I would agree with that last statement knapp at least the part about with the danger scale, yes of course hes in much less danger than a person would be if they were actually stranded but hes still in real danger, we can agree on that..
As to he and his "crew" setting up scenes by scaring off whatever wild animals are around? I suppose that makes sense and might be the case sometimes but I'm not sure if that does/can happen the entire show. I mean the show with him in the Pacific with tiger sharks bumping the bottom of his bamboo raft was crazy
. I don't know how you let them get that close and expect to be able to save Bear should that raft flip. And really how many times did we watch the Crocodile Hunter dive into the swamp to wrestle with a Crock? Some people are just nutz, I really think these guys do this stuff for the same reason people jump out of airplanes or bungie jump, for the thrill.
I haven't seen that one, and I'll freely admit I'm just speculating here. I'll have to watch a couple more episodes I guess. He's an engaging guy, and the one episode I've seen I liked well enough.
Oh I know you're just speculating and it makes sense especially when you throw in the insurance company part of it, I never really thought about that.
That episode with the sharks is really cool, he gets "stranded" on a small island in the Pacific and does all the typical castaway type stuff, making fire, climbing trees for coconuts, making shelter, trying to spear fish etc. Then he decides to build a raft to get off the island complete with a palm leaves sail thats when he encounters the Tiger Sharks. The coolest part of that episode is when he gets this poison oil from some plant and puts it in a tide pool to kill some small fish to eat, the poison doesn't affect humans.
Heres a clip from that episode with the sharks.http://youtube.com/watch?v=hi5vr07Tgvc
You know there could be boats around with guys with machine guns and I still wouldn't want to be on that raft.
