Financial Standing, Movies and TV Shows
Steve-O is most widely recognized for his role in the TV and film series of Jackass where he and his friends perform ludicrous stunts on camera. His estimated net worth of 2.5 million dollars, mostly comes from his involvement in the cinema industry as a stunt person and actor. Most recently, Steve-O has been working as a touring comic and Youtube personality.
Speaking of his personality, Steve-O has the most eccentric of them all. He’s been known for doing the craziest things and getting just the right attention for it. Chief among them are the tattoos he has.
If you think you like tattoos, wait till you know how much Steve loves his tattoos. Most infamous amongst all of his tattoos are the words “your name”, boldly written on his right butt. He got the tattoo just so he can be able to say “I have your name tattooed on my ass”, to anyone.
Second to the infamous ‘your name on my ass’ tattoo is another of his face covering half of his back and saying “yeah dude, I rock!”. How much more egotistical can one person be right? But that’s just what makes him awesome and leaves his avid fans craving more.
Steve-O recently spent most of 2008 and early 2009 in rehab due to drug addiction. When he left Rehab, he became a vegan and has been dedicated to it to date. After that, he started touring in a comedy show. In September 2013, Steve-O launched a YouTube channel where he uploads stunts and prank-oriented videos and has since acquired over 2 million followers.
Steve-O has authored 3 books. In June 2011, Steve-O released an autobiography entitled Professional Idiot: A Memoir, co-written with David Peisner. Also in 2011, he published The Last Martyr. In 2003, he published a second book entitled The Rebel Yank.
With what he does and how he does it, you can be sure that Steve-O has come face to face with death on more than one occasion. But each time, he seems to always have a narrow escape. He once showcased the serious burns he sustained while doing a stunt and it was really severe.
In a video which he posted on his page, he revealed that the effects of the burns were still painful two months later, leaving legions of his fans worried about his wellbeing. Steve-O filmed a close-up of the grim blemishes starting with his hands and other parts of his body.
When you think crazy stunts, think Steve-O and be sure that no one does them better. Some of the most mind-blowing so far are:
