Two LIVE with Kelly and Ryan producers have just broken a long sought after record, and you SWEATER believe it’s one for the books!
After four gallant attempts to achieve the Guinness World Records title for the most jumpers put on in 30 seconds (team of two), the hosts of LIVE with Kelly and Ryan are yet to bring home the title.
In a twist of fate, after Kelly and Ryan’s most recent attempt, two of the show’s producers, Jan Schillay and Jim Niebler, smashed the record.
Once the cameras stopped filming, Jan and Jim came up with their own strategy.
After carefully constructing the scene, the producers proved their skills span farther than behind the scenes!
With a grand total of nine sweaters, on site Adjudicator Michael Empric was able to confirm that the pair had successfully achieved the record.
Annually, Guinness World Records and Live with Kelly and Ryan team up for Record Breaker Week.
A full week of record breaking, Record Breaker Week celebrates record-breaking fun during the month of September.
On 15 September 2022, Kelly and Ryan first attempted the record for the most jumpers put on in 30 seconds (team of two).
The on-air pair strategized and decided to have Ryan be the one to put the sweaters on, while Kelly’s role was to assist with adjusting and pulling the sweaters as needed.
Kelly kicked off her heels to assist Ryan as her co-host kneeled in position, bracing himself for what they were sure would be the record attempt that would finally take the cake.
“I’ll be helping Ryan because frankly, he’s never dressed himself,” joked Kelly.
“I’m in the zone please. I dress with normally a lot of quiet and not a lot of eyeballs,” said Ryan.
As in sync as the charismatic co-hosts are, their chemistry did not translate to dressing one another.
While it was an extremely close attempt, they walked away with seven sweaters.
“This is a stupid game,” Kelly exclaimed.
