Discovery channel is at the very top when it comes to the game of infotainment. The channel has been responsible for some of the biggest shows that have come out of television in recent memory. River Monster is one such show that was hugely beneficial in promoting the channel. And the person behind it is none other than Discovery’s own Jeremy Wade.
The 63-year-old is best known for his work in hit television series that include the likes of Jungle Hooks, Dark Waters, River Monsters as well as Mighty Rivers. He is a television presenter who does way more than just present. He has come face to face with some of the biggest dangers that the river throws at him. Jeremy has faced near-death experiences more times than he can count.
The television icon completed his PhD. in Zoology from the Bristol University in England. He has always had a passion for animals and that can be seen through his television performances. He regards most of the animals that he comes across to be absolutely exquisite.
Without any doubt, the biggest show that he has ever been a part of is River Monsters. A show which tries to bring sea life and humans as close as possible. Jeremy also happens to be fluent in several languages including Portuguese and French.
He nearly escaped death once when he was a part of a plane crash which almost took his life. The plane crash was named Malaria and he was one of the few lucky survivors of the incident. Besides being a television presenter he is also an author as well as a philanthropist. He has written several books in the past. The most notable of them being Angling and Biologist.

This may come as a surprise to everyone but this 63-year-old television presenter has never been married. He considers his career to be his wife and it’s because of his unconditional love towards animals that he has never been married.
