Don Wildman is living the dream job. The man gets to travel to exotic locations and is getting paid to do so. The narrator is associated with several travel shows, including Weird Travels, Cities of Underworld, Off Limits, and Beyond the Unknown. From the dark hallways of catacombs to some of the most secured vaults in the world, Wildman’s adventures have taken him to places that common people do not even dream of entering. In a decade of travel, Wildman has always attempted to uncover the real truth of a place. He is currently associated with three different TV shows, Mysteries at the Museum, Monumental Mysteries and Greatest Mysteries.
Donald Frank Wildman was born on the 27th of March 1961 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Born into an academic household, Don spent much of his early life alongside his four sisters in Pitman, New Jersey. His father was a principal and Don was presumed to follow the same path. As opposed to his sisters who did follow the same path, Don had an immense thirst for acting. After matriculating from Westtown School, Don enrolled at Earlham College, in Richmond, Indiana. He graduated in 1979 and enrolled at a Drama Studio in London.
Upon his return to the USA, Don started working in theatre. He was featured in several plays including, Gross Indecency: The Three Trials of Oscar Wilde. While working in theatre, Don was also asked to work in several commercials. One thing led to another and Don was asked to host the travel show, Weird Travels. Don took the mantle of the host in 2003 which marks his first entry in the world of reality TV. In 2007, Don started working on a completely different series entitled, The Incurables. The series featured patients who suffered from serious problems of a psychological or physical nature. In the same year, Don simultaneously began working on another series, Cities of the Underworld (2007-2009).
The workload continued to increase for Don whose first big project was the documentary, Pompeii: Back from the Dead (2011). After presenting the series, Of Limits, for two years, Jon moved on with Mysteries at the Museum. The series wrapped up in 2019 after a 6-year run. Don is now actively working on the TV series, Beyond the Unknown. The series recently wrapped up its second season on the 24th of February, 2020.
Even though Don likes to keep his personal details under wraps, things tend to leak out. The reality star is married to the award-winning filmmaker, Melissa Haizlip. It remains unknown as to how and where the pair met and how they got married. The pair are yet to announce any new addition to the family and judging by the way Don’s career is going, it looks like things will stay that way for the foreseeable future.
One would think that Don gets tired of all that traveling and would do something in his free time. But nothing could be further from the truth. Even in his free time, Don loves to travel and is a huge fan of Scuba Diving. The man is currently enjoying a net worth of USD 500,000 which is sure to increase.
