All of us are familiar with Bear Grylls. He is a prominent figure in the world of outdoor adventures and survival.
He was trained in martial arts from a very young age and had spent three years as a soldier in the British Special Forces.
It was here that he acquired and perfected his survival skills that people all over the world enjoy.
Bear Grylls was one man who could never be disheartened.
Despite having several accidents that even lead to him breaking his back, he went on to become one of the youngest people to reach the summit of Mount Everest.
His TV series Man v/s Wild became one of the most-watched shows on the planet, reaching an estimated 1.2 billion viewers.
It was a survival show where he was always dropped in hostile conditions and he had to survive by eating and drinking whatever he could find; which could be wild animals and sometimes is own urine.
After years of hosting the show which was aired on Discovery Channel, he got fired by them over contractual disputes and as a result, the show was canceled.
