    I watched Mythbusters back in the day. I would say that was my primary show in the 2000's. Crazy how short life can be. RIP my fellow nerd.

    It was terribly sad seeing this. I love Grant on the show! He was a cool dude, and his robotic work was awesome!
    I feel sorry for the mythbusters team because the lost Jessi Combs last August and now Grant 11 months later. That’s a lot for such a small TV family!

    Mythbusters is a legendary show and I love watching Adam’s Tested on YouTube.

    Such sad news. Grant was a shining light in the world of making and engineering.

    I had no idea Jessi passed! I watched her on a few of the car shows she did on Spike or whatever else stations they were on.

    He would have been great in pinball. Could you imagine?

    Sad news. He was so young. Also a big fan of the show. Grant sure had talents for creating things.

    RIP Grant.

    What a great humble nice caring guy.
    Waking up to this news totally sucks.
    RIP Grant. You will be missed very much.

    Sad news. My kids watched Mythbusters a lot and Grant seemed like a really cool guy on all levels. He and the other two made a great team.

    This is so sad on so many levels... This year is one for the ages and not in a good way... "The good die young"...

    Some people may not know that aside from his Mythbusters fame, he also created and built Geoff Peterson, the now retired late-night robot sidekick of Craig Ferguson.

    He was also one of the handful of people that could operate R2D2. RIP what a sad thing to have happen.

    Ah, man. Sucks. He was cool. R.I.P. Grant.
