# Officially, officially, officially... Amazing! #
Welcome to Officially Amazing - The Best Of The Bunker.
Still to come - this man goes water-skiing using his bare feet.
Before that, though, the first team event of the series. Oh, no!
The Sizzler proved quickest at the ancient art of balancing
golf tees on golf balls.
Which means we have a three-way tie at the top of the leaderboard.
But someone will surely step out from the pack after today's
A team event. Good news for Team USA. Less so for Team UK.
Yes, let's be honest.
When Sizz and I have teamed up for record attempts in the past,
things have not always gone well.
You've never won a team event, have you, Ben?
Yes, yes, all right, Al!
Let's just get the rules.
One contestant must be blindfolded before passing their arms
under the arms of their team-mate, who can see.
The seeing contestant can only give verbal instructions,
and the sandwich must be made in this exact order.
Both slices of bread must be fully buttered before a slice of ham,
then cheese, then tomatoes are laid on top.
Followed by a cocktail flag to finish.
Poorly made sandwiches will be disqualified.
The sandwich must be made in under 48.38 seconds.
Just 18% of our audience think Steve and Ben will triumph
in this tasty tea-time test.
But what do you think?
Team USA are up first.
Ray will be the eyes, and will give instructions to blind-folded Al
and his sandwich-making hands.
It's over to official adjudicator Shantha.
Three, two, one, go!
Right there, grab it.
Bread - nailed.
You got it, man. You got it. Knife right there.
Those slices must be buttered to all corners.
Al, do you think you have enough butter there?
I'm leaving nothing to chance.
Also, I can't see, so I don't know.
Cool, cool. Grab the ham.
Grab the ham.
Al moves on to handle the ham.
Yeah, there we go. All right, grab that cheese.
Get that cheese, Al. Come on, Al!
Al has actual butter fingers!
And can't get the wrapping off the cheese.
No, no, no, be careful. Don't rip the cheese. There we go.
Be careful. Right there, right there.
Al has finally released his cheese, but he's also torn it,
and not all of it's in the sandwich.
Shantha may not be impressed.
Yep, yep. Flip it.
-A bit more. One more rotation.
Bit of a sarnie setback here.
This isn't easy, Ben!
Well, that was certainly enthusiastic.
Poor Shantha is left to inspect Team USA's sorry sandwich.
But now I can stand back and watch Team UK implode.
Steve's the hands, Ben's the eyes.
-All right, Steve. We need the bread. Here it is.
Go on. Tear into it, Steve, like you tear into those records.
Steve tosses aside the loaf.
He means business!
That's nice. That's the first slice.
Yeah, lovely, lovely, lovely.
Beautiful butter work from The Sizzler!
The ham's on.
But the cheese is buried!
Move it. Another slice. Go, go.
All thanks to Steve's impetuous loaf-lobbing at the start.
Down the other side.
Steve's unwrapping is super slow.
Can we move over? And it goes there.
But admire how neat and delicious it looks.
Great, Steve. That's lovely. One down there.
Top tomato topping there. Just bread and flag to go.
Bread goes down. That's lovely. Is victory within our buttery grasp?
Stick it in the bread... Yes!
Savour the sight of our superior sarnie!
Look at it compared to your mashed-up mess.
Well, you may have had the finesse, but did you have the speed?
We won't know until after Cheeky and Cherry's first team event ever.
SHE SPEAKS JAPANESE
He's struggling to get that lid off.
Different tactic here as Cherry holds his bread while buttering it.
But is that thumb preventing complete coverage?
To be valid, the butter must be spread all over the bread.
I wonder what Cheeky's saying to him.
Only one way to find out.
-Hi, Haruka. Could you
translate what Cheeky is saying for us?
Sounds like she's instructing Mr Cherry on how to make a sandwich.
Love to the baby!
There you go, Ben.
Brilliant. Whatever she's saying, it's working.
Oh, but there's an errant tomato slice!
It's back in.
Super sanger sorcery!
But will all the sandwiches pass official adjudicator
Shantha's stringent sarnie standards?
And do we have a record?
There's still the all-important competitive point to play for.
..you had an invalid attempt because you ripped your cheese.
So you are disqualified.
Yes, and sadly it's not the first time Team USA has ripped
the cheese today either.
-Oh, yeah, sorry about that.
..you had an invalid attempt
because you did not fully butter
Cherry looks distraught.
you had a valid attempt.
And a time of two minutes and one second.
-Look at that!
-Look at that, Ben!
In a team of two records fraught with failures,
none were committed by Team UK!
Two wins on the trot sends Steve storming to the
top of the leaderboard.
The British are coming!
This is Ted Baber, a champion barefoot water-skier.
Which is basically water-skiing, but without skis!
That means Ted is skidding along the top of the water at high
speed with nothing at all on his feet.
Not even a pair of socks!
Today, he's attempting the record for...
And this is what a tumble turn looks like when you are water-skiing.
But if he fails, he could always try a longest bum slide record.
Here are the rules.
Each tumble turn must be a full 360 degree rotation,
starting and ending in a standing position
No footwear is permitted.
And the target is 17 tumble turns in 30 seconds.
This is a dangerous record!
So we have a safety boat
and a tiny paramedic on standby.
Back in The Bunker, a monumental 85% think Ted will be a tumbling
triumph, but what do you reckon?
Let's see how he does.
The arm on the side of the boat allows Ted to ski next to it
rather than behind.
And he's close enough to be able to communicate
with his experienced driver, Rod.
Remember, Ted is a trained professional who's been doing
this for years.
Whilst Ted is ready,
he'll give official adjudicator Mark the nod to start the clock.
And he's off!
And straight away, he's into his tumble turns.
Remember, it's 17 needed for the record,
so Ted needs to rotate quicker than once every two seconds.
Oh, look at him go! Look at that!
Look at this!
He starts on his feet,
lowers to his bum,
rotates on his back,
and then pulls himself back to his feet again.
That is taking immense strength and incredible balance,
particularly as he's skating across the lake at around 40mph.
Look how Ted spins one way first, then the other!
Presumably, that stops him from getting dizzy, losing control,
and spiralling across the lake like a watery whirling dervish!
And that's it!
He lets go and skitters towards shore like a skimming stone.
Look at that!
-He's on his bum!
-He's on his bum!
Terrific tumble turning.
But did he manage the 17 needed for the record?
It's over to official adjudicator Mark.
On that occasion, you achieved
-Oh, just short!
Well, you said you could go faster,
so do you think you've got that one more tumble turn at least in you?
Yeah, I reckon I could get that, yeah.
Ted goes again, tumbling and turning his way through another wild
and wet 30 seconds out on the water.
And this time...
On that occasion,
..18, which is a brand-new Guinness World Record!
He's done it!
Ted may feel like he's just been through the rinse cycle
in a washing machine, but it must be worth it for that new world record.
Now for one of our legends to also get a thorough soaking
courtesy of Adam, our choosy audience member of the day
who put Sizzler in the gunge tank
so that Ray and Cherry can attempt the record for...
A wise choice, as our two most athletic competitors give
everything in a bid to hit the target of 85 jumps.
Do they do it and save the Sizz?
Today, you managed...
..nothing, because Mr Cherry broke the rules after his first jump.
Which means the Sizz gets another good gunging.
This machine is my favourite thing ever!
See you next time.
