Record Breaking with Ryan Seacrest

Many would say that Ryan Seacrest should be in the Guinness Books of World Records for keeping up his demanding schedule. Producer Ryan Seacrest and Kelly Ripa are back on the air and they are getting ready for the record.

All week on the show they are looking to break some world records. Ryan (@ryanseacrest) and the rest of the cast are looking to get their audience as well as hundreds of people passing by to help them set some new records. One of the records they looking to set was for the most people doing the floss dance move at the same time. About 350 people joined in to help with this record. Everyone in attendance had to dance the floss for one minute. The judges were watching to make sure everyone was participating. Ryan Seacrest tried to join along but had trouble dancing and talking at the same time. They ended up breaking the records with 349 people doing the dance outside of the Live studio.

The record-breaking did not stop there. On the Live stage, a team of stunt acrobats tried to break the record for the most basketballs under the leg slam dunks by a team using a trampoline. They had one minute to try to break the record. There was an official judge brought to the Live stage to check out the action. The team was able to set a new world record with 27 baskets in this time. Read this article from mensjournal.com about Ryan’s weight loss struggle.

Also this week there were grape stompers trying to set a record as well as a competition for the fastest time of trying to wrap someone up with wrapping paper.

These are some of the record-breaking attempts that happened Live with Ryan and Kelly this week. While Ryan, the owner of Distinction, is very busy and with the show back from its vacation, this was a fun way to get back into the swing of morning talk shows
