The Craziest Man vs. Wild Moments

You may have heard that new episodes of the hit show Man vs Wild are airing on the Discovery Channel (Wednesdays at 9:00 pm). In the latest episode, airing this Wednesday, Bear Grylls travels to Vietnam. What you probably haven’t heard, is that during the shoot Bear severed his middle finger down to the bone on a piece of bamboo. He did a quick patch job and sewed it up but it wasn’t pretty.

Here’s what Bear had to say on his blog:

“The production team flew me back to the UK, but what concerns me is the lack of feeling in the end of the finger now. I also sliced off the tip of another finger which bled like nobody’s business, but the raw flesh is covering up now slowly. Dank, damp jungle conditions are bad for such injuries, trust me!”

This guy is one crazy bastard. So in honor of Bear Grylls, here are the craziest moments from Man vs. Wild (up to this point).
