Bear Grylls has a show on the Discovery Channel called "Man VS Wild" where he battles the elements, quickly builds shelter and eats live animals. I mean this bitch makes it look like he can build a Four Seasons out of 3 twigs during a snowstorm.
Well, sources say that Bear is a big fraud. They say that producers make it look like he's braving it, but when the cameras are turned off Bear checks himself into a luxury hotel.
Mark Weinhart was hired as a consultant to the show and said that it's mostly fake. He said that in an episode where Bear is supposed to be camping in the mountains and biting the heads off of snakes, he was actually spending nights in a hotel complete with jacuzzi and internet access. In another episode where Bear was supposed to be stranded on a deserted island, he was actually staying in a hotel in Hawaii. HA!
The Discovery Channel has launched their own investigation to find out the truth! They said, "Discovery Communications has learned that isolated elements of the 'Man vs. Wild' show in some episodes were not natural to the environment, and that for health and safety concerns the crew and host received some survival assistance while in the field," a spokeswoman for the network said. Moving forward the program will be 100 percent transparent and all elements of the filming will be explained up-front to our viewers. In addition, shows that are to be repeated will be edited appropriately."
Hmmm…..this is upsetting, however he's still a hot piece!
