I know the bear stuff is "staged" but at least it's still informative..most of the stuff he does is very impressive and my hats off to the man...and yeah,.. I think I may have a man crush on him.. A bro-Mance kinda thing..lol.. He does some cool shite... Not like that whining little fat fooking wu guy.. Wu the hell is he anyway.. He got the log axle/wheel deal from an episode of myth busters...

This show is eclipsed in stupidity only by the most obnoxious Discovery crap show of them all, "Fast & Loud".

I agree that its all staged. Gary falling into the crevace, then acting like he was in real danger? you're tied to a winch cable...

The show has potential but it seems annoying that the XTREMENESS has been artificially bumped up.

Also, please for the love of god stop doing a re-introduction of the hosts/premise of the show after EVERY COMMERCIAL BREAK

It's how they burn time when the show has no actual content that is worth a damn

Holy crap, please make this show stop. Watching the "mountain" episode now. The fake hype and suspense really ruin it. I think the premise is a good idea, but holy shit it's awful in it's current form. Although it's a like a car accident, I keep slowing down to look at it.

A man crush on bear? If I ever need to survive any situation I will just do the exact opposite of what he would do. That guy is just plain wreckless.

RE the wrangler from one car to far. It sounded like a diesel early in the show but then they had a failed spark plug? I could have sworn it was a diesel based on the sound... wonderful if they have more than one??

Looked at it for three mins. Wu must be a reject from the casting of dumb and dumber

There are certainly better ways to fix a plug wire besides a twig, abd they had more than enough kit to do it. I'm convinced Wu read a bunch of outback vehicle survival books just before coming on the show.
