Bear Grylls has become known around the world as one of the most recognized faces of survival and outdoor adventure. Trained from an early age in martial arts, and taught to climb and sail by his father, Bear went on to spend three years as a soldier in the British Special Forces, serving with 21 SAS, before becoming one of the youngest-ever climbers of Mount Everest. Since then he has gone on to host more extreme-adventure TV shows across more global networks than anyone else in the world, including The Island with Bear Grylls for Channel 4, Bear Grylls' Survival School for ITV, Man vs. Wild for Discovery Channel, Running Wild with Bear Grylls for NBC and Survivor Games for Chinese TV. He is also a family man and a number-one bestselling author, with twenty-two books to his name, including his autobiography, Mud, Sweat and Tears, and the popular Mission Survival series for children. He also writes and performs the live-action stadium show Endeavour. Bear is an honorary Colonel to the Royal Marines Commandos, and the youngest-ever Chief Scout, an inspiration to forty million Scouts worldwide.
