Swimming in cold, deadly water, jumping off helicopters and eating disgusting things like bugs and raw animals, are some of the unusual challenges that are faced by the fearless Edward Michael Grylls also known as…. Bear Grylls! He also has an exciting TV show called: Man VS Wild. This biography is about the amazing things that Bear Grylls does and all about him.
Bear Grylls was born on the 7th June 1974 in Donaghadee, Northern Ireland. A few years later, he went to Birkbeck high school (which opened in 1964) and is now called Somercotes Academy. Because Bear is so lucky, he went to college in the famous, yet old, Eton college (which opened in 1440). He also went to the University of London (which opened in 1836).
Bear Grylls’ mother (Lady Sarah Grylls) was born on the 5th April 1921 in Donaghadee. His father (Sir Michael Grylls) was born on the 21st February 1934 in Folkestone. When Bear was only a week old, his older sister (Lara Fawcett) gave him the nickname ‘Bear’ instead of his real name.
Bear, who has a big family, has a wonderful wife named Shara Cannings Knight and they have three children: Jesse Grylls, Marmaduke Grylls and Huckleberry Grylls. Bear married Shara in 2000. In a short length of time, their first child was born in 2003. His other children however, were born in 2006 and 2009.
It has been a tricky life for Bear. He used to be a chief scout and a motivational speaker. He is now an adventurer, an author and a TV presenter. Bear Grylls is ridiculous, ridiculous because he jumps off helicopters into dangerous surroundings not knowing what is about to pounce out to get him. Bear Grylls started his first TV show, a Escape to the Legion, in 2005. He is also a Christian and believes in God.
I’m sure you will agree that Bear Grylls is an amazing person. He has done so many fabulous things in his life, what is he going to do next?
