Am I the only tool in America that watches this show?

I am so into this crap I have studied everything about that damn mountain and bought or DVR'd anything ever filmed on that thing.

I am a complete Everest freak because of this show. This is better than Deadliest Catch. I get the feeling not so much for everyone else in the world heh.

I've read so many Everest climbs, and seen so much on them.... I'm soooooo tired of Everest and the morons who feel some sort of need to climb it. It's the same story told over and over anyways.

I sometimes feel the same way but can't stop watching stuff about it and reading about it. The people that do feel the need to climb it these days do really seem to be morons for the most part. It annoys the shit out of me that they put the sherpas (the real badasses of the Himalayas) in such danger with their bad decisions.

That said, I have been watching the new season. I'm glad they got rid of that stupid "Ever, Ever, Ever, Ever......Rest, Rest, Rest, Rest" chant that played in the background a lot last season.

That "Biker Tim" jackass HAS to die on Everest. It's that simple. That clown is everything that's wrong with western civilization wrapped up in one awful package.

If that mountain doesn't kill him, then the mountain god those sherpa savages are all worshiping and paying tribute to is just useless.

Saw this on the Guide, but thought I'd seen it before. Is it a reality show that follows a bunch of climbers? Is one of them a Motorcycle dude, one has artificial legs, a Euro, a fireman and then a doctor?

It's a second season...same expedition leader but it takes place during this years's climbing season. Tim the biker is back for a second try and that asthmatic guy that wants to summit without oxygen is back also but the rest of the people on the expedition are new including a guy who wants to attempt the first double summit of Everest (up the south route in Nepal, then down the north route in Tibet and back again.... I might have that backwards)

Nice! Gonna DVR this one for sure.

Got into Everest after reading "Into Thin Air" by John Krakaeur as well as a comic called "Concrete" about a guy who gets his brain transplanted into an indestructible alien body, so he decides to do crap a normal human couldn't do (easily). The story of his Everest climb is full of historical bits.

No Shit.
Too bad he lives because hes on that stupid After show.
He fuckin rubs me the wrong way. Irritating as all hell. I would like to go a few rounds with that asshole.

Even if he makes it to the Top I will be pissed.

Did you see the fucking pussy taking Oxygen at camp 2 , then running up the mountain like he some sort of badass while everyone is coughing and shit? I surprised he doesnt have a Sherpa carry him up there on his back.
Rich MF'r I really hate him.

ive been watching it, i caught the end of last season, and have been watching this season, and yes the biker guy pisses me off, but the wana be aging hippy chick is the worst, i was so glad that they dumped her from the "summit team" i for one love adventure but climing everest isnt really on my list of things to do, if i want to see it i will go to IMAX on acid and drink a slushy real fast. not to mention that as far as im concerned the hikers themselves have trashed everest,

Basically, that is what "Biker Tim", and all the rest of the annoying rookie jackasses are doing... being carried up the mountain by sherpas. Maybe not directly, but in every other sense... half these clowns wouldn't have made it to Advanced Base Camp if the sherpas weren't carrying every tent, bottle of "O's" :icon_roll, every bit of food, and just about every other scrap of equipment it takes to get to the top. The only load "the clients" are carrying is their immense, bloated egos.

For every "Biker Tim" who summits, there is a sherpa who made the same climb ten times.
