Hello and welcome to Officially Amazing -

0:00:070:00:09

The Best Of The Bunker.

0:00:090:00:11

Coming up, I get involved in a mind and body bending record attempt.

0:00:110:00:16

But first, the tensest record the bunker has ever seen in...

0:00:170:00:22

Today's record is...

0:00:260:00:28

Here are the rules.

0:00:310:00:33

Standard-sized dominoes must be stood one at a time

0:00:330:00:36

using one hand only.

0:00:360:00:38

Dominoes must be placed within a designated A3-sized area.

0:00:380:00:43

Once the minute is up, the competitors

0:00:430:00:45

must topple the dominoes.

0:00:450:00:47

And any domino still standing will not count.

0:00:470:00:50

For the record, our idols need to topple a colossal 75 dominoes.

0:00:500:00:56

My dinky domino-ist goes first.

0:00:560:00:59

Three, two, one - go!

0:00:590:01:02

And he's off.

0:01:040:01:05

This is bombastic balancing.

0:01:090:01:11

And he has the rock-steady hand of a champion domino stacker.

0:01:130:01:18

Ray has nerves of steel-coated steel.

0:01:180:01:21

He's flying here.

0:01:210:01:23

And he's nailed the tricky second bend too.

0:01:260:01:29

Perfect precision with every domin...

0:01:320:01:34

No!

0:01:340:01:35

One minute misplacement was all it took for total wipe-out.

0:01:370:01:42

None of those dominoes will count.

0:01:420:01:44

But he's still got time.

0:01:440:01:46

Three, two, one - stop!

0:01:460:01:49

Ray builds a consolation row,

0:01:490:01:50

but that tiny topple will not bring glory.

0:01:500:01:54

Thankfully for Ray, attempt two goes a lot better -

0:01:540:01:58

no mistakes and a lengthy line.

0:01:580:02:00

Five, four, three,

0:02:000:02:03

two, one - stop.

0:02:030:02:06

-Yes!

-Topple.

0:02:060:02:07

Now, the moment of truth.

0:02:070:02:09

Boom!

0:02:100:02:12

A titanic tumble from Ray.

0:02:140:02:17

Can Cherry do better?

0:02:170:02:18

Mr Cherry, are you ready?

0:02:180:02:21

-Magic hand.

-Magic hand.

0:02:210:02:23

Is a magic electro hand within the rules?

0:02:300:02:33

Yep, scientists have proved it has no domino-toppling powers.

0:02:330:02:38

Three, two, one -

0:02:400:02:42

go!

0:02:420:02:44

Cherry's electro hand is quivering with nerves.

0:02:460:02:49

That is going to be a real danger

0:02:520:02:54

in such a precarious record.

0:02:540:02:56

Even the dominoes are shaking.

0:02:560:02:59

But Domino Cam displays the face of a man who's determined to succeed.

0:02:590:03:03

So long as he doesn't blow his dominoes over.

0:03:050:03:08

Five, four, three,

0:03:080:03:11

two, one - stop!

0:03:110:03:14

Topple.

0:03:150:03:17

Oh!

0:03:210:03:22

Agonising! Cherry's topple was unstoppable

0:03:220:03:26

until it stopped three dominoes from the end.

0:03:260:03:28

They won't count.

0:03:280:03:31

But the champion gathers himself

0:03:310:03:33

and his second attempt also goes a lot better.

0:03:330:03:37

Stop!

0:03:370:03:38

-Topple.

-This is huge,

0:03:380:03:40

but will it topple?

0:03:400:03:43

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:03:460:03:48

A dazzling domino display.

0:03:500:03:52

But if there is one man born to achieve world domino-tion...

0:03:520:03:57

-Go!

-..it's the Sizz-Master.

0:03:570:03:59

Steve's lining them up the wrong way.

0:03:590:04:02

It's a tactical master plan.

0:04:020:04:05

Was that part of the plan?

0:04:060:04:08

No. But The Sizzler will not be beaten.

0:04:080:04:11

He's right back up again, building another epic...

0:04:110:04:14

Argh!

0:04:140:04:15

He's going for pace over precision.

0:04:150:04:18

It's leaving his dominoes wobbly

0:04:180:04:20

and that equals disaster.

0:04:200:04:22

But like a tenacious tornado

0:04:220:04:25

who stacks dominoes,

0:04:250:04:27

he just keeps on going.

0:04:270:04:29

And now he's building a double track.

0:04:290:04:31

This one domino will topple two chains.

0:04:310:04:35

Steve has turned disaster into...

0:04:370:04:40

A catastrophe!

0:04:400:04:42

A third collapse and no time to recover.

0:04:420:04:46

Three, two, one - stop.

0:04:460:04:49

Topple.

0:04:490:04:51

Steve's heading for last place.

0:04:520:04:55

One more attempt and it needs to be big.

0:04:550:04:58

And it is.

0:04:580:05:00

Sizzler again gambles on creating a split in his domino line,

0:05:000:05:04

and this time...

0:05:040:05:06

Three, two, one - stop.

0:05:060:05:10

-If this works, Steve... Come on!

-Topple.

0:05:100:05:12

Oh!

0:05:150:05:17

Yes!

0:05:170:05:18

We've seen three titanic topples,

0:05:180:05:21

but who demolished the most dominoes?

0:05:210:05:24

And did anyone get near that record of 75?

0:05:240:05:27

We need an official adjudication.

0:05:280:05:30

Shantha, do we have a record?

0:05:300:05:32

No.

0:05:340:05:35

THEY GROAN

0:05:350:05:37

But there's still the all-important competitive point to play for.

0:05:370:05:41

Shantha, who's got it?

0:05:410:05:43

I can reveal that there were just two dominoes

0:05:430:05:48

between third and first place.

0:05:480:05:50

Never have we ever been so close.

0:05:500:05:53

So, in third place,

0:05:530:05:55

with a total of 37...

0:05:550:05:57

..is Mr Cherry.

0:05:590:06:00

This could blow the competition wide open!

0:06:020:06:06

And in first place...

0:06:060:06:08

..with a total of 39,

0:06:080:06:11

so winning by just one domino is...

0:06:110:06:15

..Steve.

0:06:180:06:20

Whoo! Hey!

0:06:200:06:22

Sizzler!

0:06:220:06:23

Domi-yes! Not domi-no, domi-yes!

0:06:230:06:26

A hard-fought victory

0:06:320:06:33

for The Sizzler

0:06:330:06:34

puts him joint with Cherry

0:06:340:06:36

at the top of the leaderboard

0:06:360:06:37

with only two events left.

0:06:370:06:40

Our heroes will be back later on,

0:06:400:06:41

but first, time for me to limber up.

0:06:410:06:44

I've been perfecting my contortion skills

0:06:460:06:49

for the return of our next guest.

0:06:490:06:51

Argh!

0:06:510:06:53

Ugh!

0:06:530:06:55

No need to get yourself into a twist -

0:06:550:06:57

all it takes is a bit of practice.

0:06:570:06:58

And it's amazing what you can achieve!

0:06:590:07:02

Oh, dear.

0:07:020:07:03

Today, we welcome back our favourite elasticated enigma -

0:07:050:07:09

contortionist Claudia Hughes.

0:07:090:07:12

We first met Claudia in series five,

0:07:120:07:14

when she came within two seconds of the record for...

0:07:140:07:17

-29.47.

-Aw!

0:07:230:07:26

And today, this ludicrously limber lady is back

0:07:260:07:30

and determined to crack the record.

0:07:300:07:33

Here are the rules.

0:07:330:07:34

Claudia must place each egg fully in each cup.

0:07:340:07:38

She can use her feet only.

0:07:380:07:40

And if she gets six eggs in cups

0:07:400:07:43

within 27.42 seconds,

0:07:430:07:45

it's a world record.

0:07:450:07:46

Claudia, welcome back to Officially Amazing.

0:07:470:07:50

-Why, thank you.

-Thanks for being so flexible.

0:07:500:07:52

Just a minute, getting comfy.

0:07:530:07:55

How's training been going?

0:07:550:07:57

Have you been breaking the record?

0:07:570:07:59

Yeah, very, very close. Not quite, not quite.

0:07:590:08:03

Despite that revelation,

0:08:030:08:05

a massive 88% of the bunker crew

0:08:050:08:08

think Claudia will get the record this time.

0:08:080:08:11

What do you think?

0:08:110:08:12

Go.

0:08:120:08:13

Nice. That's what we want to see.

0:08:150:08:18

Yes.

0:08:190:08:21

And that's two perfectly placed eggs.

0:08:210:08:23

What talented tootsies!

0:08:230:08:25

Yes, it's a little plop and roll.

0:08:270:08:29

Oh, no - there's trouble on the fourth.

0:08:290:08:33

It's all too tight for her toes.

0:08:330:08:35

And a tiny nudge has sent

0:08:350:08:36

egg number six off on a roll.

0:08:360:08:39

That's five in,

0:08:440:08:45

but she's off on an egg hunt

0:08:450:08:47

for the final one.

0:08:470:08:48

Yes! Impeccable egg work.

0:08:500:08:53

Could Claudia have done it in under 27.42 seconds?

0:08:530:08:58

It's a time of 30.96 seconds.

0:08:580:09:01

Oh!

0:09:010:09:03

Just three and a half seconds away from the record.

0:09:030:09:06

Can Claudia conquer her eggy Everest

0:09:060:09:09

on the next attempt?

0:09:090:09:11

Go.

0:09:110:09:12

This time, she's placed the cups further apart,

0:09:120:09:15

so there's less chance of her feet disturbing the other eggs.

0:09:150:09:19

Could this revolutionary tactic help her dip below

0:09:210:09:25

that magical 27-second mark?

0:09:250:09:28

This looks fast, but she can't afford any mistakes.

0:09:280:09:32

Ooh. They're all in!

0:09:350:09:36

You see, that again felt fast to me.

0:09:360:09:38

-Yeah.

-I think the spacing definitely helped.

0:09:380:09:40

-That definitely helped.

-That one egg,

0:09:400:09:43

just got caught on a flailing toe

0:09:430:09:45

-and trickled away, didn't it?

-I know.

0:09:450:09:47

-Will it have affected the record attempt?

-That might have cost me.

0:09:470:09:51

Mark?

0:09:510:09:52

-That was your fastest attempt.

-OK.

0:09:530:09:56

It was a time of 20...

0:09:560:09:57

..5.45! It's a brand-new Guinness World Records title!

0:09:590:10:02

Oh, yes! Oh, yes!

0:10:020:10:05

Claudia never gave up

0:10:050:10:07

and finally has a world record to prove it.

0:10:070:10:09

Eggs-traordinary scenes!

0:10:090:10:12

Now meet Kristoffer, one of our best predictors

0:10:120:10:16

in the bunker today

0:10:160:10:17

and the man charged with deciding

0:10:170:10:19

who will attempt the record for...

0:10:190:10:21

The bunker is in a Christmassy mood,

0:10:240:10:27

even when Kristoffer puts Cherry into the gunge tank of doom.

0:10:270:10:31

Oh! Kristoffer!

0:10:310:10:36

Oh!

0:10:360:10:38

Kristoffer!

0:10:380:10:40

Let him go, Kristoffer, let him go.

0:10:400:10:43

Ray and Steve then embark upon their cracker crusade.

0:10:430:10:46

It's quick, but is it quicker than the 20-seconds target?

0:10:460:10:50

Today, you managed...

0:10:500:10:52

..16.26 seconds.

0:10:550:10:58

Ding dong, merrily we end on a high,

0:10:590:11:02

as they break the record and save Cherry from a gunging.

0:11:020:11:06

See you next time!

0:11:060:11:08

Featuring a world-record attempt from an incredible contortionist, and in the bunker there's a nail-biting competitive domino rally. Finally, will the Gunge Tank of Doom claim another victim?
