About the show

Hosts Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman set up experiments using a combination of science and special effects in order to recreate and debunk potentially false, but common, urban legends, hoping to set the record straight once and for all for the public. In the process, however, the duo's experiments occasionally prove the odd myth to actually be true.

Laws of Attraction

On this sizzling hot episode the team investigates the Laws of Attraction. Adam and Jamie ask is the follicular fable, gentlemen prefer blondes, fact or fair haired fiction. Then they take on internet based claims of irresistible pheromone sprays in sexy scents. And do we really get dumber when turned on by an attractive member of the opposite sex? Adam and Jamie perform a 'brain drain' to find out. Meanwhile, Kari, Grant and Tory whip up a controversial storm in a d-cup. In the service industry, do bigger breasts really mean bigger tips? And finally it's love-onomics. Does wealth really woo women - consciously - or otherwise does money talk?

Outtakes Special

This is an extraordinary collection of experiments that did not go to air for one reason or another. Adam and Jamie engage in the most diverse and incredible experiments. They try to raise a sunken boat from the sea bed by filling it with thousands and thousands of ping-pong balls. Unfortunately, the experiment has to be aborted due to the untimely arrival of a few playful sea otters that happen to live in that particular bay. This test is followed by numerous others all quite diverse in nature.
