Since catching up on Bones (and now eagerly awaiting Wednesday night) I needed a new show to procrastinate with on demand. So I downloaded Man vs. Wild and Survivor man, not remembering which one was the coolest. Man vs. Wild. Bear Grylls is completely insane and that makes good ‘reality’ TV.
For those unfamiliar with the Discovery Channel show this guy gets dropped out of a helicopter over some inhospitable and/or dangerous habitat with a knife, a water bottle and maybe a flint. Oh and clothes, no he isn’t naked (all the time). Then the show is over when he finds his way to help. Places I have gone with him so far: Costa rican rainforest, Moab Desert, French Alps (where he ate maggots and a live fish).
Three foods Mr. Grylls would take on a deserted island:
Three foods I would take:
1) chocolate (definite agreement here, but it has to be the milky kind)
2) my dad’s chili (we obviously aren’t concerned with how this will actually stay fresh)
3) clementine oranges
I’m assuming there will be pineapple and coconut there just hanging out so those don’t need to be taken (not that coconut would be).
