Edward Micheal Grylls, better known as Bear, was born in London in 1974.

He lived in Northern Island until he was 4, then moved to Bembridge on the Isle of Wight.

Bear displayed his adventurous spirit from an early age, having interests in climbing, skydiving etc.

After Bear left education with a bachelors degree in Hispanic studies he looked to the military.

He served as a British army reserve with 21 SAS as a trooper who as trained in unarmed combat, survival, climbing, parachuting and explosives.

His career in the arm, however, was cut short due to a parachuting accident that broke 3 of his vertebrae.

Perhaps a testament to his character, Bear climbed to the summit of Mout Everest just 18 months after his accident.

He went on to climb Ama Dablam, cross the Atlantic in an inflatable boat and break the world record for longest indoor free fall.

Bear began to make a name for himself, so much so he appeared on shows such as Friday Night With Johnson Ross, Tonight Show With Jay Leno and the Late Show With David Letterman.

Perhaps the big break Bear deserved was the arrival of Man vs Wild to our tv screens in 2006.

In each episode Bear is dropped into an ‘inhospitable’ destination and is left to his own devices, showing viewers how to survive.

The program was a big hit, lasting over 5 years with 7 episodes in all.

Since this point, Bear has had multiple shows on Tv including The Island, Mission Survive and Running Wild With Bear Grylls.

These have all achieved reasonable success and it looks like Bear will be giving us survival tips for many years to come!

Besides Tv shows, Bear has also worked as a motivational speaker and is what’s known as a chief scout (he was the youngest to become a chief scout at 34).
