* KilledOffForReal: In the Grand Finale, he was dressed as a superhero, attached to a rocked sled, and sent into a concrete wall at almost 800 mph, whereupon he promptly disappears in a small flash of light. The reunion show has Adam giving small glass cubes with the largest pieces to Grant, Tory, and Kari as keepsakes.

* ExpansionPackPast: Provides the page quote. Adam frequently provides details on Jamie's past to the point it's almost a MultipleChoicePast--apparently Jamie is descended from a line of "track-straighteners" dating back to the middle ages, worked for the mob, and may be an alien and/or over two thousand years old. Or TheodoreRoosevelt, to whom he bears a pretty uncanny resemblance. His real past, though not as funny, is genuinely awesome: he ran away from home at 14 and hitchhiked across the U.S., has a degree in Russian linguistics, and has been, in alphabetical order, an animal wrangler, a boat captain, a chef, a concrete inspector, a machinist, a pet shop owner, a scuba divemaster, and a wilderness survival instructor. And that's not even a complete list.

* TeethClenchedTeamwork: He and Jamie have made it clear that they have a good deal of respect for each other but on an interpersonal level they annoy each other to no end and do not hang out after work. Occasionally, this makes it past the editing and we see Adam annoyed at Jamie's fussiness and methodical approach. With that said, their mutual joy at what they are doing is often apparent as well, and if Jamie is upset or frightened (such as when they test myths involving extreme heights, which Jamie hates), he does show a fair amount of concern for his co-host.

Adam is fond of noting that they've known each other profesionally for over twenty years, but have never had dinner together.
