Bear Grylls Fired From ‘Man Vs. Wild’, Discovery Channel has terminated its relationship with Grylls, the British television personality and star of the network’s “Man vs. Wild.” Grylls, who joined the show when it launched launched in 2006, was fired by Discovery after he refused to participate in two unannounced projects he was contracted for, say sources. The sixth season of “Man Vs. Wild” wrapped in August.

This is not the first time Discovery has had a disagreement with its talent. In 2010, the network sued Deadliest Catch captains Jonathan and Andy Hillstrand for allegedly failing to complete work on the spinoff “Hillstranded.” The $3 million lawsuit prompted the Hillstrands and captain Sig Hansen to quit, though a month later the dispute was settled, the suit was dropped and all three returned to work on the show.

Grylls, 37, has parlayed his fame as an extreme outdoorsman into an international media career. He’s written nearly a dozen books, many of them survival guides. His memoir “Mud, Sweat and Tears” — due to be published in the U.S. in May — already is a best-seller in England and Australia. He’s landed numerous endorsement deals including with Dockers and Degree deodorant. There’s a “Man vs. Wild” video game, he has an iPhone app, and his clothing line is sold at REI and Walmart.
