An American hunter and survivalist, Glenn Villeneuve is best known as one of the beloved cast members of the TV series, Life Below Zero. He has impressed many through his hunting and survival skills. Besides wilderness and nature, he is an investor in real estate and the stock market.
Glenn Villeneuve was born on 18 August 1969, in Vermouth, USA. As a child, he grew up there and joined the high school at his early age. After a year, he dropped out without completing his education. Though he didn’t achieve school education, he became self-educated by reading, traveling, and interacting with interesting people.
Since his early age, he was close to nature and spends most of his time enjoying the scenes of forests and mountains. After years of wandering in the wilderness, in 1999, he visited Alaska. He was in love with the nature of Alaskan region, and kept traveling forth and back for a month. Later, he moved there permanently in 2000 to pursue his dream of living close to the wilderness.
He prefers wilderness lifestyle than the modern way of living. Preferring the simple life, he camped in a Brooks range lake-side, located in the remote mountains of arctic Alaska. The place is 200 miles north of Fairbanks, and 60 miles away from the nearest road. Also, he doesn’t mind being isolated from humans and has even lived without seeing human's face for as long as four months.
Cast of Life Below Zero
In 2013, Glenn started appearing on National Geographic Channel series, Life Below Zero when the producers of the show heard about him living in Fairbanks. Produced by BBC Worldwide, the show chronicles the daily and seasonal activities of subsistence hunters as they live a secluded life in the remote areas of Alaska.
The show depicts Glenn’s unconventional but simple lifestyle. He lives in the extreme cold in a one-room cabin with no running water supply. The only fuel for heating and cooking is the firewood that he acquires his ax and handsaw. Apart from this, he uses electricity only for his satellite phone, camera, and a headlamp.
He is a skilled hunter and fisherman and survives solely on the food that he derives from hunting. The fans of the show were impressed by his hunting and survival skills, but they also loved his emotional side. Despite feeling odd surrounded by camera all the time, he is also happy to share his experience and show other people the exquisite beauty and the wilderness of the remote valley.
Recently, he was also seen in the latest episode of Life Below Zero, where he encountered a dangerous animal while hunting a Dall sheep. Like many reality shows based on Alaska, Life Below Zero is also encircled by many controversies. Also, many criticisms have been made regarding the authenticity of the show as Alaska is not so shelter-friendly like the show depicts.
Apart from his hunting, he has been managing and investing in real estate and also has investments in the stock market. From the survival task and show, he has bagged up enormous net worth.
He is a married man!
Apart from the scheduled life, Glenn is also a family man. The 48-year-old is married to Trisha Kazan. Together, they share a daughter, Agatha Villeneuve, born in 2017.
He also has two other children from his first marriage. They are Wolf Song and Willow Leaves. Also, Trisha has a daughter, Amelia Atkins from her former husband. During the off-season, his family moves to Glenn's hometown. As of now, he lives together with his wife and daughter.
