Recently, more and more people are uncovering scandal after scandal about the shows on the Discovery Channel. Discovery Communications, the parent company of TLC, Animal Planet, and The Discovery Channel must be used to every controversy by now. While these things occasionally cause the cancellation of a show, we cannot help but wonder why the Discovery Channel attracts behavior like this. Let us look back at the most scandalous things that ever happened in all of Discovery Channel history!
Bear Grylls Got Fired
We do not think there is a whole lot of things that Bear Grylls would not do, although he nearly got fired for not putting in work apart from Man Vs. Wild. It turns out that he was not completely willing to work on two upcoming projects by the network. Instead of letting him stay on the show that shot him to stardom, they fired him after six seasons for unruliness.
The Alaskan Bush People Are Not Alaskan
This show has seen lots of controversy in the past. The truth is that the people on the show are not even Alaskan. On top of that, their old home was only 10 miles from the town center! The family members were given citations about false statements about the residency on their hunting and fishing licenses. They were actually living in Texas and Colorado before moving to Alaska in 2012.
