    I know this is an old record but I do see RJ's point. The torch was in contact with her mouth - not IN her mouth. But if this is allowed, why not give it another attempt, RJ. Good luck.

    tee hee, "his mouth" I didn't notice that Tony. Thx for the compliment and the chuckle :)

    Carisa, you are very attractive for a guy (see info above right). And an impressive performance. I used to do some fire eating and I can see holding a torch for 5 or 6 seconds, so I was impressed

    Hey R.J The rules did not state how far in the mouth the torch needed to be, For this video I alternated between resting the torch against my bottom teeth and tongue for stability. I'd say that's pretty in there :)

    Don't want to be a pain but shouldn't the torch be more "submerged" in your mouth?

      It needs to be a considered way into the mouth or it will simply extinguish, as it does in regular fire eating. It also allows the fuel to wick up the torch as the teeth would provide a barrier to that happening, and again it would extinguish itself. I'm sure the judge had set out conditions that had to be met as well.
