For the past seven years, American audiences have thrilled (or gagged) at the sight of Bear Grylls gleefully digging in to putrefying animal parts, insect larvae, mammalian reproductive organs and other various and sundry items that would give your average turkey vulture pause. But maybe not any more. It seems that Bear and Discovery Channel have parted ways...
From this story on the BBC:
TV adventurer Bear Grylls, star of the survival show Man vs. Wild, has been sacked by the Discovery Channel. The US channel said: "Due to a continuing contractual dispute with Bear Grylls, Discovery has terminated all current productions with him." Grylls, who has presented the show since 2006, is known for eating insects and drinking animal urine in the wild. His publicist confirmed the move saying they could not reach a "mutual agreement on new programming".
