Who Is River Monster's Jeremy Wade Dating? The Television Personality Is Notoriously Private
American wildlife documentary, River Monsters is one of the most viewed shows in both Animal Planet and Discovery Channel's history and the credit to its success goes to the host of the show, Jeremy Wade. He traveled to many parts of the world in search of the most fearsome freshwater killers.
Watching Wade on television since 2009, his personal life has always been overshadowed by his professional life. For a change let's focus on the relationship and affairs of the fearless biologist.
Is Television Personality Jeremy Wade Dating Anyone? Or Is He Married?
Jeremy Wade is quite private when it comes to his personal life. The 62-year-old River Monsters star hasn't introduced anyone as his girlfriend to date.
Also, as per his personal website, he is unmarried. Probably, Wade is still single at present.
It seems Wade is too busy with his adventures and maybe he feels more comfortable being single as he often travels.
Always looking for new adventure, Wade barely has time to meet his parents and maintain contact with them. It could be the very reason that he is avoiding getting involved in any affairs or relationship.
As per some sources, Wade once tried to settle down and get a job, however, he quit few weeks after his girlfriend broke his heart calling him a “Waster.”
The television personality once said in an interview:
“It’s all about being accepted for who I am. That goes for anybody, doesn’t it? To be accepted for who you are.”
“I’d prefer to be in some remote part of the world with not much in my pockets and not know what I’m going to be doing the next day.”
Well, it seems like Wade doesn't want to be bounded by marital obligations as he lives a non-materialistic life and being a husband and father is not his cup of tea. His topmost priority has been fishing since his childhood and has traveled most part of the world in search for the most mysterious fishes.
