Dave Salmoni from "Expedition Impossible" is the host of the ABC reality series.

Dave Salmoni wears many hats. He's an adventurer, a zoologist, a renowned animal trainer and a television host. Born and raised in Canada, he now splits his time between Toronto and South Africa, where he follows his passion for the outdoors by hosting and producing wildlife documentaries.

Salmoni's career began 10 years ago, when he embarked on a life changing adventure to Africa to train captive-bred Bengal tigers how to hunt and survive in the wild. To achieve this, he lived in a tent in the African bush for five years as he combined his trainer and zoology techniques. This process was documented and became Discovery Channel's "Living with Tigers." Following this experience, Salmoni's career has blossomed and allowed him to live the life he always dreamed of back in Canada. As a child, the only place he could stay out of trouble was in the wild, where there are no rules.

Salmoni has been to some of the most dangerous places on Earth for "World's Deadliest Towns." He was accepted into a wild pride of African Lions in "Into the Lion's Den," then followed that feat by living in a tent in the Namibian bush in order to save a pride of problem lions in "Into the Pride." He has traveled the world and experienced forgotten cultures on productions such as "Rogue Nature" and various Shark Week programs. The quintessential adventurer and not happy when confined to city life, Salmoni is constantly seeking his next exotic journey. Where most survivalists go to "survive," he goes on vacation.

In his down time, Salmoni likes to stay at his family's cottage in Ontario, which is surrounded by an abundance of wildlife. He's an avid outdoorsman, enjoys sports and construction projects.

Salmoni was named one of Cosmopolitan magazine's Fun and Fearless Males (2008) and was included as one of People's sexiest bachelors (2009).
