Steve-O (born Steven Gilchrist Glover on 13 June, 1974 in London) was a member of the cast of MTV's Jackass, and is currently seen in the TV show Wildboyz.

Steve graduated from Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Clown College in 1997. However, he was not one of the ten chosen to join the circus. He then went home to Albuquerque to film himself doing stunts for skateboard videos, later becoming involved in Jackass and Jackass: The Movie.

After Jackass Steve released a number of DVDs showcasing his stunts. The first, Don't Try This At Home: The Steve-O Video, was simply a ragtag collection of footage that couldn't be played on TV. His second DVD, Volume 2: The Tour, follows him on his journey aross America performing his live stage show, Don't Try This at Home. Volume 3: Out On Bail, follows Steve and his crew across the globe on the Don't Try This At Home Tour.

In August 2002, Steve was arrested for performing his now infamous stunt, "The Butterfly", in which he staples his scrotum to his leg. Steve-O has also been arrested for various other crimes, mostly for drug possession.

Steve-O has the phrase "Yeah, dude! I rock! -Steve-O" and a larger-than-life portrait of himself with two thumbs up tattooed on his back.
