Officially, officially, officially... Amazing!

0:00:020:00:05

Hello, and welcome to Officially Amazing: The Best Of The Bunker.

0:00:070:00:11

Coming up...

0:00:110:00:12

Hula Hooping heroics and a tonne of gloopy gunge.

0:00:120:00:15

But first, we welcome back our three legends in...

0:00:150:00:19

And I can reveal that today

0:00:240:00:26

our heroes will attempt the record for...

0:00:260:00:28

The custard cream, the bourbon, the ginger snap.

0:00:320:00:36

In the hands of our legends, the humble biscuit could be the means by

0:00:360:00:40

which they achieve record-breaking immortality!

0:00:400:00:44

Here are the rules.

0:00:450:00:47

Any commercially available cream-filled biscuits may be used,

0:00:480:00:51

sweet or savoury.

0:00:510:00:53

The biscuits must be placed on top of each other, individually,

0:00:540:00:58

to form a tower.

0:00:580:01:00

Once the 30 seconds are up,

0:01:000:01:02

the tower must stand for a further five seconds without falling.

0:01:020:01:05

And for the world record,

0:01:070:01:09

our heroes need to stack 20 cream-filled biscuits in 30 seconds.

0:01:090:01:14

So, who do you think will be the biscuit-stacking supremo?

0:01:140:01:19

The bunkerites have voted

0:01:190:01:20

and a whopping 44% of them

0:01:200:01:22

think Cherry will win.

0:01:220:01:24

Understandable confidence in the reigning champion who will

0:01:240:01:27

open the competition.

0:01:270:01:29

Mr Cherry, are you ready?

0:01:290:01:32

I am ready! Go!

0:01:320:01:34

Three, two, one!

0:01:340:01:37

Go!

0:01:370:01:39

And we're off!

0:01:390:01:40

A tremendous start from the big man.

0:01:420:01:44

Fingering those creamy treats with the authority you would

0:01:440:01:47

expect from a four-time champion.

0:01:470:01:50

CHANTING

0:01:500:01:54

But look at his hand shaking.

0:01:560:01:58

Is the pressure of a live audience getting to Cherry?

0:01:580:02:01

He is building at a phenomenal pace but that tower is swaying.

0:02:040:02:09

Oh...

0:02:090:02:11

-Oh...

-Four, three, two...

0:02:110:02:13

Oh, and it nearly went.

0:02:130:02:14

But some sublime biscuitry saves the day.

0:02:140:02:17

Two, one, stop!

0:02:170:02:19

Whoa! Did Cherry stack that last biscuit in time?

0:02:210:02:25

And, more importantly,

0:02:250:02:26

can his precarious pylon survive the five-second countdown?

0:02:260:02:30

Yes! Unbelievable!

0:02:310:02:34

A magnificent display of world-class biscuit-stacking.

0:02:340:02:39

Soon to be beaten by my man US Ray!

0:02:390:02:42

-I hope.

-Go!

0:02:430:02:45

CHANTING

0:02:450:02:46

A confident start.

0:02:460:02:47

That is three stacked and none eaten.

0:02:470:02:49

Impressive.

0:02:490:02:51

Great work, Ray!

0:02:510:02:53

The view from biscuit cam is that of a perfectly aligned tower.

0:02:530:02:57

Sadly, the view from every other cam is of some kind of miniature

0:02:570:03:00

zigzagging monstrosity.

0:03:000:03:02

OK, so it's not perfect.

0:03:030:03:06

But it's still standing.

0:03:060:03:07

Ooh! Think steady thoughts, America!

0:03:100:03:13

What's he doing?

0:03:130:03:15

He's stopped before the 30 seconds is up.

0:03:150:03:17

He had no choice.

0:03:180:03:20

When your tower is teetering on the brink of toppling,

0:03:200:03:23

you stop topping that tower.

0:03:230:03:25

Wise words.

0:03:250:03:26

..two...one...stop!

0:03:260:03:29

And the leaning Tower of...

0:03:290:03:32

..Ray, survives.

0:03:320:03:34

Step forward Steve and his keks.

0:03:340:03:36

That's German for biscuit.

0:03:360:03:38

And feast your eyes on how meticulously Steve has laid

0:03:380:03:42

out his keks.

0:03:420:03:43

Not only that, he has chosen two different sized keks for his stack.

0:03:430:03:47

Tactical genius.

0:03:470:03:49

Go!

0:03:490:03:51

Poetry in motion already.

0:03:510:03:52

Just look how unfazed the Sizzler was

0:03:530:03:56

by that early biscuit misplacement.

0:03:560:03:59

He's a hawk-eyed speedster.

0:03:590:04:02

Homing in on the next tasty target as he picks up each cookie.

0:04:020:04:06

The Siz means biz...

0:04:060:04:08

..ness.

0:04:080:04:09

And just look at the roar of the home crowd!

0:04:090:04:11

-CHANTING:

-Sizzler! Sizzler!

0:04:110:04:15

They're driving him on...

0:04:150:04:17

..one German biscuit at a time.

0:04:170:04:21

And he's on to the small ones.

0:04:210:04:23

First-class cookie construction.

0:04:230:04:25

Stop!

0:04:250:04:26

And not a flutter during the five-second countdown.

0:04:260:04:29

A superbly sturdy stack, and doesn't he know it!

0:04:310:04:35

We've seen three towering performances.

0:04:350:04:38

-Well, two.

-Shh!

0:04:380:04:40

But did anyone reach the world record target of 20?

0:04:400:04:43

Only official adjudicator Shantha can tell us.

0:04:430:04:46

Do we have a new world record?

0:04:460:04:48

Yes, we do.

0:04:480:04:49

Yes! Oh!

0:04:490:04:51

And I can confirm that two of our competitors broke the record target.

0:04:520:04:58

But who has taken the biscuit and made history, nay, biscuitry?

0:04:590:05:07

-Shantha?

-In third place...

0:05:070:05:10

..with a total of 12 biscuits, is...

0:05:100:05:15

..Ray.

0:05:170:05:18

Our first celebration of last place from Team USA of the series.

0:05:180:05:23

Beautiful.

0:05:230:05:24

And in first place,

0:05:260:05:28

with a record-breaking total of 26 biscuit, is...

0:05:280:05:33

..Mr Cherry!

0:05:370:05:39

CHEERING

0:05:390:05:45

A perfect start from the champion.

0:05:450:05:47

One event, one world record.

0:05:470:05:49

HE ROARS

0:05:490:05:50

That last-second biscuit took Cherry out of reach, beating Sizzler

0:05:500:05:55

by just one to start where he left off -

0:05:550:05:58

at the top of the leaderboard.

0:05:580:06:00

Just like 44% of our audience knew he would.

0:06:000:06:04

Meet Hula Hooping hero Marawa The Amazing.

0:06:040:06:08

Marawa already holds five Hula Hooping world records.

0:06:090:06:13

She can Hula 200 hoops at the same time.

0:06:130:06:17

She already holds the record for the fastest 100 metres hula

0:06:170:06:21

and today, she's going for...

0:06:210:06:23

Marawa the Amazing, welcome to Officially Amazing.

0:06:270:06:29

Thank you for having me.

0:06:290:06:30

As someone who is not very good at Hula Hooping

0:06:300:06:32

where might they be going wrong?

0:06:320:06:34

-With the hoop.

-Right.

0:06:340:06:35

-It's always the hoop's fault.

-Always the hoop.

-It's not you.

0:06:350:06:38

When you want to spin it and get it going,

0:06:380:06:40

a lot of people think they have to do some weird like,

0:06:400:06:42

bend their knees and move their arms around and go...

0:06:420:06:45

It's a very small, little, tiny push.

0:06:450:06:47

And it's actually forwards and backwards,

0:06:470:06:48

not round and round in a big circle.

0:06:480:06:50

-Ah, so the hoop goes round, but you don't.

-Yes.

0:06:500:06:52

So Marawa is just checking out the course

0:06:520:06:54

to see if it's up to spec for her.

0:06:540:06:57

Obviously, she wants to make sure there are no divots or anything.

0:06:570:06:59

-How's it looking, all right?

-Yeah.

0:06:590:07:02

I mean, obviously, she will be going faster than that

0:07:020:07:05

and there is unlikely to be a dog on the course.

0:07:050:07:07

I will tell you this.

0:07:070:07:09

I ran it at full pelt without a Hula Hoop and it took me 7.5 seconds.

0:07:090:07:13

And she has got to do the whole thing with

0:07:130:07:16

a Hula Hoop in 10 or under.

0:07:160:07:18

It's going to be tough.

0:07:180:07:20

Well, there can be no hula without some rula...s.

0:07:210:07:23

The hoop must be revolving before Marawa crosses the start line

0:07:260:07:30

and must keep revolving throughout.

0:07:300:07:32

She can't touch the Hula Hoop with her hands

0:07:340:07:36

and if the hoop drops to the floor, the attempt is over.

0:07:360:07:40

For the world record,

0:07:400:07:42

Marawa has to hula 50 metres in just 10 seconds or less.

0:07:420:07:46

Can she do it?

0:07:460:07:48

Well, our bunker brigade have made their predictions

0:07:480:07:51

and a huge 84% of them think she will.

0:07:510:07:54

What do you think? Let's find out.

0:07:540:07:56

-Marawa, are you ready to go for hooping glory?

-Yeah!

0:07:560:08:00

For the record...

0:08:000:08:01

..three, two, one, go!

0:08:050:08:09

It's a fantastic start.

0:08:090:08:12

She is flat-out sprinting

0:08:120:08:13

and yet the hoop is gliding round without even a wobble.

0:08:130:08:16

Sublime skills!

0:08:160:08:18

She's making it look easy but check out Marawa's stomach muscles,

0:08:200:08:24

they're working to the absolute limit.

0:08:240:08:26

This is fast, this is really strong.

0:08:270:08:30

KLAXON Brilliant!

0:08:300:08:32

Great race, lovely stuff!

0:08:320:08:34

That was ridiculously fast.

0:08:340:08:36

Let's watch again without the slow-mo.

0:08:360:08:39

Go!

0:08:390:08:41

No, I still can't figure out how she does it.

0:08:410:08:44

She is guffawing in the face of gravity.

0:08:440:08:47

Brilliant!

0:08:470:08:48

Incredible.

0:08:480:08:49

But was it faster than the 10 seconds she needs for a record?

0:08:490:08:53

Over to official adjudicator Mark.

0:08:530:08:55

It was 8.76 seconds.

0:08:590:09:00

-It's a brand-new Guinness world record, thank you!

-Yes, yes!

0:09:000:09:03

Cue the celebration! Whoo!

0:09:030:09:05

8.76 seconds.

0:09:050:09:08

She got the record with over one second to spare.

0:09:080:09:11

Heavenly Hula Hooping.

0:09:110:09:13

-Congratulations.

-Yay!

0:09:130:09:15

THEY CHEER

0:09:150:09:16

Marawa, you're not just amazing, you're officially amazing.

0:09:160:09:21

Just like the 84% of our audience who knew you'd do it.

0:09:210:09:25

Including Jay, who gets a hi-fi from his hero, me!

0:09:250:09:30

Dreams do come true!

0:09:300:09:33

And what is this? It's a gunge tank, but who's going in it?

0:09:330:09:38

Well, meet Andrew, one of today's bunker crew who joins us

0:09:380:09:42

for the record for...

0:09:420:09:43

And he has a very special task.

0:09:460:09:49

Now, you need to make a choice.

0:09:490:09:51

Two of our competitors are going to be stationed here,

0:09:510:09:53

hooking ducks and the other one will face...

0:09:530:09:56

..the gunge tank of doom!

0:09:560:09:58

Which of our three plucky competitive legends are you going to

0:10:020:10:07

choose to meet their possible fate?

0:10:070:10:08

Our brave warriors are reduced to begging

0:10:110:10:13

in a desperate bid to avoid the gunge. Pitiful.

0:10:130:10:17

Ray.

0:10:170:10:18

Oh! US Ray!

0:10:180:10:20

LAUGHTER

0:10:200:10:23

-Andrew, have you got any last words for Ray?

-I'm sorry.

0:10:230:10:26

Cherry and Sizzler combining powers at last.

0:10:270:10:31

I have dreamt of this moment.

0:10:310:10:32

I shall call them Chizzler!

0:10:320:10:34

Meanwhile, Ray's excitement about being first in the gunge tank

0:10:350:10:39

is palpable.

0:10:390:10:40

Can Chizzler save him from a gunging by breaking the record?

0:10:400:10:44

Chizzler does a fairly poor job of putting ducks, it's fair to say.

0:10:440:10:47

And so the result...

0:10:470:10:49

Joyous scenes! Unless you're Ray.

0:10:490:10:52

See you next time!

0:10:520:10:53

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?
