Ja look I have no opinion about Triumph, but I enjoy BG's TV show, the few times I've seen it.  

And I enjoy him as a person - he's obviously got a sense of humour and can actually do what he suggests - even if its high risk and perhaps stupid.

But I was equally disconcerted when it became known the show was staged.

But at the end of the day, I still enjoy his shows - actually its better now knowing that its staged because I can put some of his obvious high risk stunts into context.

For the guys calling him a wanker - why don't you try and do what he does?  Parachute out of a helicopter, jump off a cliff into a tree, eat some gross worm, jump into a freezing river and then make a fire with hands that wont work, etc etc.

Not only that, I mean why don't you try make yourself into a famous brand after breaking your back in a skydiving accident, by doing risky stuff on TV.  I'm sure its dead easy? Anyone of you could do it - naturally?

And while I'm told the Ray Meares is better advice - if I ever get into a survival situation, BG will be first on my mind (maybe as much for how not to do it, as how to  :biggrin:)

What pisses ( no pun intended) people off is the fact that they pretend that it is all legit, and thereby assume all or most of their viewers are idiots. I have a friend and his son that thought he was the coolest meanest dude in the universe - till I told them it is all scripted and fake. They were devestated. Their "hero" was a fake!! No one likes to be taken for a fool!

people who watch any "reality" shows , and "think" they have any bearing on "reality" are , in reality  IDIOTS

Maar Welkom is net 'n klomp fokken myners. Hulle tel nie as "normal" mense nie....

As jy wil rof sien gaan vanaand na Kempton Hotel toe. Liewe aarde die goed wat daar rond hang laat mens wonder of party mense nie dalk evolution 'n skip gegee het en gebly het in Neanderthal stage nie...

Come to think of it; 'will there ever be one celebrity that will fit everyone's preference of 'the right man for the job'  ??? 

NO: Just like we all don't like the same brand or maybe same model bikes. So maybe it makes life a bit more interesting, and ad a bit of color and flavor right?.......or are we just so sick already that we just cant stand any idea other than our own  ???
I sometimes can't help to think what some of the households are like where 'dad' is the mighty ruler, the real 'Mr Mean' and everyone else just an idiot.....cause no matter who Triumph, BMW of whoever else see fit to be 'the man' will always get ripped by some of the 'wise ass hardcore men'  :imaposer: Jealousy is more serous disease than ebola
