‘MythBusters’ Reboot is Now Casting NEW TV Hosts


The Science Channel is bringing back Mythbusters and producers are now casting new TV hosts.

According to The Hollywood Reporter the Science Channel is rebooting MythBusters but, this time around they are searching for an “all-new generation of myth-busting science superstars with mind-blowing build skills and nerves of steel.” Aspiring hosts for MythBusters will compete through social media and stunts as it tests a cast of hopefuls on their skills as they compete in various challenges.

“When I got to the network, and we clearly identified MythBustersas a franchise and something that was important to Science Channel and Discovery, and it was such a beloved show, I didn’t want to let it go,” says Marc Etkind, who became general manager of Science Channel in September after having served in the same role at sibling network Destination America. “So we looked really closely at what would be the best way to keep it going and invigorate it and thought, ‘Let’s host a worldwide search for the next MythBusters.'”

If you’re interested in a role on MythBusters, the Science Channel is inviting viewers to submit videos. ; ideal candidates would be “people who have building skills and are naturally inquisitive,” Etkind says. “People who don’t mind getting embarrassed a little bit, who ask lots of questions and have the skills and knowledge to put those to the test.” (Science Channel’s website has further details.)

The competition will start with 15 competitors who can solve challenges that include classic myths as well as new myths. Hopefuls will be eliminated each episode by a team of judges until the final pick is made.
