Bear Grylls encourages youth to take up scouting at Scouts Australia

Skooter reporting 03/14/12

The US cable television network Discovery Channel fired the star of survival show Man vs Wild. Bear Grylls, 37, the British adventurer got kicked in the ass after a contract argument. Grylls is well-known for daredevil acts in remote locations, including notoriously drinking his own urine.

Discovery Channel has terminated all current productions with Bear Grylls because of a persisting contractual dispute. Grylls spokeswoman confirmed the split.

Grylls has made seven series of Man vs Wild, however critics have some reservation on the genuineness of some of the scenes in the series. In 2008, a program consultant exposed the adventurer was staying at a motel instead in the wild, forcing Grylls to apologize to the viewers.
