Grant Imahara to Be Honored With ‘Mythbusters’ Marathons on Discovery, Science Channel

Longtime host died earlier this week of a brain aneurysm at 49

Discovery has lined-up two days of “Mythbusters” episodes to air across two networks in tribute to host Grant Imahara, who died earlier this week of a brain aneurysm at the age of 49.

Imahara was part of the “Mythbusters” team for nearly 10 years, working alongside lead hosts Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman and his Build Team cohorts Kari Byron and Tori Belleci. They put popular myths to the test using science and engineering. The episodes airing on Discovery and Science Channel this Friday and Saturday will feature some of Imahara’s favorite “Mythbusters” moments, the network said.

Discovery will also re-air Imahara’s turn as host of “Killer Robots: Robo Games 2011,” which documented the International Robogames Competition, as well as an episode of his Netflix series “White Rabbit Project,” which he co-hosted with Byron and Belleci.
