A few days ago I caught a promo for what I thought was a brand new show on the Discovery Channel: “Smash Lab”, which sounds like MythBusters without the pesky myths and non-explosive experiements that get in the way of the action.
And in the frenetic video that flashed by on the screen, I spotted a woman.
She’s Deanne Bell and, as an attractive not-quite-30-year-old, she’s hitting the exact same demographic that Kari did when she appeared on the scene.
The Smash Lab site says “new episodes” are coming, which implies that there were old episodes. It seems Deanne was (is?) on PBS in “Design Squad”… but I haven’t heard of that one, either.
Has anyone else heard of this person? Credentials seem impressive enough, as TV show hosts go. I’m looking forward to catching my first Smash Lab episode in a couple weeks…
