The longest duration of fire torch teething is 5 min 26 sec, and was achieved by Andre Ortolf (Germany), in Augsburg, Germany, on 7 February 2021.
Andre is a serial record breaker, but this is not like his usual speed eating or more comical attempts.
When asked how he found stepping out of his comfort zone for this attempt, he said:
"[I found it] very difficult. it is very unusual for a flame to burn just above your face. You have to get used to the heat."
Andre sought advice from full-body burn record breaker Denni Düsterhöft, who previously held the Guinness World Records title for the longest distance run full-body burn without oxygen back in 2012.
