Grant Imahara (Mythbusters) :(


Recommended Posts

Those of us with young adults of a certain age may have spent quite a few years watching Mythbusters with them. Apparently Grant has died, though there's no more information about how he died. 😢

I saw this late last night, and it hit me in a way celebrity deaths usually don’t tend to. I just feel so sad about it. I really liked him. And reading tributes from those who know him, it sounds like he was every bit the good hearted person he came across as on TV.  I did see some places reporting it was a brain aneurysm, but I don’t know if that was confirmed. Really tragic. I haven’t told my kids yet.

I was shocked to see this last night, too. I had to read the headline a few times to let it sink it.

According to The Hollywood Reporter (and now a few other places like People Magazine): "Imahara died suddenly following a brain aneurysm, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. "We are heartbroken to hear this sad news about Grant." https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/grant-imahara-dead-mythbusters-host-was-49-1303101

The reports I saw said it was an aneurysm.

Grant was our favorite. Today three of our kids sent us texts telling us about Grant and saying how much they loved watching the show with us. That was pretty cool - that it meant enough to them to mention it. They’re all over the country but today we felt close.  Grant was loved in our house.
