Ok - here it is: IT'S OFFICIAL!!!!!!!! yep - you guessed it - as of a couple of days ago I finally officially signed with the networks .... and in less than two weeks I head out to: FILM BRAND NEW SURVIVORMAN SHOWS!!!!!! heres the technical info: I continue my long standing relationship with Discovery Channel US and The Science Channel US to bring you 8 brand new episodes of Survivorman. In Canada I am venturing into an exciting new relationship with Blue Ant Media's Travel and Escape channel an I am really looking forward to a network full of passionate and exciting and talented people geared to making great documentary TV! Around the rest of the world I am hopeful that my already existing partners will continue to jump on board so that my friends in places like Europe, Australia, South America, Asia and further beyond can continue to enjoy the exploits of the Survivorman series. Now heres some very cool info - for two of the episodes I will definitely be taking my 16 year old son Logan out with me!! Now what i can tell you is that he is better at playing Call of Duty than he is at getting a fire going so it is going to make for some intense times when his rude awakening occurs after two days without food in the middle of the woods! As for locations - only one has actually been confirmed at this point and I know that Web Girl wants to get another contest going so that you can guess the locations for Survivorman swag. As for the format of the shows - I will continue with the core essence of what it takes to make a Survivorman show - ten days completely alone in some of the most beautiful yet harsh and remote places on the planet. I can only hope that you all will continue to take these journeys with me. I think you can expect them to make it to air by the end of this year!! Well, nothing left to do now but get out there!!!!......L
Pretty awesome love Les Stroud.
I love the shows, and oddly my kids love them too. Its like one of the only few shows they will watch with me.
Not to completely derail the Survivorman thread, but if you're into the survival shows, check out Naked Castaway on discovery. 3 episodes spanning 60 days of a guy getting dropped on a tropical island - with absolutely nothing. All 3 will be on again on Sunday, well worth a watch to see a guy go from total caveman shit to self sufficiency in the span of 2 months.
I fucking love survival shows. Always have one playing from Netflix if i need some background noise. And ya, Les Stroud is the best among them.
You guys might check out Ray Mears' stuff too if you're into survival shows. A his stuff varies depending on the show but he does a lot of survival/bushcraft/story/history/food/animal stuff. It can be pretty slow if you're used to Bear Grylls speed but a lot more educational.
You can get all 3 episodes under the shows alternate name, 'Naked And Marooned With Ed Stafford'.
its been replaying all night tonight. the naked castaway show. its a good show, dude looked like he was starting to lose his shit at the end. so was he really alone on the island or did that goat get a little help getting its head trapped?
My rival is coming back on the air? Better drink my own piss.
And you're right, he should probably have just died out there. That would have made for much better TV.
This dude walked the length of the Amazon river. Bear Grylls sleeps in a fucking hotel. Have some perspective.

Every single guy you see doing this kind of shit has a safety crew not far away from them, and every single one of them (Stroud included) have called upon said safety crew multiple times in the course of their job. They're out there for a reason, and it's not to fucking die making a stupid TV show.
Yeah, you're right, having a medic come out to straighten out your fucked up stomach on day 45 completely ruined the whole thing.
You've convinced me.
you dont want to see the true mental collapse of someone completely alone either. if you do, just pop in Grizzly Man and watch that crazy mofo start treating 10 foot tall killer bears like they are his buddies.
Not to be a dick but Treadwell was simply a retard who spent the summer months camping alone(somtimes not) with bears. He didn't have the stress of an actual survival situation to deal with. I can't imagine loosing your shit in 2 months unless you're a total needy limpdick person. Alexander Selkirk did that shit for like four years like a boss.
