# Officially, officially, officially... Amazing! #

Welcome to Officially Amazing - The Best Of The Bunker.

0:00:070:00:10

Still to come - this man goes water-skiing using his bare feet.

0:00:100:00:15

Before that, though, the first team event of the series. Oh, no!

0:00:150:00:21

The Sizzler proved quickest at the ancient art of balancing

0:00:280:00:32

golf tees on golf balls.

0:00:320:00:34

Which means we have a three-way tie at the top of the leaderboard.

0:00:350:00:39

But someone will surely step out from the pack after today's

0:00:390:00:43

tasty challenge...

0:00:430:00:44

A team event. Good news for Team USA. Less so for Team UK.

0:00:490:00:54

Yes, let's be honest.

0:00:550:00:57

When Sizz and I have teamed up for record attempts in the past,

0:00:570:01:00

things have not always gone well.

0:01:000:01:02

You've never won a team event, have you, Ben?

0:01:020:01:05

Yes, yes, all right, Al!

0:01:050:01:07

Let's just get the rules.

0:01:070:01:09

One contestant must be blindfolded before passing their arms

0:01:090:01:12

under the arms of their team-mate, who can see.

0:01:120:01:15

The seeing contestant can only give verbal instructions,

0:01:150:01:19

and the sandwich must be made in this exact order.

0:01:190:01:22

Both slices of bread must be fully buttered before a slice of ham,

0:01:220:01:26

then cheese, then tomatoes are laid on top.

0:01:260:01:29

Followed by a cocktail flag to finish.

0:01:290:01:32

Poorly made sandwiches will be disqualified.

0:01:320:01:35

The sandwich must be made in under 48.38 seconds.

0:01:360:01:39

Just 18% of our audience think Steve and Ben will triumph

0:01:410:01:44

in this tasty tea-time test.

0:01:440:01:46

But what do you think?

0:01:480:01:49

Team USA are up first.

0:01:490:01:51

Ray will be the eyes, and will give instructions to blind-folded Al

0:01:510:01:55

and his sandwich-making hands.

0:01:550:01:57

It's over to official adjudicator Shantha.

0:01:570:02:00

Three, two, one, go!

0:02:000:02:02

Right there, grab it.

0:02:020:02:04

Bread - nailed.

0:02:040:02:06

You got it, man. You got it. Knife right there.

0:02:060:02:09

Those slices must be buttered to all corners.

0:02:090:02:11

Al, do you think you have enough butter there?

0:02:110:02:14

I'm leaving nothing to chance.

0:02:140:02:16

Also, I can't see, so I don't know.

0:02:160:02:19

Cool, cool. Grab the ham.

0:02:190:02:20

Grab the ham.

0:02:200:02:21

Al moves on to handle the ham.

0:02:210:02:23

Yeah, there we go. All right, grab that cheese.

0:02:250:02:27

Get that cheese, Al. Come on, Al!

0:02:270:02:28

Al has actual butter fingers!

0:02:280:02:30

And can't get the wrapping off the cheese.

0:02:300:02:33

No, no, no, be careful. Don't rip the cheese. There we go.

0:02:330:02:36

Be careful. Right there, right there.

0:02:360:02:39

Al has finally released his cheese, but he's also torn it,

0:02:390:02:43

and not all of it's in the sandwich.

0:02:430:02:46

Shantha may not be impressed.

0:02:460:02:48

Yep, yep. Flip it.

0:02:480:02:50

Turn it.

0:02:500:02:52

-A bit more. One more rotation.

-Oh, dear.

0:02:520:02:55

Bit of a sarnie setback here.

0:02:550:02:57

This isn't easy, Ben!

0:02:570:02:58

-Stop!

-Yeah!

0:02:590:03:01

Well, that was certainly enthusiastic.

0:03:010:03:04

Thanks, Ben.

0:03:050:03:07

Poor Shantha is left to inspect Team USA's sorry sandwich.

0:03:070:03:11

But now I can stand back and watch Team UK implode.

0:03:110:03:15

Again.

0:03:150:03:17

Steve's the hands, Ben's the eyes.

0:03:170:03:19

-Go!

-All right, Steve. We need the bread. Here it is.

0:03:190:03:22

Go on. Tear into it, Steve, like you tear into those records.

0:03:220:03:25

Steve tosses aside the loaf.

0:03:250:03:27

He means business!

0:03:270:03:29

That's nice. That's the first slice.

0:03:290:03:31

Yeah, lovely, lovely, lovely.

0:03:310:03:33

Beautiful butter work from The Sizzler!

0:03:330:03:36

The ham's on.

0:03:360:03:38

But the cheese is buried!

0:03:380:03:40

Move it. Another slice. Go, go.

0:03:400:03:42

All thanks to Steve's impetuous loaf-lobbing at the start.

0:03:420:03:46

Down the other side.

0:03:460:03:48

Steve's unwrapping is super slow.

0:03:480:03:50

Can we move over? And it goes there.

0:03:500:03:52

But admire how neat and delicious it looks.

0:03:520:03:56

Great, Steve. That's lovely. One down there.

0:03:560:03:58

Top tomato topping there. Just bread and flag to go.

0:03:580:04:02

Bread goes down. That's lovely. Is victory within our buttery grasp?

0:04:020:04:05

Stick it in the bread... Yes!

0:04:050:04:07

Savour the sight of our superior sarnie!

0:04:090:04:11

Look at it compared to your mashed-up mess.

0:04:120:04:16

Well, you may have had the finesse, but did you have the speed?

0:04:160:04:20

We won't know until after Cheeky and Cherry's first team event ever.

0:04:200:04:24

Go!

0:04:240:04:26

SHE SPEAKS JAPANESE

0:04:270:04:29

He's struggling to get that lid off.

0:04:290:04:31

Different tactic here as Cherry holds his bread while buttering it.

0:04:330:04:37

But is that thumb preventing complete coverage?

0:04:380:04:42

To be valid, the butter must be spread all over the bread.

0:04:420:04:45

I wonder what Cheeky's saying to him.

0:04:460:04:48

Only one way to find out.

0:04:480:04:50

TELEPHONE DIALLING

0:04:500:04:52

-Hello.

-Hi, Haruka. Could you

0:04:540:04:55

translate what Cheeky is saying for us?

0:04:550:04:57

Sounds like she's instructing Mr Cherry on how to make a sandwich.

0:04:590:05:03

Thanks, Haruka.

0:05:030:05:05

Love to the baby!

0:05:050:05:06

-Bye!

-Bye...

0:05:060:05:07

There you go, Ben.

0:05:070:05:09

Brilliant. Whatever she's saying, it's working.

0:05:090:05:11

Oh, but there's an errant tomato slice!

0:05:120:05:15

It's back in.

0:05:160:05:18

-CHEERING

-And done.

0:05:180:05:20

Super sanger sorcery!

0:05:200:05:22

But will all the sandwiches pass official adjudicator

0:05:220:05:25

Shantha's stringent sarnie standards?

0:05:250:05:28

And do we have a record?

0:05:280:05:30

No.

0:05:310:05:32

Oh!

0:05:320:05:34

There's still the all-important competitive point to play for.

0:05:350:05:39

Team USA...

0:05:390:05:40

..you had an invalid attempt because you ripped your cheese.

0:05:420:05:48

So you are disqualified.

0:05:480:05:50

Yes, and sadly it's not the first time Team USA has ripped

0:05:500:05:54

the cheese today either.

0:05:540:05:56

-FLATULENCE

-Oh, yeah, sorry about that.

-Ugh!

0:05:560:05:58

Team Japan...

0:05:580:06:00

..you had an invalid attempt

0:06:010:06:05

because you did not fully butter

0:06:050:06:08

your bread.

0:06:080:06:10

Oh, Shantha!

0:06:100:06:12

Shantha!

0:06:120:06:14

Cherry looks distraught.

0:06:140:06:15

Team UK,

0:06:150:06:17

you had a valid attempt.

0:06:170:06:19

And a time of two minutes and one second.

0:06:200:06:22

-Look at that!

-Look at that, Ben!

0:06:240:06:26

At last!

0:06:260:06:28

Unbelievable.

0:06:280:06:30

In a team of two records fraught with failures,

0:06:300:06:33

none were committed by Team UK!

0:06:330:06:35

Two wins on the trot sends Steve storming to the

0:06:350:06:38

top of the leaderboard.

0:06:380:06:40

The British are coming!

0:06:400:06:42

But now...

0:06:440:06:45

This is Ted Baber, a champion barefoot water-skier.

0:06:450:06:49

Which is basically water-skiing, but without skis!

0:06:490:06:53

That means Ted is skidding along the top of the water at high

0:06:530:06:56

speed with nothing at all on his feet.

0:06:560:06:59

Not even a pair of socks!

0:06:590:07:01

Today, he's attempting the record for...

0:07:010:07:03

And this is what a tumble turn looks like when you are water-skiing.

0:07:090:07:12

But if he fails, he could always try a longest bum slide record.

0:07:140:07:19

Seat-of-the-pants stuff.

0:07:190:07:21

Here are the rules.

0:07:220:07:24

Each tumble turn must be a full 360 degree rotation,

0:07:240:07:28

starting and ending in a standing position

0:07:280:07:31

like that.

0:07:310:07:33

No footwear is permitted.

0:07:330:07:35

And the target is 17 tumble turns in 30 seconds.

0:07:350:07:39

This is a dangerous record!

0:07:400:07:43

So we have a safety boat

0:07:430:07:44

and a tiny paramedic on standby.

0:07:440:07:48

Back in The Bunker, a monumental 85% think Ted will be a tumbling

0:07:490:07:54

triumph, but what do you reckon?

0:07:540:07:57

Let's see how he does.

0:07:570:07:59

The arm on the side of the boat allows Ted to ski next to it

0:07:590:08:02

rather than behind.

0:08:020:08:03

And he's close enough to be able to communicate

0:08:030:08:06

with his experienced driver, Rod.

0:08:060:08:09

Remember, Ted is a trained professional who's been doing

0:08:090:08:12

this for years.

0:08:120:08:14

Whilst Ted is ready,

0:08:150:08:17

he'll give official adjudicator Mark the nod to start the clock.

0:08:170:08:20

And he's off!

0:08:210:08:24

And straight away, he's into his tumble turns.

0:08:240:08:27

Remember, it's 17 needed for the record,

0:08:270:08:30

so Ted needs to rotate quicker than once every two seconds.

0:08:300:08:33

Oh, look at him go! Look at that!

0:08:330:08:36

Look at this!

0:08:370:08:39

He starts on his feet,

0:08:390:08:41

lowers to his bum,

0:08:410:08:43

rotates on his back,

0:08:430:08:44

and then pulls himself back to his feet again.

0:08:440:08:47

That is taking immense strength and incredible balance,

0:08:480:08:53

particularly as he's skating across the lake at around 40mph.

0:08:530:08:57

Look how Ted spins one way first, then the other!

0:08:590:09:02

Presumably, that stops him from getting dizzy, losing control,

0:09:030:09:07

and spiralling across the lake like a watery whirling dervish!

0:09:070:09:11

And that's it!

0:09:140:09:16

He lets go and skitters towards shore like a skimming stone.

0:09:160:09:20

Look at that!

0:09:200:09:21

-He's on his bum!

-He's on his bum!

0:09:210:09:24

Terrific tumble turning.

0:09:250:09:27

But did he manage the 17 needed for the record?

0:09:270:09:30

It's over to official adjudicator Mark.

0:09:300:09:33

On that occasion, you achieved

0:09:330:09:37

16.

0:09:370:09:38

-One away!

-Oh, just short!

0:09:410:09:43

Well, you said you could go faster,

0:09:430:09:44

so do you think you've got that one more tumble turn at least in you?

0:09:440:09:48

Yeah, I reckon I could get that, yeah.

0:09:480:09:50

Ted goes again, tumbling and turning his way through another wild

0:09:500:09:54

and wet 30 seconds out on the water.

0:09:540:09:57

And this time...

0:09:570:09:59

On that occasion,

0:09:590:10:00

you managed...

0:10:000:10:01

..18, which is a brand-new Guinness World Record!

0:10:040:10:07

He's done it!

0:10:070:10:08

Ted may feel like he's just been through the rinse cycle

0:10:080:10:11

in a washing machine, but it must be worth it for that new world record.

0:10:110:10:15

Now for one of our legends to also get a thorough soaking

0:10:150:10:19

courtesy of Adam, our choosy audience member of the day

0:10:190:10:23

who put Sizzler in the gunge tank

0:10:230:10:26

so that Ray and Cherry can attempt the record for...

0:10:260:10:29

A wise choice, as our two most athletic competitors give

0:10:320:10:36

everything in a bid to hit the target of 85 jumps.

0:10:360:10:40

Do they do it and save the Sizz?

0:10:400:10:42

Today, you managed...

0:10:420:10:45

..nothing, because Mr Cherry broke the rules after his first jump.

0:10:470:10:51

Oh... No!

0:10:540:10:55

Which means the Sizz gets another good gunging.

0:10:550:10:59

This machine is my favourite thing ever!

0:10:590:11:02

See you next time.

0:11:020:11:03

It's barefoot water skiing, competitive sandwich making, and a record attempt involving star jumps where one of our heroes faces the Gunge Tank of Doom.
