bear’s weedy bastard twin

Bear Grylls just posted a message to twitter about the trailer to his new season of Man v Wild. I like Bear, the show gets a bit monotonous and I wish he wouldn’t kill animals when he clearly doesn’t need to, but this latest trailer moved him into far more ridiculous territory. As I watched the unconvincing CGI of him commando rolling across an imaginary landscape, I was getting a memory of someone else. When he turned toward the camera in one of the final frames, it clicked! He is the spitting image of Arnold Rimmer!

Even better, he is Arnold Rimmer’s wet dream of how he wishes he could be! I’ll never be able to look at Bear the same way again!
