1208-mythbusters-proposal-grant-imahara-20k-ring-MAIN-TMZ-01"MythBusters" star Grant Imahara just busted another myth ... nerds do score hot chicks, and he put a ring on his to seal the deal.

Grant popped the question to his longtime GF, Jennifer Newman, Wednesday night at Clifton's Cafeteria in downtown L.A. Most of the 250 guests thought they were there for Jennifer's surprise bday party, until Grant got down on bended knee.

As for the ring, it's a vintage 1.56 carat sparkler Grant found at an antique dealer in San Francisco for around $20k.

No wonder her answer was "F*** yeah!"

update_graphic_red_bar6:35 PM -- Young Thug's Seattle fans just got screwed ... he says he didn't make his backup flight, so he's postponing Wednesday night's show to Dec. 12.update_grey_gray_barYoung Thug gave two female Alaska Airlines employees the business for trying to make him miss his flight and his show ... at least that's the way he saw it.

The rapper went in on the women pretty hard -- calling them "peasants" and "ants" with "nappy" hair. You can tell they're pissed as he tried to offer them $15k to quit their jobs.

A rep for the airline tells TMZ ... Thug was supposed to be on a flight from ATL to Seattle, but he arrived after their 45 minute cutoff period. We're told they still offered him a seat on a partner flight, but he declined..

It's unclear if he's going to make it in time for his 7 PM gig in Seattle.

We don't know what was said before Thug started recording, but the way he treats the women here ... makes him seem like a complete tool.

Nicki Minaj Mental Health Org Fires Back ... Miami Video Is No Joke

12/5/2016 4:24 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Nicki Minaj is getting more than social media backlash for posting video of a woman losing it in Miami -- now a mental health organization is dressing her down for allegedly mocking the woman.

The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI-Miami) is sounding off, just like several of Nicki's fans, saying the clip is an invasion of the woman's privacy, which dehumanizes her.

NAMI says it's pissed Nicki's used her fame -- she has 70 million IG followers -- to influence young people in a negative manner. A rep for NAMI says, "Nobody would make fun of a cancer patient, and mental illness is an illness like any other." 

Several comments on the video claim it's well-known in South Beach the woman in the video is mentally ill. In Nicki's defense, it's entirely plausible she didn't know that ... plus, she never says anything nasty to the woman.
