will ferrell, man vs wild

As we previously mentioned, Will Ferrell hooked up with Bear Grylls, host of Discovery’s Man vs. Wild, for a special-edition version of the survival show in northern Sweden’s ice-bound mountain ranges.

Grylls showed Ferrell what it takes to find food in the icy coniferous forests as they climbed trees, improvised snow shoes from saplings, drank their own urine and ate reindeer eyeballs. The video below shows us our first glimpse of some of the hilarity that ensued. My favorite quote from Ferrell: “I don’t know how I got myself into this….I don’t even like camping.” Check it out below:

    I like that show sometimes, but it always bothers me how they kill and eat wild animals – when they don’t have to. I mean, clearly they have a whole camera crew out there who aren’t eating bugs or snakes or other animals. So… why does he actually have to hunt and kill? Why can’t he just fake it or say, “if I were really alone and trying to survive, then I’d eat that, but since I’m a decent human being and don’t have to kill another living creature in order to survive, I’m not going to.”

    Elaine Vigneault is supposed to be realistic ok? so dont speak and just take it easy killing animals is why humans are here we needed to eat them and thats what you are supposed to do when you are trying to survive. If you trying to survive in desert or a tundra you would probably kill an animal just to survive, you have to and you will almost instantly forget about this vegetarian crap.

    I agree…. I understand that some people choose to be vegan but animals (just like plants) were created for our survival. Don’t get me wrong, I am totally against cruel farming and ranching techniques–but they have a purpose. Also, if you were stuck out in the wild, you would eat whatever to survive. If you didnt you’d be ignorant!
