Les Stroud. All stills courtesy OLN. Les Stroud, known on the internet as Canada's version of a lumberjack MacGyver, has historically been the guy credited with kickstarting the survival genre of reality TV. Filming shows for networks like Discovery and OLN for well over a decade, Stroud has become known in the survivalist culture as a no-bullshit, no-nonsense explorer who sells everything from Les Stroud-branded pucks to Les Stroud-branded harmonicas on his website.
A few days ago a video shot during the filming of the upcoming season of his show Survivorman was released online. In the clip, shot in Mongolia, Stroud is seen moments after he was involved in a car accident in which he and his crew's vehicle skidded off the road 25 feet and rolled twice.
Stroud tore multiple muscles and broke a few ribs in the crash, which effectively ended all filming for the new season. Now, nine weeks later, he spoke to VICE about his past as a pot-smoking rocker, the creation of Survivorman , and his vision for the future. VICE: Let's start from the beginning.
According to the internet, you were born in Toronto—Mimico of all places. How did you go from the urban life to building fires in the wild? Les Stroud: My upbringing was in a west-end suburb of Etobicoke. It was very white-bread. Just a flat-out boring existence. You know, I grew up listening to Led Zeppelin and Styx, smoking pot, and drinking beer I think I always wanted to escape, but as I got older, I discovered how much I loved rock and roll and that's what I did for a long time.
Because of that, I've been in and out of music since then, but back when I was a kid, I used to watch a lot of videos of Jacques Cousteau and I had this strong desire to one day be a National Geographic photographer. I just thought it was the coolest thing.
Eventually, at some point in my mids, I decided that I really wanted to go for a wilderness adventure. I didn't even know what that meant—I just came up with that phrase in my head, but I started looking around and I found a course on survivalism. Once I went through that, it was like a marriage made in heaven. When did you first start filming your own treks into the wild? Coming from a background of music and performing, I never lost that desire to be a performer and to entertain people.
I used to work on music television for a while and that job gave me skills such as editing and camerawork, so it wasn't too long after I got into doing survivalism that I realized how there was virtually no film work at all that showed real survivalism to its fullest. There were home videos, but they were pretty lame and pathetic. People either didn't know what they were doing or it was poorly shot, which are both death rattles for anything that people want to watch. I saw a need—I saw a need to display survival skills on film and not only teach but entertain people through my experiences, so I started applying what I knew from the wilderness and my time as an entertainer.
You mentioned home videos and the lack of a market for survival videos, so I can't imagine you started off with a hit TV series. Did filming your survivalism always pay? Surprisingly, it did. My plan originally was just to make a high-quality, DIY, home video-type series, but I eventually decided to try my hand at pitching it to a television network instead.
They actually bit pretty quick, so once I was able to get it on television, it changed everything and ended up starting the entire genre of survival TV. Tell me how Survivorman came to be. I had made my own film called Snowshoes and Solitude which I filmed out in the bush, so in combination with that and my experience working at MuchMusic, I had a very focused pitch I brought to the producers.
I told them, "Listen, I can go out into the wild for a week with no crew. I pretty much made it clear how easily this could become a series—a guy stuck in different locations trying to survive and put on a good show—and they loved it. The rest is history. What are some of your favorite places you've been?
Well, I'm still a big, big fan of jungles, although it's not a fun place to survive. Same thing goes for the high Arctic or the Peruvian Andes—I mean, these are places that really resonated with me, despite how difficult they were to actually navigate and thrive in. What's the craziest situation you've ever been in? Meeting those people and living with them was an incredibly profound experience.
According to the video, you got into a pretty bad car accident while filming the new season of Survivorman. Can you walk me through what happened? We really don't know exactly why the car flipped because it all happened so quick. Whether it was driver error, or whether something gave out in the steering, we don't really know. One minute, I was looking sleepyheaded out the window and the next minute, we had skidded out 25 feet and rolled twice.
It was over like that. So once it flipped, you checked on your crew, then, once the pain set in, you told your producer to film you. Where do you draw the line between putting a show on and actually focusing on your own survival?
Honestly, once we flipped and the car stopped, I knew the show was over. This was it. There was really no way I was going to finish the episode. So, being how my mind works, I told my producer Max to turn the camera on and document everything that was about to happen.
I knew that this was going to be something that would turn out to be garbage and be dumped from the show, or would be one hell of a post on Facebook. It thankfully turned out to be the latter. The video says that along the way back, because the helicopters couldn't pick you up, your shoulder reset itself back into place and that you wanted to continue with show but were flown back to Toronto anyway. Were you able to finish the Mongolia episode? Unfortunately, no.
That ended the season. I had a punctured lung and that was only nine weeks ago. We might do something neat with it in the editing process though. You seem to be always thinking of the audience. Do you ever draw the line with some of the shows you're doing when you're not comfortable filming something? It has happened in the past, sure, but because I mainly film everything myself or run with a small crew, it's not a major issue.
There were a few moments when filming stuff for Shark Week that I said, "All right, this is a little much. It was definitely something that made me uncomfortable and I raised my concerns to the crew.
We still did the shoot, though. With his new show out now, what are your thoughts on that comparison? I understand why the comparisons get made, but there really is no comparison. This is not me with pretentiousness or bravado or ego but I actually don't think there is overlap.
I go out there to survive, to show people real-life scenarios and to make my show informative and entertaining. What I created with Survivorman had never been done before. All of the shows that have come since then such as Dual Survival or Naked and Afraid are carefully orchestrated, just like many that have come before them. Can you get into detail? Are these shows straight faked or are the survivalists just pointed in the right direction? A little bit of both. In shows like Naked and Afraid , a lot of the times, you'll see somebody who has a fear of caves just happen to conveniently run into a big, dark, scary cave as the only form of shelter, or an episode will put emphasis on wolves early on only to have a direct confrontation with, low and behold, a pack of wolves later in the episode.
All of this stuff is a sham. It's not genuine survival. They have to fake these scenarios in order to achieve that consistently. Even worse is those shows that have those instructors, like Bear, or Cody [Lundin], or Matt [Graham]. These shows are bullshit. Reality TV is shit—it's not real at all. If you watch these shows for entertainment, fine, but don't for a second think you're seeing anything that's real, true, or demonstrating genuine survival skills.
So you have never backed out of a situation or had your crew accommodate you with, say, a nice cot to sleep in? Absolutely not. I am the only guy in charge, I am the only one who makes decisions.
The only times we have been pulled out was in Utah once because I was extremely dehydrated and couldn't go on, along with one time in Labrador because my crew could not handle the conditions. I was OK, but I look out for my crew. When it comes to my own experience, I don't half-ass these things like a lot of the reality stars do. Finally, in the wild, do you ever drink your own piss? That's not something I do, no. Follow Jake Kivanc on Twitter. Sep 29 , am.

Rather, the major issue is that he was deceptive about many of the things he filmed and said in the episode. Simply put: he said many things and implied many things that simply were not true. I understand insurance and producer requirements that may limit where he can go, but I do not understand statements made directly by him that are outright untrue. Many people want to defend the location issue, but do so while ignoring the deceptive statements.
I have always been a fan of the survival television show Survivorman , so I set out to find where Les Stroud filmed the episode that was set in Utah. As an avid backpacker, I wanted to find the location simply because I thought it looked like a nice place to hike and I thought it would be fun to find it. What I found, however, made me question whether or not the show misleads its viewers like some of the other survival shows have been known to do.
From what I found, I no longer trust the show. But my goal with this site is simply to present the information to the reader so the reader can decide what the facts mean. This site is certainly a critical analysis of the Survivorman Utah episode, but I invite you to analyze the information to reach an informed decision. Maybe this is just how shows are filmed. But you can make your own conclusions.
Please read the following issues, think about the information presented, digest the locations on the map, evaluate the pictures, and even watch the episode again. The pictures on this site are intended to show that we did actually find the locations filmed in the episode, and they are intended to assist in the critical analysis of the show.
By comparing the screenshots of the episode with our pictures you can identify the different geological features that appear in both pictures. This should help you confirm that we were in the correct spots shown on the episode. Color-coded arrows on the pictures point to the matching features in the screen shots. For example, simply look at the feature identified by the green arrow in the screen shot from the episode and compare it with the feature identified by the green arrow in our picture.
The map will be very useful in analyzing the information. When you first open the map, it will be zoomed out far enough so you can see all three of the different primary locations. You will need to zoom in very close at the two campsites to see all of the locations.
You may also want to change the map view to different types of maps Google road, Topo, etc to help visualize things better. If you click on a marker you will see links for that marker to photographs of that area. Camp 1 is too far from the landing site to get there by bicycle in one day.
The episode implied that he rode a bicycle from the landing site to camp 1 on the first day. The landing site for the helicopter at the beginning of the episode was below the rim of the canyon at Smith Fork. This means that there is a cliff band between where the helicopter landed and the top of the desert floor. The cliff next to where he landed was the actual canyon rim.
The landing site was 16 miles in a straight line from camp 1. The rocks of two mountains, Mt Ellsworth and Mt Holmes, are also standing between the landing site and camp 1. It would likely take days to walk or bike from Smith Fork to camp 1 via the canyons or over the mountains; the episode implies that he moved from the landing site to camp 1 on the first day.
Because of these obstacles, the only way to get a bicycle from the landing site to camp 1 in less than several days is via Hwy which skirts the base of Mt Ellsworth and Mt Holmes. The landing site is over 22 miles away from camp 1 via roads, several miles of which are dirt roads. Additionally, there are no roads in the immediate vicinity of the landing site itself; the closest dirt road from the landing site is over a mile away on the other side of Smith Fork Canyon, of which approximately half of that distance is across untracked desert sand.
Camp 2 is too far from camp 1 to get there by foot in one day. From camp 1 to camp 2 it is 9 miles in a straight line, with the previously described canyon complexes and the Little Rockies in the way. It is 19 miles via road from camp 1 to camp 2, and there is a dirt road that goes directly to the top of the canyon where he filmed before descending down into the canyon.
The same obstacles that separate the landing site from camp 1 also separate camp 1 from camp 2, specifically the canyon complexes and the mountains. Additionally, Stroud filmed from the top of the canyon above camp 2 before descending into the canyon, further suggesting that he did not travel via the bottom of the canyon to that spot; if he had traveled via canyon from camp 1 to camp 2 it would have required him to climb out of the canyon, film from the top, then descend back down into the canyon.
The trail he used to descend into the canyon is the only route down into that canyon that I am aware of without using rappelling equipment. Walking between those camps via the canyons would likely require at least two days. Walking between the camps above the canyons would require him to use the roads and would likely take at least two full days. Camp 1 was approximately feet less than yards from Highway The road and the cars on the road could be seen and heard easily from the shelter.
We simply parked near the site at the pull-off and walked the yards from the road to the site. If a helicopter had come there, the closest landing site would have been the road. Look at the map to see how close camp 1 was to the highway. According to its official website, the show includes Stroud dealing with the aftermath of unsuccessful or inappropriate survival techniques and decisions.
The reasons for these errors can include time limitations, being unfamiliar with a technique, or misjudging weather conditions, all frequently encountered by people in survival situations.
While acknowledging the errors and the negative effect on his emotional state that they can create, Stroud usually remains calm, which is described as being vital to successful survival. In addition to the physical challenges posed by each survival situation, Stroud confronts the psychological effects of isolation, physical injury, and exhaustion.
Throughout the episode, Stroud narrates to the camera, commenting on his physical and psychological state, providing survival tips, and making jokes. Stroud also often dismantles available equipment e. Prior to each episode, Stroud relies heavily on local experts to brief him on flora and fauna and key survival techniques unique to that particular location. Drawing upon this local knowledge and guidance, Stroud shows the audience how to find viable sources of nourishment, avoid dangerous or unhealthy ones, and utilize them appropriately and efficiently.
Stroud frequently explains that gathering food in this manner should be reserved for true survival situations in order to preserve the environment. Stroud's survival situations are reported to have helped numerous people in real-life situations who found themselves stranded in the elements.
The burden of having to carry, place, and retrieve the camera equipment for each shot adds to the challenge and difficulty of each survival situation, and in several episodes Stroud chooses to leave a camera behind, videotaping him as he departs the area the camera is retrieved later , and in one episode taking place in the Amazon , Stroud is forced to flee his camp and abandon all but two of his cameras due to fear of a stalking jaguar.
The goal is both to ensure Stroud's safety and to sketch out interesting scenarios and techniques that can be illustrated on the show. He later records a voice-over commentary in the studio, where he explains his decision-making process and details of how he accomplished various tasks.
On July 16, , Stroud and a support crew of four in the nearby safety camp were cited by the United States National Park Service for commercial videotaping without a permit at Taroka Arm, a seldom-visited area at Kenai Fjords National Park in Alaska. Investigators found a driftwood shelter surrounded by multiple cameras on the beach.
The support crew was camped near a sensitive archaeological site. In September , Stroud stated in a compilation show Survivorman Top that at one time he had contracted a parasitic worm infestation in his mouth that lasted over a year.

Some off the survival techniques he shows us is very extreme and should not be attempted by anyone unless in real danger.
