    Yeah, the guy goes out in the wilderness to survive and when the filming stops, he returns to his 5 star hotel and LIVES!.Is grandma’s sister anything like Grandpa Simpson?

    Don’t worry, Gramma’s sister has survived her visits with Earl. She’s a good Survivor Woman.

    Survivor: Earl vs Pearl. Has a ring to it, (or is that a rhyme?)

    Yes, there are a number of survivor shows that are fake on various levels. They’ve got camera crews, support teams, and in some of them, the “survivors” sleep in local hotels during the night. Bear Grylls is notorious for this sort of thing.

    However, “Surviorman” is different. It consists of one man, Les Stroud, who goes out into the wilderness in survival situations all by himself. He takes no production crew and performs all the camera work himself. So not only is he worrying about the essentials of food, water, fire, shelter and other such things; he has the additional burden of setting up the cameras and lugging the equipment around with nobody to help him.

    He seldom goes in unprepared. He studies up on the local floral and fauna, and often spends time with the indigenous people to learn how they survived in the area for thousands of years. So in that sense, it’s “fake”. But that’s the only part that is.

    One rarely hears from true survivors, barring publishing agents and made-for-TV movies.I’ve always wanted to be “marooned” or “at risk” with these reality a-holes and coach them on what survival is all about.Oh yeah, I’m a survivor.

    But they will “re-create” it when it means advertising revenue.Nothing is beyond “reality TV” except reality and discrimination.
