Grant Imahara, co-host of Mythbusters died suddenly following a brain aneurysm as learned byThe Hollywood Reporter in a statement made late Monday night. This story, however is developing and we will update as information comes in.
I think it's time for 2020 to take a break and let us heal because this is getting to be too much.
In a statement from Discovery, "We are heartbroken to hear this sad news about Grant. He was an important part of our Discovery family and a really wonderful man. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family". Imahara joined the incredibly fun and educational Discovery show Mythbusters' 3rd season in 2005, and parted in 2014 with co-hosts Kari Byron and Toy Belleci in 2014. The three would go on to reunite in 2016 for Netfix's White Rabbit Project which only lasted for one season. Mythbusters co-host Adam Savage tweeted the following late on July 13th:
I don't know about you, but Mythbusters was and still is a show I could watch for hours on end without ever tiring no matter how many times I've seen the episode. This troupe made science cool again in the 21st century like Bill Nye in my childhood. This is a tough one to stomach. Raise your beaker of sulfuric acid and pour one out for Grant.
