People watch Survivorman because he really knows what he's doing, he's out there alone, and we all want him to make it.

People watch Bear Grylls with the same grim fascination once reserved for the Crocodile Hunter: we are all secretly hoping he bites it on camera while trying to pull off one of his stupid stunts.

Or at least that's the way it is in my house.

I haven't let my children watch him, although they have begged. I fear he will succumb to a fate similar to that of Steve Irwin.

We have finally quite talking about Steve Irwin's demise and the particularly gory details of the "barb through the heart" and the like...I mean just last week I had a question about whether or not the duckbilled platypus' barbed probiscus could impale a person's heart. I just can't risk it!
