In Bear Gryll’s show “Man Vs. Wild.” Bear is constantly dropping himself into life and death scenarios in order to show you how to survive in the harshest environments. He strands himself in popular wilderness destinations where tourists often find themselves lost or in danger and he tells the number of people who died in previous years in the same predicament he is about to enter. In every episode he will do something that will make you shutter. (Like, scraping maggots from a rotten carcass and eating them) But his actions are necessary if he is to survive the experience. The first thing: realize the severity of the situation and how to survive.
