McGhehey was born and raised in Mcminnville Oregon, USA, to father Kenneth McGhehey and mother Linda McGhehey. He is the youngest of 3 children, in birth order, Lesley, Stacey, and Kenneth. After graduating from McMinnville High School in 1995, he became a professional snowboarder. He later retired from snowboarding due to breaking his neck and got a job at a skate shop in Portland. There he filmed some of his ideas and stunts on a small scale; he was soon spotted by Jackass director Jeff Tremaine, who put him on the Jackass team.[1]

McGhehey later appeared in all five Jackass films. Ehren's motto when performing stunts on Jackass was "Safety First." McGhehey is often referred to by his nickname "Danger Ehren" by fellow Jackass cast and crew, not least due to his tendency to injure himself/lose teeth in the pursuit of stunts. He's the butt of many jokes by the Jackass crew, most notably and one of Johnny Knoxville's favorites,[2] the infamous "Terror Taxi" in Jackass Number Two. In a stunt where Ehren played a terrorist passenger in a taxicab where he unknowingly wore a "pube beard" made up from the shaved pubic hair of his co-stars.[2]
