YMMV / Man vs. Wild

  • Crazy Awesome: Bear. Grylls.
  • Memetic Mutation - Bear's Extreme Omnivore habits.
    • "This is a great source of protein."
    • While drinking one's own piss is a (flawed) survival tactic, if you're in a place with no clean fresh water, a number of pictures on Memebase among other places put him in situations where he seems to be doing it for no apparent reason at all. To wit:
      • "Sun's going down... better drink my own piss."
      • "Can't find way out of Wal-Mart. Better drink my own piss."
      • "Lock keys in car. DRINK OWN PISS."
      • "Just drank my own piss. Better drink my own piss."
      • "Finally found fresh. Add packet of powdered piss."
      • "Unable to urinate. Better drink my- Oh God."
      • "Out of piss. Drink Cameraman's piss.
    • "Improvise. Adapt. Overcome."
  • Never Live It Down:
    • Grylls is very well-known for drinking his urine on the show. Fortunately he's a good sport about it.
    • The infamous "wild horses", which has been used frequently by detractors of the show mocking it's Kayfabe setup. Similarly, there's the "bear" attack scene and the reports of Grylls staying at a five-star hotel while filming.
  • Squick: Intentional.
  • The Problem with Licensed Games: This LP best demonstrates why
  • Rule of Cool: Some of the things Bear does are more to look cool or be badass than to be actual advice - such as being pulled off the ground on a rope by a helicopter in order to reach the Carpathians.
