# Officially, Officially Officially Amazing! #
Welcome to the final Officially Amazing - The Best Of The Bunker.
First up, it's time to discover who'll
be our Series 6 champion in...
Previously on Officially Competitive...
After 14 brave battles,
and five obliterated world records,
Cherry and Steve are tied at the top of the leaderboard,
and the entire competition will be decided
today as they battle for this understated thing of beauty.
ANGELIC CHOIR SINGS
-A win for Cherry means a fifth consecutive title.
A win for Steve means a first-ever championship victory.
And a win for Ray...
..is impossible, surely, as they're tackling the record for...
Here are the rules.
Ten marshmallows must be constructed into a pyramid thusly.
The marshmallows must be moved a distance of 15cm from starting
point to stacking point.
And only the chopsticks can touch the marshmallows.
If they build a marshmallow pyramid
in 35 seconds or under, it's a world record.
Up first is my tiny Terrahawk, US Ray.
A win for Ray today and the overall competition ends in a tie.
But he is rubbish with chopsticks!
Three, two, one, go!
Hang on, Ray seems practically proficient!
And look at that!
He manoeuvred that meandering marshmallow like a chopstick pro.
I just hope he's remembered the correct pyramid configuration.
It's looking promising.
I'm impressed, and I'm not afraid to show it.
-Ray! Go on, Ray.
-Let's go. Go.
-No! I jinxed him!
Just be glad you didn't make him knock his pyramid over.
A staggering competent display
of chopstickery by my mini marshmallow man!
But this is where it gets electrifying,
as the main contenders take to the stage,
starting with four-time champ Cherry.
The great man has reset the table so he can build sideways.
He looks focused. This for the title.
Three, two, one, go.
It's a speedy start, and the shaking hands that have blighted
Cherry's season are looking almost steady.
And just look at the confident way he nudged that marshmallow
away from the yellow line.
Disqualification today would spell disaster.
Cherry's pyramid is ordered and precise.
This is magnificent marshmallow mounting.
Ohhh, Cherry tussled with a toppler there.
That looked fast, but Cherry seems strangely subdued.
He's thrown down the marshmallow gauntlet.
But does he think his performance is beatable?
Dare the Sizzler dream of actually winning this?
Three, two, one, go!
Hang on, what kind of marshmallow is that?
Steve scoured the world for a cuboid marshmallow,
and these are from Malta.
Could this masterstroke win him the title?
Oh, he fumbled number five!
But Sizzler recovers with aplomb.
Is that bottom layer going to hold out, though?
I hope so! Five series of trying to beat Cherry.
Is this a record-breaking, nay, championship-winning performance?
A dangerous sway right there at the end,
but Sizzler's pyramid stands firm.
So here we go, everything has led to this moment.
Did anyone break that 35-second target, and, more importantly,
who is about to be crowned as Series 6 champion?
Over to the official adjudicator.
Shantha, do we have a record?
Oh, excellent news! We're finishing Officially Competitive
with a flourish! But the all-important question remains.
Who got that record
and therefore who got the final competitive point?
Well, I can confirm that all three competitors broke the record target.
Round of applause!
What a way to end the competition!
In third place, with a time of 30.38 seconds...
Well done, Ray! Well done!
He came in third and last.
Great improvement, man.
But let's not forget,
Ray just broke the world record in a chopstick event!
A proud non-victory for the USA.
But this is it.
Whoever has the record takes the Officially Competitive title.
And in first place, with a time of 11.25 seconds...
Absolutely annihilating the record target!
The Sizzler has done it!
A first-ever Officially Competitive title.
And look what it means to him!
No-one thought the great Cherry could ever be beaten,
but with a succession of stunning performances,
-Steve has finally found glory.
-Sir Sizzlin' Steve, we salute you!
It's been a long time in coming, but I tell you what,
it's been worth the wait.
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you your Officially Competitive
Series 6 champion, Sizzlin' Steve!
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
MUSIC: Land Of Hope And Glory by Elgar
But our new champion has no time to relax...
..as Tatyana here might have a little job for him.
She's one of our top predictors in the Bunker audience today,
and, as it's the finale, she gets to make not one but two big decisions
as we attempt the record for...
One of those decisions is which two of our competitors will be
taking part in the day's final challenge.
The other is deciding between Albert Jackson and I as to who goes into...
..the Gunge Tank of Doom.
Which two of our competitors do you want to compete in the final event?
Steve and Ray.
-OK! Steve and Ray.
-Steve and Ray!
Now time for the big decision.
..between myself and Albert Jackson,
who would you like to send to their gungy fate? Please tell us now.
Thank you, Tatyana!
If Sizzle and Ray don't break the record, Ben gets a gunging.
So fingers crossed for failure.
Oh, that IS nice...
Steve and Ray try their best - I think -
but fall 20 leapfrogs short of the target,
which means joy for everyone. Barring me, seemingly.
MUSIC: Ode To Joy by Beethoven
I can watch this all day!
Sizzlin' Steve ends this series shrouded in glory,
and I end up smothered in hunger. But what a series it's been.
# Well, we've seen jester dogs skipping
# Burpee backflipping
# And Cyr-wheel rotation
# Record-breaking horseboard jumping
# And rugby-ball-catching elation
# Lee was the king of wakesurfing
# There were motorcycle supermen
# We saw the fastest hula-hooping
# And the majesty of Bendy Ben
# John Walker didn't miss a thing
# And what about that leapfrog juggling?
# The Moffatts proved to be unreal
# At driving their cars on two wheels
# In our new secret record-breaking bunker
# Three legends fought once more
# There were domino falls
# There were flying Ping-Pong balls
# There was biscuit on the floor
# Just look at Ray's jumping
# And at Cherry's speedy marble moving
# And would you believe we saw Sizzlin' Steve
# Crowned our new competitive king?
# Rebecca Hill, Donovan as they spun
# Acropolis skipped using humans
# As always, we've seen some amazing stuff
# And just in case all that wasn't enough
# We had a dog that was good at catching
# Incredible synchro ice skating
# High-bar giants, egg placing
# And everyone got a good gunging
# They are all Officially
# And you could be Officially
# In a world that is
# Officially Amazing! #
