If these 2 found themselves in a 100% proper survival situation, who would win ? I know who my money is on.£50 on Mears please.
Mears does have the "survival physique" which when all things are considered is what will carry you through.

Neither are a patch on Les Hiddins or 'our Lofty'.

My money is on bear, I have seen him eat some nasty things. Mears seems to spend all his time making Canoes and stuff, probably expends more calories than the value, but then he does look a bit chunky. Maybe he stores up before he films the edpisodes

If you did find yourself in trouble and having to survive, it'd be a whole lot more "luxurious" with Ray Mears there with you making the shelter and doing the cooking - it'd only be Bear if you didn't care what you ate!

Mears would build a 5 star hotel out of some twigs and pocket fluff and be charging Bear £300 per night to stay there until the rescue party turns up.
Plus Mears knows where the pie tree grows.

Les Hiddins seconded, walks around in the Ozzie bush with a hoofin' girt Mess Webley in case the 'natives get restless' gathering 'Bush Tucker' and spinning yarns about Colonial explorers getting lost and ending up in the Aboriginal Hot Pot.
Ex OZ Army Major created the Australian Armies bush survival course. NAILS.
