Jeremy Wade Had Passions Of Fishing Since His Early Age
The presenter was born on 23 March 1956 as Jeremy John Wade in the Suffolk area of Ipswich. His parents, living off in the village area on a thatched house, were supportive of his early passion of catching fishes and letting him be himself, which led to the man he is today.
The Bristol University graduate in Zoology began his career as a secondary teacher in Kent.
The love for fishing, however, was planted into Jeremy's mind long before his graduation when he was a carefree child wandering casually among the banks of the Suffolk's Stour river.
Trip To India Bolstered His Career; Net Worth In Millions!
The love for fishing further cemented in his mind after his trip to India in 1982. Traveling at a low budget of about $250, he managed to stay in the country for about three months, hunting fishes in the great Ganges river. On his return to England, he published papers about his fishing experience in India. The documents, read by millions, earned him grants from various funding agencies which helped him continue his angling experience in newer exotic locations.
In 1992, based on his experiences of angling, he coauthored an angling book, Somewhere Down the Crazy River.
His career on TV began with Jungle Hooks a mini-series based around the great Amazon river. It was in the year 2009 that his TV career took off after hosting the first season of Animal Planet's River Monsters.
The show turned out to be a great hit among all the age groups and identified him to the world. However, the multilingual presenter's journey has not been all plain sailing as he has been mistaken for a spy, caught malaria, rammed by a substantial six-foot arapaima in the chest. But whatever the hurdles, Jeremy has never given up on angling.
Jeremy's journey to stardom has reflected much on his net worth too. The man, who started off his adventure at 26 years of age with $250 in hand, now enjoys the net worth of $2 million. What's more, the figure is growing every day due to the high salary he commands from the Animal Planet for his new show Mighty Rivers.
Wade currently hosts the Animal Planet documentary series Jeremy Wade's Mighty Rivers, which encompasses his investigation for the disappearance of freshwater giants from world's iconic rivers.
Giving Back To The Community
There's no doubt that Wade had it all he could from his career of excellence. The Ipswich-native is obviously not the one who would think about himself more than the community that gave him the fame he stands as today.
Moreover, he has been involved with the organization Make-A-Wish.
The idea to get involved came to him when Wade and his crew showed the ins and outs of a child(undisclosed) while creating the episodes of his interaction with different animals.
Called A Waster, Fishing Makes Up For The Lack Of Partner
It's not that the author of 2011 best selling book River Monsters: True Stories of the Ones that Didn't Get Away has not tried having a partner. As a young man, he once decided to settle down having a regular job and a girlfriend. However, that turned out to be a brief summer fling after his girlfriend labeled him a waster. The moment turned Jeremy's head and had never married after that.
His lack of relationship has seen him labeled a gay in various quarters. Whatever be the labels put on the star, he has remained unfazed. What's more, the actor wants him to be accepted as he is, not as a husband of someone.
Having already spent more than six decades of his life without a partner and finding delight at catching the real fish the TV persona is enjoying his singlehood without a wife figure.
For a man whose passions other than angling includes Scuba diving, Rock Climbing, and free diving; all outdoor activities. It is hard to see him being a homie settling down with wife and kids shortly.
