Our 11 Favorite Bear Grylls Survival Moments
Man vs. Wild has unfortunately been cancelled — and we’re going to miss cringing at insane Bear Grylls stunts like these.
By Doug Barry
Bear Grylls was recently fired by Discovery Channel for refusing to mate with a female rhino. We’re kidding — he would have had no problem doing that. Discovery actually canceled Bear’s show, Man vs. Wild, after six seasons due to a contract dispute. And despite the fact that Bear was sometimes caught sneaking off to hotels after the cameras stopped rolling, there’s no denying that the dude was a survival maniac. He toyed with deadly animals, dove into frozen lakes nude, and ate and drank things that normal people would have trouble merely looking at.
