Jamie Hyneman’s Biography:
With his black beret, white t-shirt and bushy moustache, visual effects specialist Jamie Hyneman is busy debunking popular urban legends and rumors through a series of dangerous experiments, which he conducts with co-host Adam Savage, on the Discovery Channel’s reality program Mythbusters
. Hyneman, who was born on September 25, 1956, acquired a degree in Russian language and literature, but has taken on a variety of jobs, such as boat captain, pet shop owner, machinist, scuba diver, wilderness survival expert and chef. Moreover, he founded the special effects workshop M5 Industries and built a powerful robot called Blendo.
On Mythbusters, Hyneman is clearly the opposite of his co-host Adam Savage. He likes his space to be clean and orderly, and often gets frustrated with Savage’s immature behavior. He is calm and rational and pushes for simplicity when conducting experiments. His appearance is often the source of laughter for Savage and the crew.
