    Personally, I like Bear more because he kills things and eats them! :D

    I think we should settle this by dropping them both in the middle of nowhere with nothing but a toothpick.

    I think Ray's better cause "He wears short shorts".

    yeah, but that's also what disturbs me about him the most o0

    tbh Ray Mears is somewhat more low-key than Bear Grylls. Not that I do not enjoy the thrill of Bear doing something cool, but things like pictures of Ray sitting in the woods by a fire making a paddle just do it for me ;)

    Both of them are a couple of pansies.

    Everyone knows the ultimate survival expert is Lofty Wiseman

    He taught the SAS their survival skills and is an ex SAS man himself.

    Ray and Bear would probably wet themselves at the first sign of real trouble...

    Both are legends.

    It has to be Ray though who has alot more experience and a wealth of knowledge of all local survival customs.

    Although Bear would be more willing and able to crazy things in order to survive.

    I'd say B.S. Christiansen

    I though Bear was ex SAS.

    The real answer is Chris Ryan he proved that with his TV show.

    Those two shitheads have nothing on B.S. Christiansen! I've read all his books and he would be able to survive underwater if you just gave him some rope and his backpack!

    (I'll always be here.. Right behind you Mr. Kim Diesel!)

    Yea.. He even had a rifle! He could of have taken out Signe Svendsen(or whatever she is called) too.. What a fucking pussy ;(

    cheers Flanderson - although I dont agree with you two. Bubber was hardcore in Bubbers Badekar.

    Ray any time, anyone who can survive with just a knife wins. He doenst just survive, he lives.

    the lengths he goes to make a shelter is fantastic, he even makes ornaments for the shelter (cantstick holders etc) And everything he ever eats is "fantastic" even if its a bit of tree bark

    A nutcase sitting in a bathtub with a horned helmet talking bullshit to kids? B.S. should have taken him out in the wilderness tbh :eek:

    you can't really compare these 2 ppl. Bear is all about getting the hell out of there by all means possible and as fast as possible while Ray is more into surviving with style :)

    NOTHING Bear do have style, or even some thought put behind it.. even the cut and pasted clips of his "death defying stunts" shows of fake :(

    but any way. Ray Mears ftw.

    i don't think i have ever actually SEEN him eat anything. let alone swallow it apart from raw fishes and other such less disgusting things.

    He is ex-SAS actually, reason he is no longer in is because he fell in a parachuting accident and shattered 3 vertebrae, 2 years after that he became the youngest Briton to climb Everest (and return alive :p) I lost alot of respect for him though when I read he had a kid called Marmaduke.
