Looks like popular reality show Man vs. Wild is dealing with some fraud charges.
But this British adventurer is now the subject of an investigation by U.K.'s Channel 4, which already has confirmed that Grylls checked into motels on a few occasions when he was depicted on TV having slept under the stars. Other allegations have been made suggesting that the crew that records Grylls in action isn't as hands-off as it might appear to viewers.
On a sidenote I'm pitching a new reality series: TAN vs. Girls Gone Wild, where we see if TAN can survive hanging out with drunk college girls who like to bare their breasts. It's going to be tough, but I'm watching a lot of porn, and hanging out with a lot of drunk girls to steel myself for the challenge. Wish me luck!
