Day of Mourning: Bear Grylls FIRED by Discovery Channel

Published by at 10:00 am under Oddly Enough

For the first time in his career, “Man vs. Wild” star Bear Grylls has failed to survive at the Discovery Channelbecause the network just fired him. A rep for Discovery tells The Hollywood Reporter, “Due to a continuing contractual dispute with Bear Grylls, Discovery has terminated all current productions with him.” Sources tell THR, the relationship came to a screeching halt after 37-year-old Grylls refused to participate in two mystery projects he was contracted for.

If I’m a network executive I’m on the phone with Bear Grylls right now. This guy is a superstar and nobody knows it! This is a freekin’ tragedy. Nobody brought the thunder better than Bear Grylls. Think about it – you put a guy out in nature alone and he entertains the f$ck out of you for an hour. There isn’t another star on the planet that could do something like that.. not even Jeremy Lin! Damn – I can’t wait until Bear signs on to a new network and tells Discovery to eat his d$ck.

    Bear Grylls is a fake. Les Stroud (Survivorman) actually did everything that was being filmed, all alone. Bear Grylls always had a film crew and was caught several times staying the night in hotels when he was “stranded”.
    Bear Grylls may have been the Eton educated, former SAS guy, but he also lied to all of the people that watched his show.

    Grylls is a hack. Stroud is so much better.

    KnektR is absolutely correct. Bear is as phony as a 3 dollar bill. Les Stroud did it all without a camera crew.
