This Discovery star is unrecognizable, isn't he? It is a he, right? Honestly, the make-up job is so good, nothing would surprise me.

These unbelievable exclusive photos popped into my inbox and my jaw dropped -- one of Discovery Channel's most beloved stars has aged rapidly for their latest 'Curiosity' special titled 'Can You Live Forever?'

EXCLUSIVE Sneak Peek: Which Discovery Star Is Aging Rapidly for TV?

Curious? Find out who it is and why they did this after the jump, plus enter to win an equally amazing prize.

Adam Savage, 42 / Adam Savage, 1000 In 'Curiosity: Can You Live Forever?' (premieres Sun., Oct. 16, 8PM ET on Discovery), Adam Savage from 'MythBusters' fame shows us what it might be like if we will one day be able to live forever, and hypothesizes about when that day might become a reality.

Yep, that's Adam -- white hair (what's left of it) and all.

Savage, who's 44 now, looks slightly less fiery in these pics -- which are circa 2967 when he'd be 1,000 years old. But we're glad to see he's still got an adventurous streak with that motorcycle and those signature glasses ... I guess those were the biggest hint, but I still didn't guess it was him.

A heavily made-up Savage looks back on his long life in this special to discuss how science and modern medicine in the 21st century transformed him into a supercharged cyber-human who could live forever. Finally, something the 'MythBusters' haven't tackled yet!

In the discussion, we'll learn about brain downloads, self-regenerating organs and full-body transplants, all essential in becoming the world's first 1,000-year-old man.
