"Mythbusters: The Search"
Finale Saturday, February 25 at 9PM ET on Science Channel
 
          In a LIVE broadcast of Science Channel’s “MYTHBUSTERS: THE SEARCH” on Saturday, February 25 at 9pm ET, the next generation of Mythbusters will be revealed. Throughout the season, the final four contenders have all earned the right to be called Mythbusters, displaying killer myth-busting build skills, science smarts and remarkable nerves. Unfortunately, not all of them will walk away as Mythbusters. The finale, featuring host and Nerdist science editor Kyle Hill, will originate from Jersey City’s Liberty Science Center.

 
 
          “MYTHBUSTERS: THE SEARCH,” premiered in January, starting off with ten contestants tasked with testing out everyday myths. The myths ran the gamut from whether it’s possible to find a needle in a haystack, to finding out if deflating footballs makes them easier to catch, to seeing if one can paint a room with explosives. The field is now whittled down to four, whose final myth-busting project, water heater jail break, is designed to see if a water heater could be used as a rocket to escape from prison.

The final four are:
Myth Busters
Martin Pepper of Tucson, Arizona, a tinkerer and inventor with degrees in geology, ecology and psychology.
Myth Busters: The Search
Brian Louden of Spring, Texas, a certified rescue diver, pilot, and drone enthusiast with impressive build skills.
Myth Busters: The Search
Jonathan Lung of Staten Island, NY, a product designer, who always finds a way to build with his hands, whether it is designing and building furniture, or generating concepts and prototypes.
Myth Busters: The Search
Tamara Robertson of Los Angeles, an engineer, who grew up in Eastern, North Carolina watching a lot of Star Trek with her father, who also fostered Tamara’s love of machinery as well all things technical.
