Ben Nowack from "MythBusters: The Search" is one of the contestants in the Science Channel reality competition series.

As a kid, Ben Nowack built with LEGO and K-nex, then progressed right to power tools and pretty much anything he could get his hands on! By the ninth grade he was building drones for the University of Massachusetts Boston, designing autonomous research boats and going for his pilot's license. His life changed rapidly when he was struck down with Lyme Disease and missed two years of school as a result.

After a seemingly miraculous recovery, Nowack was back. He hit night school to catch up and started building like there was no tomorrow. He started a YouTube channel to showcase his skill set, and that's when, in his words, "Things went nuts!" In just one year he had built a fusion reactor, unmanned submarine, air liquefier and a bunch of high-tech scientific devices. Nowack was first noticed by Peter Brown of Whale Wars (for whom he built an array of underwater camera systems), but it wasn't long before SpaceX offered him an internship at their famous headquarters. A self-confessed build freak, he regularly spends eighteen hours a day tinkering. When not in the workshop, he climbs mountains, skis, runs ultra-marathons and paraglides. He trains daily with the goal to speed ascend peaks such as Everest without oxygen.

Who is he dating? What do you think of him?
