DESCRIPTION: (from National Geographic Channel's press release, March 2014) One of the world's strongest umbrellas faces off against a hurricane-strength wind turbine. An impenetrable safe tries to withstand a beating from a two-story pneumatic jackhammer. A supersized fire truck battles the heat from a 3,500-degree flamethrower. In the arena of innovation, this is the ultimate test. Inventors and entrepreneurs stand tall behind their products and put their reputations at stake. But what happens when the indestructible is put in a death match with the destructor? On Friday, April 4, at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT, National Geographic Channel enters a battle royale, pitting entrepreneurs and their innovations against each other in Showdown of the Unbeatables. Television personalities Brian Unger ( @IAmBrianUnger - "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia," "The Daily Show") and Zane Lamprey ( @zanelamprey - "Three Sheets"; "Have Fork, Will Travel") align themselves with opposing companies that are readying for battle with their prized products. In each showdown, only one will walk away victorious.
