On October 19th, 2012 the Television Show where Carisa Hendrix set the new world record for “longest duration fire torch teething”, Lo Show Dei Record in Rome, Italy AIRED THIS CLIP
Note: Fire torch teething refers to a fire-eating stunt which involves using one’s teeth to grip a flaming torch and holding it upright in the mouth without the use of one’s hands. This stunt is considered both dangerous and incredibly difficult. The intense pain from the fire on one’s mouth and teeth plus the inability to breathe throughout the performance of the stunt make this an impressive feat.
The record stood at an impossible 1 minute 32.75 seconds and was achieved by Wendell Gray in Mumbai, India. In training to break his record, I had to work on the trick every day for over a month before flying to Italy in April of 2012 for the chance of a lifetime.
