Man With Longest Tongue in The World Breaks Jenga World Record
The California man with the world's longest tongue, who broke the record for the fastest time to remove five Jenga blocks with his tongue, already held the record for the longest tongue (male). He did this in 1 minute and 58 seconds, which was a record.
Nick Stoeberl, who is from the U.S. city of Salinas in the state of California, has a skill that breaks many records.
Nick has the world's longest male tongue, which is 10.1 cm long (3.97 in). It can fit five ring doughnuts because it is so long.
"I’ve always sort of known I’ve had a long tongue, just like you would know if your hand was bigger," said Nick.
" It was helpful to be in the back seat and stick my tongue out at other people on long car rides."
Chad, Nick's younger brother, also has a very long tongue.
"As kids, we stuck out our tongues at each other enough that we could say, "Hey, we have some long tongues."'."
Nick Stoeberl of Salinas, whose tongue was measured at 3.97 inches, broke his first Guinness World Record by taking five Jenga blocks out of a stack in 55.526 seconds.
Stoeberl said that being a Guinness World Record holder has changed his life in several ways. He now has a following on social media, which allows him to reach a wider audience and share his message of positive self-love. He also paints with his record-setting tongue.
"It's a lot of fun, and I read the books when I was a kid, so to be in them is a huge honor." Said Nick.
After breaking the record for the fastest time to remove five Jenga blocks with the tongue, he has added another title to his collection.
Nick is a talented artist whose tongue is his main tool for painting. He is grateful for the opportunity to use his unique anatomy to do more than just create artwork.
Nick was feeling creative, so he decided to make some art with his tongue before trying to break his latest record.
“I’ve got a great subject for you to paint—a classic image that I think will look beautiful hanging in this office,” said Guinness World Records Editor-in-Chief Craig Glenday.
“It’s me. Paint me like you paint your French girls.”
So, Nick put a piece of plastic over the tip of his tongue and started painting right away.
“This is protection,” he said.
“Always protection first.”
Nick says that as an artist, he's been greatly influenced by Andy Warhol and his famous Campbell soup can paintings. He even uses it as motivation to create his own brilliant pieces of art.
He also admits that having a long tongue can be both practical and social, since it can be a great icebreaker.
Nick says that his long tongue doesn't necessarily improve his sense of taste, but it does help him clean up after he eats.
“If I am eating and my face becomes dirty, I can lick the food off my face right away,” said Nick.
“It’s eco-friendly, no napkins needed.”
Nick tried to break the record for the most tongue-to-nose touches in one minute. He did this to show everyone how useful his tongue is.
The record to beat was 281 tongue-to-nose touches, but Nick only did 246 of them, which is 35 less than the record.
He then tried to break the record for the fastest time to remove five Jenga blocks with the tongue. He did this to get his glory back.
Nick and his tongue beat the record by 55.526 seconds. The record was one minute.
Nick said he was "thrilled" to have broken the Guinness World Records title, and that it was "pretty insane" to achieve this.
Nick's record for the most consecutive days without a failure was first confirmed on November 27, 2012, and he has now been holding this record for almost a decade.
However, His Guinness World Records title has not only gained him recognition and bragging rights, but it has also helped him to raise money for charity.
He recently starred in a campaign for fashion brand Diesel called "For Successful Living." He is known for his record-breaking achievements in music and sports, and his appearance in the campaign is a testament to his success.
Nick is proud of his Guinness World Records titles and says his life has changed significantly since he first earned the record title for the longest tongue (male). Nick credits his long tongue with helping him achieve many life goals, including becoming a successful comedian. Nick says his life would not be the same without his Guinness World Records title and credits his long tongue with making him who he is today.
“I've been able to travel to different countries and meet different people from different cultures, all while enjoying great food,” said Nick.
He has been on TV shows all over the world. In 2018, he was on the Italian show La Notte Dei Record. He is a well-known musician and has even performed in some of the most prestigious venues around the world.
He met other record holders Byron Schlenker and Emily Schlenker (both USA), the father and daughter duo who held the record for the widest tongue (male) and widest tongue (female) respectively. While Byron's record has been broken Emily still retains her record.
