Re: the recent press accusations of motels and stagings in the show that have been doing the rounds, all I can say is they don't always tell the full story, but that’s life and part of being in the public eye I guess.
That's a non-denial denial if I've ever heard one.
Anyway, regardless of what they actually do or do-not-do while filming, Man vs. Wild remains one of my favorite television shows. After all, I'm watching it for entertainment purposes, not for learning how to survive in the wild. If I wanted that, I would grow a beard, move to Montana, and befriend a grizzly bear named Ted, and we'd frolic in the mountain valleys and drink too much boxed wine on our cross country road trips and use fluffy bunnies as toilet paper. You know, just like in college.
