Daredevil Nik Wallenda — whose hobbies include ignoring physics, laughing in Death’s face, etc; — is already plotting his next move.
Roughly 12 hours after Sunday’s Discovery Channel special, which found Wallenda tightrope-walking (blindfolded!) between two Chicago skyscrapers (so windy!), he appeared on NBC’s Today show to reveal his next gravity defying, ratings-inducing act.
“I’m working on recreating my great-grandfather’s greatest walk, which was over Tallulah Gorge, Georgia … 600 feet high, 1,000 feet long,” Wallenda announced. “He did two headstands on the wire. I’ve never done a headstand on the wire in public, and I’m training for that.”
Wallenda’s great-grandfather Karl was a member of the Flying Wallendas. He fell to his death at the age of 73 during a tightrope attempt in Puerto Rico.
