Hello and welcome to Officially Amazing -
The Best Of The Bunker.
Coming up, I get involved in a mind and body bending record attempt.
But first, the tensest record the bunker has ever seen in...
Today's record is...
Here are the rules.
Standard-sized dominoes must be stood one at a time
using one hand only.
Dominoes must be placed within a designated A3-sized area.
Once the minute is up, the competitors
must topple the dominoes.
And any domino still standing will not count.
For the record, our idols need to topple a colossal 75 dominoes.
My dinky domino-ist goes first.
Three, two, one - go!
And he's off.
This is bombastic balancing.
And he has the rock-steady hand of a champion domino stacker.
Ray has nerves of steel-coated steel.
He's flying here.
And he's nailed the tricky second bend too.
Perfect precision with every domin...
One minute misplacement was all it took for total wipe-out.
None of those dominoes will count.
But he's still got time.
Three, two, one - stop!
Ray builds a consolation row,
but that tiny topple will not bring glory.
Thankfully for Ray, attempt two goes a lot better -
no mistakes and a lengthy line.
Five, four, three,
two, one - stop.
Now, the moment of truth.
A titanic tumble from Ray.
Can Cherry do better?
Mr Cherry, are you ready?
Is a magic electro hand within the rules?
Yep, scientists have proved it has no domino-toppling powers.
Three, two, one -
Cherry's electro hand is quivering with nerves.
That is going to be a real danger
in such a precarious record.
Even the dominoes are shaking.
But Domino Cam displays the face of a man who's determined to succeed.
So long as he doesn't blow his dominoes over.
Five, four, three,
two, one - stop!
Agonising! Cherry's topple was unstoppable
until it stopped three dominoes from the end.
They won't count.
But the champion gathers himself
and his second attempt also goes a lot better.
-This is huge,
but will it topple?
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
A dazzling domino display.
But if there is one man born to achieve world domino-tion...
-..it's the Sizz-Master.
Steve's lining them up the wrong way.
It's a tactical master plan.
Was that part of the plan?
No. But The Sizzler will not be beaten.
He's right back up again, building another epic...
He's going for pace over precision.
It's leaving his dominoes wobbly
and that equals disaster.
But like a tenacious tornado
who stacks dominoes,
he just keeps on going.
And now he's building a double track.
This one domino will topple two chains.
Steve has turned disaster into...
A third collapse and no time to recover.
Three, two, one - stop.
Steve's heading for last place.
One more attempt and it needs to be big.
And it is.
Sizzler again gambles on creating a split in his domino line,
and this time...
Three, two, one - stop.
-If this works, Steve... Come on!
We've seen three titanic topples,
but who demolished the most dominoes?
And did anyone get near that record of 75?
We need an official adjudication.
Shantha, do we have a record?
But there's still the all-important competitive point to play for.
Shantha, who's got it?
I can reveal that there were just two dominoes
between third and first place.
Never have we ever been so close.
So, in third place,
with a total of 37...
..is Mr Cherry.
This could blow the competition wide open!
And in first place...
..with a total of 39,
so winning by just one domino is...
Domi-yes! Not domi-no, domi-yes!
A hard-fought victory
for The Sizzler
puts him joint with Cherry
at the top of the leaderboard
with only two events left.
Our heroes will be back later on,
but first, time for me to limber up.
I've been perfecting my contortion skills
for the return of our next guest.
No need to get yourself into a twist -
all it takes is a bit of practice.
And it's amazing what you can achieve!
Today, we welcome back our favourite elasticated enigma -
contortionist Claudia Hughes.
We first met Claudia in series five,
when she came within two seconds of the record for...
And today, this ludicrously limber lady is back
and determined to crack the record.
Here are the rules.
Claudia must place each egg fully in each cup.
She can use her feet only.
And if she gets six eggs in cups
within 27.42 seconds,
it's a world record.
Claudia, welcome back to Officially Amazing.
-Why, thank you.
-Thanks for being so flexible.
Just a minute, getting comfy.
How's training been going?
Have you been breaking the record?
Yeah, very, very close. Not quite, not quite.
Despite that revelation,
a massive 88% of the bunker crew
think Claudia will get the record this time.
What do you think?
Nice. That's what we want to see.
And that's two perfectly placed eggs.
What talented tootsies!
Yes, it's a little plop and roll.
Oh, no - there's trouble on the fourth.
It's all too tight for her toes.
And a tiny nudge has sent
egg number six off on a roll.
That's five in,
but she's off on an egg hunt
for the final one.
Yes! Impeccable egg work.
Could Claudia have done it in under 27.42 seconds?
It's a time of 30.96 seconds.
Just three and a half seconds away from the record.
Can Claudia conquer her eggy Everest
on the next attempt?
This time, she's placed the cups further apart,
so there's less chance of her feet disturbing the other eggs.
Could this revolutionary tactic help her dip below
that magical 27-second mark?
This looks fast, but she can't afford any mistakes.
Ooh. They're all in!
You see, that again felt fast to me.
-I think the spacing definitely helped.
-That definitely helped.
-That one egg,
just got caught on a flailing toe
-and trickled away, didn't it?
-Will it have affected the record attempt?
-That might have cost me.
-That was your fastest attempt.
It was a time of 20...
..5.45! It's a brand-new Guinness World Records title!
Oh, yes! Oh, yes!
Claudia never gave up
and finally has a world record to prove it.
Now meet Kristoffer, one of our best predictors
in the bunker today
and the man charged with deciding
who will attempt the record for...
The bunker is in a Christmassy mood,
even when Kristoffer puts Cherry into the gunge tank of doom.
Let him go, Kristoffer, let him go.
Ray and Steve then embark upon their cracker crusade.
It's quick, but is it quicker than the 20-seconds target?
Today, you managed...
Ding dong, merrily we end on a high,
as they break the record and save Cherry from a gunging.
See you next time!
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?
