Kari Byron

Kari Byron is best known as a host on Discovery Channel's flagship show, "Mythbusters" and the host of Science Channel's "Head Rush." For almost a decade she has been a strong presence in the world of reality-based science television.

Fostering her curious nature, she spent a lifetime acquiring odd skills and interests. After graduating college and traveling the world, she decided to settle in San Francisco and pursue a career as a sculptor. Special effects and prop making seemed like a perfect fit.

Trying to break into the field, she got an internship at M5 Industries with Jamie Hyneman. Her first day turned out to be the beginning of "Mythbusters," and a career in television. Though her dream was to be a working artist, somehow handling poop, eating bugs, wiring explosives and scraping chicken guts off the ceiling turned out to be her real dream job.
