    1. Think he'll drink his own urine? That'd be funny.
      "I have been tromping through the woods but I haven't seen Bigfoot. Now, in situations like this if you can't find water...."
      Director: CUT! We're just doing a program! You aren't giving advice!

    2. Your confusing Les Stroud with Bear Grylls.

      Les Stroud is the real deal, No food, no crew is how the Survivorman does it.

    3. I truly like the Survivor Man series and I watched the Bigfoot interview; Is there any chance the sound Les heard was some kind of bird or Owl?
      Thanks; Dave

    4. Where is this infamous "bear Jail" where they send all the bad grizzly bears in which Todd Standing had his first encounter and was chased out (Radium Springs)? This is where they are nesting, so where is it, please give lat. and long. of location.

  7. Les is a fantastic guy and this is one show that I will be eagerly awaiting its debut. Les is a no nonsense guy and to me,he gives and extra air of credibility to the subject. Way to go Les. However,I do have a word of caution..leave Todd Standing out of it! I had heard rumors that Les was talking of teaming up with Todd...dont do it Les! Todd is a younger version of Biscardi.

  8. Les is the true Survivor man, Sorry Bear you don't hold a flame to Les. Why don't you try and go out with NO camera crew and not stay in hotels before going back out...maybe you will learn something

  9. I heard him dis Man vs Wild in an offhand way. He was talking about harmonizing with nature as a way to survive. He said something like "its not me vs nature" its me "working with nature".."that's why the idea of man VS nature or man VS the wild is so ridiculous"....it was cool.

  10. Les,
    Longtime wanna-be famous tourists such as yourself should really chill and treat Sasquatch/Bigfoot as it is, a normal mammal of the normal, physical world, not as something to be preyed upon for media fame and your own talkshow. That's what life is all about to those like you.....

    1. As it is? As it is right now it's non-existant, far far far from a normal mammal. & the talk show he's on is Joe Rogan's. Les's show is more of a guide/ how to show, like something on DIY. Preyed upon, really? Don't watch it then if you don't want to contribute to his fame. Perhaps you should live more like the squatch & remove yourself from the world of entertainment & social media.
      You should be...non-existant.
      Now go enjoy a juice box, son.

  11. Can't wait, stroud is the only hope I have of truly "finding bigfoot" thanks moneymaker for selling out, short of having a sighting of my own, les stroud can erase my newly found doubts.

  12. From what I understand Stroud went into the woods of Alberta with Todd Standing. Very curious to see these specials.

    Asked Les via Twitter when they would air and his response was "sooooon". So here's hoping soon comes well... soooooon!

  17. these creatures are not apes, not entirely human either. something in between, a type of very primitive people if you will....

  18. I have lost respect for Les Stroud in this Big Foot episode. Silly and Stupid walking thru the woods.

    1. He is taking a professional approach to a subject that has many arguing both ways,real not real.He is trying to present evidence,no more no less.He said make up your own mind.But also has hopes if it is real that he will be able to prove it.And if not real,also prove that point beyond doubt.He is an outdoorsman with a very good background that makes him the perfect person to do this.

  19. I watched both shows with Lee and Todd. Lee Stroud will find the truth as if there is not already enough. They have DNA footage pics but people of the world need the body to believe. Well I believe in the Lord and I have seen him either. anyway at the end of the second episode Lee says he will return by himself with cameras and get the footage if it takes him a month.

  20. Just watched both episodes....and I am somewhat disappointed with Les! When I saw the name of the show, I thought "finally, now I will know from someone I trust". I never thought of Survivor Man in the same category as "those dumb fake reality shows, until today. It did seem as it went on that he was more skeptical of this Todd guy, when they showed his footage I said "what, that's phony!". I actually got the feeling Les was realizing he was being used. This could really hurt his reputation. Or maybe he was desperate for $????? Big disappointment to me.....
    Hopefully Les will come back with more, and prove this is a fraud.

  21. He will find nothing, its all a setup and hoax!

  22. I LIVE in the White Mts, AZ and not only have heard them but had TV and BFRO visit us....I already stopped watching Finding Bigfoot cuz that show is a joke...BUT FOR YOU....to make me believe that you don't have 24hr audio going and you tell your public YOU HEARD SOMETHING WHILE THE CAMERA WAS OFF....hmmmm....get ratings all u can

  23. I am confused.. I thought I just watched episode two but it said the search continues and they had just gotten to the place where Todd encountered 7 of them he said. Is there another epi somewhere?

  24. Where are the replays if both episodes?
