Yeah he finished filming episode 1 of season 2. I hope he can make it through the season without dying.

He will, of course.

thats what happens when you don't have a crew that can setup all your shots for you and make everything go perfect each time. if they both got stranded together les would eat bear and make his skin into a hot air balloon to fly out on

oh, and what kind of survival expert brings a lighter with them?




- oh yeah, he just happened to become a 'survivor expert' when his music career failed... um yeah Bear was in the special forces. i dont even see how this is an argument.

Bear Grylls:

# 1995 - Served for three years with 21st Special Air Service Regiment, a Territorial Army special forces unit of the British Army. During this time he broke his back in three places, while parachuting over southern Africa.
# 1997 - Became the youngest British person to summit Ama Dablam in the Himalayas, a peak once described by Sir Edmund Hillary as 'unclimbable'.
# 1998 - On May 26, became the youngest British person to summit Mount Everest and return alive. His book on this expedition, titled Facing Up, reached number nine in the best seller list.
# 2000 - He married Shara in January and later that year led the first team to circumnavigate the UK on personal watercraft, in aid of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) Lifeboats.
# 2003 - Led team across North Atlantic in a rigid inflatable boat (RIB). The book on this world record is titled: Facing the Frozen Ocean. It was shortlisted as 'Sports Book of the Year.' Along with Dame Ellen MacArthur, he was awarded an honorary commission in the Royal Navy in recognition of this achievement. Their first son Jesse was born in June.
# 2005 - Led the first team ever to attempt to paramotor over the remote jungle plateaux of the Angel Falls, Venezuela, in aid of the charity "Hope & Homes for Children"[1]. The team were attempting to reach the highest, most remote high tepuis, made famous by Conan Doyle's Lost World.

I don't think bear is necessarily better. If it comes to the point where you have to drink elephant dung, or bite in to a live salmon, you've failed in your survival techniques, those are acts of desperation.

Survivorman ate a motherfuckin' SNAKE in the swamp
But Man Vs Wild ate raw zebra meat in the African plain

I'm down to watch either show anytime, though I like Survivorman more

Yeah, we’ve been running through them. Started with the one on Netflix (6th season I think?), then went back and started from season one. Just finished 3 tonight. Unfortunately so far it seems we started with the best one. The others, while still ok, haven’t enjoyed as much.

I've binged Seasons 1,2 and 6 of Alone. Really like the show and its concept. The teams on season 3 doesnt appeal to me as much.

6 has been my favorite season so far...

SPOILER
_________

Really thought Winonya was going to win 6 and be the first woman winner...they have it a lot tougher than the men in regards to BMI and other health related issues

_______________

END SPOILER

It kinda surprises me how basically everyone on the show starves. none of these people would survive long term, and they're highly skilled hunters and survivalists.

It really shows how necessary it is for humans to cooperate and have division of labor, and how it requires some type of farming to provide us with enough calories to thrive. You can see too how an anatomically modern human would not be able to utilize their full cognitive capabilities without these luxuries.

^well I think on something like "Alone" they have to generally stay in one area. Most people would just continue to move if they ran out of food sources. In season 6 several of them complained about running out of stuff to catch in their area. Plus the guy who won said they drop you off with 100+lbs of camera gear, so its not easy to travel much. That guy for sure could have continued for a long time.

If you ever watch Naked and Afraid, it is the exact same on that, especially on the XL version. The XL version is usually the more successful of the people on the regular show and they barely squeeze by 40 days eating things like snails and the occasional fish or snake that they catch. Even that is people who have studied wilderness survival for years.

We started watching Season 6 of Alone last night.





Spoilers:








I totally thought Donny was going to dominate. The guy had a completely insulated bear den complete with a firepit only to cook a muskrat and give himself dysentary 12 hours later.
