As most people know by now Dave Canterbury was let go after it was discovered that he falsified his credentials.
His partner, Cody Lunin issued this statement:
|“…The goal of the survival instructor is to keep people alive. To accomplish this goal, honesty, integrity, trust and competence must come first. These core values cannot be compromised or people’s lives are needlessly put at risk. In a profession where human lives are at stake, dishonesty about ones background and experience is an inexcusable breach of trust.”|
I have to say that I always liked Dave, he gave balance to Cody, who I feel can be a bit of a d*ck. To me, Cody comes off as arrogant and a bit crazy. Wear some damn shoes!!!
So, even though I think that Dave shouldn’t have lied, who the hell vetted his statements for the Discovery Channel? It doesn’t take away from what he did, and he should be punished, but purely selfishly, I don’t like the new guy.
I think it would be cool to have a beer with Jospeh Teti, and I respect his skills and appreciate the service he’s given his country, but I don’t like him on the show. I feel like he’s afraid to argue with Cody and is always kissing the bare foot bandits ass, which doesn’t make for great TV. Dave was always willing to tell Cody he was being a nut when he was being a nut.
I wish you’d been more honest on your resume Dave. I’m sure I’m not the only one who misses you.
You can still enjoy Dave in the first two seasons of Dual Survivor:
