‘Man vs. Wild’ Returns in November
Looks like that little snafu with Man vs. Wild’s Bear Grylls had little fallout. If you’ve never seen the show on the Discovery channel, Grylls, a survivor expert, challenges various “wild” situations with only his skill to help him survive. Well, that and a helpful crew, it seems. He was found out a few months back when it was discovered that he was getting a little help on the survival series and that the scenarios he presented on the show were somewhat different in reality. Some reports said he stayed overnight in a motel when he was supposed to be braving the wild; another report said the folks on the show constructed a raft for him to use. Discovery continued to air the series, but edited it and offered a disclaimer that some of the show’s elements were staged. And now, he’s back for a second season of the reality series on November 9th at 9:00 p.m. He’ll also appear on a special called Bear’s Mission Everest at 10:00 p.m., where he’ll (attempt to) fly a paraglider in the Himalayas. In the upcoming season, he’ll visit the Sahara Desert, Panama and Patagonia. Discovery Channel president Jane Root commented, “We continue to seek out new exciting and daring adventures for Bear, and he continues to do what he does best. From an expedition documentary to hands-on demonstrations of life-saving tips for viewers, Bear Grylls brings out the adventurer in all of us.” This go-around, there will be no question about when the crew helps out… so Grylls should avoid any further media and fan criticism. See? He is a survival expert.
