Is survivor man fake?

its really a matter of opinion because he does carry a satellite phone most of the time but he he's only used it as far as i know, i would like to say also that most of the time the phone really wouldn't work. he is alone in the wild with real dangers so you decide he's realer than "man v.s. wild " I'd say that.

The above is the first answer given but alas I feel that I must improve in the illiterate babble this person gave.

From Wikipedia:

Les Stroud (born October 20, 1961, in Mimico, Ontario[1][2][3]) is a Canadian musician, film maker, and survival expert best known as the creator, writer, producer, director, cameraman and host of the television program Survivorman. After a short career behind the scenes in the music industry, Stroud became a full-time wilderness guide, survival instructor and musician based in Huntsville, Ontario. Stroud has produced survival-themed programming for The Outdoor Life Network, The Discovery Channel, The Science Channel, and YTV. The survival skills imparted from watching Stroud's television programs have been cited by several people as the reason they lived through harrowing wilderness ordeals.[4]

That I feel is enough info to answer the said question but if you still want to know if Survivorman is real I would suggest watching the shows from Episode 1 Season 1 to the last episode in Season 3. If you have watched it once than you can not fully comprehend the depth that Les put himself through each time. As for any comparisons to "Man vs Wild" than I suggest you watch this video and judge for yourself.
