Daredevils come in all shapes and sizes. But it ain’t the size of the devil in the dare, it’s the size of the dare in the devil. Here’s the Top 10 Real Deal Daredevils counted down from ten to one.
10. DREW DRECHSEL, AMERICAN NINJA WARRIOR
This dudes a stud. Seven-time Ninja Warrior appearances later, this real life ninja is as daring as them come.
9. SHAUN WHITE
White hot more like it. Olympic gold medalist and X-games champ, the stuff he does on a board, that high in the air, makes him a stud-devil.
8. JOHNNY KNOXVILLE, JACKASS
Fish hook in his mouth, matchbox car in his butt, all while not having insurance. That is straight up ballsy.
7. STEVE IRWIN
Crikey! Wrestling crocodiles, handling deadly snakes, and swimming in shark infested waters. Irwin did it all before he left us all wanting more. RIP.
6. JACKIE CHAN
As the holder of the “Most Stunts by a Living Actor” in the Guinness record book, Jackie is more than just an actor. Fracturing your skull after falling from a tree gives you legit daredevil status.
5. DAVID BLAINE
Just a magician? Electrified, Bullet Catch, Drowned Alive, Buried Alive, and Frozen in Time are just a few of his infamous “tricks.”
4. HARRY HOUIDINI
The literal creator of the “get out of jail free card”, Houdini is the OG daredevil. Pulling off escape acts and high risk stunts in the early 1900’s? Yeah that’s daring to say the least.
3. LEE HOY
MMA fighting is not for the weak. MMA fighting while blind, and crushing dudes in the process, that is straight up baller status.
2. SEAL TEAM SIX- ALL OF THEM
When you go on a mission to seek out the Most Wanted man in the world, you have to have a few extra “amps” in your blood, ya know? These dudes are straight up daredevil bad a$$es!
1. EVEL KNEIVAL
This legend attempted over 75 ramp-to-ramp jumps on his motorcycle. With 433 bone fractures later he goes down as the man who would jump over things most of us avoid even googling.
HONORABLE MENTION: TIGER WOODS
Look when you put your putter in over 100 chicks that could be consider "rolling the dice on life". To put your wood out there like that, Mr. Woods - that’s nuts.
