What do you think is the best survival show on TV, "Man vs. Wild" or "Survivorman"? I think "Survivorman" is better because Les Stroud does everything on the show by himself, surviving on what little gear he has available and from what he can scrounge from his environment. He also does his own camera work. Bear Grylls on "Man vs. Wild" has a whole team to help him and he shows off too much. He also gets in situations most of us wouldn't be in and does some stupid things like eating fish raw from a river he refers to as a "parasite laden river".
