Personally I prefer Man V Food on Dave channel.

I'd rather wrestle a cuddly Ray Mears than a man who can eat 11lbs of food in one sitting.

Incidentally, that's not too removed from Ray Mears - the fat cunt.

Bush Tucker Man from the dawn of satellite tv in the UK. Les is a true legend (for an Army pilot).
Into the Void for proper 'it's him or me' decision-making. Boardman and Tasker ended up doing their own climbing in the film as the actors weren't up to it.

The bush tucker man is the daddy of survivalists. A proper old school self taught chap who went the extra mile to investigate bush food safety for the Australian Armed Forces.

Les Hiddins - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

If it wasn't for his dreadful fashion sense I could really fall for him.

George boots and shorts - whatever next!!

what you all think of bear grylls programme in the french foreign legion?? think that's the prog that started his tv career
Hubby watches the programmes and I pretend I'm listening to survival tips just in case i parachute into the Amazon jungle on my lonesome. In fact (but don't let on) i couldn't tell you what tips he goes on about as I am too busy ogling. I met him in Windsor and just about managed to stop drooling.

Oops. Touching the Void, of course. And 'me' of course. I have had that conversation a few times with a good climbing buddy over a few refreshing jars in the Clachaig Inn. He reassures me that it would be 'him', though. The selfish twat.

To keep the Grylls adulation going I can tell you he's also got a large wanger.

Hasn't improved his intelligence or made him a decent chap but, hey if he looks nice....
