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

Four years before the "MythBusters" would start busting their own myths Brian Louden was already playing around with the physics of the world, trying to understand why and how things worked. He couldn't tell you if a train car would implode under the pressure of the atmosphere, but encouraged by a high-school physics teacher he did crush a barrel. Not a bad start for a freshman. But it was just that: the start.

"MythBusters" fed into Louden's addiction to knowledge, curiosity and love of S.T.E.M., something that guides his life. He watched from day one until the last episode, dreaming of that amazing life. Out of school he quickly worked his way up to paramedic. That didn't satisfy his curiosity, so he headed to college, earning a degree in biology. From saving people's lives to understanding their decomposition at a body farm, his desire to understand life went hand in hand with understanding how all of the world works.

Louden doesn't just like to gain knowledge, he loves to share it and get others interested as well. He taught as a paramedic and as a college student, and today he can be found at schools and science fairs — anywhere he can help spread his love of understanding. As a college TA he was even able to publish a few papers and co-author a book chapter, as well as a lab manual.

It has been a lifetime journey for Louden to end up on "MythBusters: The Search." Starting young in the garage, building air cannons and giving his parents stories of exploding inventions they still love to tell, he gained the skills and knowledge that led him to where he is today. From blacksmithing to drone building, Louden thinks pushing his limits and building to expand his knowledge and skills are what make life worth living. He likes to say, "Never stop making and you will never stop learning."If there is something to build, something to learn or knowledge to spread Louden will be there. He was born to be a "MythBuster."

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