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

0:00:070:00:11

Very shortly, our Competitive Legends

0:00:110:00:13

will be battling it out for another record.

0:00:130:00:16

And there will be gunge.

0:00:160:00:18

But first, this incredible canine.

0:00:180:00:21

Meet Jessica, the jumping Jack Russell.

0:00:210:00:25

She can dance.

0:00:250:00:27

She can barrel walk.

0:00:270:00:28

She can skateboard.

0:00:280:00:30

She can drive!

0:00:300:00:32

And she can impersonate royalty with her best mate, Jacob.

0:00:320:00:36

But today, this talented terrier

0:00:370:00:39

will team up with her human sidekick, Rachael.

0:00:390:00:42

To attempt the record for...

0:00:420:00:44

How did you discover that this was one of her skills?

0:00:490:00:52

I was playing with her, just asking her to jump without skipping.

0:00:520:00:55

And then I thought, "She's jumping quite high, I'm going

0:00:550:00:58

-"to give it a go."

-So basically, you were there with a rope anyway...

0:00:580:01:00

Well, I started off with a bit of sausage in my hand.

0:01:000:01:04

Just seeing if she could jump up for the sausage.

0:01:040:01:06

Many great stories start that way.

0:01:060:01:08

Jessica, don't take this the wrong way,

0:01:080:01:10

but you have got quite little legs.

0:01:100:01:12

Is that going to make things harder?

0:01:120:01:14

They might be small, Shires, but I've got four of them.

0:01:140:01:18

Ha-ha-ha!

0:01:180:01:20

So, the record at the moment stands at a gargantuan 51 in a minute.

0:01:200:01:26

-That's a lot, isn't it?

-That's a lot of skips, yeah.

0:01:260:01:28

So, what have you been averaging in training, then?

0:01:280:01:32

In training, we've been doing about 60, 64 skips.

0:01:320:01:35

-Ooh, so breaking the record?

-Yeah.

0:01:350:01:37

Of course, in a pressure environment like this, anything can change.

0:01:370:01:40

That's right, anything can happen on the day.

0:01:400:01:42

-I often get my foot caught in the rope!

-Oh, really?

-Yeah!

0:01:420:01:46

Before Jessica and Rachael jump to it, let's get the rules.

0:01:460:01:49

Jessica and Rachael must jump simultaneously over the same rope.

0:01:510:01:55

If either of them touches the rope while jumping,

0:01:550:01:58

that skip will not count.

0:01:580:02:00

And the record to beat

0:02:000:02:02

is a flabbergasting 51 skips in one minute.

0:02:020:02:06

Despite this mammoth target, back in the Bunker,

0:02:060:02:10

88% of our perceptive predictors reckon this pairing

0:02:100:02:13

will be jumping with record-breaking joy.

0:02:130:02:16

But do you agree at home?

0:02:160:02:18

The time will start when Rachael begins the first skip.

0:02:180:02:21

Stay, Jessie. Stay.

0:02:210:02:23

Ready?

0:02:230:02:25

And they're off!

0:02:250:02:27

Look at this!

0:02:270:02:29

Skippidy-doo-dah!

0:02:290:02:30

This is possibly the most joyous thing I've ever seen.

0:02:300:02:34

As you might be able to tell from my happy face.

0:02:340:02:36

Jessica sure can jump.

0:02:400:02:42

Those little legs are propelling her so high,

0:02:420:02:44

she could be bouncing over herself.

0:02:440:02:46

Disaster! Jessica jumped too late, and her back leg snagged the rope.

0:02:500:02:55

Valuable seconds lost, will it cost them?

0:02:550:02:58

Eye of the tiger! Yes! Go on!

0:02:580:03:01

Oh, no! Not again!

0:03:010:03:04

Magnificent.

0:03:060:03:07

And now, Jessica's jumping without the rope.

0:03:090:03:12

They've completely lost their rhythm.

0:03:120:03:14

Yes, go on!

0:03:180:03:20

But they're back in the groove. Come on!

0:03:200:03:23

This is magnificent, this is poochy poetry in motion!

0:03:230:03:26

Time!

0:03:260:03:28

Scintillating skipping.

0:03:280:03:30

But was it a new world record?

0:03:300:03:32

It's over to official adjudicator, Mark.

0:03:320:03:35

The record to beat today was 51.

0:03:350:03:38

In the time, you achieved...

0:03:380:03:40

-..47.

-Oh, it's close! It is so close!

0:03:440:03:49

Just four skips short of the record.

0:03:490:03:52

Those entanglements cost Jessica and Rachael dearly.

0:03:520:03:55

Gutting.

0:03:550:03:57

But, after time out for a sports massage,

0:03:570:04:00

Jessica is ready for one last attempt.

0:04:000:04:03

This is it!

0:04:030:04:05

Great start! Human and dog united in perfect motion.

0:04:080:04:12

Aw, Jessie, go on.

0:04:140:04:16

No! Jessica's going walkies.

0:04:160:04:18

It's a reluctant dog.

0:04:180:04:19

Oh, a superb recovery! That is not easy.

0:04:220:04:24

And look at Jessica's tail, wagging with joy.

0:04:270:04:30

They're right back on world-record pace now. Jump, Jessica, jump!

0:04:310:04:35

Oh, no, did Rachael's heel catch the rope then?

0:04:390:04:42

Let's look at the slow-mo.

0:04:420:04:44

It certainly looks like a foot foul.

0:04:440:04:46

If Mark saw that, that skip won't count.

0:04:460:04:49

They've strayed right off course.

0:04:490:04:51

Rachael's exhausted, and yet still, they skip.

0:04:510:04:55

-Right to the end...

-Time!

-Oh, well done!

0:04:550:04:58

Wow!

0:04:580:04:59

Did they reach 51 skips for a new record?

0:04:590:05:02

We did need to disqualify one skip

0:05:030:05:05

as the rope did catch your foot as it went under.

0:05:050:05:09

You achieved...

0:05:090:05:10

..50.

0:05:110:05:12

And the disqualified one!

0:05:130:05:15

Ugh!

0:05:150:05:17

Devastation as that flailing foot prevents Jessica and Rachael

0:05:170:05:21

from equalling the world record.

0:05:210:05:23

It's subdued in the Bunker too, as only 12% predicted that sad outcome.

0:05:230:05:29

Oh, Jessica, you're still officially amazing in our eyes.

0:05:290:05:33

And at least you got a lift home.

0:05:330:05:35

And now, it's time for...

0:05:350:05:36

Today's record could have been made for Ray. It's the...

0:05:420:05:45

Let's get the rules.

0:05:480:05:50

This is what a jumping jack looks like.

0:05:500:05:53

To count, the hands must meet at the top, and at the same time,

0:05:530:05:57

the feet must be spread at least shoulder-width apart at the bottom

0:05:570:06:00

before the contestant returns to the start position.

0:06:000:06:03

And the record to beat is 53 jumping jacks in 30 seconds.

0:06:050:06:09

So, who do you predict will be our jubilant jump-jacker?

0:06:100:06:14

Well, our Bunker crew were clearly impressed by Ray's demo.

0:06:140:06:18

But a surprisingly high 2% have gone for Sizzler?

0:06:180:06:22

Oh! Maybe his mum and dad are in?

0:06:220:06:24

He's up first.

0:06:240:06:25

So, it's over to official adjudicator, Shantha.

0:06:250:06:28

Three, two, one...

0:06:280:06:31

..go!

0:06:310:06:32

Wait, what's this?

0:06:330:06:35

The Sizzy Rascal seems to know what he's doing!

0:06:350:06:38

Come on, Sizzler!

0:06:380:06:40

No-one could have predicted this, Ben.

0:06:400:06:43

Especially from a man who thinks sensible shoes

0:06:430:06:45

and casual slacks are acceptable athletic attire.

0:06:450:06:48

Just look at the concentration.

0:06:480:06:51

He's putting everything into this.

0:06:510:06:54

Fact alert - Steve is wearing an extra layer of deodorant.

0:06:540:06:58

Presumably in case this 30 seconds of moderate exercise

0:06:580:07:02

causes a tsunami of sizzling sweat.

0:07:020:07:04

Ugh! TMI, Ben.

0:07:040:07:06

TMI.

0:07:060:07:08

But Britain's little flower is beginning to wilt.

0:07:080:07:12

Oh, and he's lost his rhythm.

0:07:130:07:16

Five, four, three, two, one...

0:07:160:07:20

..stop!

0:07:200:07:21

And what a finish!

0:07:210:07:23

Pure showbiz from the Sizz-biz.

0:07:230:07:25

Well, that was a revelation.

0:07:260:07:28

Cherry's up next.

0:07:310:07:32

Mr Cherry, are you ready?

0:07:320:07:35

I was born ready!

0:07:350:07:37

Go!

0:07:370:07:39

Ooh...

0:07:390:07:40

Ben's right, this is quick.

0:07:400:07:42

Possibly helped by those aerodynamic leggings and spangly pants.

0:07:420:07:47

Cherry, Cherry, Cherry!

0:07:470:07:49

Ooh, starting to get a little bit wobbly there.

0:07:510:07:54

And what was that?

0:07:540:07:56

He was going so fast that he lost control

0:07:560:07:59

and collided with the Ramp Of Glory.

0:07:590:08:01

That jumping jack may not count. Will that cost him?

0:08:020:08:05

But he's recovered again and picked up speed.

0:08:070:08:10

Could he threaten the target of 53?

0:08:100:08:13

Three, two, one...

0:08:130:08:17

..stop!

0:08:170:08:18

Oh, dear me!

0:08:180:08:19

Man down!

0:08:190:08:22

Cherry topples to the floor

0:08:220:08:23

after 30 seconds of extraordinary, exhausting exercise.

0:08:230:08:27

Two unexpectedly impressive displays, then.

0:08:280:08:32

The pressure is on US Ray.

0:08:320:08:35

Go!

0:08:350:08:36

Look at that speed.

0:08:380:08:40

Impeccable technique.

0:08:400:08:43

Ray's got this in the bag.

0:08:430:08:45

Mesmerising.

0:08:450:08:46

This is the difference between a real athlete

0:08:480:08:50

and a man in casual slacks, Ben.

0:08:500:08:53

Come on, Ray!

0:08:530:08:54

Flawless.

0:08:550:08:56

But Ray's feet aren't always coming together,

0:08:590:09:01

and those jacks won't count.

0:09:010:09:03

Minor errors, Ben.

0:09:060:09:08

Time's nearly up and Ray's superspeed is showing

0:09:080:09:10

no signs of slowing. This is a world-class workout.

0:09:100:09:15

Come on, Ray.

0:09:150:09:16

Five, four, three, two, one...

0:09:160:09:20

..stop!

0:09:200:09:21

Textbook technique, as Ray jump jacks to the max.

0:09:210:09:24

But did he do enough to earn a record?

0:09:260:09:28

Shantha, do we have a record?

0:09:280:09:31

Yes.

0:09:330:09:34

In third place...

0:09:360:09:38

..with a total of 44...

0:09:380:09:40

..is...

0:09:400:09:42

..Steve.

0:09:420:09:44

44!

0:09:440:09:45

The very definition of heroic failure from Sizz!

0:09:450:09:47

We salute him.

0:09:470:09:49

And in first place...

0:09:490:09:50

..equalling the current record of 53, is...

0:09:500:09:54

..Ray!

0:09:580:10:00

My man has done it.

0:10:010:10:03

And he treats the Bunker to a spectacular celebration.

0:10:030:10:07

Cherry and Ray actually managed exactly 57 jacks each.

0:10:070:10:12

But while six of Cherry's didn't count, only four of Ray's were

0:10:120:10:16

disqualified, leaving him with a narrow, but record-equalling, win.

0:10:160:10:20

Just as 73% of the Bunker predicted.

0:10:200:10:23

That's one win each,

0:10:240:10:26

one record each.

0:10:260:10:27

It couldn't be closer.

0:10:270:10:29

And finally, why is Cherry pulling this face?

0:10:290:10:33

Well, it's because audience member Owen here has just put him

0:10:330:10:36

into our gunge tank of doom.

0:10:360:10:38

Gungey!

0:10:380:10:39

He seems fine.

0:10:390:10:41

This means Steve and Ray join forces for the record for...

0:10:410:10:45

However, there's far too much going coin toppling going on

0:10:490:10:51

in this attempt for the record to be broken.

0:10:510:10:54

Meaning Owen's delighted and, well, you know what comes next.

0:10:540:10:58

Splendidly splodgy scenes.

0:10:580:11:00

We'll see you next time.

0:11:000:11:02

Featuring a dog who can skip! In the bunker, Steve, Ray and Cherry try competitive jump-jacking, with one of them potentially facing the Gunge Tank of Doom.
