today's show and you can, too.
And not only that, Al Jackson's here.
That's right. Hello! Hi, good to see you, Ben.

Try not to touch it, Al. Thank you.
Now, it's time to feast your eyes on everything you can look forward to

An astounding assemblage of Guinness World Record title attempts.
And there's more.
Our esteemed bunker guests will be trying to predict the result of
every record, with the chance to earn themselves
a starring role in our final challenge.
And our Officially Competitive Legends are back.
Ready to compete for a resplendently ridiculous array of world records
that you can try at home.
Starting right now.
It's time to strike up our brand-new house band as we welcome the
four-time Officially Competitive Champion.
Can the great man ever be beaten?
It's Mr Cherry.
# Brace yourself It's a man from Japan
# The four-time competitive champion
# Ray and Steve never had a chance
# Of beating the man with the spangled flags
# Who can break records like nobody else can?
# Ch-Ch-Ch-Ch-Ch-Ch... Cherry can! #
HE SPEAKS OWN LANGUAGE
Beautiful words. The crowd are hungry for more
and we will not disappoint.
Bring on the onesie-wearing wonder, US Ray!
# Good things come in small packages they say
# But they don't come much smaller than US Ray
# The pocket rocket breaks a record today
# Everybody wants US
# It's US Ray Hey! #
Extraordinary scenes as Ray ditches his signature onesie.
Like a beautiful butterfly emerging from a patriotic chrysalis.
From America's butterfly to the UK's record-breaking...
moth? He's also dressed up specially for the occasion.
It's the Sizzler.
-# It's Sizzling Steve
-It's Sizzling Steve
-# We do believe
-We do believe
-# What mundane skills
-What mundane skills
-# Has he got up his sleeve
-Has he got up his sleeve
# Well you can send him any test
# And he will yearn to be the best
# Cos he's a record-breaking legend Sizzling Steve. #
High octane stuff, a special final flourish from the Sizzleoid.
Our three wild-eyed warriors are ready for battle,
but before we reveal their first daunting challenge,
Haruka and I come bearing a world record attempt from China involving
this fella, Arsenal the dog,
who, like all football teams, travels everywhere by pushchair.
And with the assistance of his human owner, Xu Ligang,
he'll tackle the record for...
Which means he must reach this step using only his back legs.
Wow! Look at that! Has someone stuck cotton wool on a meerkat?
I have no idea,
but I can tell you that this is where the Bunker audience
-come into play.
They will try and predict the outcome of every record
with the chance to earn themselves a vital role in their final challenge
at the end of the show.
And 85% of them are predicting an Arsenal win.
Do you think he'll do it? Let's find out.
Arsenal squats in silent meditation.
Hm, are you sure it's a meditation he's doing?
Shh, Ben. He's going...
-..but not like that.
Wow, he flies up those stairs!
What speed, what grace, what majesty.
What a good dog.
But did he make it in under 18.19 seconds?
He smashed the record!
Just as 85% of the Bunker crew predicted.
-Haruka, can you hear that?
-The rumbling of greatness.
Our legends are ready for round one of Officially Competitive:
The Bunker Games.
And I can reveal that today,
our heroes will attempt the record for...
The custard cream, the bourbon, the ginger snap.
In the hands of our legends,
the humble biscuit could be the means by which they achieve
Here are the rules.
Any commercially available cream-filled biscuits may be used,
sweet or savoury.
The biscuits must be placed on top of each other individually,
to form a tower.
Once the 30 seconds are up,
the tower must stand for a further five seconds without falling.
And for the world record,
our heroes need to stack 20 cream-filled biscuits in 30 seconds.
Let's delve into the minds of our competitors,
starting with last year's joint loser.
Steve, this first record,
you can use any commercially available biscuit.
-Which have you gone for?
-A German biscuit.
-Can I have a look at this biscuit?
No, they're under wraps at the moment.
That's normally how biscuits arrive.
Surely, this has got your name written all over it.
-I mean, that shirt certainly has.
Oh, yeah, it does.
There's only one name on my lips -
back-flipping powerhouse US Ray.
Can we just talk a little bit about last year, man?
-Because, Ray, you sucked.
-Are you tired of losing?
-I'm sick of losing.
-You like cookies, right?
-I love cookies.
The big question is, what kind of cookie are you going to use?
Look at this classic design right here.
Who could say no to such a beautiful design?
-This right here is made for stacking.
-Give me one second,
cos I think you've got a phone call. It's victory on one.
Oh, success, this is Ray Butler.
-How you doing?
-Guys, while he's on the phone, we'll be right back.
This series, Haruka won't be joining us in the Bunker,
as she's very recently given birth to a baby girl.
This is not her.
So, we welcome a new member of Team Japan, Cherry's life coach,
guru and style icon, Chikki.
Cherry, you have bought a Japanese special biscuit with you.
-'Behold these slender delights, they will win the day.
'And not only that, they're...
So, who do you think will be the biscuit-stacking supremo?
The Bunkerites have voted and a whopping 44%
of them think Cherry will win. Understandable confidence
in the reigning champion, who will open the competition.
Mr Cherry, are you ready?
Are you ready? Go!
Three, two, one, go.
And we're off!
A tremendous start from the big man.
Fingering those creamy treats with the authority you'd expect from a
But look at his hand shaking.
Is the pressure of a live audience getting to Cherry?
He's building at a phenomenal pace.
But that tower is swaying.
Five, four, three...
Oh, and it nearly went.
But some sublime biscuitry saves the day.
Whoa! Did Cherry stack that last biscuit in time?
And, more importantly,
can his precarious pylon survive the five-second countdown?
A magnificent display of world-class biscuit stacking.
Soon to be beaten by my man, US Ray.
A confident start. That's three stacked and none eaten.
Quick work, Ray. The view from Biscuit Cam
is that of a perfectly aligned tower.
Sadly, the view from every other cam is of some kind of miniature,
OK, so it's not perfect.
But it's still standing.
Ooh, think steady thoughts, America.
What's he doing? He's stopped before the 30 seconds is up.
-Come on, Ray!
-He had no choice.
When your tower is teetering on the brink of toppling,
you stop topping that tower.
And the Leaning Tower of, erm, Ray survives.
Step forward Steve and his keks.
That's German for biscuit.
Feast your eyes on how meticulously Steve has laid out his keks.
Not only that, it he's chosen two different sized keks for his stack.
Poetry in motion already.
Just look at how unfazed the Sizzler was at that early biscuit
-He's a hawk-eyed speed stacker.
Homing in on the next tasty target as he picks up each cookie.
The Sizz means bizz...
ness. And just listen to the roar of the home crowd.
They're dragging him on, one German biscuit at a time.
And he's on to the small ones. First-class cookie construction.
And not a flutter during the five-second countdown.
A superbly sturdy stack.
And doesn't he know it?
We've seen three towering performances.
Shh! But did anyone reach the world record target of 20?
Only official adjudicator Shantha can tell us.
Do we have a new world record?
-Yes, we do.
And I can confirm that two of our competitors
-broke the record target.
But who has taken the biscuit and made history,
-In third place...
with a total of 12 biscuits, is...
Our first celebration of last place from Team USA of the series.
And in first place...
with a record-breaking total of 26 biscuits, is...
A perfect start from the champion.
One event, one world record.
That last-second biscuit took Cherry out of reach,
beating Sizzler by just one, to start where he left off,
at the top of the leaderboard.
Just like 44% of our audience knew he would.
Our Titans will be back later in the show,
when two of them join forces for the first time ever
to attempt a world record. But, if they fail,
they will condemn the remaining competitor to our shiny new...
The victim of the gunge tank will be chosen by one of the top predictors
-in the Bunker audience.
-So, they need to concentrate,
as we step outside the Bunker for something spin-credible.
Meet hula hooping hero, Marawa the Amazing.
Marawa already holds five hula hooping world records.
She can hula 200 hoops at the same time.
She already holds the record for the fastest 100m hula,
and today she's going for...
Marawa the Amazing, welcome to Officially Amazing.
-Thank you for having me.
-Someone who's not very good at hula hooping,
-where might they be going wrong?
-With the hoop.
It's always the hoop's fault.
It's not you. When you actually want to spin it and get it going,
a lot of people think they have to do some weird move with their knees
and throw their arms around. It's a very small, tiny push.
And it's actually forwards and backwards,
it's not round and around in circles.
Ah, so the hoop goes round, but you don't?
-So, what's the most difficult bit is the whole attempt, then?
Is it going to be the running or the hooping or everything combined?
It's like that thing. It's like two different sets of timing,
cos it's the timing of the hoop, so it doesn't fall down,
and the timing of running really fast.
So, Marawa's just checking out the course at the moment,
to see that's up to spec for her. Obviously, she wants to make sure
-there's no divots or anything. How's it looking, all right?
I mean, obviously, she's go to be going faster than that,
and there's unlikely to be a dog on the course.
I'll just tell you this, I ran it at full pelt without a hula hoop,
it took me 7.5 seconds.
And she's got to do the whole thing, with a hula hoop, in ten or under.
It's going to be tough.
Well, there can be no hula without some rula...
The hoop must be revolving before Marawa crosses the start line.
And must keep revolving throughout.
She can't touch the hula hoop with her hands.
And if the hoop drops to the floor, the attempt is over.
For the world-record, Marawa has to hula 50m
in just ten seconds or less.
Can she do it?
Well, our Bunker brigade have made their predictions,
and a huge 84% of them think she will.
What do you think? Let's find out.
Marawa, are you ready to go for hoop and glory?
-For the record...
Three, two, one...
It's a fantastic start. She's flat-out sprinting,
and yet the hoop's gliding around without even a wobble.
She's making it look easy.
But check out Marawa's stomach muscles -
they're working to the absolutely limit.
This is fast, this is really strong.
Brilliant! Great race, lovely stuff.
That was ridiculously fast.
Let's watch her again without the slow-mo.
-No, I still can't figure out how she does it.
She's guffawing in the face of gravity.
But was it faster than the ten seconds she needs for a record?
Over to official adjudicator, Mark.
It was 8.76 seconds.
-It's a brand-new Guinness World Records title!
Yes! Hula celebration! Whoo! 8.76 seconds!
She got the record with over a second to spare.
Heavenly hula hooping.
Marawa, you're not just amazing, you're Officially Amazing.
Just like the 84% of our audience who knew you'd do it.
Including Jay, who gets a high five from his hero, me!
Dreams do come true(!)
Now, our Bunker crew have just one more prediction to make before one
of them sends Cherry, Ray or Steve to the...
..as Haruka and I step outside for some peace and quiet.
Oh, I tell you what, Haruka,
there's nothing better than the great outdoors.
It's so quiet, so peaceful, so serene.
-I truly feel at one with nature.
-What are you talking about, Ben?
We're here to see these guys, and these guys are making noise!
Meet the Bolddogs...
Three of the world's finest freestyle motocross riders.
These bombastic bikers have even appeared as evil Hydra bikers in...
But today, they could really hit the big-time,
as they attempt the world-record for...
This is a heel clicker. And the team need to perform them
one after the other as quickly as they can.
But first, I'm going to chat to them in front of the giant haystack
and wow them with my comedy genius. Ahem!
Dan, Samson, Aaron - can I be the first to say...
hay? What's up?
Welcome to Officially Amazing.
Just briefly, what's the most dangerous thing you think that
-you've ever done on bikes?
-Probably trying to learn to do backflips.
-The learning bit?
-Yeah, been in quite a few crashes
-and scary moments.
-What's the worst thing you've ever done?
My ankle, I broke the talus in that.
I've broken both collarbones, shoulder,
both humerus bones.
-These are false teeth.
-I've snapped the end of my elbow pretty good.
-The end, yes, the very ball...
That's nasty. Proof, if proof were needed,
that this kind of stunt is ridiculously dangerous.
Let's get the rules. Each heel clicker must involve heel-to-heel
contact to be valid.
And only jumps that are landed successfully will count.
The world-record target is nine heel clickers in one minute.
This is such a dangerous record,
we have a paramedic and a fire crew on standby.
Which means you should never try anything like this
on your own wheels.
And it's not just the threat of injury that's a worry -
the boys have been perfecting their heel clickers in training,
but have never tested themselves over one minute.
So, how many heel clickers do you think they'll get?
80% of the Bunker think they'll achieve the nine needed.
Time starts when rider one enters the ramp.
Dan goes first.
And pulls a humdinger of a heel clicker.
And that's Aaron.
All three safely over.
Has there ever been three slicker heel clickers?
-I don't think so.
-And now they race back to the start and go again.
-They're making it look so easy.
But it requires a huge amount of skill.
They launch the bike into the air, throw themselves off the seat,
click their heels...
And somehow manage to sit back down and safely land the jump.
Whoo! 'I'm scared just watching!'
It is incredibly dangerous, but they are highly trained riders.
Don't ever try it yourself at home.
Oh, no! Aaron's heels didn't connect.
That jump won't count.
That's more like it. Come on, boys.
-Oh, that's it.
-Oh, that's it!
An extraordinarily impressive display.
But did they reach that record target of nine?
Over to official adjudicator, Mark.
More than one were disqualified, because the heels didn't click when
performing the jump.
In the minute time frame, you achieved...
..13, which is a brand-new Guinness World Records title!
Frenzied scenes as the lads smash it.
Even two disqualified clicks couldn't stop them riding off with
-And with that, the record-predicting is over.
But which of these brainiacs were the best predictors in the Bunker?
Let's hear it for...
-And my man, Jay!
They all predicted the outcome of today's records with an incredible
accuracy of 98.1% or more.
But only one will be chosen by our supercomputer to take part in our
final record-breaking challenge.
I can reveal that person is...
-And what a celebration!
-But who is this hero?
-Well, here's what we know.
Andrew plays the guitar.
He loves tangy cheese-flavour crisps.
And the sound of the air horn.
-AIR HORN BLASTS
And his favourite kitchen utensil is the wooden spoon.
Andrew will now have to choose which of our magnificent Officialy
Competitive legends will join forces to attempt the record for...
And, of course, a dangerous water-based record such as this
requires certain safety protocols.
Step forward lifeguard to the stars, Al Jackson.
# I'll be ready. #
He's not trained, Andrew. Do not let the outfit fool you, OK?
Now, you need to make a choice -
two of our competitors are going to be stationed here, hooking ducks.
And other will face...
the gunge tank of doom!
Which of our three plucky competitive legends
are you going to choose to meet their possible fate?
Our brave warriors,
reduced to begging in a desperate bid to avoid the gunge?
-Oh, US Ray!
-Andrew, have you got any last words for Ray?
He said with a smile.
Cherry and Sizzler combining powers at last.
I've dreamt of this moment.
I shall call them...
Meanwhile, Ray's excitement about being first
in the gunge tank is palpable.
Can Chizzler save him from a gunging by breaking the record?
-Here are the rules.
-The competitors must alternately hook the ten
plastic ducks from a paddling pool.
Easy. And transfer them into a container with a diameter of 30cm.
The pool is within a circle of 2m in diameter.
If either competitor enters the circle,
the attempt will be disqualified. Shires duck optional.
If they hook all ten ducks in 45.73 seconds or under,
it's a world record.
If they don't...
Ray gets gunged.
Let's hook ducks!
Three, two, one...
-And so it begins.
Ray's fate is in Chizzler's hands.
But that's one.
Some swift hookmanship from Cherry gets them off to a great start.
-Go on, Steve!
And that's two ducks hooked.
-And in the bucket.
-And Mr Cherry's gone for the Ben Shires
patented duck there. Come on, Cherry!
Typical Shires, being difficult.
Oi! Oh, come on... Oh, no, he's given up!
Look at their record-breaking faces.
Focus, determined, ready for daring ducky do.
But are they hooking these ducks quickly enough?
Ray doesn't look worried, but maybe he should?
Come on, we don't want Ray to get gunged.
Or do we? Andrew, do we?
-Erm... We do.
-We do, we do want Ray to get gunged!
Sizzler's scuttling like an angry crab around the ring,
as Cherry struggles with the penultimate duck.
-But he's got it.
-Now just the Shires duck to go, and...
-We've witnessed precision rubber ducky recovery at its finest.
But have they quacked the record?
If not, it's a gunging.
The record to beat stands at 45.73 seconds.
You managed a time of...
Chizzler, locked in a hopeful embrace.
Ray, locked in a box with a sea of gunge hanging over his head.
One minute and one seconds.
-So, no world record.
Ducky devastation for Ray!
That failed attempt will have very gungey consequences.
Strangely, the crowd seemed delighted.
-Three, two, one...
US Ray, eight-time world record breaker,
first person on the show
to get smothered in some kind of rancid bogey juice.
Look away, America. Look away.
A gungey end for Ray. Thank you ever so much to Andrew.
We'll see you next time. Bye!
# Well, Marana's hula running was really quite stunning
