    (June 7, 1974- )
    Born in Isle of Wight, United Kingdom
    Birth name is Edward Michael Grylls
    Served in the British Special Forces
    Hosts the Discovery Channel program Man vs. Wild (2006- )
    Wrote 'The Kid Who Climbed Everest' (1998) and 'Facing the Frozen Ocean' (2003)
    His claim to have set a new altitude record while paragliding (2007) was never ratified, since the altimeter froze during the flight making verification impossible.
    During 'Man vs. Wild,' he has wrapped his urine-soaked shirt around his head to stave off the desert heat, squeezed elephant dung to extract water, ripped off raw chunks of dead zebra with his teeth and drunk his own urine.
    Other survival experts have questioned the wisdom of the advice he gives on the show.
    Producers of 'Man vs. Wild' admitted that on at least two occasions, Grylls spent the night in hotels instead of roughing it.
    His military career ended when he fractured three vertebrae when a routine parachute exercise went wrong (1996).
    Only two years later, he fulfilled a childhood dream by climbing Mount Everest.
    He has used his expeditions and stunts to raise money for charities, including the Royal National Lifeboat Association, Global Angels, the Prince's Trust and Hope & Homes for Children.
    He received an honorary commission in the Royal Navy after leading the first unassisted crossing of the North Atlantic in an open rigid inflatable boat.
