“Man vs. Wild” star Bear Grylls has been fired from the Discovery Channel over a “continuing contractual dispute,” the channel said.

The 37-year-old British T.V. personality has been with The Discovery Channel since 2006, when “Man vs. Wild” premiered.

“Due to a continuing contractual dispute with Bear Grylls, Discovery has terminated all current productions with him,” a Discovery spokesperson told ABC News.  

Grylls was fired after he refused to participate in two unannounced projects he was contracted for, sources told The Hollywood Reporter.

Grylls has been filmed crossing piranha-infested rivers, stranded in the deadly swamps of the Florida Everglades, paragliding onto the edge of the Andes to follow rivers into the Ecuadorean jungle and demonstrating how to make a snow cave, find water in deep tunnels and avoid frostbite in Iceland’s arctic environment.

But in 2007, allegations surfaced that Grylls was retiring to a comfortable hotel room between takes of his roughing it in the wild.

Grylls’ representative could not be reached for comment. It is unclear what his next move will be.

 

A fan of the shows take on this. "This is utter and complete Bullshit!" What do you think? Can we do Man Vs Wild without Bear?

His memes will Never die though!

 



I really liked the show until I found out it was fake. It's hard to tout his survival methods, especially the times when he appears to be starving or dehydrated and seemingly had no way to get basic nourishment except to kill, butcher, and eat wild animals and find water in ingenious albeit disgusting ways. He claimed he was only showing methods on survival for education but lied in every episode in the amount of peril he was in and always found ways to be naked on screen.

Better yet, why drink his own when there is probably some at the bottom of the ball pit or the orb he is sitting inside in the picture from the last kid who was there. Why waste his own natural resources when there is plenty all around!

I truly do love them all, but that doesn't mean they are without flaws.  I see the good and bad in all, and while I certainly do have a favorite, that doesn't mean I don't love them all.  I criticize becuase I Care.

Well it was rigged at some points, but they cleared it all up in the following seasons. Sometimes he will get help from the crew. Still, with all the crazy things he did, it more than made up for the occasional Hotel stay by Mr. Grylls.
