And, as a special one hour companion piece to the new season, Bear is chasing another dangerous feat: BEAR’S MISSION EVEREST which premieres Friday, Nov. 9th at 10PM/ET.

Exclusively for readers of Dark Roasted Blend Discovery Channel presents all of Bear’s craziest stunts from last season. We can’t imagine he isn’t going to try and outdo himself for his second season!

"Just Eat It!"


"Drinking Pee"

Bear Grylls is a seasoned adventurer who served with the Special Air Service, a special forces unit of the British army, where he was trained as a survival expert. He has channeled his daring spirit into feats such as the highest-ever dinner party at a table suspended below a hot air balloon at 24,500 feet, and the first unassisted crossing of the frozen North Atlantic Ocean in an open rigid inflatable boat.

In 1998 at age 23, Bear became the youngest British climber to ever complete a summit and descent of Mount Everest. This spring, Bear returned to the Himalayas to chase a new dream – flying a powered paraglider higher than Everest.

BEAR’S MISSION EVEREST, which premieres Friday, November 9, at 10 PM (ET/PT), follows the team during their meticulous preparations, recording their personal thoughts about motivation, hopes and fears that arise just before and during the flight – and the drama of the flight itself.

"Snow Tunnel"

The second season of MAN VS. WILD, beginning first on Friday, November 9, at 9 PM (ET/PT), focuses on three geographic area visited by Bear. Each region will be the subject of each two consecutive weeks. From the barren deserts of the Sahara (November 9 and 16), to the mist-filled jungles of Panama (November 23 and 30) and the isolated plains and glaciers of Patagonia (December 7 and 14), each epic program illustrates the variety of landscapes and presents a wide range of possible survival challenges for Bear.

Followed by a camera crew, Bear tackles these different scenarios, using his training and adventurous spirit for everything from climbing out of crevasses and scaling waterfalls, to scavenging and eating raw insects, fish and goats' testicles. Viewers will venture deeper into these forbidden landscapes alongside Bear as he encounters dangerous situations and meets nomadic tribesmen while filming.

"Walking on Water"

"European Alps Highlights"

"We continue to seek out new exciting and daring adventures for Bear, and he continues to do what he does best – as exemplified in these two different types of shows," said Discovery Channel President and General Manager Jane Root.

"From an expedition documentary to hands-on demonstrations of life-saving tips for viewers, Bear Grylls brings out the adventurer in all of us."

Well... this whole show is pathetic. See why:

This one is funny:

Every survival training I have seen says "Drinking your own urine will only make you thirstier" It's too salty.

Anonymous Anonymous said...

Yes, maybe some shows are fake or untrue, but the show itself is prepared bloody good!

i also have caught a couple episodes of this show and I was not impressed. It is a rip-off of a great Canadian show

Survivorman is genuinely great, it feels and IS all real. Plus survival advices he gives are in fact quite clever and, uhm, helpful. Bear's are dumb, aimed to sound terrifying/disgusting, and sometimes even dangerous to your health (like the one about drinking pee).

Survivorman is much better ... he's got a safety crew somewhere but has to hump all his own camera gear on top of making it through.

Bear Grills would rip off survivor man's testicals, eat them raw and wash them down with his own pee.

Anonymous Anonymous said...

Bear, the Eaton boy and son of the late Conservative parliament member has people to do the washing for him.

I never did much like that show, with Bear Grills. I never thought it was fully truthful. So glad I never got into watching it. lol
