Bear Grylls Quotes Translated

Over the years big Bear has had a lot of stick for not really doing any of his own “stunts” as it were. But he clearly does. For instance here we have a lovely picture of Mr Grylls taking a full bite out of a – delicious and naturally high in iron – reindeer heart and it’s safe to say he’s clearly loving it! Bear-Gylls-Eating-a-Reindeer-HeartThere is no denying that Bear is a crazy individual, you only have to look at his home on a remote island with no access to wifi, twenty-first century sanitation or even Café Nero. But, it has to be said there are definitely some little things he choses to leave out so he looks better for the cameras. So here are a few Bear-isms translated for sceptics like you and me!

Translations: “While I mess around in this long grass talking about kindling the cameraman is going to broadcast our GPS position…”

Translation: “Here’s the deer we found earlier and carried up the mountain so I could sleep in it.”

Translation: “I didn’t bring one so I could make this hat that looks like a condom.”


Bear: “It’s difficult trying to keep your direction amongst all this scrub!”
