Bear Grylls

FIRED By Discovery Channel

3/13/2012 10:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0313_bear_grylls_tmz_BN
For the first time in his career, "Man vs. Wild" star Bear Grylls has failed to survive ... at the Discovery Channel -- because the network just fired him.

A rep for Discovery tells The Hollywood Reporter, "Due to a continuing contractual dispute with Bear Grylls, Discovery has terminated all current productions with him."

Sources tell THR, the relationship came to a screeching halt after 37-year-old Grylls refused to participate in two mystery projects he was contracted for.

Grylls originally partnered with Discovery in 2006 when "Man vs. Wild" premiered on the network. So far, no word on Grylls' next move ... though it will probably somehow involve him drinking his own urine.

He'll move over to another cable channel and won't miss a beat.

Good he was the biggest phony on TV, and with Kim Kartrashian on 24 hours a day, that's saying a lot.

Someone's let "fame" go to their head. I'm sure it won't hinder his finding other projects though.

Les Stroud(Survivorman) > Bear Grylls.
.
Stroud goes out alone with cameras and tells you how to survive safely and what to look for, how to get this, how to get that.
.
Bear goes out with 6 or 7 people, one of them being a survival expert and ex military guy(kind of like a second Bear Grylls) and a film crew. Not to mention he uses ropes and safety gear that is edited out. Bear does things that no survivor should ever do. Jump off a cliff into a stream, scale trees and jump to another, climb dangerous cliffs etc etc. All things a survivor on their own should NEVER do. He's a freaking idiot.
.
Oh btw Discovery Channel blows now..nothing but terrible reality shows, just like history channel. Thankfully I have Science, Nat Geo and H2.

Good, glad that freak won't be on Discovery anymore. I got tired of turning to the channel wanting to watch a REAL show, and seeing this freak eating the heads of live critters, or cutting them open LIVE and then eating them. He is a phony and a freak! GOOD MOVE, Discovery....we fans agree with the firing!

The networks will always have the upper hand and could easily call his bluff.

Such harsh comments! However, y'all DO have a point- Les Stroud is a REAL survivorman. He has no crew with him. They BOTH DO show us some real survivor skills. Hope nobody has to use them someday!
