Ray Mears Finally Tells Us All What He Thinks Of Bear Grylls

If, like me, you've ever wondered what proper survivalist Ray Mears thinks of pretend survivalist Bear Grylls, then you're in for a treat, because the truth is out and it transpires that Ray thinks he's a bit of a bellend.

Ray reckons that Bear doesn't actually teach anyone anything about how to survive in the wild, whereas he teaches you the important stuff.

Like this video, where Ray is showing you how to make a chopping board, because you will definitely need one of those if you're stranded in the wild with nothing to eat.

Speaking at The Times and The Sunday Times Cheltenham Literature Festival, Ray said: "He does something completely different to me. It's become clear that what he does is showmanship.

"I'm not in that job. My job is to teach people how to do things properly." Shots fired.

He also said he's 'really not interested' in what Bear gets up to - he's mostly drinking piss, mate.

I think Bear Grylls is better at getting famous people to drink piss and eat testicles but Ray is better at actually surviving in the wild. What do you think, lads? Who's better? We should make them have a fight. A survival fight. Let's make this happen. In the meantime, fill out this poll.
