Family and relationships
The family life of Jade Kindar-Martin is a wrapped one yet. He has not revealed much of his family added to a few occasions. His parents are from Vermont, USA, and he has got support from his family for his career. His brother is the first to mention this as he also assisted him in the AGT.
Jade Kindar-Martin married Karine Mauffrey in 2004. She was performing as a Cirque du Soleil performer and a stuntwoman. Among the things that belong to the Jade Kindar Martin couple, their wedding photo is a vital one. They both appeared on it on a cable as both were wire stuntmen.
Jophielle Love is their daughter who is always having an influence on the wire and walking stuff. She has acted in some TV episodes as well. He has more than two kids, who are 14,11, and 7, being a part of the wire walking family. According to Jade Kindar Martin’s words, his teachers had made a significant change to his life. He had been made the walk on a wire by one of his teachers at a summer camp as well.
What happened at AGT?
What Jade Kindar Martin tried to do was to walk on a 100m long 25m high cable without any life insurance, without safety lines, airbags, or any hidden safety measure. The cable was a 5 8-inch cable which is rarely used by the stuntman. Even if they do, they do this thing with safety cables. According to the presenter, it was an impossible task, and he couldn’t even walk when the wire was on the ground.
The judges asked about the security of Jade Kindar-Martin. He answered, “There is nothing behind the wire but me, my balance, pole, and my skill”. Although he had not used any security measures, he had added more risk factors by himself. He had added fire onto his walk, and it was more dangerous than it was. Flames just went off halfway stage, and then they flashed even bigger.
Another brave thing he did was to stand on the balance pole halfway stage. Literally, he started dancing on the tightrope. Everybody thought that it was completed when Jade Kindar Martin was on the other side. But he started cycling back to the other side. The most important thing was he took a frozen break from the halfway stage on the back to the other side.
According to Travis’s words, that could be the most difficult thing they have ever seen. “In a world where everything is built and oversold, you did not say this is the best, this is the biggest, or this is the greatest”. When it comes to Nikki’s words, “I mean you made it so unexpected I mean when you hit that first dance move. Yeah, it was just so entertaining but yet, at the same time, it was extreme. So yeah yeah.”
Probably one of the most dangerous acts we’ve seen throughout the whole season. “The act of yours is an unbelievable act to watch and a great execution throughout all of it. I would like to give you a first yes,” said Simon.
