I'd go for good old Les "Bushtucker Man" Hiddens...no contest...
He has survived Betty's hotpot, Roy's Rolls and Deidre's muff. Do I need to say more?Blue/GreenJob said:
That's why I gave more options (Poll) and a bit of an arena for banter and discussion, plus the fact that there's FAR more in the way of TV survivalists out there than just Mears and Grylls......jack-daniels said:There was a bit of a debate about this previously. Not sure who won though!
Of course they stay in hotels. You have to go and charge the camera batteries somewhere for a start but why should the crew have to stay overnight in a mossy infested pit when they can have aircon an minibars?Command_doh said:Les Stroud.
It most certainly is NOT Bear 'fake' Grylls. Or the Worlds' most boring man - Ray 'hotels, not wilderness' Mears.
That is more a comment on his good luck and first aid skills than any talent for real survival in the ulu. I think we are talking about bushcraft survival.bigeye said:As it happens Ray is for real. His crew were shooting in Colorado out of a helicopter when the aircraft suffered a major failure - they hit the deck hard and unfortunately the camera man had been shooting with his feet on the skids.
He suffered 2 compound fractures of the femur plus a ruptured artery .Ray was totally calm - he tied knots in the femoral artery and dealt with all the less serious injuries the rest o the crew suffered. He definitely saved the cameraman's life.
