Seems like readers quickly realised that he would never have survived the real dangers lurking at the University of Newcastle.
Here are some comments posted to the Newcastle Herald website.
- "Fantastic video, but the real dangers don't lurk outside the doors at the University. Next video I hope Bear ventures into the real danger areas where management is hiding, ready to destroy any ethical and honest people who dare venture out to speak the truth" (Staff member)
- "Yes @ Staff member you are unfortunately spot on." (steve)
- "Well done, law students! So good to have a laugh about the uni. Can you do another one please where "Bear Gryllis" reports staff misconduct/plagiarism and how he uses his survival skills to avoid security, not get gagged, not lose his job, not lose his family and friends. Now that would be the REAL challenge at the University of Newcastle.." (ex-staff member)
- "I found those same mosquitoes as Bear Gryllis did but the ones I found were disguised as senior management. These ones suck you dry if you are an ethical member of staff or a student - they take all you blood, your income, family, friends etc" (sucked dry).
