What about Survivor Man?


I did not want and do not want to see that guy lugging his cameras all around. He has the energy of the Pope, and stays in one area basically. Man vs wild, Man , Women Wild and Dual Survival are much better. But survivorman was the first of these types of shows, so I commend him on that.


Agreed. He was creepy and when compared side by side I would much rather watch MvW then watch survior man rig a tripod as he digs a hole then is sped up. Lack of production offers a realism to the expierence, yet I still prefer the production value of MvW to Surviorman.

Got fired?

Better drink my own piss.

At least he doesn't stay in a hotel and he actually tries to survive!

Reports of Bear in Hotels was highly exaggerated. He did twice what any other person would do to survive, even though he had a rescue crew right there with him. Dirty bird water enema, Urine drinking, Throwing ropes across ravines and trusting they will hold as he goes across, eating anything and everything, making fire out of water and spit, running up and down mountains, sleeping in Kangaroos, etc.

 

Survivor man just barely eats during his 4-5 day trips.

......... 0_o

Did you also know that some of those were set up? (The climbing things, hiking, throwing the rope.) He is practically an actor, no doubt he teaches people stuff and does some daring things but most of it is smooth sailing with his emergency crew.

Of course they were set up. Still he is showing us what to do when you have to do it. Did he have to dig in a bee hive and get stung in the eyes? No. He even sometimes said, "I had a tibetan monk leave me a dead  goat so I could show you what I was going to do with it. Either way, when it was all said and done, you have no doubt that he could make it out of any situation alive.

Why would anyone make a thread about that guy? Is he even back from his ban yet?

He is, but you hardly notice since he deletes all his comments!



I'm sure he can get work on another network.

Travel, Food, Animal Planet... they could all fit his, err, lifestyle choices.

No, well, at least I don't think he is...

Because he was so good that he didn't need to do any of that.

Or it was because he was so exhausted from lugging that camera equipment around that he was not able to. I can just see him pulling it through the sahara desert, stopping only to drink his own piss.
