Mythbusters - Kari's Temporary Replacement

While Kari Byron is on maternity leave, Jessi Combs will be standing in for her.

She has a (distinctly iWeb generated) personal website here too. Seems her expertise is in metal work. So, basically, Scottie without the tattoos.

Re: Mythbusters - Kari's Temporary Replacement

What, you mean Grant didn't just build a robot co-host?

Actually she has got some tattoos, just less conspicuous ones. Check the gallery on her website.

She actually looks a little like Scottie. I Googled for some video of her; she's okay, though her voice is ever so slightly annoying.

When are her episodes going to air? For that matter, when are new episodes coming back, period?

Re: Mythbusters - Kari's Temporary Replacement

Wasn't she already in some episodes? I seem to remember her from somewhere.

Maybe I'm thinking of Scottie.

edit:
After some searching it appears I am incorrect

Didn't Tory ask Grant in the lie detector test episode something like: "Have you ever thought about building a female robot for companionship?"

To which Grant just smiled real big and didn't answer.

Re: Mythbusters - Kari's Temporary Replacement

Well, that's a whole different set of design parameters than for a TV co-host.... (Though admittedly with some overlap on the aesthetic side.)

^Who are Paula and Kara? (I'm assuming you don't mean "Kari" by "Kara" since you get her name right three words later.)

I'm alluding to that obscure little show known as American Idol.

Maybe there weren't any other women with the skills already on the Discovery Channel payroll.

This girl is a real guys girl though, if you've seen her on TV you know what I mean. She's the kind of girl you really want to know.
