The king of adventure, Bear Grylls has become a worldwide name and is one of the most recognised faces of survival and outdoor adventure. Trained from a young age in the martial arts, Grylls went on to spend three years as a soldier in the British Special Forces, as part of 21 SAS Regiment.

He is the face of Running Wild with Bear Grylls, now in its 6th season, on National Geographic.
