Bear Grylls says he’d eat a human

Bear Grylls has revealed he would eat a human under the right circumstances.

The Mission Survive star said that he “wouldn’t think twice” about eating a human in desperate circumstances, and that he would insist one of his sons ate him if it was a case of life or death.

Asked by Heat magazine whether he would eat a person in such a situation, Grylls replied: “Of course. If it was one of my sons and I, left in the jungle, I’d insist he ate me.

“One of the greatest stories ever is Alive. The people who died insisted they ate them. I wouldn’t think twice about it if I had to.”

Grylls, who added that he has eaten around 100 rattlesnakes in his life, said that the weirdest things he has ever eaten were “raw goats’ testicles, a camel’s intestinal fluids or bear poo… or maybe elephant dung, snakes and scorpions”. 

The adventurer and survivalist also said that urine “tastes like s**t”.

“It’s terrible and people always ask me in bars if I want a pint of urine,” he noted. “I’m not one of those people who does it for fun, though.”
