Since then he has gone on to host more extremeadventure TV shows across more global networks than anyone else in the world, including The Island with Bear Grylls for Channel 4, Bear Grylls' Survival School for ITV, Man vs. Wild for Discovery Channel, Running Wild with Bear Grylls for NBC and Survivor Games for Chinese TV. He is also a family man and a number-one bestselling author, with twenty-two books to his name, including his autobiography, Mud, Sweat and Tears, and the popular Mission Survival series for children.

Bear is an honorary Colonel to the Royal Marines Commandos, and the youngest-ever Chief Scout, an inspiration to forty million Scouts worldwide.
