MythBusters: The Search Full Episode Guide

  • In the finale, the remaining contestants take on the two hardest myths yet: a water heater rocket and a walking-on-water test.

  • The participants revisit an old MythBusters challenge that has never been perfected: a spy car that is able to blind a vehicle in pursuit.

  • The remaining contestants try out two life-or-death myths: if one can climb seven stories with vacuum cleaners; and whether an amateur can land an aircraft using only radio instruction from ground control.

  • The participants test a myth straight out of the "A-Team": whether a weapon can be constructed from junkyard scrap. Then, they discover what it takes to make a bike impossible to ride.

  • The contestants attempt to locate a needle in a haystack; and find out whether it's possible to pick handcuffs with a hairpin.

  • The remaining eight participants craft and race two boats using cardboard; and find out whether it's possible to shoot a bad guy with a blindfolded on.

  • Whether a person can paint with explosives; and if alcohol induces creativity.

  • First-class builders battle to become the new MythBusters and test two tall tales: the sideways ejector chair from The Fast & the Furious and Deflategate, one of the most infamous football calamities of all-time.
