In the third-season opener of Man v. Wild, Bear is dropped into Baja, Mexico, where he must survive the challenges of the desert, including being blinded by bee stings and facing down a deadly diamondback rattlesnake.
Bear Gryll is a British adventurer who faces survival situations. I by no means think Bear is as cool as Les Stroud the Survivorman. There is no comparison, Stroud wins hands down.
However, Bear's 'Man versus Wild' is an entertaining show. According to TVGuide.com in tonight's episode, Bear is blinded by bee stings. I guess we will have to tune in to see if he is allergic or not…
Tune in tonight, August 6, 2008, at 10:00 p.m. on the Discovery Channel and see if Bear survives the Mexico desert. You can find out more about Man v. Wild at www.discoverychannel.com.
