What The Hell Happened To Felix Baumgartner?

It's been two years since Red Bull Stratos, but what has 'Fearless Felix' been getting up to?

It’s been two years since Felix Baumgartner broke the sound barrier and the internet with his gargantuan leap from the stratosphere.

The Austrian daredevil dubbed ‘Fearless Felix’ flew an estimated 24 miles back down to earth, and he holds several other world records as well as those set from space – but we’ve not heard an awful lot about him since that fateful day in October 2012.

We asked the internet what Felix has been up to since he returned home from Red Bull Stratos… And the results were not exactly what we were expecting:
