Kari Byron Biography
Kari Byron (Kari Elizabeth Byron Urich) is an American television host and artist born on 18th December 1974 in California, United States. She is popularly known for her role on MythBusters on the Discovery Channel show.
She is best known as a host on Discovery Channel’s Mythbusters but has gone on to host and produce shows spanning several networks; Head Rush, Punkin Chunkin, LDRS, Thrill Factor, Strange Trips, America Declassified, The White Rabbit Project and Positive Energy.
She graduated from Los Gatos High School in Los Gatos, California and studied at San Francisco State University, graduating magna cum laude in May 1998 with a Bachelor of Arts in film and sculpture.
After graduating from San Francisco State University and traveling the world, Kari began her career as a sculptor and painter, holding successful exhibitions at some of San Francisco’s leading galleries. “ARTIST” was only one of many hats she wore while searching for her place in the world. Her sculpting skills and love for odd jobs soon led her into the field of model-making and toy-prototyping, which led to a job with Jamie Hyneman at M5 INDUSTRIES. It was at M5 that Kari got her big break with MythBusters.
She has trained to be on MythBusters since she was a child. By the age of 5 she was experimenting on her sister and using dolls as crash-test dummies. Luckily for her parents, they always caught her right before her little sister took a ride down a laundry chute or was the subject of an “around-the-world” attempt on the playground swings.
Her passion for smart entertainment has lead her around the world, speaking on the role of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Mathematics) programming on television.
She is currently working on a book called Crash Test Girl that will drop the summer of 2018.

Kari Byron Mythbusters
She was a cast member on MythBusters from Season 1 until Season 12.wWith fellow cast members Tory Belleci and Grant Imahara they comprised what is commonly referred to as “The Build Team”. This Build Team worked with Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman to test the plausibility of various myths throughout their tenure with the show. With others also hosted their own segments. She became involved in the show after persistently showing up at Hyneman’s M5 Industries workshop in a desire to get hired by his company. She and the other Build Team members were given a more prominent role beginning with the show’s second season. Not having had a long history in show business, Byron at first found it difficult to act naturally with this more visible position but gradually became more accustomed to it.
During the second half of the 2009 season, she was on maternity leave and was temporarily replaced by Jessi Combs. From 2010–2011, she had her own show, Head Rush, on the Science Channel, geared toward science education and teens.
She has also hosted the 2010 and 2011 editions of Large, Dangerous Rocket Ships for the Science Channel. She and Belleci made a guest appearance on the October 3, 2012 episode of the Discovery series Sons of Guns. They test-fired some of the weapons in the Red Jacket shop and watched as the staff re-tested a myth previously busted by the Build Team: that a propane tank could explode if struck by a bullet. On August 21, 2014, it was announced that Byron, along with co-stars Grant Imahara and Tory Belleci, would be leaving MythBusters.
Kari Byron Boobs
Many assumed that her enlarged breasts were a result of getting silicone implants, but it could very well just be the happy side effect of getting pregnant and nursing a newborn. There are not a lot of photos of Byron outside the Mythbusters show, but she has frequently been featured in magazines, albeit with all her clothes on, which makes it infinitely hard to ascertain whether she underwent breast augmentation surgery.
