0:00:420:00:44

0:00:440:00:46

in this series of Officially Amazing!

0:00:460:00:49

Enjoy!

0:00:490:00:50

ALL: Argh!

0:00:500:00:54

THEY CHEER

0:01:070:01:09

THEY CHEER

0:01:160:01:17

That's what I'm talking about!

0:01:200:01:22

Wahey!

0:01:370:01:38

Whoo-hoo-hoo!

0:01:380:01:42

Uh-oh...waaah!

0:01:420:01:44

Waaah-ha-ha-ha!

0:01:440:01:46

Tee-hee!

0:01:460:01:47

Bonjour! I'm here in the sun-drenched south of France -

0:01:530:01:56

Marseille, to be exact - waiting for our next record breaker to arrive.

0:01:560:02:00

It seems he's a bit late, but I've not let that get me down.

0:02:000:02:03

I found myself on this little dinghy out in the ocean for a bit of

0:02:030:02:06

r'n'r time - that's rod and reel, to you and me.

0:02:060:02:10

'But fishing is merely a distraction to pass the time

0:02:100:02:13

'while I wait for the main event.

0:02:130:02:15

'And it's looming right beneath me as I float.

0:02:150:02:18

'Prepare yourselves for something incredible -

0:02:180:02:20

'prepare yourselves for flyboarding!'

0:02:200:02:23

Big Franky Zapata!

0:02:330:02:35

French flyboarding fanatic, Franky Zapata,

0:02:360:02:39

actually invented the Flyboard

0:02:390:02:41

and can do just about anything on his Jet Ski-powered machine.

0:02:410:02:44

Just look at the man soar!

0:02:440:02:47

He's actually flying with the power of water,

0:02:470:02:49

like some sort of aquatic Iron Man!

0:02:490:02:51

He can spin!

0:02:540:02:55

He can flip!

0:03:000:03:01

He can disappear!

0:03:060:03:08

Where is he?

0:03:080:03:10

Incredible!

0:03:100:03:12

And, more than that...

0:03:200:03:21

He's going to break a record on this, too! We hope! Yes!

0:03:210:03:24

Wow, and he can even carry idiots on that thing?!

0:03:260:03:29

Don't be too jealous, Al. So, how does a Flyboard work?

0:03:290:03:33

Well, bored of being a Jet Ski champion,

0:03:340:03:36

Franky took his water bike, attached a mahoosive hose to it,

0:03:360:03:40

and started experimenting.

0:03:400:03:42

Water is blasted through the pipe

0:03:420:03:43

to jets fitted on his specially designed board,

0:03:430:03:46

which Franky is attached to

0:03:460:03:47

with some even more specially designed boots.

0:03:470:03:49

Using this hand-held throttle,

0:03:510:03:52

he controls the water pressure from his Jet Ski.

0:03:520:03:56

Higher pressure allows him to soar over 15 metres in the air,

0:03:560:03:59

while his Jet Ski sits down below all alone.

0:03:590:04:03

All in all, this is an incredibly difficult machine to operate,

0:04:030:04:06

but Franky is the best in the world at it.

0:04:060:04:08

I think it's time to meet Mr Flyboard himself.

0:04:110:04:14

Ahh-ha-ha-ha!

0:04:150:04:18

Oh, look at that! Look at that!

0:04:180:04:21

He's still going! I need to dry my feet.

0:04:210:04:23

-That was brilliant!

-Thanks.

0:04:230:04:25

So Franky, it's great to meet you, first of all.

0:04:250:04:27

-But, please tell me - is this thing off?

-Yep!

0:04:270:04:30

-There's no water jets about to fly out?

-No, no - it's fine.

0:04:300:04:33

Do you feel like a superhero up there?

0:04:330:04:35

You feel like you're superhero because you can jump

0:04:350:04:38

in the water as a mermaid, and you can also fly as Iron Man.

0:04:380:04:43

Nothing is like this. Nothing give you the ability to fly.

0:04:430:04:46

You were telling me earlier, you haven't really done any

0:04:460:04:49

-flyboarding for about four months?

-Yeah, I didn't practice too much.

0:04:490:04:52

But it's like bicycle, you never forget.

0:04:520:04:54

Well, let's hope not, because today, he's attempting to get a new

0:04:570:05:00

Guinness World Records title for...

0:05:000:05:02

And this is a backflip.

0:05:050:05:07

Right, as Franky completes his last-minute checks,

0:05:090:05:12

why don't we take a look at those all-important rules?

0:05:120:05:15

Only complete 360 degree rotations will count towards the final total.

0:05:150:05:20

Franky has just 60 seconds to complete the attempt.

0:05:200:05:24

And, to set a new record,

0:05:240:05:26

Franky needs to complete at least ten backflips.

0:05:260:05:29

That means more than one every six seconds!

0:05:290:05:31

OK, we're just about ready,

0:05:380:05:39

you can probably see flyboarder ace Franky Zapata doing last-minute

0:05:390:05:43

warm-ups behind me, let's see if he's about there. Franky, you good?

0:05:430:05:47

I think he's ready.

0:05:480:05:49

Bonne chance!

0:05:490:05:50

The time doesn't start until he attempts his first backflip.

0:05:540:05:58

One.

0:06:000:06:01

Two.

0:06:010:06:02

Three.

0:06:020:06:03

And that's four already!

0:06:040:06:05

'But after each set, Franky has to make sure the pipe uncoils -

0:06:070:06:10

'otherwise, it could cut off his water supply

0:06:100:06:13

'and end his record attempt.'

0:06:130:06:14

Look at that, it's incredible!

0:06:170:06:19

He's a human dolphin!

0:06:190:06:21

But each flip must be making him more and more dizzy!

0:06:210:06:24

It takes such effort to do that.

0:06:260:06:28

A little break in-between to let the tube uncoil

0:06:280:06:30

and his head settle again, but the 60 seconds are ticking away.

0:06:300:06:34

He seems to be doing brilliantly, but he must be exhausted -

0:06:400:06:43

and don't forget, he's controlling the Jet Ski at the same time.

0:06:430:06:47

Not long left.

0:06:530:06:54

Go on Franky!

0:06:560:06:57

'One last push.'

0:06:570:06:59

-Stop!

-That's it!

0:07:050:07:06

-Stop!

-That's it.

0:07:060:07:08

That was absolutely brilliant, wasn't it?

0:07:080:07:11

Franky has done all he can. Only official adjudicator Anna

0:07:130:07:17

knows whether he's done more than ten back flips.

0:07:170:07:20

All right, stop showing off.

0:07:200:07:22

Come on over here, Franky.

0:07:220:07:23

That was incredible! How do you feel?

0:07:230:07:26

-Ah, I feel not so bad.

-Yeah?

-I feel it was good.

0:07:260:07:30

He seems pretty confident, and has that French cool about him,

0:07:300:07:34

that je ne sais what.

0:07:340:07:36

He seemed to do well, but were all the loops legal?

0:07:370:07:39

Anna, how did he do?

0:07:410:07:43

He did brilliantly, he achieved 26!

0:07:430:07:45

-Wow, yes!

-Congratulations!

0:07:450:07:47

26?!

0:07:470:07:48

Wow, a new world record, and more than double the target!

0:07:480:07:53

-Yes!

-Ah, look at that!

0:07:530:07:55

Are you off? He's going! He's a superhero!

0:07:550:08:00

Best record celebration ever!

0:08:030:08:06

What have we got next, Haruka?

0:08:060:08:08

Well, it involves spiders, Ben.

0:08:080:08:11

Spiders?! Ahem, I mean...cool.

0:08:110:08:13

Ow!

0:08:190:08:21

Say g'day to 11-year-old Australian Tom Buchanan,

0:08:210:08:25

also known as Spider-Boy.

0:08:250:08:28

But he's not a real Spider-Boy -

0:08:280:08:30

he's not been bitten by a spider and given spider powers.

0:08:300:08:33

That's just silly.

0:08:330:08:35

He is, however, about to attempt

0:08:350:08:36

to obtain a Guinness World Record title, but which of these is it?

0:08:360:08:40

Well, this isn't an easy one

0:08:510:08:53

to spy...der.

0:08:530:08:55

Yes, it's the record for...

0:08:550:08:57

Ew, why?!

0:09:000:09:03

-Sounds fun.

-Sounds fun? Sounds frightening!

0:09:030:09:07

Tom has to lie in the Perspex booth for over 30 seconds with the

0:09:070:09:10

spiders on his body, but at least he's wearing sufficient safety gear.

0:09:100:09:15

Those shorts should do the trick(!)

0:09:150:09:17

The other guys are wearing thick gloves!

0:09:170:09:19

These golden orb spiders are a little creepy and crawley,

0:09:190:09:23

but, don't worry, they're not VERY poisonous. I think.

0:09:230:09:26

SPIDER: Nah, he's safe, mate. Don't you worry.

0:09:260:09:28

Phew! Well, they've got lovely voices.

0:09:280:09:32

The current record is...

0:09:320:09:34

But Tom wants to try...

0:09:340:09:36

Which is precisely 125 more spiders than I'd ever want on me!

0:09:370:09:43

Ew!

0:09:430:09:44

15 seconds gone, he's halfway and handling this amazingly.

0:09:440:09:49

And the spiders aren't doing too bad either.

0:09:490:09:51

Strewth! They stinkles, mate! They smell worse than a possum's poo.

0:09:510:09:56

He's nearly there!

0:09:560:09:58

-30 seconds, Tom.

-He's done it!

-Well done, mate! Bonza! Ripper!

0:09:580:10:01

And he's also managed not to scream with a spider on his face. Argh!

0:10:010:10:06

Congratulations to our Spider-Boy!

0:10:060:10:09

Thanks, Haruka!

0:10:110:10:12

Now, another record attempt

0:10:120:10:13

starring an animal.

0:10:130:10:14

But, thankfully, it's one that's far less spidery.

0:10:140:10:17

-Whoa!

-Tee-hee!

0:10:220:10:23

Here on Officially Amazing, we love a dog record.

0:10:240:10:27

And I am your man, your roving reporter,

0:10:270:10:30

when it comes to sniffing out the latest record breaker.

0:10:300:10:33

And so, today, I'm searching high -

0:10:330:10:37

and low - to find a new daring doggie.

0:10:370:10:40

-HE SNIFFS

-Ugh!

0:10:400:10:42

Yes, I've got an exclusive scoop!

0:10:420:10:45

And, hopefully, somewhere, a pooper-scooper.

0:10:450:10:48

Nothing gets past Benedict Sherlock Shires.

0:10:480:10:51

All I need is my faithful friend to help me out -

0:10:510:10:54

but I just can't find him anywhere!

0:10:540:10:56

-He's behind you, Ben!

-Behind me?!

0:10:560:10:59

I'm not falling for that one.

0:10:590:11:01

Anyway, I've had a tip-off about a very special dog.

0:11:010:11:04

A five-year-old labradoodle called Millie.

0:11:040:11:07

Not only can she skateboard...

0:11:070:11:09

Not only can she ride a scooter...

0:11:090:11:11

But today, this marvellous mutt is going to walk not forwards,

0:11:110:11:15

but backwards, on a barrel,

0:11:150:11:18

and try and gain a Guinness World Records title in the process.

0:11:180:11:21

Can she do it? Well, I met up with Millie to find out.

0:11:210:11:24

So, how are you feeling about today's record?

0:11:240:11:27

Well, I hope it will be a backwards walk in the park. Ha-ha-ha!

0:11:270:11:30

-Millie, on a scale of one to ten, how tasty is the mic?

-Terrible!

0:11:300:11:34

And you're filming me from my worst side! Unbelievable!

0:11:340:11:38

Whoops! Well, maybe I'll have more luck with owner Imogen.

0:11:380:11:41

When did you first discover that Millie could go

0:11:440:11:46

-backwards on a barrel?

-She learnt it about a year ago.

0:11:460:11:49

When it moved a bit, she jumped off. But she quickly...

0:11:490:11:52

In about two weeks, she was doing it all right.

0:11:520:11:55

The secret to Millie's success is a highly sophisticated,

0:11:550:11:58

custom-made piece of kit.

0:11:580:11:59

AL: Yeah, it looks like a barrel with some carpet on it to me.

0:11:590:12:03

Shut up, Al.

0:12:030:12:04

MILLIE BARKS

0:12:040:12:07

Oh, no - I'm sorry about this.

0:12:070:12:09

He follows me around a lot. Go on!

0:12:090:12:12

Whilst they go prepared for the record,

0:12:140:12:16

why don't we check out the rules?

0:12:160:12:17

MILLIE BARKS

0:12:170:12:19

I can't resist.

0:12:190:12:20

'Well, that's quite embarrassing. Back to the rules.'

0:12:220:12:24

Millie must travel the full ten-metre distance

0:12:260:12:28

whilst on the barrel.

0:12:280:12:29

Imogen can't physically assist her in any way -

0:12:290:12:32

that means no pushing or pulling.

0:12:320:12:34

And, to set a new record,

0:12:340:12:35

Millie must complete her course

0:12:350:12:37

in under 30 seconds.

0:12:370:12:39

That's a long distance to keep doing this tricky task,

0:12:390:12:41

especially when Millie can't even see where she's going!

0:12:410:12:44

-Imogen, are you ready?

-Yeah.

0:12:440:12:46

-Excellent. Millie, you ready?

-I was born ready.

0:12:460:12:49

That's what I like to hear. Let's break a world record!

0:12:490:12:52

-Step on.

-'Can she labradoodle it?'

0:12:530:12:55

That's OK... Oh! And we're off!

0:12:550:12:57

-Come on, good girl.

-It's quick! Come on, Millie!

0:12:570:12:59

'Look at her legs go!'

0:12:590:13:01

Millie's not putting a paw wrong,

0:13:010:13:03

but there are no wing mirrors on this barrel.

0:13:030:13:05

She's trusting Imogen implicitly

0:13:050:13:06

to keep her going in the right direction.

0:13:060:13:09

She's on a roll, quite literally! Come on, Millie!

0:13:090:13:13

'She's so close, but so are Imogen's hands.

0:13:130:13:16

'If she touches Millie, it's all over.'

0:13:160:13:18

Yes, yes, yes!

0:13:210:13:23

-Brilliant stuff! Wow!

-Good girl!

0:13:230:13:25

Speedy or what?

0:13:250:13:28

Incredible!

0:13:280:13:29

Millie made that look easy, but to set the world record,

0:13:290:13:31

she needs to be faster than 30 seconds.

0:13:310:13:34

So, has she done it?

0:13:340:13:35

So, she's a canine star and so are you

0:13:360:13:39

because you achieved that in eight seconds!

0:13:390:13:41

-Wow!

-So, congratulations!

0:13:410:13:43

Eight seconds! Eight seconds, Millie!

0:13:430:13:45

Wow, that's officially amazing!

0:13:450:13:47

And now, officially, a new world record.

0:13:470:13:50

She's travelled ten metres in eight seconds -

0:13:500:13:53

that's a speed of almost 5km an hour.

0:13:530:13:56

Well, what a fantastic effort from Imogen and Millie.

0:13:560:14:00

-Thank goodness she didn't cross the...

-Oh, Ben!

0:14:000:14:02

I can't stand this any more, I'm off.

0:14:020:14:06

Oh, well, my joke scared her off.

0:14:060:14:08

And speaking of scary stuff...

0:14:080:14:12

Spooky records! Mwah-ha-ha-ha!

0:14:120:14:17

# Now, Johann Heinrich Karl Thieme

0:14:170:14:20

# Had a ghoulish job which was far from dreamy

0:14:200:14:23

# Digging graves for 50 years

0:14:230:14:26

# Who said the dead can't help your career

0:14:260:14:28

# Skeletons are scary and skinless too

0:14:280:14:31

# The University of Tennessee has got quite a few

0:14:310:14:33

# The largest collection of human skeletons is quite a sight

0:14:330:14:36

# But you probably wouldn't want to go and see it at night

0:14:360:14:39

-# Spooky

-They'll give you a fright

0:14:390:14:42

# Spooky

Yahoo!

0:16:000:16:02

Uh-oh.

0:16:020:16:03

Last series, three giants of world record breaking

0:16:070:16:11

engaged in a global battle

0:16:110:16:13

to become the undisputed king of Officially Competitive.

0:16:130:16:16

Representing America and carrying the Star Spangled Banner,

0:16:160:16:21

we met US Ray.

0:16:210:16:23

Representing Japan,

0:16:230:16:25

we witnessed the sparkly-spangled bottom of Mr Cherry.

0:16:250:16:28

It's number one!

0:16:280:16:30

And, representing the UK, our un-spangly national treasure,

0:16:300:16:34

Sizzling Steve!

0:16:340:16:35

They competed in a series of record attempts you can try at home!

0:16:370:16:41

And, in the end, Mr Cherry came out on top,

0:16:410:16:44

winning six out of 13 challenges

0:16:440:16:46

and gaining six Guinness World Records titles in the process.

0:16:460:16:50

Number one champion!

0:16:500:16:52

But for how much longer will he be able to hang onto his crown?

0:16:520:16:56

Because now, they're back!

0:16:560:16:57

And for the first time ever, they're in the same place.

0:16:570:17:01

They've been brought together from across the globe,

0:17:020:17:05

ready to compete again

0:17:050:17:06

in our top secret record-breaking bunker in the UK.

0:17:060:17:10

But they're not alone.

0:17:120:17:13

The whole Officially Amazing team is here to witness the greatness.

0:17:140:17:19

This is...

0:17:190:17:22

Let the games begin!

0:17:240:17:26

Earlier on, the first task was to decide

0:17:270:17:30

the order in which our competitors went in today's attempt.

0:17:300:17:34

That was done by yours truly, Al and Haruka

0:17:340:17:37

competing on behalf of our heroes, in a challenge called...

0:17:370:17:40

All we had to do was move the chocolate from our forehead

0:17:440:17:47

into our mouth using only our facial muscles as quickly as we could.

0:17:470:17:51

Al was discovered to be a cheeky cheat.

0:17:510:17:53

-I put it back on my eye, where it was.

-No!

0:17:530:17:56

Then I skilled it, and came out on top.

0:17:560:17:59

This meant Steve got to pick if he went first,

0:17:590:18:01

second or third in their challenge, and he chose to go second.

0:18:010:18:05

A tactical decision,

0:18:050:18:06

meaning he could watch and learn from the first attempt,

0:18:060:18:08

and then terrify the person coming after him.

0:18:080:18:11

Due to Al's cheating, Ray's up first.

0:18:110:18:14

But what is today's almighty record attempt?

0:18:140:18:17

There's a bit of a party atmosphere pervading,

0:18:170:18:20

because today, we're putting jelly on your telly.

0:18:200:18:23

Yes, that's right - it's the record for...

0:18:230:18:26

But that's not all - there's a twist.

0:18:270:18:29

They're eating with chopsticks.

0:18:290:18:31

Feeling confident, guys?

0:18:310:18:32

-ALL:

-Yes!

0:18:320:18:34

If you're brave enough to want to try this at home, you will need...

0:18:340:18:38

While we waited for our jelly to set,

0:18:410:18:43

we caught up with the competitors.

0:18:430:18:45

And after his sensational chopstick triumph over Mr Cherry last series,

0:18:450:18:49

I met up with a super-confident Steve

0:18:500:18:52

in his favourite picnic spot.

0:18:520:18:54

So, Steve. The most jelly eaten with chopsticks in one minute.

0:18:550:18:59

It's a chopstick record, surely you're a favourite?

0:18:590:19:02

I'm always a favourite.

0:19:020:19:04

Yeah, but "Cherry" sounds like "jelly".

0:19:040:19:06

Do you think that gives him the advantage?

0:19:060:19:08

If it's a cherry jelly, maybe.

0:19:080:19:12

But if it's just strawberry jelly, then no.

0:19:120:19:15

-So it could literally come down to jelly flavour as to who wins?

-Yeah.

0:19:150:19:19

Ohhhh-kay. So, flavours seem important to Steve.

0:19:190:19:23

But when I spoke to US Ray,

0:19:230:19:25

he was more concerned with what he'd be eating.

0:19:250:19:27

-The most jelly eaten with chopsticks.

-Yeah!

0:19:270:19:30

And I'm like, we put jelly with peanut butter and make a sandwich,

0:19:300:19:32

but they call that - I guess it's our Jell-O.

0:19:320:19:34

-Yeah, we need to let them know it's Jell-O.

-That's right.

0:19:340:19:37

-What's your favourite flavour of Jell-O?

-Red.

-Red.

0:19:370:19:39

Red's not a flavour, that's a colour -

0:19:390:19:41

but we're not here to split hairs.

0:19:410:19:42

What are you going to do, what's your strategy?

0:19:420:19:45

See, Jell-O's kind of tricky, it's kind of wobbly,

0:19:450:19:47

so...I can't really say that I'm going to have a steady hand.

0:19:470:19:51

It's just, kind of, go really fast.

0:19:510:19:53

-How much Jell-O do you think you can get down?

-As much as it takes.

0:19:530:19:57

As much as it takes. This is a man that serious about Jell-O.

0:19:570:19:59

That's right.

0:19:590:20:00

And while Team USA worry about whether it's jelly or Jell-O -

0:20:000:20:04

it's jelly, by the way -

0:20:040:20:06

Mr Cherry was most concerned about the jelly's taste.

0:20:060:20:09

So is there any difference between the UK jelly and Japanese jelly?

0:20:090:20:15

HE SPEAKS IN JAPANESE

0:20:150:20:17

-TRANSLATED:

-Oh, aye - British jelly is disgusting.

0:20:170:20:21

When I dated during practice, I knew I didn't like it.

0:20:230:20:27

What?!

0:20:270:20:28

Our jelly's delicious!

0:20:280:20:30

Right, while the three competitors go off to mentally prepare

0:20:300:20:33

for the attempt, he is a mental puzzle for you to decipher.

0:20:330:20:37

-Al?

-Yes, very confusing, Ben.

0:20:370:20:40

This lady is sitting on a world record breaking item,

0:20:400:20:43

but what is it?

0:20:430:20:45

Is it the world's largest piano? The world tallest table?

0:20:450:20:50

Or the biggest fossilised dinosaur poo ever?

0:20:500:20:55

Pia-pia-pia-KNOW, that the answer

0:20:550:20:58

is the world's largest piano.

0:20:580:21:01

And just look at it! A stonking great honky-tonk monster!

0:21:010:21:06

Constructed by Daniel Czapiewski of Poland,

0:21:060:21:08

the mammoth music box is over six metres long,

0:21:080:21:11

two metres high, and weighs nearly two tonnes!

0:21:110:21:15

But it's not alone in the world of instruments made for giants.

0:21:150:21:18

Check out this huge accordion made in Italy,

0:21:180:21:21

it took over 1,000 hours to build!

0:21:210:21:23

And that those with gargantuan lungs,

0:21:250:21:27

here is the world's largest saxophone,

0:21:270:21:29

which is nearly three metres in height!

0:21:290:21:32

Brazilian J'Elle Stainer has built a pretty cool instrument.

0:21:320:21:35

Now that jazz!

0:21:350:21:37

And what's more, all three of these are playable, working instruments.

0:21:380:21:42

Want to hear them play something? Sure, here you go!

0:21:420:21:45

MUSIC PLAYS

0:21:450:21:47

BOOM!

0:21:470:21:49

Whoa-ho! Did not see... Oh, my... Hmm.

0:21:490:21:52

Back to our jelly-based finale, then! I guess?! Go, Ray!

0:21:520:21:57

Nice one, Al.

0:21:570:21:58

Yes, here at Officially Competitiver HQ, we're ready for the...

0:21:580:22:02

..record attempt.

0:22:050:22:06

Here is the rule - you must use one hand only to hold the chopsticks,

0:22:060:22:11

and that other hand must be kept behind their bag at all times.

0:22:110:22:14

The record to beat is...

0:22:140:22:16

..which is a lot of jelly - it's about the weight of an iPad!

0:22:170:22:22

Each of them will have a large plate of jelly,

0:22:220:22:24

which official adjudicator Anna will weigh before the attempt

0:22:240:22:27

and then again afterwards.

0:22:270:22:28

The difference in weight will confirm what they've eaten.

0:22:280:22:31

US Ray's going to do America proud.

0:22:310:22:34

And the crowd is cheering on the right man.

0:22:340:22:36

-Bon appetit!

-Jelly!

0:22:360:22:39

I'll count you down from three...two...one...

0:22:390:22:41

Begin!

0:22:410:22:43

Come on, Ray.

0:22:430:22:45

'Not much going in, Ray.'

0:22:450:22:46

He seems to be struggling with his chopsticks.

0:22:460:22:50

Oh, I'm not sure that's allowed, Al!

0:22:500:22:52

Just one simple rule about one hand, and he's broken it!

0:22:520:22:55

Sh, Ben!

0:22:550:22:56

Ah, man - Ray's chopsticks are all over the place!

0:22:560:23:00

The record is for most jelly eaten - right now, I'd take any jelly.

0:23:000:23:04

-Come on, Ray!

-Ray, you're fine.

0:23:040:23:06

There you go.

0:23:060:23:09

Oh! That's OK.

0:23:090:23:10

Oh, that Jell-O and goodbye as it bounces off Ray's hungry mouth

0:23:100:23:15

and back onto the plate.

0:23:150:23:16

This couldn't end soon enough.

0:23:160:23:18

-Yes, technique!

-Five, four...

0:23:200:23:23

-Go on, Ray!

-..three, two, one - stop!

0:23:230:23:27

OK, now he has to show Anna his empty mouth to prove

0:23:270:23:30

he swallowed all the jelly.

0:23:300:23:31

It's tougher than it looks!

0:23:320:23:34

-Ray, you feeling full now?

-Just a little bit.

0:23:340:23:36

-It's harder than it looks, right?

-Definitely.

-Yeah.

0:23:360:23:38

We'll soon see.

0:23:380:23:40

Sizzling Steve chose to go second to learn from Ray's attempt -

0:23:400:23:43

but in doing so, he's only learned how not to do it!

0:23:430:23:46

And I'm not sure he should be doing that move either! Whatever it is.

0:23:460:23:50

Anyway, go Steve!

0:23:500:23:52

Count you in - on three, two, one...eat!

0:23:530:23:56

ALL: Ugh!

0:23:590:24:00

Steve is staying close to the plate, that's a good tactic.

0:24:010:24:04

And shovelling the jelly speedily, and unpleasantly.

0:24:040:24:07

But he still showing just how hard this challenge is.

0:24:070:24:10

Maybe you can do better at home?

0:24:100:24:12

Mr Cherry's not the least bit worried.

0:24:150:24:17

Though, perhaps, slightly disgusted.

0:24:170:24:20

And me and Ray...

0:24:200:24:21

Well, we're just spellbound

0:24:210:24:23

-Five, four...

-Yes.

-..three, two, one - stop!

0:24:250:24:30

Ha-ha-ha!

0:24:300:24:32

And a waterfall to finish. That was lovely.

0:24:320:24:34

'Steve, showing Anna his mouth is empty -

0:24:340:24:35

'ugh, I don't envy her job there... Steve had tuna for lunch.'

0:24:350:24:39

Well, it's looking pretty good for Mr Cherry after that. Here we go!

0:24:390:24:44

Ganbare Cherry!

0:24:440:24:46

-OK! Chopsticks!

-From Japan, ne?

-OK.

0:24:460:24:49

Three, two, one - go!

0:24:490:24:52

-Cherry is very speedy!

-Uh-oh.

0:24:530:24:56

But it's like listening to my grandmother slurping soup.

0:24:560:25:00

There is a lot going on in, though.

0:25:000:25:02

Can he not just win, but potentially break the record?

0:25:020:25:05

-Go on, Cherry - you can do it.

-He's cleaning the plate.

0:25:050:25:09

Oh, that's a huge chunk!

0:25:120:25:14

I think that piece alone was enough to beat Steve.

0:25:140:25:16

And as for Ray, he was level with him before he even sat down.

0:25:160:25:20

This is looking very hopeful!

0:25:220:25:24

Five, four, three, two, one - stop!

0:25:240:25:29

-All right!

-Ew! Poor Anna.

0:25:290:25:32

Well, after watching that slurp-tastic performance,

0:25:320:25:35

there can really be little doubt of the outcome.

0:25:350:25:39

Official adjudicator Anna dutifully weighs the leftover jelly,

0:25:390:25:42

to see the difference between that and the starting weight and confirm

0:25:420:25:46

exactly how much has left the plate and entered their stomachs.

0:25:460:25:49

Well, in third place - unfortunately, there was

0:25:500:25:52

-a disqualification. Ray, you used two hands...

-Oh!

0:25:520:25:56

-So you are disqualified.

-Told you, Al!

0:25:560:25:58

Here's the illegal move - Ray adjusting his chopsticks

0:25:580:26:01

with that naughty second hand.

0:26:010:26:02

Not that a second hand helped, of course.

0:26:020:26:04

It either Steve or Mr Cherry.

0:26:040:26:07

But who was it, Anna?

0:26:070:26:10

-It's Mr Cherry!

-Yay!

0:26:100:26:13

Yes - Steve only ate 226 grams.

0:26:130:26:17

And now, the all-important question!

0:26:170:26:20

Did we get a world record?

0:26:200:26:22

-Yes, we did!

-Yay!

-Come on!

0:26:220:26:27

Yes!

0:26:270:26:28

With 663 grams of jelly eaten,

0:26:280:26:31

he's beaten the previous record of 610 by 53 grams,

0:26:310:26:34

and bagged himself a Guinness World Records title!

0:26:340:26:38

CHANTING: Cherry! Cherry!

0:26:380:26:40

Japanese bellies!

0:26:400:26:41

Oh, bloop-bloop-bloop! Bloop-bloop-bloop!

0:26:410:26:43

Japan bloop-bloop-bloooooppp!

0:26:430:26:46

Oh, a traditional Japanese jelly-belly jive, there.

0:26:460:26:49

And Mr Cherry begins the series as heroically as he ended the last.

0:26:510:26:55

-But will his success continue?

-Chopstick!

0:26:550:26:57

And what does his win do to the scores?

0:27:000:27:02

Well, it's the first event, so 1-0-0, obviously.

0:27:020:27:06

But it's early days, with everything to play for.

0:27:060:27:08

-LAUGHING:

-Love Japan.

0:27:080:27:11

England, no! USA...

0:27:110:27:13

HE LAUGHS

0:27:130:27:15

Love Japan!

0:27:150:27:17

Will Steve and Ray wipe the smile off his face?

0:27:170:27:20

Find out next time,

0:27:200:27:21

when we will have more officially amazing record attempts, like these!

0:27:210:27:25

# Well, in Officially Competitive

0:27:250:27:27

# Our three legends gathered in one place

0:27:270:27:30

# But Sizzler and Ray left town with dismay

0:27:300:27:32

# As Cherry won the jelly-eating race

0:27:320:27:35

# Franky Zapata amazed

0:27:470:27:52

Well, if that little lot has left you wanting more,

0:27:520:27:55

don't forget to watch Officially Amazing Extra

0:27:550:27:57

tomorrow morning for some exclusive, unseen footage

0:27:570:28:01

and a sneak peek of what's on tomorrow's show.

0:28:010:28:03

Ben Shires, Al Jackson and Haruka Kuroda witness breathtaking record attempts from around the world.

Ben Shires travels to the South of France to witness real-life superhero Frankie Zapata, as he takes to the sky on his water-powered hoverboard - but will Frankie be able to break a record for the most jet-powered back flips?

Those of a squeamish disposition would do well to look away when Australian 11-year-old Tom tries to break the horrifying record for the most spiders on the body! And the horror doesn't end there - we'll be taking a musical look at records involving two-headed animals, blood-drinking birds and many more spooky sights!

We meet a dog with an extraordinary talent - five-year-old labradoodle Millie can skateboard, and ride a scooter but can she travel like lightening on a barrel - backwards? With her owner Imogen, Millie will do her best to beat the record for fastest 10 meters by a dog on a barrel.

Finally, in Officially Competitive, Sizzling Steve, US Ray and the Beast From the East, Mr Cherry himself are back for another round of records you can try yourself at home - and this time they're all together in the UK. From our top secret record-breaking HQ (located just outside Woodbridge in Suffolk), these superpowers of world record breaking will go head to head to head to try and smash the record for eating jelly with chopsticks. Can one of them break it?
