Born survivor, Man Vs Wild star Bear Grylls can do what no man has done before – whatever that may be!
Bear always dreamt of climbing Everest, but only 30 Brits have achieved this feat, and with the death of one climber for every six that reaches the peak and makes it back alive, the odd were against him. And that was before he broke his back in three places.
The ascent took ninety days through extreme weather conditions, minimal sleep and Oxygen deprivation in the upper regions of the ‘death zone’ (above 26,000 feet). On May 26th, 1998 at 07.22am, at just 23 years old, Bear Grylls entered The Guinness Book of Records as The Youngest Briton to climb Mount Everest.
His first major Channel 4 Series, ‘Escape to the Legion', saw him simulating basic training with Legionaires in North Africa. Bear was then commissioned to present 'Man Vs Wild' on the Discovery Channel Worldwide, and 'Born Survivor: Bear Grylls', went on to become the No. 1 cable show in the US. The accompanying book 'Born Survivor' spent 10 weeks on the Sunday Times Bestseller List.
