entertainment industry coach question 344: is too crazy to post in the subject line so read on but be warned...

This just goes to show that I do read all entertainment related questions sent to me, although that doesn't mean I have the answer to them all. This one stumped me, but as I'm a fan of the show, would be curious to hear from any loyal readers who may have some insight.

ps. Please don't let this start a trend in wacky question asking (though once in a while I enjoy them). The question read exactly as follows:

"Dear Greenlight Coach, you are so good at answering questions every day, maybe you can help me with one that's been bothering me for a while. If Bear Grylls from Man vs Wild drinks his own pee because he needs to keep his fluids going in, (he said that it may seem disgusting, but your own urine is safe to drink) then why does everyone make such a big deal over washing hands after you pee? Clearly the germs can't be that harmful if drinking it is okay."

Well readers, there you have it. The first question the Greenlight Coach can't answer without doing a little research. Because I don't feel the question will help you move your career further along, I'm not going to bother with the research. BUT just in case I have some reality crew people out there who get themselves into a bad situation during a shoot of Survivor, perhaps someone can enlighten us to this mystery.

I'd have saved it for April 1st, but I don't think he was kidding.
