Dumbest thing

At the risk of turning my little corner of cyber space into a negative blog about Bear Grylls...

I was at the gym just now and saw a preview for his next episode. Imagine Bear up on a seaside cliff, hollering "I see a seal carcass down there." He goes down, and cuts into the seal. Next shot is him trying on a "farmer john" wetsuit style top he made from the seal skin. There really is nothing positive I can say about that. Not classy, not practical, ...just simply stupid.

Rant off.

Agreed. The show has great potential, however, I really believe that the network encourages this behavior for ratings.

Yes. I think that it isn't really Bear Gryll's fault, I have a hard time thinking that a former special ops soldier would think that making a wet suit out of a dead seal would be a priority in a "survival" situation.... pure TV.
