That wasn't really the point I was making...
You asked a question, I gave you the answer...
Most lunatics that I know of don't live in £30 million flats or buy their own private islands off the coast of Wales.

Bear is legit. but the stuff he does is not base line survival tactics. it's about an adrenaline rush and ratings more than anything. A lot of the stuff he does is the opposite of what you would really do if you really wanted to take a rational approach to survival. That would be never take risks that you can avoid without jeopardizing you survival.
He does know his survival stuff but good survival is usually boring and does not make good TV. They do stage stuff. there is no point in actually enduring survival situations when you or your crew do not have to. Besides he has paid his dues. Meaning he has done the stuff that they stage (like staying the night in an ice shelter) why should he do it again when he doesn't have to? I'd high tail it for a hotel too if given the choice. it does not mean i cannot construct, use and survive in various types of survival shelter.
