What do you have to do to beat Travis Fessler’s new world record? Stuff 12 adult Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches into your mouth to top his effort of successfully squishing 11 of them into his.
Fessler held the 11 cockroaches--all a minimum length of 2-1/2 inches--in his mouth for the required 10 seconds. All the roaches survived the attempt, which is also a condition of qualifying for the Guinness World Record.
The 35-year-old Fessler from Kentucky has been raising hissing cockroaches for more than 3 years. The previous record, set by John LaMedica, was 9 cockroaches.
I'd rather have a shot at the jelly bean record!
