I do know that the show I watch can't or won't give me a completely accurate interpretation of the man himself, but I really appreciate the mentality and attitude he has throughout his experiences on the show. Reminds me of Frodo. I would like to think that my guess is an accurate one, and I'll cite the fact that he's also a motivational speaker to support my theory. I find Bear, if nothing else, seriously motivating.
I'd like to remind everyone that this is a man who broke his back in three places during a parachuting accident, and two years later, at 23 years old climbed Everest. He also served in the British Special Forces, crossed the Arctic, and recently broke a world record by flying a powered paraglider over Everest to raise $1,000,000 for Global Angels Charity.
