On a special Father’s Day-themed episode of Fox’s The F Word With Gordon Ramsay, the celebrity chef and his daughter Tilly decided to challenge a quick-handed Washington restaurant owner for the Most eggs cracked one-handed in a minute (team of two).
Competitor Ross McCurdy first broke the individual record in 2011, cracking an impressive total of 32 eggs in just 60 seconds.
After defending his title for the last six years, Ramsay decided it was time for McCurdy to prove his skills by attempting a father-daughter version of the record.
Chef Ramsay and Tilly were faced with the task of beating an already-experienced, passionate title holder.
Though award-winning Ramsay had just achieved his first Guinness World Records title for savvy fish-filleting last week, Ross McCurdy has held two other food-related record titles in his lifetime, for Most pancakes made in an hour and Farthest throw and catch of a grape.
With this in mind, the Michelin Star chef and his daughter geared up to battle Ross and his daughter Mira at Underwood Family Farms in Moorpark, California, where both would have to break the minimum requirement of 28 eggs to qualify as official record holders.
In this compelling attempt, the challengers needed to take alternate turns cracking the eggs into individual containers, ensuring their teammates egg has fully landed before picking up their next egg.
While all four participants were eager to win, regulations state that no egg shell can fall into the container in order for it to count towards the final total.
Did they crack under the pressure? Find out in the episode below:
