A bio for Steve-O (real name Stephen Glover) states he was “willing to do whatever it took to become famous,” even if it meant extreme physical pain.
After failing at University of Miami, he was a homeless couch surfer for three years before attending Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Clown College with the goal of furthering his goal of becoming a stuntman.
Since then, Steve-O has written a memoir, “Professional Idiot,” and established himself as a stand-up comedian. He has more than 24 million followers across social media platforms. He also has a weekly podcast titled “Steve-O’s Wild Ride!” He and his fiancée, Lux, are animal lovers and have plans to start their own animal sanctuary.
