Bear Grylls – adventurer, mountaineer, Chief Scout and, um, barge owner…

That last one doesn’t exactly fit with his rugged image, but family is the centre of Bear’s life, and the barge is a big part of that life with his wife and kids.

Sure, he spent three years in the SAS – and while he was in the service had a free-falling parachuting accident where he broke his back in three places. And it’s true he was the youngest British climber to ever climb Mount Everest at 23 years of age – and climbed another mountain that Sir Edmund Hilary described as ‘unclimbable,’ a year earlier when he was 22.

Never mind that he’s a karate black belt, was the first person to paraglide over Everest, became the youngest ever Chief Scout and has also climbed a remote, previously unclimbed, mountain in Antarctica, the coldest place on earth, for the kids charity Global Angels.

Oh, and he was also in ‘Sure For Men’ advert as well…
