SCIENCE CHANNEL CROWNS NEW MYTHBUSTERS DURING LIVE BROADCAST OF "MYTHBUSTERS: THE SEARCH"

JONATHAN LUNG AND BRIAN LOUDEN OUTLAST COMPETITION TO BECOME OFFICIAL MYTHBUSTERS

(NEW YORK) -There are two new Mythbusters in town. In the finale of Science Channel's MYTHBUSTERS: THE SEARCH, it was revealed that certified rescue diver, pilot and drone enthusiast Brian Louden of Spring, Texas, and Jonathan Lung, a product designer from Staten Island, NY, have become official Mythbusters. The announcement was broadcast during the live finale of MYTHBUSTERS: THE SEARCH on Saturday night from the Liberty Science Center in Jersey City, New Jersey.

The final myth that the four finalists were tasked with executing, water heater jail break, was designed to see if it's possible to escape prison riding a rocket-propelled water heater.

"The competition was stiff and the myth-busting all season has been mind-blowing. In the end though, there could only be two winners," said Marc Etkind, General Manager of Science Channel. "They have big shoes to fill, but our new Mythbusters have proven themselves capable of carrying the torch with an impressive combination of build-skills, creativity and personality."

MYTHBUSTERS: THE SEARCH, which debuted in January, began 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.

MythBusters made its television debut on Discovery Channel in 2003 and ended its fourteen year run on the network last year. The series earned eight consecutive Emmy nominations for Outstanding Reality Program from 2009-2016 and was produced by Beyond Productions in San Francisco. The program fused scientific method with gleeful curiosity and plain old-fashioned ingenuity to create a signature style of explosive experimentation.

MYTHBUSTERS: THE SEARCH is produced for Science Channel by Beyond Productions. Dan Tapster and John Luscombe are executive producers. For Science Channel, Wyatt Channell is executive producer with Lindsey Foster Blumberg as producer.
