Steve-O Backflips Into River In Austria
Steve-O spent the past several weeks taking part in a celebrity winter games competition in Austria.
Steve O participated in the second season of the British reality series The Jump, in which celebrities try to master various winter sports including bobsleigh, speed skating, ski cross and giant slalom. A live show is presented every night as the contestants compete in a different winter event in order to be crowned champion of the season. The show also brings in professional star athletes to compete against the other more novice cast members, this season included Rugby star Mike Tindall (husband to Zara Phillips, daughter of Anne, Princess Royal of England) and Paralympic cyclist Jon-Allan Butterworth.
While not practicing, Steve-O took sometime to revert back to his old roots as he jumped into the freezing cold river in Inns, Austria, as part of a stunt. He was not injured but he did shock spectators.
Though Steve-O had no formal training before the show in winter sports, he was the 9th celebrity eliminated which had him narrowly missing out on the final, in which TOWIE star Joey Essex earned the top spot. Since being eliminated from the show, Steve-O is enjoying his time off as he gears up for a stand-up tour that will start this month in California.
