About Bear Grylls
Would you be able to survive on a desolate island or a remote desert if you had to? Well, Bear Grylls could teach you a thing or two about survival skills. Serving with the Special Air Force in the British Army, Grylls was specially trained as a survival expert. In addition, he was one of the youngest to climb to the summit of Mount Everest and made the dangerous climb to the peak of the Himalayans. He has also broken world records in high-altitude ballooning, skydiving, and other feats. Using these and other life experiences, Bear Grylls teaches television viewers how to survive in popular wilderness destinations on his episodes of “Man vs. Wild,” which can be seen on the Discovery Channel. In this television series, Grylls intentionally strands himself in the outdoors and demonstrates survival techniques to find his way back to civilization. He escapes quicksand, survives sharks, withstands extreme temperatures, navigates jungles, and lives off the land. “Man vs.Wild” quickly became the number one cable show in America, reaching 1.2 billion viewers in over 200 countries. Besides his popular television series, Bear Grylls has also written 10 books, including the top seller “Mud, Sweat, and Tears.” Bear Grylls and the Discovery Channel released “Man vs. Wild” video games for the Xbox, PlayStation, and Wii for the show's fans. Furthermore, Grylls paired with the company, Craghoppers, to release his own line of outdoor adventure clothing. He also has his own line of survival kits, knives, multi-tools, and outdoor equipment.
