Sort of like Man Vs. Wild. What a joke. If you are going to "act" like you are alone, maybe it would be best to actually BE alone.
1995 YJ Sahara
only useful episode i've watched is the one where they were bomb proving brick buildings. They had some good ideas like painting the back with adhesive etc.. that actually worked and after that the show went downhill real fast
he does do some crazy **** on that show though. I mean jumping into freezing water, eating all of the bugs etc. Even with the crew there he does do a lot and you can learn a bit form watching it.

They make it no secret on Man vs. Wild that Bear is not alone. He sometimes talks to the crew, he refers to the crew having problems, they have big wordy disclaimers that your DVR can pause on and you can read, and they basically say that he gets support when he needs it and he's basically showing techniques. He's not always spending the entire night in makeshift huts is what that means... they help him build rafts and the such, and they have other survival gear that I have never been under the illusion that they never use. The man still shows some hard core techniques and endures some severe stuff. The nature of his show means he can move more quickly and demonstrate more. The guy has squeezed elephant dung and the remains of what a camel has eaten to get water and has eaten some pretty nasty stuff. He shows a lot of techniques for getting through and around obstacles.
Both shows have let me know I'm a dead man in those conditions.
You guys ever seen when Mike Rowe was on QVC? There's a pretty good video of him on there trying to sell a Cat Sack...

I don't blame people for their mistakes, but I do expect they pay for them.

Mike Rowe is pretty cool, but some times he can make some pretty rude comments towards the people on the show. I forget which one it was, but I actually kind of thought he should have been decked for saying what he did.
