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.

I'm not really surprised by this seeing as they have that other survival show now.

He lost a lot of respect after the audience learned he wasn't really surviving out in the wild, but actually staying in a hotel room. Sounds like he got too big for his britches.

Well....I will stop watching until he comes back! He makes the show and is a big part of why I watch it in the first place! Cheers.

Who cares? Les Stroud (Survivorman) actually went out in the wild completely on his own for a week for each of his shows. Bear films for a few hours with a crew helping him and then goes to a nice hotel each night.

I don't care if he had people helping him or not. The guy is no joke just check out his bio. I'm jealous of his wife. Gawddamn he's hot!

More than likely the producers wanted to amp up the show with scenarios that were too dangerous or in no direct relation to actual survival to get a better time share. In my opinion, Grylls earns his money. Whether you like the show or not will take nothing away from his skills.

C'mon TMZ smarten up. He wasn't fired. They just couldn't reach an agreement so Discovery ended the negotiations. Cancelled would've been a better word.

P.S. Maybe now he could be introduced to Kartrashian. I heard she likes pee too.
