Welcome to Officially Amazing, The Best Of The Bunker.

0:00:070:00:11

Coming up, a powerful mix

0:00:110:00:13

of mind games and tea-time snacks in the bunker,

0:00:130:00:16

but first, an incredible back-flipping record attempt.

0:00:160:00:20

This is a burpee.

0:00:220:00:24

This is a backflip.

0:00:240:00:26

And this is Hadyn Wiseman,

0:00:260:00:29

accountant by day,

0:00:290:00:30

master of gymnastic tricking by night...

0:00:300:00:32

..and also sometimes by day.

0:00:340:00:35

We first met Hadyn in series four,

0:00:350:00:38

when he came within one jump of a twisted moon kick record.

0:00:380:00:42

Oh!

0:00:420:00:43

Agonisingly close, Hadyn.

0:00:430:00:46

But now Hadyn is bouncing and twisting and flipping back,

0:00:460:00:50

to attempt the record for...

0:00:500:00:53

Here are the rules.

0:00:550:00:57

During each burpee, the legs must jump forward

0:00:570:01:00

a distance of at least half the height of the competitor.

0:01:000:01:04

Each backflip should be landed with both feet on the ground.

0:01:040:01:08

And the record to beat is a dizzying 25 backflip burpees in 1 minute.

0:01:080:01:13

Because this is such a physically demanding record,

0:01:130:01:16

Hadyn can only manage one attempt, so the pressure is on.

0:01:160:01:22

Three, two, one...go.

0:01:220:01:25

Yes, come on!

0:01:250:01:26

That's one. Brilliant.

0:01:260:01:28

Two. He's off at a tremendous pace.

0:01:280:01:31

And solid landings every time.

0:01:310:01:34

Full extensions on every burpee too.

0:01:340:01:36

Great start, really strong.

0:01:360:01:39

Just wants to keep going.

0:01:400:01:42

He's turned!

0:01:420:01:43

Even with a turn, Hadyn is keeping a perfect rhythm,

0:01:430:01:47

so important in a challenge like this.

0:01:470:01:49

Doing one of these is incredibly difficult

0:01:490:01:52

and Hadyn is just keeping on going at the moment.

0:01:520:01:55

-Incredible!

-Come on, Hadyn, come on!

-Come on, come on!

-Come on!

0:01:550:01:59

Each jump is taking a monumental effort...

0:01:590:02:03

..and Hadyn is getting tired!

0:02:030:02:05

-Come on, you've got this!

-You can do it, you can do it!

0:02:050:02:08

Yes!

0:02:080:02:09

He is pushing his body to its absolute limits.

0:02:090:02:13

This is why he gave us that vomit warning earlier.

0:02:130:02:16

HADYN GRUNTS

0:02:160:02:17

-Carry on, carry on, keep going, keep going.

-Push it! Come on, Hadyn!

0:02:170:02:21

Was that one long enough?

0:02:230:02:25

I'm not sure, it might not count!

0:02:250:02:27

You can do it, you can do it.

0:02:270:02:29

-10 seconds.

-10 seconds left, Hadyn, come on, big push now, come on!

0:02:290:02:32

Oh, no, that burpee looked short too.

0:02:340:02:37

Has he got anything left?

0:02:370:02:38

-Come on!

-Come on, Hadyn.

0:02:380:02:40

-Time!

-Well done, well done.

0:02:410:02:43

Well done, Hadyn!

0:02:430:02:46

What a magnificent performance of strength, skill

0:02:460:02:50

and determination, but was it a world record?

0:02:500:02:53

Hadyn, you needed a minimum of 25 backflip burpees

0:02:530:02:58

in order to break the record today.

0:02:580:03:01

Now, in total, you performed 26 backflip burpees,

0:03:010:03:05

but, unfortunately, three of them were disqualified.

0:03:050:03:09

Oh, no! Ahh, OK.

0:03:090:03:12

That's disappointing.

0:03:120:03:14

-So, 23 valid... So close, Hadyn!

-I know I can do it.

0:03:140:03:19

Devastation again for Hadyn.

0:03:190:03:23

He did enough to break the record, but the sheer exhaustion

0:03:230:03:27

stopped him from fully extending for those last few burpees,

0:03:270:03:31

but it was still an awesome display and I'm sure we'll see him again.

0:03:310:03:35

Now, though, our three legends fight it out

0:03:360:03:38

in a slightly more sedate record in...

0:03:380:03:41

And today's delicious challenge that you can try at home

0:03:460:03:49

combines nerve, bravery and baking, it's...

0:03:490:03:53

That's right, it's...

0:03:560:03:57

Let's get some rules.

0:04:010:04:02

Biscuits must be commercially available,

0:04:020:04:05

they must be dunked into a drink of at least 70 degrees centigrade.

0:04:050:04:09

And to at least half their length, as marked here

0:04:090:04:13

by official adjudicator Shantha... in official icing!

0:04:130:04:17

The clock stops when the competitor finishes dunking the biscuit,

0:04:170:04:20

but for the attempt to count,

0:04:200:04:22

they must then walk one metre before eating it.

0:04:220:04:25

And if any part of the biscuit falls off before it's eaten,

0:04:260:04:30

the attempt is over.

0:04:300:04:32

The target for a new record is a minimum dunk time

0:04:320:04:35

of at least 30 seconds.

0:04:350:04:37

Ray is up first.

0:04:370:04:39

He has gone for the classic rich tea biscuit

0:04:390:04:42

and he will be dunking in a mug of caramel spiced apple tea.

0:04:420:04:46

Herbally heroic!

0:04:460:04:48

Time starts when Ray dunks.

0:04:480:04:51

And that is a deep dunk!

0:04:540:04:56

It only has to go in halfway!

0:04:560:04:59

My man has total confidence in the strength of that cookie.

0:04:590:05:03

You mean biscuit.

0:05:030:05:04

Sorry, biscuit.

0:05:040:05:06

Shantha's eyes are fixed on the biscuit,

0:05:060:05:08

scouring it for any breakage.

0:05:080:05:10

And from here,

0:05:110:05:13

it does look like some particles are eroding from the biscuit mainland.

0:05:130:05:17

Never mind that!

0:05:170:05:19

Look, it's visibly warping!

0:05:190:05:22

Save it, Ray! Save it before it's too late!

0:05:220:05:26

Is he ready to de-dunk?

0:05:260:05:29

Yes, the second stage begins!

0:05:290:05:31

But if that's a bit of broken bickie, Ray might be in trouble.

0:05:320:05:36

The clock has stopped.

0:05:380:05:40

What a wobble!

0:05:400:05:41

It's like a biscuit sponge.

0:05:410:05:44

Can the biscuit remain intact for the one-metre walk?

0:05:440:05:46

A biscuity flannel!

0:05:460:05:48

Great eating!

0:05:520:05:54

You deserved a biscuit for that performance, Ray!

0:05:540:05:58

Yes, incredible stealth as he kept things together before expertly

0:05:580:06:02

folding that waterlogged bickie into his grateful mouth.

0:06:020:06:05

But Shantha is checking the teacup.

0:06:060:06:09

Yes, as feared, her eagle eyes have identified

0:06:090:06:12

what looks like raise Ray's biscuity leftovers.

0:06:120:06:15

Could his attempt be invalid?

0:06:150:06:17

Now The Sizz and, as these exclusive images show,

0:06:190:06:23

Steve has road-tested numerous biscuits

0:06:230:06:26

in laboratory-like conditions,

0:06:260:06:28

finally selecting a Polish bickie he believes can set a huge record.

0:06:280:06:32

Therefore, Steve, seated comfortably with stopwatch in hand,

0:06:340:06:38

will be dunking for some time, so here are the highlights.

0:06:380:06:43

He is still dunking after over three minutes!

0:06:550:06:58

The bunker is spellbound.

0:07:000:07:03

For years, we will all remember the day we watched a man

0:07:030:07:07

dunking a biscuit in almost total silence for what feels like hours.

0:07:070:07:11

He wants to set a record that could stand for years.

0:07:110:07:16

If he succeeds and Cherry can't top it,

0:07:160:07:18

he will have a crucial lead going into the final event.

0:07:180:07:21

And here he goes!

0:07:230:07:24

TENSE MUSIC AND HEARTBEAT

0:07:240:07:28

Noooo!

0:07:350:07:38

Steve devours his Polish treat

0:07:460:07:49

and we must wait for Shantha's final word, but that also looked invalid.

0:07:490:07:54

Remember, it's not a valid dunk if your biscuit goes kerplunk.

0:07:540:08:00

Nearly four minutes of dunking ends in probable disaster,

0:08:000:08:04

so Cherry has a clear run.

0:08:040:08:06

As long as his biscuit stays intact and he eats it,

0:08:060:08:09

he will win and take a giant step towards a fifth competitive title.

0:08:090:08:14

Go!

0:08:150:08:17

That oaty biscuit has a one-sided chocolate covering

0:08:210:08:24

and is now immersed in an authentic British tea.

0:08:240:08:28

Cherry knows Britain is the home of dunking.

0:08:280:08:31

He could take it out now and claim that competitive point.

0:08:310:08:34

And that's why he is such a great champion.

0:08:340:08:38

He wants the points, but he yearns for the record too.

0:08:380:08:41

He even has someone updating him on his time.

0:08:410:08:45

Look at this fierce concentration!

0:08:470:08:50

Could he be forcing the biscuit to stay strong using mind power?

0:08:500:08:54

'Biscuit ho-o-o-o-o-old!'

0:08:540:08:58

Well, possibly.

0:08:580:09:00

It looks solid!

0:09:000:09:02

The competitive point must be his!

0:09:040:09:07

Oh, no! Oh!

0:09:120:09:16

What happened?! Did he trip,

0:09:160:09:17

was he shocked by the heat of the sodden biscuit?

0:09:170:09:21

Whatever it was, that bickie is in bits on the floor,

0:09:210:09:25

not digesting in his body,

0:09:250:09:27

meaning that attempt may also be invalid.

0:09:270:09:30

But only one person can tell us for sure.

0:09:300:09:33

Shantha.

0:09:330:09:34

Having failed to dunk and eat a biscuit properly,

0:09:340:09:41

I had to disqualify all competitors.

0:09:410:09:44

And there we have it.

0:09:470:09:49

All any of our competitors had to do was this...

0:09:490:09:54

..and the competitive point, if not a record, would have been theirs.

0:09:540:09:58

Instead, Steve and Cherry remain tied,

0:09:580:10:01

with just one event left.

0:10:010:10:03

But that's for next time!

0:10:030:10:05

Now meet Dom, an excited adult guest

0:10:060:10:09

and one of today's best bunker predictors.

0:10:090:10:13

Deciding to use the velveteen bag of fate,

0:10:130:10:16

he picks Steve to trot off to the gunge tank of doom

0:10:160:10:20

while Cherry and Ray attempt the record for...

0:10:200:10:23

As you'd expect from these two, they put in an incredibly quick time,

0:10:280:10:33

but is it faster than the target of 20 seconds?

0:10:330:10:36

-21.5...

-THEY GROAN

0:10:370:10:41

Oh, just too slow,

0:10:410:10:43

which means Sizzy gets a gunging!

0:10:430:10:46

Now, Dom is here with his children Alistair and Gemma,

0:10:460:10:49

so, of course, he'll let them push the button.

0:10:490:10:52

Nah, it seems not.

0:10:520:10:55

Oh, well, gunge time!

0:10:550:10:56

Superb Sizzy splodging done.

0:10:580:11:01

See you next time.

0:11:010:11:02

With everything hanging in the balance, our competitive heroes face a challenge that combines bravery and bakery. Also with outrageous acrobatics, and the dreaded Gunge Tank of Doom.
