Doug Forbis, 24, doesn't have legs but that hasn't stopped him being an all-round action man. Doug was born with the severest form of a very rare condition called sacral agenesis or caudal regression syndrome which means his spine didn't develop properly in the womb. Doug had his legs amputated as a baby and has learned to walk on his hands or use a wheelchair. Doug is a big advocate of wheelchair sports and is training to be a teacher for children with special needs. He also works as a volunteer to help able bodied teenagers understand what it's like to have a disability. He loves sport and claims his condition has never stopped him doing anything he wanted to do. He has a girlfriend, Elizabeth Tilden, 24, a highway patrol dispatcher, the pair plan to get married and move in together in the future.
