One-time Man vs. Wild host Bear Grylls never really stops being the adrenaline-seeking outdoorsman that made him popular on his Discovery Channel survival show.The former British Special forces member revealed this nugget in a recent interview with Vanity Fair:

To get away from it all, I go to . . .Our small, private island hideaway in Wales, U.K. It’s 20 acres and five miles offshore with no mains, electricity, or running water. It has a little lighthouse beside our house and is surrounded by amazing sea cliffs, seals, and dolphins. It is my favourite place on the planet!

The wildman’s autobiography, “Mud, Sweat, and Tears” is due out on May 1.
