Welcome to Officially Amazing: The Best Of The Bunker.

0:00:070:00:11

Coming up, an incredible freestyle rugby ball record.

0:00:110:00:14

But first, things are about to get very tense in...

0:00:140:00:18

Today, our legends confront a challenge

0:00:220:00:25

that beat them all last series.

0:00:250:00:27

Here are the rules.

0:00:330:00:34

Each competitor has 30 seconds to form a horizontal line of dice

0:00:340:00:38

before lifting them with two fingers,

0:00:380:00:40

which must keep touching the dice throughout.

0:00:400:00:43

They must lift the dice to a height

0:00:430:00:45

of at least 45.7 centimetres.

0:00:450:00:48

And hold them there for five seconds.

0:00:480:00:51

And the record to beat

0:00:510:00:53

is a colossal 40 dice.

0:00:530:00:55

Cherry's up first, and he looks focused.

0:00:550:00:59

Three, two, one, go!

0:00:590:01:02

Cherry is using the dual-hand method to form his line of dice.

0:01:020:01:07

And Cheeky's hair is so excited, it's bobbing around with joy.

0:01:070:01:11

Cherry's constructed a crooked column,

0:01:110:01:14

but operation dice dishevelling is go.

0:01:140:01:18

Precision is paramount in professional pinch picking.

0:01:180:01:21

Five, four, three,

0:01:210:01:25

two, one, stop.

0:01:250:01:28

Building time is over.

0:01:280:01:30

Now for the lift.

0:01:300:01:32

The crowd barely dare to breathe as the great man raises his dice.

0:01:390:01:43

-Cherry! Cherry!

-Impressively, they can still chant, though.

0:01:430:01:47

Cherry! Cherry! Go, go, Cherry!

0:01:470:01:51

Now for the 5-second hold.

0:01:510:01:54

But he's looking shaky and in pain.

0:01:540:01:57

-Stop.

-Yes!

0:01:570:01:59

Cherry has conquered his Everest.

0:01:590:02:02

And doesn't he know it?

0:02:030:02:04

But here cometh the little man,

0:02:040:02:07

my mini mountaineer, US Ray!

0:02:070:02:10

Three, two, one, go!

0:02:100:02:13

And look at him go.

0:02:160:02:18

This is fastidious finger work.

0:02:180:02:21

Meticulous dice placement too.

0:02:220:02:24

This level of precision impresses me.

0:02:240:02:27

And so it should.

0:02:270:02:29

Check out dice cake.

0:02:300:02:31

Luxuriantly long and linear.

0:02:310:02:34

Five, four, three,

0:02:340:02:38

two, one, stop.

0:02:380:02:40

-Can he lift it?

-You must lift the dice, Ray.

0:02:400:02:43

A little warm-up and we're good to go.

0:02:430:02:46

Oh, no!

0:02:550:02:57

Almost a drop, but he recovered

0:02:570:02:59

and crucially it looked like his fingers stayed touching the dice.

0:02:590:03:03

Come on, Ray!

0:03:030:03:05

Whoa, a spectacularly speedy lift!

0:03:090:03:13

Now for the 5-second hold.

0:03:130:03:15

Stop.

0:03:180:03:19

That is the smile of a man that is delighted with his dicey deeds.

0:03:220:03:26

Now to the Sizzler. Last time he pinched too hard.

0:03:280:03:32

Can he be gentle this time? Or is he too pumped?

0:03:320:03:35

-Steve, are you ready?

-Yeah, I guess so.

0:03:350:03:39

Oh, he is pumped.

0:03:390:03:41

Go!

0:03:410:03:42

Head down, eager fingers, Steve is determined not to fail this time.

0:03:430:03:49

He's barely allowing himself time to blink.

0:03:490:03:52

Blinking is for the weak-willed pinch picker.

0:03:520:03:55

Sizzler's will is superhumanly strong.

0:03:550:03:58

Steve! Steve! Steve!

0:03:580:04:00

Five, four, three,

0:04:000:04:03

two, one, stop.

0:04:030:04:05

He added one more dice at the last second. He wants this.

0:04:060:04:10

It's lifting time.

0:04:100:04:12

Come on, Steve.

0:04:140:04:16

Yes.

0:04:180:04:19

No.

0:04:190:04:20

Whoa! Did I just see what I think I did?

0:04:250:04:27

He's completely changed grip.

0:04:270:04:30

Did his finger stop touching the dice?

0:04:300:04:33

And did Shantha see?

0:04:330:04:35

A nation holds its breath.

0:04:350:04:37

That new grip is working.

0:04:380:04:40

I think he's going to make it.

0:04:420:04:44

Even Ray is happy for Sizz. Heart-warming stuff.

0:04:440:04:48

Nice one, well done!

0:04:490:04:52

Well done.

0:04:520:04:54

Three epic escalations. But did anyone get near that target of 40?

0:04:550:05:01

Over to official adjudicator, Shantha.

0:05:010:05:03

Do we have a record?

0:05:030:05:06

No, we don't.

0:05:070:05:09

GROANS

0:05:090:05:11

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

0:05:110:05:15

Shantha, over to you.

0:05:150:05:17

In third place, with a disqualified attempt...

0:05:180:05:22

..is Steve.

0:05:230:05:25

Shock waves reverberate throughout the Bunker...

0:05:250:05:28

..emanating from Sizzler's furious face.

0:05:280:05:31

Shantha did spot that Sizzy finger fumble before his successful lift.

0:05:310:05:36

Instant disqualification.

0:05:360:05:39

In first place...

0:05:390:05:41

..with a total of 27 dice...

0:05:410:05:44

..is Ray.

0:05:480:05:50

US-Yay!

0:05:520:05:55

Simmering Steve actually matched Ray's lift of 27 dice,

0:05:550:06:00

but the finger fail gifts the point to Team USA,

0:06:000:06:04

just as the audience predicted.

0:06:040:06:06

And Ray catapults himself

0:06:060:06:08

to the top of the leaderboard.

0:06:080:06:10

Which he could literally do

0:06:100:06:12

if he wanted to.

0:06:120:06:14

This is Andrew Henderson,

0:06:140:06:17

a pro-freestyler who's worked with soccer superstars Ronaldo,

0:06:170:06:21

Messi and even beat Neymar in a freestyle football battle.

0:06:210:06:26

To perfect his mind-boggling foot juggling,

0:06:260:06:29

he trains for five hours every day.

0:06:290:06:32

But footballs are just too easy.

0:06:320:06:34

So today, Andrew will freestyle with a rugby ball,

0:06:340:06:38

attempting the record for...

0:06:380:06:40

Here are the rules.

0:06:440:06:46

A competition standard size 5 rugby ball must be used.

0:06:460:06:50

There must be a clear space between ball and neck

0:06:500:06:53

for a throw to be valid.

0:06:530:06:54

Should the ball touch the floor at any time, the attempt is over.

0:06:540:06:58

And the record attempt doesn't have to take place in a disco.

0:06:580:07:01

But who doesn't love a glitterball?

0:07:010:07:04

For the record, Andrew needs to do this 20 times in 30 seconds.

0:07:040:07:09

Only 3% of the Bunker brigade think he'll do it.

0:07:090:07:14

What do you think? Is everyone else right to predict failure?

0:07:140:07:18

Andrew must start with the ball in position on the back of his neck.

0:07:180:07:22

Three, two, one, go!

0:07:220:07:24

First one. It's so hard to balance the ball.

0:07:260:07:29

Andrew does brilliantly to save that wobbly landing, but he's going

0:07:290:07:33

to need cleaner catches to have a chance at the record.

0:07:330:07:37

A good start, a strong start. But you can see how difficult it is.

0:07:390:07:42

Righting himself each time. Come on, Andrew.

0:07:420:07:45

This is much better.

0:07:450:07:47

Andrew's really finding his rhythm now.

0:07:470:07:49

10 seconds.

0:07:490:07:50

Look how his eyes follow the ball in the air

0:07:500:07:53

until the last possible moment.

0:07:530:07:55

There is no margin for error.

0:07:550:07:58

A good push on this now.

0:07:580:08:00

Great rhythm.

0:08:000:08:02

Yeah, he's kept it. He's kept going.

0:08:020:08:05

Time.

0:08:060:08:07

Oh, Andrew failed to make that final catch. Could it be a record?

0:08:070:08:12

In order to achieve the record, you needed 20 neck throw and catches.

0:08:120:08:17

On that occasion, there were 17 complete.

0:08:180:08:21

So close. But early wobbles

0:08:230:08:25

and that frenetic finish really cost Andrew.

0:08:250:08:28

And it didn't get any better.

0:08:300:08:32

Attempt... Oh, never mind.

0:08:320:08:34

..after attempt...

0:08:340:08:37

..after attempt.

0:08:370:08:39

-Time.

-Oh, no!

0:08:390:08:41

..after attempt.

0:08:420:08:43

Until finally, almost one hour after his first failed attempt,

0:08:430:08:48

it looks like Andrew is about to complete

0:08:480:08:51

-a precision perfect 30 seconds.

-Time.

0:08:510:08:53

Oh! That looked good. That looked so good.

0:08:530:08:57

Time as it landed.

0:08:570:08:59

Oh, wow!

0:09:000:09:02

Let's have another look.

0:09:020:09:04

I can't take much more of this.

0:09:040:09:07

Has he done it?

0:09:070:09:08

On this attempt, you did perform 20,

0:09:080:09:11

but the 20th catch came just after the 30-second mark.

0:09:110:09:15

Andrew was just 0.36 seconds from glory.

0:09:160:09:21

He is physically and emotionally exhausted.

0:09:210:09:25

Can he find the energy for one last attempt?

0:09:250:09:27

Three, two, one, go!

0:09:270:09:31

And Andrew has found his rhythm right from the start.

0:09:330:09:36

He's glued to the spot and every throw and catch is low and clean.

0:09:370:09:42

If Andrew keeps this up, it could be the one.

0:09:420:09:46

Andrew's in the zone, pushing through the pain.

0:09:480:09:51

Just 10 seconds left and he's upping the pace. Come on, Andrew!

0:09:520:09:57

-Time.

-Oh, come on, come on!

0:10:000:10:04

He gave it everything. But was it a record?

0:10:040:10:08

On this attempt, you managed...

0:10:080:10:10

..20, which is a brand-new Guinness world record title!

0:10:120:10:16

Look at that!

0:10:160:10:18

Absolutely brilliant.

0:10:180:10:20

Barely anyone thought he'd do it.

0:10:200:10:23

But Andrew never gave up.

0:10:230:10:25

What a performance from Andrew.

0:10:250:10:28

And the 3% of the Bunker crew who had faith in him.

0:10:280:10:31

And what do we have here?

0:10:330:10:34

Yes, this is Sizz finally in the gunge tank of doom,

0:10:340:10:39

courtesy of Bunker brigade member Carly

0:10:390:10:42

who picked him out of the bag of bait. Carly, a sincere thank you.

0:10:420:10:46

This means that Ray and Mr Cherry attempt the record for...

0:10:460:10:51

And, well, they start well, but it all goes wrong.

0:10:540:10:58

And the result is gunge for Sizzler. Magnificent.

0:10:580:11:02

See you next time.

0:11:020:11:03

Fantastic football freestyler Andrew Henderson attempts a record, and in the bunker, Mr Cherry, US Ray and Sizzling Steve tackle a dicey record - and one of them faces a thorough splodging in the gunge tank.
