    People, we hear the uproar. This is an extremely difficult category to moderate. Upon further review and intense analysis (we stuffed hair up our own nostrils to test various methodologies), we are left with no option but to deny all submissions up to this point. None of the current videos provide definitive evidence of the hair pulled clearly being a nose hair.

    To compete in this category moving forward, you must show:

    1. A strong blow of the nose before attempt begins.

    2. A clear shot of the tweezers, with no hairs visible.

    3. A very tight shot of the nostril's interior as the hair is pulled.

    Strategically, we suggest focusing on hairs closer to the nostril's edge instead of a deep pull, which we won't be able to approve.

    Our apologies to those of you who've submitted videos up to this point. This category evolved to a place we'd never imagined. As always, please understand that we're making our decisions to the best of our abilities based on what seems most appropriate and fair.

    So what is going on with this one? If I have to, I can 'act' like these guys did, and pull out a 12 inch long hair out of nose

    your dishonesty here really makes me question the others you did

  • response to previous attempt United States Mitch Jankowski

    Mitch Jankowski

    neil clearly you are not honest on this one my guy...if you had a 3 inch nose hair, it would be hanging down by your lip, same with Jordan...that record is physically impossible

  • response to previous attempt Canada Dan Rollman

    Dustin We hear you. The length of hairs pulled by the category leaders does indeed raise questions. We will review all attempts tomorrow and respond with a decision.

    average nose hair CAN grow to 1 inch... when your 80!! check the website. I really doubt a 20 something year old pulled out one over 3 inches.. when the average for that age is 1/4 inch

  • response to previous attempt United States Dustin Barker

    Dustin Barker

    Stride. If I really have to, I'll stick a 4 inch hair in my nose and act like I pulled it out. Once again, a 3 inch nose hair would go from your eyebrows down to your lips? you went from 15 to 79? Just trying to restore the integrity to these competitions

    Now I know why you're complaining, you hold ZERO records hahahaha

  • response to previous attempt United States Dustin Barker

    Dustin Barker

    lol. and watch your first video. Your showing the hair your pulling out and they are all less than an inch. Nose hair is all the same (or at least close) length. This has to be denied, this is so fake

  • response to previous attempt United States Dustin Barker

    Dustin Barker

    u can't choose to break this record. It's if you have a long nose hair. I studied science in school my man, and nose hair is only at the base of your nose. If you has a 3 inch hair in there it would be hanging down to your chin. And nose hairs is stright, so it would curl around in your nose... hmmm? 15 mm to 32 to 52 to 75 to 79? seems a little fishy. It's all good. I know STRIDE can put 2 and 2 together. Its crazy you didnt pull out the 79 or even the 75 mm aone out the first time?? lol pathetic

  • response to previous attempt Canada Dan Rollman

    Dan Rollman

    Jordan Vernon Schuyler This attempt has already been broken, but to address Jordan and Veron's valid comment, we've raised this to 77. The video at 3:23 does indeed display that length.

    Go look at how many records I hold and then question my integrity. It's people like you that destroy this community: people who would rather pester and annoy others with false claims than break the records themselves. GET A LIFE hahaha, too low

  • response to previous attempt United States Dustin Barker

    Dustin Barker

    how do you go from a 15 mm hair at the beginning to one that is 3 inches? 3 inches is longer than most tweezers lol. I'm sure Stride can use some common sense here and realize that it is not legit. Your pulling out hairs, then you happen to pull out one that looks long enough to measure? but none of the other ones look like they are long enough to measure. all your hairs would be about the same length. No one has 3 inch long nose hair bro. oh well, I guess try to fool stride. Stride... really 15 mm to 79mm? he just happens to keep "barely" breaking the record every time someone else has it

  • response to previous attempt United States Neil Moallem

    Neil Moallem

    Dustin, I understand your concerns, but I can assure you that I am an honest record breaker. I don't have to reach that far into my nose to pull out a hair that long because I don't need to nab the hair at its root to pull it out. I will gladly blow my nose next time I decide to break this. You see, I am Middle-Eastern and am therefor very hairy, which is why I have such long nose hairs. I can only speak for myself

  • response to previous attempt United States Dustin Barker

    Dustin Barker

    And if you look at the broken records... these guys just keep happening to beat the record? Neil went from a 15 mm hair his first attempt to a 79mm hair, there is that big of a difference in his nose? And Jordan went from 20mm to 76mm? I would love for this to go to someone who is honest in their attempts.

  • response to previous attempt United States Dustin Barker

    Dustin Barker

    Listen- I seriously contemplated sticking a 80 millimeter hair in my nose, and then acting like I pulled it out, but I'm an honest person and I thought to myself just how ridiculous that is. I measured that out, its over 3.1 inches. I have long fingers and that is longer than my index finger. 79 millimeters is longer than my entire nose. I'm not second guessing you guys' judgement, but there is no way someone pulls over a 3 inch hair out of their nose. He wasn't even reaching 2 inches into his nose, yet he pulled out one 3 inches? I think you need to make the person blow their nose before the attempt. I could stick a 4 inch hair up my nose and act like I pull it just to win 500 bucks. Just trying to keep people honest here. thanks!

    Schuyler - Also 3:23 you can clearly see it's all the way at the end starting at 0. So I'm with Jordan.

    Jordan - 3:23 you say 'going from the 1 - all the way down to 77'

  • response to previous attempt United States Jordan Brown

    Jordan Brown

    Rob, I don't understand what you mean. The end of the ruler is zero, not one. I can't see a point in the video where it looks like it begins at 1.

  • response to previous attempt United States Jordan Brown

    Jordan Brown

    Ok now I understand what you're talking about. When I was measuring it I called the beginning "one". I meant zero, but don't normally consider counting it as such. As Vernon said, the measurement begins at zero despite what I said.

  • response to previous attempt United States Rob Birdsong

    Rob Birdsong

    Jordan - a member of out team just mentioned that your measurement begins at 1mm and goes all the way to 77m. Thus making your nose hair length 76mm.

  • response to previous attempt United States Jordan Brown

    Jordan Brown

    Neil, while I don't like being accused of cheating, you do make valid points. It's up to the judges. I can always redo it if my integrity is questioned. It's not like I'm running short on nose hair.

  • response to previous attempt United States Neil Moallem

    Neil Moallem

    I would like to point out to Stride that we never actually saw the hair come out of his nose. He could have had the hair sitting on that piece of paper the entire time because he never showed the paper at the beginning of the video to show that there wasn't already a hair on it

  • response to previous attempt United States Schuyler Van Horn

    Schuyler Van Horn

    FYI - 32mm is just about an 1.5 inches. This one's definitely getting marked as 'gross'.
