Funny Foto Friday: Bear Grylls - Beer or Piss?

There is a “reality” show in the United States (and maybe abroad?) called “Man vs Wild” that features a lovely chap named “Bear Grylls”. Seriously. That is his name. I’ve been told that he is pretty easy on the eyes by both female AND male friends. I gotta think that even a drunk hobo could get chicks with a name like Bear Grylls. It just sounds manly. But I digress…..

To say that Bear has a flair for the dramatic is a bit of an understatement. He is essentially the Marcia Brady of reality TV. Always clamoring for attention by doing outlandish things like sleeping with the high school football team. The show plunks him down in all sorts of random deserted places (desert, rain forest, arctic tundra, etc) and he proceeds to fight his way back to civilization – sort of (a bit of controversy about how "real" it actually is).

Because of which, he has gained a bit of a reputation for, shall we say, hydrating in strange ways. Happy Friday!

Shouldn't it be a trunk load of Milwaukee's Best or Nattie Light? ;)

One of my favorite internet memes.

HA! I think my main squeeze has a secret man crush on ole Bear, but as you said he's a manly stud...

Madison said...

I love that show! Bear drinking his own pee, eating sheep's eyeball and using said sheep's skin as a knap sack...that's just inventive, gross but inventive. I died when I saw him drink his own pee. Livid!

He's hot for sure, but he'd be brushing his teeth before I kissed him. Probably some industrial strength mouthwash, too.

My favorite caption: can walk around it, but must think of audience. :)

he is very hot!! I heard that he is a fraud and has his camera crew carry granola bars and warmer clothes around for him. Not sure if it's true, though.

My husband and older kids love this show, and all the ones like it. I think he is a drama queen. :)

Brian said...

LOL @ at all these 5K races that offer MGD 64 or Bud Select 55 at the end.

"Headin' to the beer tent, Bear?"

"Nope, I brought my own."

I may have to steal that last picture to email to all of my friends with no taste buds! I've never been a huge fan of the show, it sounds great in theory, but in practice it comes over horribly.

I can't stand Bear, but the episode with Will Ferrell is really funny. I think Bear hated him.

Jesse and I love to talk like Bear. Everytime we see a "glacier" or take some "vitamins" you better believe we pull out the bear!

Cynthia O'H said...

He's definitely worth the view. We need the skinny-dipping scene too.

Char said...

It's shown abroad - at least in Australia. I put him in the same category as the Crocodile Hunter - and we all know what happened to him.

What's Miller Lite?

Erik said...

Dude, your posts make me laugh every time! Those "beers"? I agree...they probably taste like piss (not that I've ever had to drink pee or the stuff in the van...not sure which I'd admit to first).

XLMIC said...

Never heard of him or the show but now I want to see it…lol. I have a feeling it won't be as funny as this post!

Birdie said...

Bahaha. The ONLY time I've seen his show was when I was in labor with my first son. There was a Bear marathon on the TV in my room and my husband and midwife were watching and commenting on his piss drinking etc. while I was doing something REALLY amazing. Jerks.

Steve said...

I love the fully stocked van... Bear Grylls is a classic character.

BAHAAHAA! My 10 year old son LOVES this show and I enjoyed looking at Bear for a couple of episodes (it would help if he took his shirt off more...), but then I just started cracking wise and I think my boy has given up trying to watch it through me cracking myself up.
