What Is Bear Grylls' Net Worth In 2022?

Edward Michael Grylls aka Bear Grylls is possibly one the most famous TV personalities in the world. He's known for his gruelling and adventurous exploits on shows such as ‘Man vs Wild.’ 

His television career is just the tip of the iceberg, as the 48-year-old was part of the SAS from 1994-97. He’s also become a distinguished author with multiple best sellers. So, with such a vast range of achievements, how much is the adventurer worth?

What Is Bear Grylls' Net Worth?

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Bear Grylls has accumulated a net worth of $25 million (£20.5 million). This extensive figure is hardly surprising given the scale of his accomplishments. Just looking at the show ‘Man vs Wild,’ it had 1.2 billion viewers and it is estimated that Grylls earned around $30,000 (£24,600) per episode. That’s certainly not everything on the television front, as his other hit show ‘Running Wild’ has seen the appearances of some of the most famous celebrities, such as Barack Obama, Kate Winslet, and Michael B. Jordan.

Bear was always adventurous as a child. Growing up on the Isle of Wight, he learned to climb and sail from a young age, he was even a member of the esteemed Royal Yacht Squadron. 

When he was 13 he headed off to Eton, where he founded the school's first mountaineering club. After leaving school and graduating from uni, he joined the SAS, where he became the youngest person ever to climb Mount Everest, at only 23 years old. In 2000, Bear married Shara Cannings Knight, and they have since had three sons named Marmaduke, Huckleberry, and Jesse. 

You can find all this information in Bear Grylls’ best-selling autobiography, ‘Mud, Sweat, and Tears,’ which spent fifteen weeks at Number 1 on the Sunday Times bestseller and has sold over nineteen million copies worldwide. In 2012, the book was even voted the most influential book in China!

What Has Bear Grylls Done With All His Earnings?

Regarding cars, it is no surprise that the adventurer has a wide range of 4x4s in his garage, including a Land Rover Defender, a Lincoln Navigator, and a Land Rover Discovery. The 48-year-old is currently living with his family on a remote island off the coast of North Wales, you can’t get any closer to nature than that!
