# Amazing! #

0:00:030:00:05

Welcome to Officially Amazing - The Best Of The Bunker. Coming up...

0:00:070:00:11

..a scintillatingly spinny cyr wheel record attempt.

0:00:110:00:15

But first, the return of US Ray's trickiest tools in

0:00:150:00:20

Officially Competitive -

0:00:200:00:22

The Bunker Games.

0:00:220:00:24

Previously on Officially Competitive...

0:00:240:00:27

On paper, it was as easy as a stroll in the park

0:00:270:00:30

but the heel toe walk was a shambles.

0:00:300:00:33

Disqualified.

0:00:330:00:34

Disqualified.

0:00:340:00:36

Disqualified.

0:00:360:00:38

That triple DQ sees

0:00:380:00:39

Ray still topping the leaderboard

0:00:390:00:41

and living the dream but that dream

0:00:410:00:43

could turn into a nightmare

0:00:430:00:45

because today's record is...

0:00:450:00:47

most uncooked rice grains moved

0:00:470:00:50

with chopsticks in 30 seconds.

0:00:500:00:53

Chopsticks?

0:00:530:00:54

NO-O-O-O-O!

0:00:540:00:55

They're Super Ray's kryptonite.

0:00:550:00:58

Ugh! Let's get the rules.

0:00:580:01:00

The rice must be taken from one bowl

0:01:000:01:02

and placed into a second bowl

0:01:020:01:04

one grain at a time.

0:01:040:01:06

The bowls must be a minimum of 50 centimetres apart

0:01:060:01:10

and only one hand may be used.

0:01:100:01:12

And the record to beat is 22

0:01:130:01:15

rice grains moved in 30 seconds.

0:01:150:01:18

So, who do you think will win this sticky challenge?

0:01:180:01:22

Cherry's the favourite in the Bunker

0:01:220:01:24

but 7% have loyally predicted

0:01:240:01:27

victory for Ray, despite his

0:01:270:01:29

chequered chopstick past.

0:01:290:01:31

-And he's up first.

-Over to you, Shantha.

-Ray, are you ready?

0:01:310:01:34

-No!

-LAUGHTER

0:01:340:01:37

Three, two, one, go!

0:01:370:01:40

Come on, Ray, silence the doubters.

0:01:400:01:43

Any time now, Ray.

0:01:450:01:47

It's taken him seven seconds just to pick the chopsticks up!

0:01:470:01:51

That's almost a quarter of the time gone already!

0:01:510:01:55

Oh, man, they're upside down!

0:01:550:01:57

Or is that deliberate?

0:01:580:02:00

Well, that's one grain moved.

0:02:030:02:04

He's having some trouble

0:02:060:02:07

but could this maverick technique be the key to smashing this record?

0:02:070:02:11

And that's number two!

0:02:140:02:16

Just 20 more.

0:02:160:02:18

Five, four, three, two, one

0:02:180:02:22

-stop!

-Oh...

0:02:220:02:24

Just two, then.

0:02:240:02:25

By Ray's chopstick standards, that verged on the heroic.

0:02:250:02:29

Indeed, and his attempt at the end

0:02:290:02:31

to waft an imaginary grain

0:02:310:02:33

through the air into the bowl

0:02:330:02:35

was a particular highlight.

0:02:350:02:36

Meanwhile, the Sizzler, who's twice held the one-minute

0:02:380:02:41

version of this record, has chosen brown rice.

0:02:410:02:44

It's healthier, but is it faster?

0:02:440:02:47

He's thinly spread a few dozen grains on his personal white

0:02:470:02:50

saucer and his special glass bowl is in place.

0:02:500:02:53

Perfect, if protracted, preparation.

0:02:530:02:56

But now, he is ready.

0:02:560:02:59

Go!

0:02:590:03:01

That's the first one in.

0:03:050:03:07

No panic here from Sizzle Bizzle. He's as cool as rice.

0:03:070:03:11

That's two.

0:03:120:03:14

And a third.

0:03:140:03:15

Oh, no!

0:03:150:03:16

Ricey ruination as Steve's grain pings off the lip of the bowl

0:03:160:03:21

and tumbles to the abyss below.

0:03:210:03:23

How critical might that single grain be?

0:03:230:03:27

Well, it hasn't phased him.

0:03:280:03:30

Look at that laser-eyed focus on this tricky task.

0:03:300:03:34

Five, four, three, two, one,

0:03:370:03:41

stop!

0:03:410:03:43

Oh! He sent that last one skittering across the tabletop.

0:03:430:03:46

But he's still deposited enough rice grains to make at least half

0:03:460:03:50

a teaspoon of rice pudding.

0:03:500:03:52

And now to Cherry.

0:03:520:03:54

He's gone for a mountain of black rice

0:03:540:03:56

and a high sided personalised popcorn bucket.

0:03:560:03:59

He's obviously taking this very seriously.

0:03:590:04:02

Japanese!

0:04:020:04:03

Chopsticks, chopsticks, chopsticks!

0:04:030:04:06

-BOTH:

-Victory!

0:04:060:04:08

Come on! Thank you!

0:04:080:04:10

Go!

0:04:100:04:11

Just look at this manic pace!

0:04:130:04:16

Is Cherry on fast forward?

0:04:160:04:19

No, but he's so fast the human eye can barely keep up.

0:04:190:04:22

This is jaw-dropping speed.

0:04:220:04:24

Look at the explosion as his sticks strike at the heart of that

0:04:260:04:29

huge mass of rice.

0:04:290:04:31

If he moves that lot, he'll annihilate the record of 22.

0:04:330:04:36

I think this is tactical.

0:04:380:04:40

When he digs in, he's almost guaranteed to grab a grain

0:04:400:04:43

and he doesn't waste time chasing single ones round a plate...

0:04:430:04:46

..Steve.

0:04:470:04:49

But sometimes, he's snagging more than one at a time

0:04:510:04:54

and those grains will not count.

0:04:540:04:57

Five, four, three, two, one,

0:04:570:05:01

-stop!

-Well, that was fast.

0:05:010:05:04

But just how precise was that movement of rice? Let's find out.

0:05:040:05:10

Official adjudicator Shantha, please tell me, do we have a record?

0:05:100:05:15

No, we don't.

0:05:160:05:18

Sad news, but there's still that vital Officially Competitive

0:05:180:05:21

point to play for.

0:05:210:05:23

In third place with a total...

0:05:230:05:26

..of two...

0:05:260:05:28

..is Ray.

0:05:290:05:31

The traditional celebration of last place from Team USA.

0:05:310:05:34

And in first place...

0:05:340:05:37

..with a total of 15 valid grains is...

0:05:370:05:41

..Mr Cherry!

0:05:440:05:46

EXCITED CHEERING

0:05:460:05:48

Mr Cherry wins, just as 67% of the Bumper Crew knew he would,

0:05:480:05:54

his super speedy technique

0:05:540:05:55

destroying Steve's score

0:05:550:05:57

of eight grains and moving him to

0:05:570:05:59

the top of the leaderboard with Ray.

0:05:590:06:01

Now, meet Alula.

0:06:010:06:04

Three of the world's leading cyr wheel artists.

0:06:070:06:10

A cyr wheel is a steel ring which can spin gyroscopically.

0:06:110:06:15

That means it can rotate and move in every possible direction,

0:06:150:06:19

perfect for spectacular circus skills.

0:06:190:06:23

Today, the Alulas will attempt the world record for...

0:06:230:06:27

Which means spinning like this

0:06:330:06:35

with all three of them in the wheel at once.

0:06:350:06:38

Lil, Jess and Fiona, how hard is it to fit three of you in one wheel?

0:06:380:06:44

It is hard, we've worked on various different ways of doing it.

0:06:440:06:47

We've found Jess in the splits works best for us.

0:06:470:06:50

And when you say Jess in the splits...

0:06:500:06:52

So, Jess is in the middle with her legs split like that.

0:06:520:06:56

-Doing the splits?

-Doing the splits.

0:06:560:06:58

-That's what you mean, doing the splits.

-Actually doing the splits.

0:06:580:07:01

And then me and Lil are kind of sandwiching her on either side

0:07:010:07:05

and then we pull and push on each of our feet and get it spinning.

0:07:050:07:09

How hard is it?

0:07:090:07:10

It's tough for Jess because she has to sit in over split.

0:07:100:07:12

-Split for, like, a minute.

-And then it's tough for us

0:07:120:07:15

-because we have to just, we have to power on through.

-Yeah.

0:07:150:07:18

We've never done it for a minute before either

0:07:180:07:20

so that's been a challenge.

0:07:200:07:21

Shhh!

0:07:210:07:23

Shush! Shhh!

0:07:230:07:25

Well, there can be no cyr-ing without rule adhering.

0:07:250:07:30

All three contestants must be holding the wheel

0:07:300:07:33

with their hands and feet apart.

0:07:330:07:35

Only full 360 degree rotations will count.

0:07:350:07:39

And should any contestant touch

0:07:390:07:41

the floor, the attempt is over.

0:07:410:07:43

The world record target

0:07:430:07:45

is 20 rotations in one minute.

0:07:450:07:47

The Bunker Crew are casting their votes and 47% predict that

0:07:490:07:53

Alula will spin their way to glory, but what do you think?

0:07:530:07:57

In your own time.

0:07:570:07:59

The attempt will start

0:08:040:08:05

when the girls are up to speed with all three riding the wheel.

0:08:050:08:08

KLAXON BLARES

0:08:110:08:12

This is it, spincredible scenes.

0:08:120:08:15

-Oh!

-No! They've crashed out after only four seconds!

0:08:170:08:22

Just three spins in and they completely lost momentum,

0:08:220:08:26

leaving Fiona no choice but to abandon the attempt.

0:08:260:08:30

They said they'd never done a full minute

0:08:300:08:32

-but surely they can do more than that?

-Let's find out, Haruka.

0:08:320:08:36

The Alula girls are getting straight back on the wheel.

0:08:360:08:39

And they're off!

0:08:430:08:45

This looks much better.

0:08:450:08:47

A fluid rhythm and perfect pace.

0:08:470:08:50

But can they maintain it for the full minute?

0:08:500:08:52

-15 seconds.

-This is amazing!

0:08:540:08:56

This is such a hard record.

0:08:560:08:59

They have to combine balance, power and teamwork,

0:08:590:09:03

all while getting dreadfully dizzy.

0:09:030:09:06

And let's not forget that Jess is doing all of that in the splits!

0:09:060:09:10

30 seconds.

0:09:100:09:12

Halfway there!

0:09:120:09:14

Just listen to the Alulas driving each other on.

0:09:140:09:17

Keep it up.

0:09:170:09:19

Top triple teamwork.

0:09:200:09:22

-45 seconds.

-Come on, now, girls, last 15.

0:09:230:09:26

They're really having to dig deep now. Just a few seconds left.

0:09:280:09:33

We've got it. We've got this.

0:09:330:09:35

Three, two, one, time!

0:09:350:09:38

-Yes!

-Yes!

-Yes!

0:09:380:09:42

They're all absolutely exhausted but they completed the full minute.

0:09:420:09:47

Spectacular cyr soaring from the Alula ladies, but was it a record?

0:09:480:09:54

Official adjudicator Mark checks his Facebook.

0:09:540:09:57

He's, um, reviewing the slow-mo footage, Ben.

0:09:570:10:00

That makes more sense.

0:10:000:10:02

Time for the moment of truth.

0:10:020:10:03

In order to achieve the record today, you needed

0:10:030:10:05

a minimum of 20 valid rotations.

0:10:050:10:08

In the minute, you achieved...

0:10:080:10:10

61, which is a brand-new Guinness World Record title!

0:10:140:10:18

Oh, look at that!

0:10:180:10:19

EXCITED SCREAMING AND LAUGHTER

0:10:190:10:22

I think they're happy with that!

0:10:220:10:25

61!

0:10:250:10:26

They didn't just break the record, they completely annihilated it!

0:10:260:10:31

Alula, ruler!

0:10:310:10:33

Now, time to put someone into the gunge tank of doom.

0:10:330:10:39

And today's audience member who will be making that gloopy choice

0:10:390:10:42

is the mighty Hope.

0:10:420:10:44

The record...

0:10:440:10:45

Her victim?

0:10:500:10:51

Mr Cherry.

0:10:510:10:54

The St-Rays need to land ten planes

0:10:540:10:56

in the target in a minute to

0:10:560:10:58

save Cherry.

0:10:580:10:59

But Steve manages three and Ray a big fat zero,

0:10:590:11:02

so Cherry gets a gunging.

0:11:020:11:06

Marvellous stuff. See you next time!

0:11:060:11:09

Featuring a dizzying demonstration with a Cyr wheel, and the Officially Competitive warriors take on a chopstick challenge and, as always, one of them will face banishment to the Gunge Tank of Doom.
