Dave England is a guy who likes taking risks. This took him towards achieving success as a professional stunt man and professional snowboarder.
We can say with certainty Dave is a daredevil who can take your breath away in seconds. Adrenaline pumping jobs are his biggest passion, but we don’t blame him, as he truly has the talent to perform the riskiest and the most challenging ventures.
On the other side, if you ever watched a single episode of Jackass, you already know Dave can get very nasty sometimes. This guy wanted to make something in life – and he didn’t ask for the price.
We must tell you to prepare your stomach and have a glass of water right beside you, as what you are about to read is going to make you sick for real. Still, there are some things worth admiring when it comes to Dave England.
Today we are revealing more about Dave’s career development, as well as aspects of his private life, and his net worth.
Dave England was born on December 30, 1969, in Ventura, California, which means he is 50 years old now.
He was brought up in a middle-class American family and holds an American nationality.
If you are wondering where from Dave’s adrenaline thirst comes from, we will tell you right away.
His father was a stunt man, and it would be completely logical Dave looked up upon him.
Dave’s dad did numerous body doubles in many Hollywood movies and for various actors. This all inspired Dave to take the risk and be up for the challenge no matter of the time.
Being close to his father, Dave was open for new ideas, which brought him more experience. He admits he had a fear of losing or being unsuccessful, but his dad helped him overcome this phase.
Once he got rid of mental obstacles, Dave got into the incredible world of snowboarding and adrenaline.
Starting his journey from his early years, Dave England knew his job would bring many risks and potentially life-threatening situations. Yet, he wanted to follow his gut.
As a professional snowboarder, he was hired to promote different products, as well as digital products, such as Bulletproof and Back in Black, videos launched by Kingpin Productions’.
Going further and finding inspiration, Dave founded Skintight Magazine, a snowboarding magazine read by many.
Also, as an ex snowboarder, Dave wrote for one of the snowboarding magazines under the same name – Snowboard Magazine.
Then, he got the chance to get hired as an editor of Blunt magazine (also related to snowboarding and in the close connection with Big Brother).
Besides that, he was promoted in some magazines of great reputation, such as Big Brother and Blunt.
As it usually goes, film producers are crazy over daredevils, and Dave gave himself the chance to appear in a couple of movies – Tom Green, Shred, Revenge of the Boarding School Dropouts, etc.
Shred is a comedy film from 2008, directed by David Mitchell, while two main characters are Tom Green and Dave England.
The story of the movie follows Dave England (Max Fischer) and Jason Bothe (Eddy the Yeti) are two washed up snowboarders who come up with the idea of starting their own camp for snowboarders.
Of course, there is an idea of achieving fantastic growth and money through this.
In order to make their dream come true, Max and Eddy the Yeti are trying to develop their strategy when they run to a group of young snowboarders.
They join them, and all head to a major event at one of the resorts, where the story actually begins. At the party, Max Fisher and Eddy, the Yeti face Kinsley Brown (a character played by Tom Green).
You already get it – Kinsley Brown is the number 1 enemy of this team, and he works in a big corporation.
Kingsley is not alone in this game, as his right hand, Sphinx, played by Shane Meier, is helping him destroy Max’s and Eddie’s plans at all costs.
What do you think? Did Max and Eddie achieve their goal at the end of the movie?
There was a snowboarding school located in Canada, at Big White ski resort, where Dave got the chance to talk more about snowboarding and certain tricks this profession brings.
However, what we know Dave England most for is his involvement in Jackass, the American Reality Comedy Television.
Dave’s engagement in Jackass and numerous stunts and pranks brought him enormous fame.
However, even though Dave became familiar to the world through the show, he did some pretty disgusting things on the show as well.
Prepare yourself – this won’t be pleasant at all.
Dave mixed a couple of ingredients of which you would prepare an omelet, but all those ingredients were RAW!
Next, his goal was to cause sickness in his stomach and throw up. To do so, Dave drank an egg mixture, and guess what? He did throw up, which is already awful. Yet, this is not the end, as what goes next is so nasty you wouldn’t believe it.
Once he threw up, Dave took the content, and turned it into an omelet – and ATE IT.
We guess this is one of the worst things you have ever heard, but Dave managed to achieve fame through some not-that-smart ideas, like this one. Yet, there is more, unfortunately.
Seems like Dave was the only teammate who was involved in so many disgusting things – even fecal matters. He claimed himself as the first profession pooper in the world.
There is one more disgusting skit Dave is famous for, and it is called Poo Diaper. It is so awful it almost didn’t make to be released to the TV.
In this skit, Dave is reaching right to the garbage can. Then, he finds a baby diaper in there and takes it to eat it out. We will tell you the chocolate pudding is in the diaper as well.
Dave is eager to do anything in this world, as long as he gets paid to do that on TV.
What is more, he has no issues to talk about it either, as he finds pretty much anything to do on command, and takes it as his professional side.
Dickhouse produced the movie, while Spike Jonze, Jeff Tremaine, and Dave’s great friend Johnny Knoxville were its creators.
Knoxville once said he believed Dave would be the first man out of the whole Jackass team to die during a stunt. Luckily, he was wrong.
Dave appeared in three seasons from 2000 until 2001, during which period he was active the most.
Even though the audience went crazy over Dave, one thing brought him to the peak of all news.
While filming a shoot of Jackass, there was an accident, in which Dave lost one of his testicles.
Because of this accident, some people started guessing if Dave hurt himself anytime again after losing his testicle.
What is more, there were rumors Dave lost his leg at the set, even though this had nothing to do with the truth.
In one of his interviews, when the question related to safety came to the table, Dave replied that sometimes it looks much better on the screen when he is all natural and expresses himself the way he feels at the moment.
If you can’t believe this actually happened, then ask someone who watched Jackass Number Two, as there was a scene that is deleted now, proving Dave truly had an accident in which he lost his testicle.
Attaching a leech to scrotum was definitely a very wrong idea. During his career, Dave was nominated for many awards and won a few.
For example, he was awarded the first time in 2007, at Arby’s Action Sports, and the second time in 2014, when Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards went to his hands. As Dave achieved world fame, he amassed great capital as well.
Besides his engagement in Jackass, Dave can thank Made in Hollywood, Loiter Squad, and Bam’s Unholy Union for making a serious sum of money.
His net worth varies around $2.5 million currently, even though there are no data about the average salary of a stuntman.
Dave England indeed is one of the most talented professional stuntmen and professional snowboarders in the world.
He has been ruling the scene for more than 15 years now, and he still has a lot of his talent to share with the audience.
Dave is active on social media such as Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
The number of his Instagram followers exceeded 340,000, while almost the same number of people follow him on Facebook.
Dave is married to Johanna England, and the couple has been together for more than 18 years.
Even though there is no information when Dave and Johanna tied the knots, it is very well known they have four children.
Their first child was born in 2001 (a daughter named Ruby). Then, they welcomed Roan, their first son in 2004.
In September 2012, Dave and Johanna got their second sin and their third child, Clyde, while the happy couple welcomed one more kid according to Dave’s Twitter status.
Van Alexander England is the fourth child in the family, and Dave and Johanna don’t have plans on having more kids.
There were never any rumors about divorcing or cheating scandals, as Dave and Johanna are very devoted to family life, and are living in a happy community.
Now that we mentioned Dave lost one of his testicles while on the set, he was a bit afraid he wouldn’t be able to have more kids. However, this experience taught Dave an important lesson.
Even though he loves his job so much, this was a clear sign he should be more cautious when shooting.
His life is sometimes truly under the risk, and he can’t be selfish at all, regarding the fact he has four kids and a lovely wife.
Some rumors claimed Dave England was gay, but this, definitely, has nothing to do with the real life.
