Todd Carmichael is the host of Travel Channel's reality series "Dangerous Grounds."

In 2008, Todd Carmichael — a real-life "Indiana Jones" — set the still-standing world-record for the fastest unsupported trek to the South Pole: thirty-nine days, seven hours and forty-nine minutes. In addition to being an avid adventurer, he is also a successful businessman. His premium coffee company, La Colombe Torrefaction, is based in Philadelphia and supplies top coffee roasts to the best restaurants and gourmet outlets in America. Since Carmichael focuses on the rarest coffee beans, his exclusive blends are sought after by many of the world's top chefs. Growing up on a farm in Washington, Carmichael can relate to the famers he buys from throughout the world. Because of this, he bypasses the distributor that typically takes advantage of the farmers, and pays a fair price directly to the source.

Carmichael is also an active humanitarian. His expedition to the South Pole raised a great deal of money for Orangutan Foundation International and he worked with the Clinton Global Initiative to raise considerable funds and awareness toward a coffee university in Haiti. He also developed a coffee blend with Leonardo DiCaprio, Lyon, of which 100 percent of the profits go to the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, funding wildlife protection, forest preservation, clean-water projects, disaster relief and climate-change research around the globe.
