You Still Have A Shot At Bear Grylls


Judging from the amount of e-mails I receive about Bear Grylls, I guess many of you are breathing a sigh of relief today. Others might be asking who in the hell is Bear Grylls. Those who are asking have probably never seen the show Man vs. Wild. You know. The show where Bear eats raw fish and drinks his own, umm, urine. He is also the subject of some FFF fun, so you may want to take a peek if you have not already.

Anyway, Bear was in the Antarctic doing something promoting alternative fuels. It wasn't for his television show and I'm sure Discovery was happy about that. Bear took a nasty fall on December 5th and decimated his shoulder. They finally managed to airlift him out of there today. From what I understand, the guy has been in immense pain and needed surgery quickly. To sit in the middle of nowhere waiting for weather to clear just so you can get a flight to get help is probably not something he envisioned.

Now, I know he has two kids, but I think he is single so if anyone wants to head over to South Africa and then on to the UK to help him out with those sponge baths, now is your chance.

Oh yeah. He'd be welcome to come here to recuperate. You don't think my husband would mind, do you?

Les Stroud could take Bear Brylls in 2 seconds flat.

Les FTW!

I just read elsewhere that his wife is due to give birth in the next few weeks... maybe not so single. Wikipedia is backing me up on that, whether or not it's correct is another matter...

Also one of his sons is apparently named Marmaduke. FYI. Marmaduke.

shara grylls will be surprised to hear that she's not his wife.

So which one is it, CDANers? Married or no? This seems to be of some significance to more than one of us...

He's super cute and has a nice bod for a non-hairy guy.

I've learned a lot from his show and from the Survivorman show. Is Les Stroud Survivorman's name?

First off I want to say that It is so much easier to navigate between screens today. Vast improvement. My daughter is headed to South Africa in the spring for a little vacation maybe she will run into him. I know she watches his show. Now I know why. Drinks his own urine huh??? I guess it's better than drinking someone elses.

which one of them was caught cheating on the show?
they caught them staying at hotels and staging stuff for the cameras. i remember it in the news.

Kelly said...

Bear Grylls is the one in that incident, bionic bunny, but both men admit to using consultants and setting up scenarios to illustrate survival techniques. The difference is that Les Stroud (Survivorman) does actually stay out alone for the alotted time, while Bear Grylls has a crew. I would still rather be stranded on a desert island with Bear than Les any day.

Stacy said...

Bear is such a poser. He's cute and all, but some of his 'survival tips' will get you killed.

I used to know Les Stroud when he was a musician / song writer. Even purchased a five year license to one of his songs. He's a very nice man and I was kind of surprised at his career turn. Good for him.

Well I just want to know if he had surgery to repair his shoulder.

Did it heal on it's on? Did he just do physical therapy or something?

Anyone know? I been searching for an answer everywhere and all I find is that he hurt it and may have to have surgery.
