Discovery Is Leaving ‘Man vs. Wild’ Host Bear Grylls to Fend for Himself

If you’re a fan of ‘Man vs. Wild’ host Bear Grylls, enjoy him while you can — the Discovery channel has announced it’ll no longer be doing business with the adventurer.

Seems there’s “a continuing contractual dispute” between Grylls and the cable network, causing Discovery to “terminate all current productions” with him. The rift reportedly came to a head when Grylls refused to participate in two other projects he’d promised to do for the channel.

‘Man vs. Wild,’ which features Grylls’ efforts to survive and find a way back to civilization after being stranded in some remote locale, has been a part of the Discovery lineup since 2008, with Hollywood celebs like Ben Stiller, Will Ferrell and Jake Gyllenhaal occasionally joining Grylls during his treks.
