discovery channel parts ways with man vs. wild star bear grylls

Adventurer Bear Grylls will thrill us no more on Discoverys Man Vs. Wild after the network ended their relationship with the English star.

The Discovery channel reportedly attributed the split to a contractual dispute and severed all their ties with the action man.

"Unfortunately, Bear and Discovery have not been able to come to mutual agreement on new programming, and he disagrees with Discoverys decision to terminate current productions. Bear has loved the Man vs. Wild journey and looks forward to producing further cutting edge content again soon for his loyal audience," said Grylls publicist Heather Krug, according to Reuters.

Season six of the show was aired last summer. Love him or hate him, he sure got up to some crazy stuff in the wild. We took a dip into YouTube to come up with some of his wackiest survival stunts as an homage to the man who, among other things, showed viewers how to turn a dead seal into a wet suit.

Check it, and other clips, out here (not for the squeamish or the young):
