Ed Stafford stars in Discovery Channel's reality docu-series "Naked Castaway."

Ed Stafford is the Guinness World Record-holding first man to walk the Amazon. He was European Adventurer of the Year 2011.

"On the 9th August 2010, Ed walked into the Guinness Book of Records after becoming the first man to walk the length of the Amazon River. Sir Ranulph Fiennes described his expedition as being "truly extraordinary… in the top league of expeditions past and present."

Ed filmed and blogged his deadly journey and engaged followers all over the world for 2 ½ years. His epic adventure made headline news and was featured in over 900 articles and on every major news channel in the UK and United States. Ed's mission was complete. His tale of true grit, bravery and determination to succeed against all odds has led to him being described by The Daily Mail as "Britain's most intrepid hero since Scott of the Antarctic," and "A true hero" by The Times.

Ed's footage was made into a Discovery Channel documentary and was sold to over 100 countries. His book, "Walking the Amazon," has been translated into Mandarin, Ukranian, Polish and Spanish as well as being sold in the USA.

Ed intends to use his adventures to inspire adults and kids alike to get off the settee and go outside. Ed was nominated as one of National Geographic's Adventurers of the year 2010 and in 2011 he was awarded the title of "European Adventurer of the Year" in Stockholm.
