At ILM, Tory built models for the first two "Star Wars" prequels, "The Phantom Menace" and "Attack of the Clones." After eight years at ILM, Tory met up with Jamie again at M5 and was hired to work behind the scenes on "Myth Busters." Along with Kari, he became a part of the on-camera team during season two. Grant joined the "Myth Busters" team in 2005 after an invitation from Jamie.
Live at the Eccles presents Down the Rabbit Hole Saturday, November 18, 2017 at the Eccles Theater in downtown Salt Lake City.

The Mythbusters team have tested, among other things, whether or not pants can explode if treated with particular chemicals and then exposed to sunlight, whether the NASA moon landing may have been faked, why the Hindenburg burned as fast as it did, whether you can pancake a convertable in a head-on collision between two SUVs, and whether it's faster and conceivable to clean out a cement truck with dynamite.
The testing of these myths often involves them building outlandish machines or robots, use of a high-speed camera, or putting materials and objects under strains and stresses for which they were not built. Although many of their results are not scientifically viable because of small sample sizes etc., the Mythbusters do follow something resembling scientific process, and make obvious efforts to keep their experiments scientifically plausible while also entertaining television.
fans found out that fan-favorite cast members Kari Byron, Tory Belleci and Grant Imahara were leaving the series last month, they didn't take the news quietly. Fans took to the Internet after Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman announced the three cast members were leaving, and started a petition to re-hire Byron, the sole female on the show, as well as the two others.
"This next season we're going back to our origins with just Adam and me," Hyneman said in the video, which explained that the change took hold as of the season's last episode on August 21.
"We're gonna take a brief moment to thank you guys for your incredible work over the last 10 years," Savage said in the video.
"As the main female Mythbuster, Kari inspired a generation of girls and showed them that they too had a place in the traditionally male-dominated world of science.
While Adam and Jamie are amazing educators in their own right, Kari was what drew me and so many others to the show, year after year.
It's also disappointing to see Grant, the sole person of color on the show, dropped as well.
We already know that women and minorities often feel unwelcome in the sciences and discouraged from pursuing STEM studies and careers.
Tory Belleci is another San Francisco State graduate.
