In one of Discovery Channel’s most popular survival series, Man Vs. Wild, we learned many things about survival, such as making a totally sweet hammock out of vines, filtering swamp water using your shirt (provided it hasn’t been torn to pieces by wolves), and eating all sorts of things—most of which were disgusting—to prevent starvation.
In particular, we remember vividly the “eating all sorts of things” part.
We mean, seeing someone squeeze the juice out of elephant poop, and drink it, is something that’s understandably hard to forget.
That Bear Grylls, is something else, isn’t he?
Or is he? Premiering on November 1, Monday, 9 PM on the Discovery Channel is a new survival show called Dual Survival. It features two skilled experts: the military-trained Dave Canterbury, a Special Reaction Team (SRT) instructor, a sniper, and close-quarter combat trainer, and Cody Lundin, a 20-year “naturalist” survival veteran who has been walking barefoot for more than 20 years.
And in an interview, Cody was asked what separated their show from Man Vs. Wild, and if it offered anything new.
He answered: “Yes, real skills and someone who actually knows how to do them.” That’s some fighting words right there.
