In a realistic survival situation-why would you risk your life and waste your energy. For example - The episode where Bear crosses a valley with rope and the rope snaps, he is lucky to be alive. I would not take these unnecessary risks. With Les, I like to see him learning from the true survivalists with his new show, Beyond Survival. Some authentic skills can be learned from aboriginals native to those areas of the world. It is best to learn basic survival skills if one day you find yourself or family in these situations. Both can offer survival techniques that can may save your life, I am sure someone somewhere by now ahd utiized these skills to save their own lives. Also, taking the time to research other sources of survival will also be helpful. Bear Grylls is extremely dangerous, takes many foolish risks and wastes his energy doing outragous stunts.

There is no doubt both men are great at survival. But in my opinion, carrying camera crew does not mean much. Bear only has a knife, a water bottle, a bag (usually), parachute (sometimes) and a flint and some crews. Les, on the other hand, is a solo man but he has his own supplies. I have seen him taking a dirt bike for moving (Never seen Bear using anything but parachutes), and for Papua New Guinea episode, Les was near to a town where he met two men with "Machetes".

Lets say Bear was near to that highway. But he DID fell in the crevasse and came out didn't he? That is enough. The situation doesn't really matter. They are both TV shows, meaning both needs pretty face. I don't know if this is just for me.. But watching survivorman after watching Man vs Wild.. Survivorman would be better if Les moved around a bit more.. Though I like both shows, I am on Bear's side. Anyway, I would not risk my life just to shoot some vids. Even if I was Bear (who is married) I would take at least one person with me. Personally, I am a huge fan of Bear Grylls. There is no doubt both men are great at survival.

I think that right there says enough to distingish of who is the better survivorman.

Also, in his book, he explains that once you have learned about your area, you should prepare a survival kit to fit your needs specially for the area you will be in. This is very true, and obvious. And he does show us how to make things out of his surroundings, and create makeshift tools from scratch.

Les survives, he tryes to secure food, shelter, and protection and then waits to be rescued, whether this makes it a good show or not doesnt matter, this is how you survive. As for Les's suplys its often to show veiwers how to use random objects to help them survive rather than discarding things they might not know are usefull. Ever wonder why Bear isnt in the millitary anymore? My own theory is he got lost on a mission and the brits still havnt managed to find him due to his bizzare "survival techniques."

Case in point. You don't go cliff diving, rock climbing or climb 100ft trees if you don't have to. There's almost always a safe way around something like a cliff or waterfall. Please go youtube videos of this fool and look for behind the scenes footage. Ever hear the rumor that he filmed an entire episode in the woods behind his hotel? It's true. Les goes out by himself, safety crew is miles away and hes filming on his own. You've seen how far he travels, he does that double because he has to come back for his camera. He does the safe things and the right things you should do in the wild if you're stranded. Anyone that thinks this is wrong I HOPE you have to find out on your own.
