I made fun of “Man vs. Wild” for resorting to a behind-the-scenes look at the show last night instead of dropping Bear into a live volcano or somesuch, but I’ll give credit where it’s due: this compilation of Bear eating disgusting raw animal parts (video below) is exactly the kind of short clip I delight in watching. No commercials, no excess story line — just two minutes of Bear chomping down on frogs, snakes, lizards, goat testicles, various arthropods, and internal organs I happily can’t identify. And this isn’t even everything he’s eaten — for example, this doesn’t include the time he stabbed a reindeer in the head, cut its throat, drank blood from its neck and took a bite out of its heart. Holy crap that was metal.
My only complaint is that the show keeps insisting that Grylls is teaching us how to survive in the wild. Look, Discovery, I’m not learning a damn thing by watching this show. I’m just here for the guano enemas!
