We’re really getting down to the wire. Only 6 contestants remain.
Needle in a Haystack Elimination
MythBusters: The Search contestants have half the time and twice as much hay as Jamie and Adam did nearly ten years ago. The teams have to be precise with their methods.
What’s the Best Method to Find a Needle in a Haystack?
Testing idioms is a MythBusters tradition. Jon, Tracy, Martin, and Allen made a shaking cow machine that was able to find the dreaded needle in a haystack.

We’re testing this age old movie myth. Is it really possible to escape handcuffs with just a bobby pin?

This week we’re asking the contestants to take on this timeless classic. Hackett doesn’t seem phased, but the others are a bit wary.
How Hard is Finding a Needle in a Haystack?
Communication is crucial as a MythBuster. You have to be able to work pin your own and in a team.
Cardboard Boat Elimination
A cardboard boat divided cannot float. Tracy and Jason must reconnect with Brian and Jon in order to make this boat work.

In the movies we often see shootouts that happen in the dark, but is it really that easy to rely on sound alone?
Is Shooting Blind as Easy as it Seems?
This week the contestants will be making boats out of a non-traditional material.
Shooting Blindfolded and Building Cardboard Boats
At the end of the second week of MythBusters: The Search, it’s time to say goodbye to Ben. He had the build skills, but lacked the communication skills.
Paint Explosion: Elimination
In a quest to paint a room using c4, Blue Team has created a magnificent dandelion-like contraption.
Blue Team’s Dandelion of Doom
Green Team couldn’t decide on one idea, so they tested three. Allen and Jason’s put paint on the wall, but Hackett’s... did something else.
Hackett’s Paint Explosion Mishap
Talk about bring down the house! Red Team’s paint explosion decorated the walls, but also knocked them down.
Red Team’s Paint Explosion Knocks Down Walls
Can you paint a wall with explosives? No, but the myth testing sure is gorgeous!
