Jaime Vendera is an author, television personality and voice strengthening coach.
While filming an episode of MythBusters, Vendera shattered a wine glass using only his unaided voice. According to co-host Adam Savage this is the first time such an event was recorded on camera. Vendera said the show's producers contacted him after a fellow singer and Vendera's vocal teacher, Jim Gillette from the 1980s band Nitro, could not do the show. He first performed with the MythBusters on Good Morning America, shattering a wine glass with the aid of an amplifier when his opponent could not shatter the glass.
During the filming of MythBusters, Vendera's voice was measured at 117 dB at 48", translating into 120 dB at one meter as recorded by Dr. Roger Schwenke of Meyer Sound Laboratories. Since his MythBusters appearances, Vendera has performed on other US shows such as "I've Got a Secret", "Timewarp", the "Sonic1 Toothbrush" infomercial, "Dr. Oz", and "Guinness World Records Gone Wild". He has also performed on shows in France, Germany, Japan, and China. He also conducts worldwide vocal workshops with his band, VENDERA.
