Adam Savage And Jamie Hyneman
Savage and Hyneman portray the two army-junk sellers in The Darwin Awards. They both appear during the story of the rocket-car, which they partially reproduced in the MythBusters series’ pilot episode and have retested two more times.
In 2006, Hyneman attended the annual skeptics’ conference called The Amazing Meeting. He made a cameo appearance along with Savage on CSI: Crime Scene Investigation on the May 1, 2008, episode The Theory of Everything, where they play inspectors each giving thumbs-up after seeing a shirt soaked in pepper spray catch fire when shot by a taser.
The two went on to test this myth on MythBusters and declare it confirmed with certain types of pepper spray. Hyneman and MythBusters co-host Savage appear as judges on the game show Unchained Reaction, which premiered in March 2012.
Hyneman and Adam Savage have also voiced characters on The Simpsons episode “The Daughter Also Rises”, and the “MythCrackers”, which prompts Bart and Milhouse to experiment in a similar fashion. They then reference this episode during the MythBusters Simpsons special.
Both Hyneman and Savage also voiced stormtroopers like office workers in the Phineas and Ferb Star Wars special. Until 2016 Hyneman and Adam Savage were was editors and contributors at Tested.com, and technology reviewer Norman Chan.
Jamie Hyneman MythBusters
He is a main cast member on MythBusters, alongside Adam Savage. MythBusters is an Australian-American science entertainment television program. The show is hosted by special effects experts Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman. Adam Savage And Jamie Hyneman use elements of the scientific method to test the validity of rumors, movie scenes, myths, Internet videos, adages, and news stories.
Hyneman is often exasperated by Savage’s antics and sometimes argues with him about the best approach to take. The two often have very different ideas for performing experiments and building devices. Hyneman’s ideas tend to be more simplified than his co-host’s, and he has a philosophy of reducing a solution to its most basic form wherever possible. This difference has led to numerous competitions between the two presenters when testing myths, such as testing the Goldfish Memory myth and Hoverboard myth.
