Just stop trying.
When he gained a second-dan black belt in Karate. As a teenager.
When he had a mud bath.
When he went to a James Bond premiere, wearing these trousers.
When he served in the SAS for three years.
When he joked about Brokeback Mountain in a cave with Jake Gyllenhaal.
So manly that Jake was wowed by his headwear.
When he broke his back during a freefall parachuting accident, and then climbed Mount Everest 18 months later.
Making him one of the youngest Britons to complete the climb.
And to prepare for the Everest mission, Grylls climbed Ama Dablam, a peak previously described as 'unclimbable'.
When he ate this larva, and looked you in the eye while doing it.
When he gave an interview about how much he loves bubble baths.
When he circumnavigated the British Isles on a jetski. For charity.
When he did an ad that was basically about him climbing Everest.
When he had his own range of survival knives.
When he built a bathtub and rowed naked down the Thames. To raise money for a wounded friend.
And when he crossed the North Atlantic in an inflatable boat.
When he stood in the snow with blood on his face.
When he became the youngest ever Chief Scout after Baden-Powell.
When he took a medical view on heartache.
When he owned his own island off the coast of Scotland.
And when he tweeted this.
