn't 'act' very smart sometimes.
