Bear Grylls, a British adventurer and survival expert, is a famous TV personality known for his impressive survival skills and wild ways. Over the years, he has taught us how to start a fire without a matchbox, drink urine when there's no water around, and look at lizards as potential food because they are rich in proteins.

But what if Bear Grylls were... Indian?

1. He'd get a packed lunch from his mother and wouldn't have to hunt.
