He'll be fine. Way too much research, technology and money in it.

What's the point of the jump? Not being a dick, I genuinely don't know what it's supposed to accomplish/prove/test.

Pretty easy to build a delay into the feed. With corp sponsors picking up the bill, they'll make sure the content is controlled.

He's going to break four records. I think they've been standing for 50 years.

A little history lesson:

This was one of the original proposed methods of emergency escape for the Mercury space program, but NASA thought it was to difficult to test and didn't pursue it. From orbit, technically you could use an inflatable heat shield, then jettison and freefall if this works.

That being said, I think this guy is trying it just to break the record. Captain Kirk said it best while climbing El Capitan: "Why do you climb a mountain? Because its there."
