    Yeah, if the record was "Fastest time to pick up 10 jellybeans using only the mouth" that would make a lot more sense. The word 'Eat' suggests that there more involved...

    Since this is a new category and Jack is the original record setter, I would suggest for him to modify the rules or perhaps change the title to instead of "eat", how about fastest time to "pick up" using mouth

  • United States Jack Thompson

    I would change it if I could but I delete the videos once they are uploaded.

    I think the argument here is that the jelly beans aren't "eaten" until they are swallowed. Just holding them in your mouth shouldn't count.

    If you don't change the rules, I will just record an attempt in the next couple hours that actually follow the rules...

    I agree with The Viking, he still has them in his mouth at the end. Jack, should we change the rules?

  • United States Simon Kirk

    Also, you can't actually see them before it starts...

  • New Zealand TheViking

    This is a fun record.... just a quick question: In the rules it says you must begin and end attempt with a clear mouth, but it seems like all that happened was to pick up the jellybeans and hold them in your mouth - not actually eat them? So perhaps that rule needs to change?

    Fun, Jack! What sort of timer is that? Looks official! What other records are you going to create and break?
