      You may not, but a number of people do. And there are a number of videos out there that make their point...my favorite being one from Hawaii. I also think the whole Everest adventure issue casts a lot of doubt on his veracity. On the other hand, Les gets so depressing to watch because he always seems on the edge of keeping things together. They are both entertaining.

      I would not classify Bear Grylls as a fraud. Sleeping one night in

      a motel, likely at the urging of his productions staff, doesn to

      take away from the many adventurous and skilled outdoor acts he has

      undertaken on his show. I think he deserves some credit just for

      eating the stuff he eats.



      I like Les too. I enjoy watching both shows. They are still TV

      though so I don't expect them to be 100% REAL.

      definitely prefer the letter.

        I meant to say I agree with Tod and like the way Aris stated: "I think
        a show that purports to give useful survival tips, but fails in the
        quest for sensationalism is a dangerous program."

        It doesn't take much to entertain me but I can't watch this show.
