Bear Grylls Injured In Antarctica

By Wyatt Earp | December 8, 2008

You just knew this was coming. Okay, let me guess. He was injured in one of the following ways:

1. He impaled himself on a stalagmite.

2. He drank a bad batch of his own urine.

3. The rattlesnake he ate “didn’t agree with him.”

Adventurer and TV show host Bear Grylls injured his shoulder in Antarctica during an expedition to raise money for an international charity, the Discovery Channel said Sunday.

Grylls was injured Friday night after falling during the expedition, which was not for the Discovery Channel, according to the network’s statement. The statement said that Grylls is returning to the UK to receive medical attention.

“Once he sees a doctor, we will have a better sense of the level of seriousness of his shoulder injury and the recovery time needed to get him back to his full physical activity,” according to the statement.

Grylls, 34, is the host of Discovery’s “Man vs. Wild” in which he demonstrates extreme measures — including eating snakes and insects — used to survive in harsh environmental conditions. (H/TCNN)

I friggin’ love “Man vs. Wild,” and I hope this doesn’t affect the taping of upcoming episodes. Bear is a crazy SOB, and it’s always entertaining to watch him do stupid things. I love “Survivorman,” too, but Les Stroud is a little more sane than Bear.

    I heard that he hurt himself while stepping out of the shower in the nice, cozy hotel he sleeps in most nights.

    The way I heard it, he got frostbite on his naughty bits while streaking. I also heard that his name isn’t “Bear,” it’s “Bare.”

    Randal – Pedicure injury. Heard it here first.

    John D – Frostbitten genitalia. Ouch!

    Sully – He’ll get hurt from a harmonica burn.

    Captain – But he’s such a nerd!

    Real reason for Bear’s injury? He got into a tussle with a yeti over a seal corpse.

    Even though Les is a bit of a hippy dippy, you’ll survive longer if you follow his advice.

    Bear is teaching viewers to jump into a pool of water from 50 feet and leading people to believe he doesn’t already know it’s safe. The cameraman is a better survivor.

    Anyone here could do what Bear does with a tent full of beer and steaks just off camera.
