Bear Grylls (born 17 June 1976) is a British explorer and survivalist. He is featured in the Man vs Wild TV show series where, in each particular episode, he would have to survive in the woods, eating and drinking whatever edible stuff, even feces and his own urine. Although his actions may be taboo, he is a charitable man, and works include bringing disabled, disadvantaged, abused and neglected people on expeditions to let them have the chance to see the world.
