Glenn Villeneuve: Family Man and Extreme Survival Expert

How he earned his millions, survived Alaskan bears and raised a family in the wilderness

Life Below Zero‘s Glenn Villeneuve

Glenn Villeneuve is one of the main stars in the BBC National Geographic show Life Below Zero, alongside Chip Hailstone and Agnes Hailstone (awesome names for the outdoors, wilderness family). Life Below Zero is a reality television series that documents the everyday lives of people who live under extreme seasonal conditions in the Alaskan region. Originally from Burlington in Vermont, Glenn Villeneuve moved to Chandalar in Alaska in 1999. He lived alone in the cold searing temperatures, a couple of miles north of the Arctic Circle.

In the show, it has been well documented how Glenn enjoys his nomadic and solitary life. However, in a particular series of episodes, Glenn demonstrated another side to his character, bringing his children and partner with him, from Fairbanks to his cabin in the Brooks Range. Together with his partner Trisha,  his blended family of three children, of differing ethnicity, won the hearts of viewers.

Glenn is a caring, but introverted, man, who helped to raise and care for his family under the extreme weather conditions of Alaska. The temperature in the Brooks Range is 22 degrees below zero for half of the year. Whereas before, Glenn would spend those months by his solitary lonesome, he now has his beloved family.

Glenn loves nature more than any comfort a more predictable, urban life can offer.


How did Glenn Villeneuve die?

Although Glenn enjoyed the unpredictable life that the Alaskan region offered, there were many times where Glenn’s life would be endangered. Once, while building his abode, Glenn had to sleep in a tent, not knowing there was a pack of wolves lurking outside. He survived not only attacks from wolves but also from a grizzly bear and a wolverine. However, he continues to live and hunt in Alaska, thanks to his inherent survival instincts.
