I have this theory that Bear Grylls would be the most annoying person in the world to go on a casual camping trip with. Sure, he's about badass as they come, but something tells me his insane survivalist tactics would be a major buzz kill in a non-emergency situation. Think about it: While you're taking your good old time setting up that sweet, comfortable tent you got at REI, he has to go up-stage you by building a cabin out of oak tree twigs. Rather than starting a campfire with a Bic lighter or a free pack matches, he insists on rubbing sticks for two hours. You get the point. Here's a video from a recent episode of "Man vs. Wild" in which he finds a dead seal on the rocky Scottish coast, filets the skin off the carcass, and wears it as a wetsuit to swim across a frigid channel. Suck it, Gore-Tex. Watch the gorey video after the jump.
