Wonder what really happened. Someone finally figure it out and cancel him? Some estate of someone who died sue? Curiouser, and curiouser. Haven't seen the Gryllis series, but at least his credentials show something more impressive than Stroud's which include Garbage Collector (Wiki), Musician and paddling the canoes for rich city folks looking for a "wilderness experience"... Lastly, these shows are ENTERTAINMENT, peeps. THey keep making money by KEEPING YOU WATCHING. Shocking and weird stuff keeps you watching, and is "entertaining." Real survival is boring, difficult and really dangerous: not entertaining. There are REAL places to learn those skills. Please don't depend on TV shows when your life is at stake.

Please. Do yourselves a favor. This guy puts our stuff that will leave you dead.

"Veteran of the Bush my hind parts." This guy is a self promoting phoney with no real survival skills. LOOK AT HIS PERSONAL BIO ON HIS OFFICIAL WEBSITE. He has no training or experience in survival. I'll take a grad from ANY escape and evasion class anytime. If you follow his advice you probably will die. Striking his magnesium fire starter with the CUTTING EDGE of his knife? (Utah Canyonlands) IDIOT. Leaving a camp with water thirty feet down (I'm ledged up, if I climb down I'll never get back up."), hiking off after disassembling a transportation means (the mountain bike) looking for water, and then climbing down 150 feet to a dry creek bed in an arroyo whose bottom he cannot see??? Dolt. Then, if you are lost, tryig to find a way out to civilization you move DOWNSTREAM, not up. Do yourself a favor, get any military manual on survival or a good backpacking book (Collin Fletcher is dated but good) and learn REAL wilderness skills. I hope his legal disclaimers are really good for the day when someone dies from following his tripe.

John, the survivor guy you mentioned getting stalked and eaten by a lizard was a mockumentary episode from Lost Tapes, Devil Dragon. Its is season one of the lost tapes series. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Lost_Tapes_episodes#Season_1:_2008-09 Hi all, Les Stroud is still very much alive.

A man was found dead in Ontario while trying to complete the techiques shown on survivor man. People of course, being human, automatically assumed that it was Les Stroud himself, that had died, and not someone else who took it upon themselves to try his wilderness survival without the proper knowledge or training. A very unfortunate rumor, for sure. I believe that the reason this rumor is circulating is due to the fact that one of his avid fans has died trying Les Stroud’s techniques.
