Saw the first hour of the Discovery Channel's Worst-Case Scenario with Bear Grylls (yes, that's what they're calling it). LOVE the title screen.
First impression: Very serious, very dramatic - first episode kicked off with what to do in case of a car accident. Woah. It's not that far from Man vs Wild, it's basically him in the urban jungle.
I'm amazed how he can narrate his way through all this; excellent projection :P
I wonder how much is the man's insurance premiums or whether he's insured AT ALL, with all the stuff that he does on screen. I also pity the camera person tailing him in these situations - that guy's insurance premiums can't be that cheap, either.
I don't think half hour episodes are enough, they should make it an hour.

Been watching the third season of Shear Genius for no reason but just because I wanted to see for myself the changes in host, mentor and permanent judge has done.
In continuing the Bravo trend of getting non-American models to host their reality competition shows, they got McConaughey's baby mama Camila Alves as host, which I don't really get but also don't really care. The accent I could live with. Has the "Hair is important" line her thing, or has it been around since the beginning?
They even got a different mentor for the contestants, which I'm okay with because Rene's "hi hi" greeting and speech impediment was annoying.
I've also been wondering when were they gonna get Jonathan Antin on as permanent judge on the show, it was like when Janice Dickinson was on ANTM - fun to watch them give contestants a piece of their minds, as long as it wasn't YOU.
