Geeks across the nation have joined in mourning the departure of Kari Byron, Tory Bellici and Grant Imahara from the wildly popular nerd show Mythbusters. Grant Imahara has taken residence in the more delicate chambers of my heart for some time now, so it is only appropriate that he is now immortalized as an official Babe of the Month.
Mythbusters has a special place in my heart. Several years ago I was stranded in a Godforsaken foreign country and my only access to English-speaking television was the Discovery channel. It was then that I discovered Mythbusters and its most glamorous cast member, Grant Imahara. I have attempted to communicate my immense regard for Mr. Imahara for some time and I am consistently met with blank stares. The prevailing wisdom about this show is that Tori Bellici is the resident hottie of the series. (Fools. Jamie Hyneman is a Poppa Bear par excellence.) While there’s no debating that Tory Bellici is tasty morsel of manliness, he is no match for the huggable squishability of Grant Imahara.
The man is adorable. Period. It is my hope that this writing will lay to rest any remaining disputes about Grant’s epic cuddle-bility. Grant Imahara’s elfen glamor is the stuff of legend. As if the cuteness, the sheer, utter cuteness, is somehow not enough, the man possesses studly genius on an astonishing scale. The man makes robots, for Christ sakes. Robots. He designed the robotic mechanism that powers the Energizer Bunny, he’s made frequent appearances on BattleBots, he makes stuff blow up… do I seriously have to list more than one thing when he designed the fucking Energizer Bunny? Genius is sexy. How else can we explain Einstein’s rampant manwhoring? There’s no negating a hot ass or a bulging package, but nothing gets the panties wet quite as consistently as a studly genius.
If I may return to his epic cuteness, what can be made of a man who will openly perform Star Trek cosplay with no shame? Babehood, that’s what we make of it. And steam punk cosplay and Doctor Who cosplay… I think I need a cold shower.
Nerd sex appeal is tragically underrated. It is high time that we recognize the long devalued sex appeal of our nation’s nerds and there are none so nerdly as Grant Imahara. A sexy nerd can perform a wizard melee attack on my pussy any day. I am more than just a blogger; I am a patriot. As one of this country’s finest Americans, I enact the following motion: I hereby elevate Grant Imahara and his nerdly brethren to the high level of our nation’s babes. Nerds, emerge from your basement chambers and take your place amongst our nation’s finest studs.
