Ok, now a Les vs Bear poll....

Discussion in 'Community Forum' started by killinmammals, Jan 17, 2009.

  1. somebody help me out on this one...I have never done a poll.

    Both Bear and Les are dropped in a location from a helicopter with only a knife, mag. fire started, and the clothes on their backs. They are told they have to survive 2 weeks and make it 40 miles to a spot where they will be rescued at the end of this time. Who will survive...and why.

    1. Bear Grills
    2. Les Stroud

    I'm going with Bear, I think after a few days without food, Bear would kill a critter to eat, Les would get angry Bear killed the critter because it was a poor innocent animal that didn't deserve to die. Les will then cry all night. A few days later when they are starving Bear will get tired of Les crying about the animal and Bear will end up eating Les...or just throwing him off a cliff and going hungry until the end of the 2 weeks.:D

    I have no idea, both would probably make it. I think Bear and crew are more ratings oriented and do the craziest worst possible senario stuff and Stroud is a little more down to earth with his methods. Bear keeps 8 to 10 people with him so I don't know how he would do on his own while Stroud has his crew camp within a mile of him.
    As I said I think both would make it but if I had to choose who would make it first I guess I would have to go with Bear.

    Bear, IMO, is more physically fit than Les and would probably
    come out on top.

    I've never seen Bear kill anything that wasn't pretty obviously staged.

    I'd like to see that show, a survival showdown. If there is a time limit I think Bear would win. He's younger and more physically fit.

    In a real survival situation I'd go with Les. He's more level headed and doesn't take risks.

    I'm going with Les. He takes fewer risks, and I've seen him pack a rifle more than once.

    I think they are two different kind of shows myself..Bear shows a lot of dangerous stuff but in all honesty he served in the British SAS and was a survival instructor for the SAS..He broke his back in a jump because of a chute malfunction and still climbed Everest afterwords..2nd degree blackbelt and all that good stuff. .Hes probably about 10X more fit than Les is and has 10X the training..Either one could probably do fine anywhere you dropped them off..Despite Bears antics he clomes closer to being the real deal than Les does..He also does a lot of charity work..

    I'd say Bear would go somewhere and have another chopper pick him up and fly him to a hotel, from there he would spend the next two weeks. He would then catch another chopper and parachute into the location 40 mile away.

    OK GUYS--uh oh honey says i'm yelling when i type in caps but bear just woke me so i'm yelling at bear--my question is does bear bring food for the crew or do they have to eat what he eats--honey is letting me type cause he doesn't want me to go find bear and kill him for a rug for the hearth--bear is going to make it cause he has a crew that will carry him out to save their jobs and les will find something interesting to look at and get slowed down coming in a slow second--if you want to make it interesting put the sheena queen of the jungle in there and she'll show them how to get home fast to help ted skin the deer she kills for supper--good night and God bless our troops and God bless the USA--we may all need these survival tips for daily living if things don't change--love, mrs. honey(Rem's other half)

    LES! Bear is a fake. Bear has a camera crew and he stays in hotels at night during filming.
