    now I'm pissed, i saw the rockies one for the first time just now
    the quote at the beginning of the show " a camera crew will be following me, but are not allowed to interact with me in any way"
    well, i counted 3 times, running away from the thing in the woods at night with the camera lights
    very obvious life vest on under his sweatshirt

    and the pull back on the rappel down the last cliff where you can tell he has a climbing harness on and is not using his parachute lines like he is saying

    what a fake little bitch

    i respect the fact he climbed everest, but staging stupid **** like that on a show that is supposed to be real is garbage.

    What did you expect from a tv show like that? Everything is preplanned and staged ahead of time. Its tv, period.

    x2 I hate how he always says dumb **** like, "I'm really, really cold." Well, you just jumped in freezing ass water while "stranded" in the mountains.

    One episode he was in the rainforests and climbed the mongo tall trees, about 100ft. He climbed it, and the camera was above him at some points, then he had to climb down. I honestly dont see how he climbed up that, then climbed back down without some form of safety.

    Almost all of the times I admire the camera man more than the man he is filming.

    Poser!

    Yep, that guy's an idiot. Survivorman was way better. Who the hell climbs waterfalls and chit when you're alone in a survival situation? That's just idiotic uneccessary risk taking.

    that guy is not a survivor he's a showboating asshat.

    The one that got me was the Alaska one where he eats the salmon like he's some sort of wild animal. I mean really how hard would it be for a "survivalist" to build a fire and stuff a stick up the salmons ass:surepal: Oh and I almost forgot about the zebra, what a mega douche.........

    yeah, eat some rotten ass zebra while lions are watching you, brilliant!

    And the salmon thing, you can go without food a lot longer than without heat, especially the 20 min it ouwld have taken him to fire that fish up.

    Or the episode where he was running from an imaginary bear, expending massive amount of energy, sweating, jumping in the river to get wet so it couldn't smell him.

    Some basic survival teachings in the mountains are not to expend excess energy, try not to sweat, and never get soaking wet.

    He's teaching people how to get themselves killed.

    if i was in the wild, i would rather eat the salmon raw than cooking it, the more you cook fish, the more nutrients are lost. That and i like sushi:D

    You know it is TV, and he's trying to show people how to do things, why would he take an unreasonable risk? Whats the problem with him using a climbing harness? He climbed it like he didnt have it on so who cares.

    So climbing down that waterfall was stupid? What if its your only way out? You either stay there and die or try to get out and survive. :rolleyes:

    Either way like I said its a TV show, of course its not going to be 100% real. :rolleyes:

    Badmouth the show all you want but I'd like to see any of you do what he has done in his life. If you guys would actually do some research maybe you'd see.

    Climbing Mt Everest for his 1st time at the age of 23, seven months after breaking his back in a HALO jump, yeah he is a poser alright :rolleyes:
