a trip in rural Ireland?

I mean, come on, ffs.

Surely the biggest challenge is getting enough footage without walkers in it?

I dunno, he could probably do a programme in my back garden and find enough danger to make a case for 'survival'. Seriously, it's a jungle out there!

cornsilk Sat 04-Jul-09 20:31:25

I just caught the end of that. Did he blow up a dead sheep?

nickytwotimes Sat 04-Jul-09 20:31:56

Personally, I'd like to see him give survival a go on a sink estate.
Bet he couldn't.

Cornsilk - he fashioned some kind of float with it.

I won't tell you what he was eating this week...

nickytwotimes Sat 04-Jul-09 20:34:02

Lol, monkey!

expatinscotland Sat 04-Jul-09 20:34:45

Who cares? He was showing a lot skin there .

cornsilk Sat 04-Jul-09 20:34:52

Did he kill it himself or just find it lying around?

nickytwotimes Sat 04-Jul-09 20:35:50

Oh no, far too pale and British for my taste.
No bloody wonder with that kind of diet.

Not sure Corn.
It's on Channel4 plus 1 atm if you have a strong enough stomach.

I just saw a minute or two of it in which he was thinking about climbing down a cliff using an old fishing rope he found on a beach. I thought "ohh ffs" and switched off. It is all so staged and I don't warm to him. He isn't fit to lick Ray Mears's boots!

cornsilk Sat 04-Jul-09 20:38:18

I think I'll watch it back later. Want to see if I can spot any pubs in the background which he could've nipped into for a Guinness and a packet of tayto crisps.

expatinscotland Sat 04-Jul-09 20:39:26

i only watch it to see him get his kit off .

nickytwotimes Sat 04-Jul-09 20:40:01

No, Mears is superior imho.

Mmmm, Taytos!

THe editing team had a tough old job with that episode.

nickytwotimes Sat 04-Jul-09 20:40:42

That should be, YES, Mears is superior. Ahem.

cornsilk Sat 04-Jul-09 20:42:25

I challenge him to survive a long car journey with my chn.

cornsilk Sat 04-Jul-09 20:43:07

(That should be children - not chin)

poshwellies Sat 04-Jul-09 20:43:30

Do you think he'll drink his own piss?

I think he secretly enjoys doing that.

cornsilk Sat 04-Jul-09 20:47:52

I bet he does even when he doesn't need to. Bet he loves playing 'Dare.'

HolyGuacamole Sat 04-Jul-09 20:52:13

Agree expat! He is not too shabby that's for sure! I wouldn't kiss him though, not after seeing what he puts in his mouth - yuck! I so fancy him though, all that action and adventure......swoon.

Saw one recently and his wife and kids were on it and they were all beautiful, a lovely looking little family smile

expatinscotland Sat 04-Jul-09 20:54:42

I wouldn't kick him outta bed, Guacamole, that's for sure.

cornsilk Sat 04-Jul-09 20:57:33

Would you get him in a bed? Doesn't he sleep in hedges?

HolyGuacamole Sat 04-Jul-09 20:58:30

ROFL, I wouldn't either......but DH would wink DH hates him, but only because I fancy him grin DH thinks it's cheap and tacky that he gets his kit off all the time.......

......and I laughed....'s not that when Kylies sticking her gold lamed arse in the air is it?! smile

HolyGuacamole Sat 04-Jul-09 20:58:56

I'd let him sleep in my hedge!

Buddleja Sat 04-Jul-09 21:04:39

I've never seen him with his kit off sad

Would it change my mind about him? I find him too disappointingly posh to fancy at the moment
