Man Vs. Wild is an Awesome TV Show. It is exciting and fast-paced. The Host is larger-than-life and hosts it well.
Man Vs. Wild makes Survival very entertaining and has useful tips as well.
Although it's copped alot of flack I believe that it is still the best survival show because it's not boring it's fun, exciting and entertaining.
Bear Grylls is an Adventurer who has achieved alot; Been in British Special Forces, Climbed to the Summit of Everest and Crossed the arctic in a Dinghy.
He is the right choice to host this show, and is excellent at doing it.
Overall, Man Vs. Wild is a Great show and will hopefully run for many seasons to come.
