I am outraged

Outraged I say.

The Discovery Channel hit upon a winning formula when it paid Canadian Les Stroud to tape himself surviving in the wilderness - alone - for seven days for the Science Channel show "Survivorman."

"Survivorman" is a cult classic, but hasn't been renewed for a second season.

But what is Discovery giving us Nov. 10? "Man vs. Wild" , in which the ridiculously named Bear Grylls, a former British special forces type, goes into the wilderness and survives for a week.

Only, unlike Les, "Bear" brings a camera crew and, in the clip they have on the Discovery Web site, pees on himself. Seriously.

So, other than noting that Bear is a giant doofus and a wuss, can you spot any other differences between super-stud Stroud and giant faker Bear?

[I'll put pix here if Blogger can ever keep its site operating for longer than three minutes at a time]

Yep, Les is a pasty, bald, naked Canadian, whereas Bear is a rugged, square-jawed Continental. It's all about the looks, dontchaknow.

Also, check out this forum for some hilarious Bear bashing for his earlier "Ultimate Survival" show. Hee.
