Officially, officially, officially... Amazing!
Hello, and welcome to Officially Amazing: The Best Of The Bunker.
Hula Hooping heroics and a tonne of gloopy gunge.
But first, we welcome back our three legends in...
And I can reveal that today
our heroes will attempt the record for...
The custard cream, the bourbon, the ginger snap.
In the hands of our legends, the humble biscuit could be the means by
which they achieve record-breaking immortality!
Here are the rules.
Any commercially available cream-filled biscuits may be used,
sweet or savoury.
The biscuits must be placed on top of each other, individually,
to form a tower.
Once the 30 seconds are up,
the tower must stand for a further five seconds without falling.
And for the world record,
our heroes need to stack 20 cream-filled biscuits in 30 seconds.
So, who do you think will be the biscuit-stacking supremo?
The bunkerites have voted
and a whopping 44% of them
think Cherry will win.
Understandable confidence in the reigning champion who will
open the competition.
Mr Cherry, are you ready?
I am ready! Go!
Three, two, one!
And we're off!
A tremendous start from the big man.
Fingering those creamy treats with the authority you would
expect from a four-time champion.
But look at his hand shaking.
Is the pressure of a live audience getting to Cherry?
He is building at a phenomenal pace but that tower is swaying.
-Four, three, two...
Oh, and it nearly went.
But some sublime biscuitry saves the day.
Two, one, stop!
Whoa! Did Cherry stack that last biscuit in time?
And, more importantly,
can his precarious pylon survive the five-second countdown?
A magnificent display of world-class biscuit-stacking.
Soon to be beaten by my man US Ray!
A confident start.
That is three stacked and none eaten.
Great work, Ray!
The view from biscuit cam is that of a perfectly aligned tower.
Sadly, the view from every other cam is of some kind of miniature
OK, so it's not perfect.
But it's still standing.
Ooh! Think steady thoughts, America!
What's he doing?
He's stopped before the 30 seconds is up.
He had no choice.
When your tower is teetering on the brink of toppling,
you stop topping that tower.
And the leaning Tower of...
Step forward Steve and his keks.
That's German for biscuit.
And feast your eyes on how meticulously Steve has laid
out his keks.
Not only that, he has chosen two different sized keks for his stack.
Poetry in motion already.
Just look how unfazed the Sizzler was
by that early biscuit misplacement.
He's a hawk-eyed speedster.
Homing in on the next tasty target as he picks up each cookie.
The Siz means biz...
And just look at the roar of the home crowd!
They're driving him on...
..one German biscuit at a time.
And he's on to the small ones.
First-class cookie construction.
And not a flutter during the five-second countdown.
A superbly sturdy stack, and doesn't he know it!
We've seen three towering performances.
But did anyone reach the world record target of 20?
Only official adjudicator Shantha can tell us.
Do we have a new world record?
Yes, we do.
And I can confirm that two of our competitors broke the record target.
But who has taken the biscuit and made history, nay, biscuitry?
-In third place...
..with a total of 12 biscuits, is...
Our first celebration of last place from Team USA of the series.
And in first place,
with a record-breaking total of 26 biscuit, is...
A perfect start from the champion.
One event, one world record.
That last-second biscuit took Cherry out of reach, beating Sizzler
by just one to start where he left off -
at the top of the leaderboard.
Just like 44% of our audience knew he would.
Meet Hula Hooping hero Marawa The Amazing.
Marawa already holds five Hula Hooping world records.
She can Hula 200 hoops at the same time.
She already holds the record for the fastest 100 metres hula
and today, she's going for...
Marawa the Amazing, welcome to Officially Amazing.
Thank you for having me.
As someone who is not very good at Hula Hooping
where might they be going wrong?
-With the hoop.
-It's always the hoop's fault.
-Always the hoop.
-It's not you.
When you want to spin it and get it going,
a lot of people think they have to do some weird like,
bend their knees and move their arms around and go...
It's a very small, little, tiny push.
And it's actually forwards and backwards,
not round and round in a big circle.
-Ah, so the hoop goes round, but you don't.
So Marawa is just checking out the course
to see if it's up to spec for her.
Obviously, she wants to make sure there are no divots or anything.
-How's it looking, all right?
I mean, obviously, she will be going faster than that
and there is unlikely to be a dog on the course.
I will tell you this.
I ran it at full pelt without a Hula Hoop and it took me 7.5 seconds.
And she has got to do the whole thing with
a Hula Hoop in 10 or under.
It's going to be tough.
Well, there can be no hula without some rula...s.
The hoop must be revolving before Marawa crosses the start line
and must keep revolving throughout.
She can't touch the Hula Hoop with her hands
and if the hoop drops to the floor, the attempt is over.
For the world record,
Marawa has to hula 50 metres in just 10 seconds or less.
Can she do it?
Well, our bunker brigade have made their predictions
and a huge 84% of them think she will.
What do you think? Let's find out.
-Marawa, are you ready to go for hooping glory?
For the record...
..three, two, one, go!
It's a fantastic start.
She is flat-out sprinting
and yet the hoop is gliding round without even a wobble.
She's making it look easy but check out Marawa's stomach muscles,
they're working to the absolute limit.
This is fast, this is really strong.
Great race, lovely stuff!
That was ridiculously fast.
Let's watch again without the slow-mo.
No, I still can't figure out how she does it.
She is guffawing in the face of gravity.
But was it faster than the 10 seconds she needs for a record?
Over to official adjudicator Mark.
It was 8.76 seconds.
-It's a brand-new Guinness world record, thank you!
Cue the celebration! Whoo!
She got the record with over one second to spare.
Heavenly Hula Hooping.
Marawa, you're not just amazing, you're officially amazing.
Just like the 84% of our audience who knew you'd do it.
Including Jay, who gets a hi-fi from his hero, me!
Dreams do come true!
And what is this? It's a gunge tank, but who's going in it?
Well, meet Andrew, one of today's bunker crew who joins us
for the record for...
And he has a very special task.
Now, you need to make a choice.
Two of our competitors are going to be stationed here,
hooking ducks and the other one will face...
..the gunge tank of doom!
Which of our three plucky competitive legends are you going to
choose to meet their possible fate?
Our brave warriors are reduced to begging
in a desperate bid to avoid the gunge. Pitiful.
Oh! US Ray!
-Andrew, have you got any last words for Ray?
Cherry and Sizzler combining powers at last.
I have dreamt of this moment.
I shall call them Chizzler!
Meanwhile, Ray's excitement about being first in the gunge tank
Can Chizzler save him from a gunging by breaking the record?
Chizzler does a fairly poor job of putting ducks, it's fair to say.
And so the result...
Joyous scenes! Unless you're Ray.
See you next time!
In the first episode of the best from the bunker, we meet hula-hooping hero Marawa the Amazing, and we welcome back Cherry, Ray and Steve as they compete in front of a live audience - but who will face the Gunge Tank of Doom?
