Jeb Corliss is both a real life Megastar and your mentor on the Megastar App!
Meet Jeb Corliss, professional skydiver, BASE jumper, wingsuit pilot, and the latest celebrity judge in our worldwide Megastar competition.
Whether he’s diving from thousands of feet in the air to thread narrow caverns with only inches of clearance to spare, or swimming outside of a cage to pet Great White Sharks off the coast of Mexico, Jeb Corliss is a performance artist on the grand scale.
With every stunt he executes, he literally risks life and limb to do the unthinkable and defy the limits of fear. 😱
At a young age, Jeb knew that he wanted to do great things (or at least nothing more than simply defy gravity).
The story goes: Young Jeb was sitting in the backseat of his aunt’s car watching birds jump and glide from telephone pole to telephone pole. At that moment he told his aunt, “When I get older, I’m going to do that.” Despite his aunt’s explanation that humans can’t fly, he simply replied, “Maybe you can’t...but I’m going to.”
And fly he did! After all, this guy grew up capturing rattlesnakes 🐍 and poisonous spiders 🕷 which he kept as pets.
In his late teens, shortly after learning to SCUBA, Jeb discovered BASE jumping and at age 18 he started skydiving in preparation to become a BASE jumper.
After completed four years of BASE training, he made his first jump off a Northern California bridge, and has continued making leaps ever since.
Over his nearly twenty year career, Jeb has completed over 1,000 recorded jumps - from the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, to the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. He plans to fly along the Great Wall of China.
As if jumping off of extremely high places wasn’t hard enough, Jeb has added a new challenge to his repertoire! 😧☠ As a proximity flyer, Jeb pops helium balloons with his head at high speeds just feet away from colliding with walls and cliffsides.
He has been profiled by The New York Times, Men’s Journal, Rolling Stone and more. His many television appearances include Good Morning America, Today, The Colbert Report, ESPN’s E:60, and Conan. Jeb has also starred in several documentaries, and was the original host of Discovery Channel’s Stunt Junkies.
Now, Jeb stands as a reminder that Megastar is a platform where everyone can show their talent. The discerning eye of someone as dedicated, passionate, and talented as Jeb makes him the ideal judge to help us find the world’s next Megastar.
If you’re an extreme athlete or adventurist that has turned your talent into an unlikely performance, Jeb may just be your champion and mentor!
As a Megastar judge and mentor, Jeb hopes to encourage everyone to give themselves fully to their dreams –– whatever they may be:
“I have been very fortunate in my life and I have seen things many people wouldn’t believe. Now I want to help others see them too. I want to help inspire people to follow their passion and I feel Megastar can help me do this.”
