Bear Grylls opens up on why he's 'less motivated' to explore the ocean after Titanic sub tragedy

Bear Grylls opens up on why he's 'less motivated' to explore the ocean after Titanic sub tragedy

Bear Grylls told Logan Paul about what he thinks of the OceanGate Titan disaster

Bear Grylls has admitted that he’s not as keen to go exploring in the oceans after the disaster that killed everyone on board the OceanGate Titan submersible.

Grylls is known for his wild adventures, as well as his feats of endurance and survival skills.

However, all of that would be worthless at the bottom of the ocean, especially in regards to what happened to the OceanGate's Titan.

According to the US Coast Guard, the experimental submersible suffered a ‘catastrophic failure’ and 'imploded' whilst diving down to great depths on a mission to visit the wreck site of the Titanic.

All five people on board – OceanGate CEO Stockton Rush and four passengers – were instantly killed.

Those passengers, father and son Shahzada and Suleman Dawood, French diver Paul-Henry Nargeolet, and British billionaire Hamish Harding, had paid a reported $250,000 to be on the sub.

Bear Grylls said that exploring underwater doesn't appeal as much to him.

The Titan sub had been the subject of safety concerns over the shape and materials used to make it, and it is believed that it suffered a serious failure which caused the implosion at great atmospheric pressure, killing everyone on board almost instantly.

Grylls recently spoke to Logan Paul on his Impaulsive podcast, giving his thoughts on what happened with the Titan.

He said: "At least it wasn’t five days of running out of oxygen in freezing cold, pitch black, terrified.

“It was an instant death once you get down there, so maybe that’s the only thing from the tragedy."

He did go on to add that it’s still an ‘unnecessary loss of life’, but said that he admired ‘their risk taking spirit’.

"The intent is good,” he said.

“We should all be living with an adventure-centered spirit.

“You’ve got to admire their risk taking spirit as well.”

However, Grylls is unlikely to be getting on board a similar mission.

The adventurer was chatting to Logan Paul on his podcast.

He said: "If something goes wrong in the ocean there’s nothing you can do.

“The thing about subsea stuff is that it doesn't matter how brave, resourced or determined you are, how never-give-up spirit you've got, once that can [implodes] you’re in trouble, so it motivates me less.”

In a statement after the Titan was lost, OceanGate also paid tribute to the spirit of the voyagers, calling them ‘true explorers who shared a distinct spirit of adventure’ and paying tribute to their ‘deep passion for exploring and protecting the world’s oceans’.

“Our hearts are with these five souls and every member of their families during this tragic time." they continued.

“We grieve the loss of life and joy they brought to everyone they knew.

“This is an extremely sad time for our dedicated employees who are exhausted and grieving deeply over this loss."
