Discovery Channel Fired Man vs Wild Bear Grylls

by irtiza104 on March 31, 2012

Bear Grylls has been the presenter of the Disovery Channel program Man vs Wild. This show has been on air since 2006 and he got fired during the Season 7 of Man vs Wild.

Sources suggest that the real life hero Bear Grylls for fired due to some contractual dispute. As a result all current productions of this very popular series have been cancelled. This news was very shocking to me as I am a huge Man vs Wild fan. But Bear assures that he will be bringing more shows like Man vs Wild again and suggested his loyal fans to not be dishearted.

The details of the dispute is not very clear.

The very popular outdoor survival program, Man vs Wild with Bear Grylls has successfully completed its 7th season. The season had started on July 18, 2011 and the season finale was on November 29, 2011. This season of Man vs Wild had 5 episodes. The episode list of Man vs Wild Season 7 is provided below:

  • Episode 1: South Island, New Zealand
  • Episode 2: Iceland
  • Episode 3: Southern Utah
  • Episode 4: New Zealand
  • Episode 5: Working the Wild

In the last episode of this Man vs Wild Season, Bear Grylls actually shows the effort and the hardship of the crew and the cameramen he works with. So this is actually a “Making of Man vs Wild” episode and it amazed me a lot. Often we just see Bear doing a lot of hard things, but we forget about the cameramen following him…

Bear Grylls Survival Series Ultimate Kit Review

by irtiza104 on October 26, 2011

If you are in a danger and you need to survive then I think the most important survival tool you would look for is “Gerber 31-000701 Bear Grylls Survival Series Ultimate kit” by Gerber Legendary Blades. Whether you are adventurous or not, you may have found yourself in a difficult environment and for these adverse situations, this kit is easy to carry and would help you to survive in those environments. This kit is a part of the Gerber Bear Grylls Series of gear.

Gerber 31-000701 Bear Grylls Survival Series Ultimate Kit:

The Ultimate kit consists of various necessary tools that everyone should have in an adventure.

Things that you would find in the Ultimate Kit box:

  • Nylon Pouch
  • Multi-Tool
  • Miniature Light
  • Hand Saw
  • Signaling Mirror
  • Survival Blanket
  • Fire Starter
  • Waterproof Matches
  • Snare Wire
  • Emergency Cord
  • Cotton Ball Fire Tinder
  • Waxed Thread
  • Sewing Kit
  • Fishing Kit
  • Pocket Survival Guide
  • Rescue Instructions

What I Loved about the Survival Tool:

1) 15 pieces kit along with Pocket Survival Guide and Rescue Instructions will always keep you prepared to fight against all hostile environments that the nature might offer at you in your travels.

2) Gerber’s miniature multi-tools for a range of applications

3) Reasonable price, item dimensions are better to carry offering less weight.

4) Survival guide and SOS instructions come handy for land to air rescue.

5) Ideal kit for outdoor adventures and travels.

What I didn’t Like about the Tool:

1) One of the most necessary things that are missing from the box is a compass. If you are lost and you need to redirect to your destination then you must have a compass with you all the time while you travel or adventure. However, the survival instructions within this kit contains instructions about how you can make out directions with the help of natural resources.

2) The snare cord would break under little pressure.

If you would like to have my suggestion then I would say YES! You should buy this ultimate kit by Bear Grylls. Because, things that the kit failed to provide is much less than it offers to survive. Each item of the kit is effective and you would gratify yourself for the best purchase you were looking to have to benefit you in hostile environments. So, be prepared for harder situations when looking for an adventure and never forget to have the best ever survival tool bag offered by Bear Grylls “Gerber 31-000701 Bear Grylls Survival Series Ultimate Kit” with you!
