While performing in the flea market circus, Steve-O began sending videos of himself to Big Brother Magazine editor and future Jackass director Jeff Tremaine.
After admitting that the only thing he was scared of was spiders, Tremaine recruited Steve-O for MTV's television series Jackass, which became an instant hit.
Stephen Gilchrist Glover (born June 13, 1974), better known by his stage name Steve-O, is a British-American-Canadian stunt performer, comedian, animal-rights activist, and television personality.
His entertainment career is mostly centered on his performance stunts on the American TV series Jackass, its related movies, and its spin-off series Wildboyz. He has a number of tattoos, which he refers to as "dumb tattoos", including a "Your Name" written on his right buttock (in order to say "I got your name tattooed on my ass") and arguably his most memorable, a portrait of himself which covers half of his back and sports the words "yeah dude, I rock!
" He also lived in Darien, Connecticut, at the age of four, then Miami two years later. In 1987, Mötley Crüe was playing at Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto where his family was living at the time.
Steve-O likewise dated George Clooney's ex Elisabetta Canalis, but the two split because of the MTV star's former addiction issues.
