Man vs. Wild on the Discovery Channel is one of the best shows on basic cable. It’s essentially a show about the main survivalist (Bear Grylls) trying to survive harsh environments and make his way to safety. Edward Michael “Bear” Grylls, a British mountaineer and motivational speaker, also has a survival show in the UK called “Born Survivor” very similar to “Man vs. Wild”.

After careful research on the part of OTD, there seemed to be many more Bear Grylls nut-huggers than there were haters out there; for what the guy does on the show, both for educational purposes and for entertainment … it’s well deserved. Although he is known for sleeping in the occasional hotel during a film shoot, the show is compelling, and Bear Grylls is quite funny - though he doesn’t always intend to be.

The Top Ten Crazy and/or Funny things that Bear Grylls has done on Man vs. Wild:

  1. Performed three consecutive burpees1 to get “warm” after jumping into ice cold water
  2. Pissed into his canteen and drank it to keep himself hydrated
  3. Pissed into his canteen and placed it against his body for warmth during a cold and frigid night
  4. Pissed on his shirt then wrapped it around his head to help prevent heat stroke
  5. Sadistically kept a snake alive as a temporary pet in order to keep it fresh until he got hungry; then proceeded to bash its head against some rocks to kill it; then skinned and ate it
  6. Squeezed the juices out of a handful of elephant dung straight into his open mouth for a “refreshing” drink
  7. Stuffed his shirt with some damp itchy hay until he resembled a scarecrow in order to insulate himself from the cold
  8. Made a fur coat from the stinky, rotten carcass of a dead deer which fell off the side of a mountain
  9. Bit into a freshly caught live fish until its guts spewed out, then pompously referred to it as “the best sushi you’ll EVER have
  10. Jerk-ishly karate-chopped an obviously dead rabbit TWICE in the back of its head as the coup de grĂ¢ce 2 prior to gutting it

Honorable Mention: Wore his sweaty, 3-day old socks as “gloves” because his hands were getting cut-up on sharp lava rocks as he trekked near a volcano. FYI - You can actually see him “trekking” on the lava rocks on the cover of the Man vs. Wild DVD.

Good Lord, for 5 minutes straight??? You’re doing it in place of running 25 miles.
