I've been avoiding this forum for too long.
Although you can't beat survivor man, I get tiered of the same old (I hold down the fort for a week and only eat about 200 calories).
In many of the situations and locations survivor man is faced with, he would not be rescued.
Man vs Wild on the other hand may be a little more amusing due to the fact that he has to get back to civilization, but, he is always place in locations were civilization can always be found in 5 days or less with an easy walking pace.
This makes the show much better in a way that 99% of the people that get lost that will not get rescued now have a "stupid", "life risking" way of making back to civilization.
If you know you are in a location were you can stay put and be rescued, Man vs Wild is not the show to watch.
The only good thing about the stupid things, Man vs Wild does, is if you also did something stupid and put your self in a similar situation, the dumb but life-saving techniques he does can actually save your life.
They need a show that commentates and compares the 2 in the same places and see who is smarter, Man vs. Wild taking off or Survivor Man staying put.
