# Officially, officially, officially... Amazing! #
Welcome to Officially Amazing.
Here's what's coming up in our fabulous finale.
He's forever blowing bubbles
but how will that help this soapy sorcerer break a world record?
And Officially Competitive reaches a scary, hairy climax, salon-style
but first, the return of an old friend.
The Space Cowboy, chainsaw-chucking champion, whip-wielding warrior,
record-hungry hero and occasional utter meany pegs is back.
And today, he'll be taking danger to a whole new level
as he attempts the record for the...
And, yes, that really does mean Spacey will be flinging a running
chainsaw about while spinning his body in circles.
It sounds terrifying because it is.
Let's get his thoughts.
Do you ever feel an element of fear or are you so confident that you
think, "Right, it's absolutely fine"?
I'm absolutely terrified.
I've got to keep being a little bit scared otherwise I'll get too
-nonchalant with it so...
-..you've got to have a bit of nerves
-in order to stay safe.
-Is this even possible?
-We'll have to wait and find out.
-Good luck, Space Cowboy.
I'll leave you to prepare your machine. Here are the rules.
Three objects must be juggled with at least one of them being
a running chainsaw.
After each throw of the chainsaw, there must be a pirouette.
If any object is dropped, the attempt is over.
And the target for this new world record
is four consecutive pirouettes.
Spacey will be using a specially adapted chainsaw
and he's wearing a pair of sturdy boots to help protect his toes.
Paramedic Dave is standing by for this genuinely dangerous record.
Remember, Spacey is an expert.
He's been practising for years and knows exactly what to do in
Do not try this yourself.
Space Cowboy, how are you feeling?
I'm a little bit nervous about this one to tell the truth.
Yeah. Well, you and me both.
So we're going to retreat back to a safe distance.
Mark, it's over to you.
OK, Space Cowboy, in your own time.
Spacey starts without pirouetting to find his juggling rhythm.
Even this is extremely perilous.
He has to be absolutely confident when he does start
because the four spins he needs for the record must be consecutive.
And he's off.
Ooh, I can hardly watch.
Yes, a safe catch. Incredible.
He has to put an exact twist on each throw of the chainsaw
to ensure he's catching the handle and not losing his fingers.
This is expertise in action.
Each pirouette must be getting riskier as dizziness sets in.
THUD 'Oh, no.' Oh. Whoa.
Whoa. 'Great footwork from Spacey.'
From all his practice,
he knew instinctively what to do in that situation.
Well, I'm just glad he finished with all his limbs intact.
But did he manage to complete at least four valid consecutive
Mark, it looked tremendous.
It looked scary.
Was it also a record?
I can tell you that you achieved...
-..five which is a brand-new Guinness World Records title.
Space Cowboy is a genuine giant from the world of jeopardous juggling.
Phew. After that, I think we need something a bit frothier
with Al and Haruka.
This is Su Chung Tai from Taiwan.
There's nothing this lord of the lather can't do with bubbles.
Yes, he can even set them on fire.
Don't try that at home.
Su is attempting the record for the...
The current record stands at 152
and this will be worth watching closely.
Binoculars out, everyone.
That's a nice, smooth start.
Oh, but the bubble has burst.
Was the weight of those virtually weightless bubbles just too much?
Attempt number two.
This looks better.
But how is anyone going to count all those bubbles?
The adjudicators watch a replay in super slow motion
so has he blown more than 152 bubbles?
Now, for three more bubbly personalities.
And now an epic contest meets its epic conclusion
as three epic competitors clash one last time in an epic world record
attempt you can epically try at home.
The Japanese gigant-osaurus,
The American immens-osaurus,
And the British strong silent-osaurus,
Previously on Officially Competitive.
Mr Cherry ping-ponged his way to victory to claim
his fourth, consecutive Officially Competitive title.
Steve and Ray must now battle to avoid coming last.
Mr Cherry will be crowned later.
But he still has one burning ambition left for this series.
Currently, our champ holds an amazing 19 world records.
But he is desperate to make it a glorious 20.
He's been practising tirelessly for today's event.
So, which wigs did our warriors want from this dazzling collection
that features the resplendent Shires quiff?
Raging red for US Ray.
Slinky sapphire for Sizzling Steve.
While Mr Cherry went rogue and brought this caramel number all
the way from Japan especially for this record.
So no-one chose the quiff then? Fine.
Let's get the team talks.
Steve, what makes a good wig for this record?
-Nice and thin.
Do we think we're going to get a record for this one, Steve?
-It's going to be a good try.
Sorry, Steve, but in the race for second place,
my man holds all the aces.
And also all the hair clips.
-If you had to pick a wig, did you pick one?
-Is it cool?
-Is it funky?
Ray, have you become a hair-clipping machine?
A high-velocity hair-clipping machine like a turbojet in the sky.
Ah, I love it.
Hair-raising stuff from Ray but what does the champ have to say?
In the next record, you'll be wearing a wig
which you brought all the way from Japan.
-Oh, aye, I've been with this wig for many a year.
Every day I wash it with shampoo and then expensive conditioner to keep
it soft, shiny and smooth
meaning the clips will snap on with minimum effort.
But before we get wiggy with it, let's get the rules.
Hair clips may be open before the attempt begins.
Once the 30 seconds are up, the clips must remain on the hair for
ten seconds to be valid.
And the record to beat, held by the USA's Lisa Eisenhart
is 64 hair clips.
-Steve's up first.
-Three, two, one...
I'm still a little hurt Steve's opted for the blue wig rather than a
Shires quiff tribute.
Sadly, Ben, you can't get many hair clips into a quiff
no matter how big and ridiculous it might be.
This doesn't seem very ordered.
This doesn't look good in so many ways.
Shantha must now count the clips.
Get your arm out of the way, Steve.
Ray's up next.
You have to admire that flaming hairpiece
but it's the superfluous tache that I applaud. Tremendous.
But the curls in his wig are hindering the clipping process.
Here we go.
Let the hair work for you. Let's go. Focus.
Yes, it seems he was seduced by the razzle-dazzle of those red tresses
and it may cost him dearly.
I'm afraid that is one of Ray's weaknesses.
He does sometimes make the stylish choice rather than the sensible one.
Let that hair work for you. Work it, Ray.
Red rug Ray is done for the day.
Onto the champ.
This is the big one.
Mr Cherry holds 19 world records.
He's utterly determined to make it 20 in this final show of the series.
He's laying out those clips with meticulous care
on his special clipping mat.
He's trained relentlessly for this record.
Tension fills the bunker.
I think we might be about to see something extraordinary.
This is sensational.
Mr Cherry is grabbing and clipping four hair clips at a time.
A revolutionary tactic in the field of wig-clipping.
Cherry's left nothing to chance.
His body, his mind and his hairpiece
have been thoroughly conditioned for this record.
Yes, those clips slide in perfectly
but can he eclipse that record of 64?
He just has to keep going.
Don't wig out on us now, Cherry-san.
-And that's it.
An incredible effort.
That was the greatest thing I've ever seen. Good job, Cherry.
Well, I've never felt an atmosphere in the bunker like this before.
The emotion is palpable.
The love for the great man is clear.
Lumps are in throats.
Tears are in eyes.
Hearts are in mouths.
Has he done it? Has his dream of a 20th world record come true?
Did we get a world record? Shantha, come on.
Calm yourself, Shantha. Calm yourself.
Who got that world record? And that last Officially Competitive point?
Well, in first place with a total of 66 clips...
..is Mr Cherry.
CHEERING Truly emotional scenes.
Cherry-san's fourth world record of the series and his 20th in total.
This man is Cherry-fyingly good.
So, Steve and Ray come equal second meaning no-one came last.
Well, Cherry wins a fabulous fourth successive title.
He's both an irresistible force and an immovable object.
Let us bow down to this regal, record-breaking royalty.
I am amazing.
A true champion of another Officially Amazing series.
See you again soon.
