    All Ray Mears needs is a knife, and even without one ho could probably fashion one himself. The man could live happily on the moon.

    i respect les because he is alone and does everything himself

    (haul camera in place, walk back, walk past camera, walk back to camera, haul off gear

    he also has enough supplies to last a million years

    he's always taking apart cameras, and using solar blankets, and basically being a fucking douche

    plus, he doesn't really tell you how to survive

    he just complains about how shitty it is

    What are you talking about?

    You've never seen the show, have you?

    He never takes food or water with him.

    He only brings things you might find in your pocket, except for a multitool.

    And I've only seen him use a solar blanket once, and that was in alaska.

    he is kind of a douche though

    survival skills aside

    He brings a multi tool

    And about 6 cameras

    And blankets. And whatever else he feels like fucking bringing.

    You know how much shit is available in a camera to use? He just breaks them apart and uses all the pieces.

    Also, he complains THE WHOLE TIME

    I've never seen him break a camera apart, except to clean away moisture from some extremely hot days.

    Where are you getting this blanket stuff?

    I've seen a good number of episodes and never see blankets except in expecially harsh weather.

    And cmon, the man is there without radio for 5 days and no camera crew.

    I bet it's easy to not complain when you know that you'll be spending the night in a hotel.

    Speaking of bear, whats with him doing things that are dangerous and passing them off as survival skills.

    Like telling people to jump into glacial water because right over those hills there are hot springs.

    How would the average person know that?

    Or using a backpack as a life vest, and then he jumps in, and you can clearly see he's wearing a fucking life vest.

    Why use the back pack at all bear?

    Huh?

    That right, fuck you bear.

    He is dropped off with his clothes, a pair of cases for his camera equipment, his "trusty" harmonica, and a multi-tool. Usually, he also has random bits of everyday items that a stranded person in the given area might be likely to possess. He also carries a satellite phone for use in an emergency.[1]

    Stroud also often dismantles available equipment (e.g. bike, snowmobile, airplane) and puts it to another practical use.

    Ray Mears just exudes calmness in the most inhospitable places, and you just know he's going to be fine no matter what happens.

    He knows which plants to eat, to get water from, which are good for making string/fire/clothing/shelter

    He is a legend.

    The show has also garnered criticism concerning the quality of its survival advice. On March 13 2006, the show's first survival consultant, Ron Hood, posted on his Web site:

    "I want to remind everyone that Bear is very capable and highly skilled in survival skills. We both objected to portions of the show when we filmed but thought we knew that my narration would enlighten the viewers about the hows, whys and wherefores of what look like dangerous activities. When that narration was removed it left Bear looking like he was clueless. He is not clueless. He is clever, courageous and capable. If anyone can save this show it is Bear. As I posted when we started this project months ago, the show was supposed to be a new format that was drama driven with an educational and adventure component. The script I have looks nothing like the final show."

    "I think Discovery did the viewing public a serious disservice by excluding the educational narration and concentrating on travel. Someone WILL attempt river travel as shown and there will be problems. Others will run from camp because they hear noises... Someone will attempt a rappel with paracord. People are like that. Discovery holds a huge credibility advantage and that alone will act as an endorsement of the actions seen in the show. Keep in mind that a LOT of people saw the show and a few of them are ignorant enough to attempt what they saw. Disclaimers aside, the presentation looks feasible. The fact that some folks overlooked the errors just proves the point."[21]

    Arctic skier and explorer Tina Sjogren, who fell through the ice at the North Pole, reacted with disbelief when she saw Bear's demonstration of how to deal with falling in a frozen lake:

    "What is he doing? And who dug those hand-holds for him? There were two problems when I fell in the water. 1. There were no holds to grab when I tried to get out. 2. The thin edge of the ice kept breaking off under my weight. It's important to know that you have more time than you think in the water. Don't panic, and don't kick about. Take a deep breath before hauling yourself out - the air in your lungs will increase your buoyancy."

    "I definitely did not strip afterwards. That would have been extremely stupid - leading to instant hypothermia. Wet or dry, the clothes will insulate, giving you enough time to find a suitable place to make camp. You can roll in the snow to remove excess water from the clothing if you want to, but if you strip you'll really find yourself fast in trouble! There's nothing wrong with inexperience, we've all been there. But it's another matter when taught to a TV audience. Or when actors forget they're just that - it's like Sylvester Stallone starting to believe he actually is the World Heavyweight Champion. I have a hard time to believe the episode. Is it Bear for real? Eating a raw fish right after, too? That's the last thing you'd want to do - plus it's bad for you. Perhaps it's a comedy interpretation? I don't know what to think anymore. Why would people even want to watch this?"
    Grylls has stated numerous times on camera that he is not to receive any assistance unless his life is in danger. However, in July 2007 it was reported in the mainstream media that at least portions of some episodes were staged and that Bear did not always survive without help. The Discovery Channel said that future airings would be edited to reflect such things.

    I don't get what you have against these, they're used in situations that might occur.

    Like using things during a plane crash.

    Or getting lost biking in whereever.

    Or having your snowmobile breakdown miles from nowhere.

    It's practical survival tips.

    Look, the reason Bear strips whenever he's wet is because he's hot and everyone wants to see his naked body. Doesn't matter if it's good for survival, Bear Grylls is getting naked.

    I'd say one of the funniest things I ever heard (saw) my mom say was "LOL!!!" in a text message...

    When the hell did my mom learn how to text message and why is she now saying "LOL!!!" Last I checked she barely knew how to save a phone number in that cell phone. Now if I can just teach her "STFU!"
