Now imagine...he probably really was not close to dehydration and drank it just to show what people may have to do in a real situation. I'd give him more props for drinking it in that case than if he really had to.
Love the show, so I saw this article and frankly wasn't surprised. The show is about education, not proving how tough he is, as he'* done that being the youngest to climb Everest.
Yes he did drink his own urine, and studies have said doing so is negligible, because it dehydrates you at the same time. He does stuff to show you how to survive, not to show he can. He'* walked into quicksand and sink holes knowingly, becauuse there'* only one way to show people to get out.
