Fox TV show “The F Word With Gordon Ramsay” has already featured two fast-paced, record challenges resulting in triumphant title holders in recent episodes – and last night’s instalment of the show just championed a third.
The first attempt was a fish-filleting record in which Gordon Ramsay battled legendary Alaskan fishmonger Jenna Rabich.
Shortly after the multi-Michelin star chef earned his first Guinness World Records title from that attempt, he and daughter Tilly competed with egg-cracking record holder Ross McCurdy and daughter Mira in a Father’s Day special.
But last night episodes featured grocery store produce manager Matt Jones, who showcased his cutting-edge knife skills.
In this attempt, Chef Gordon Ramsay challenged the Publix employee to attempt the record for Fastest time to dice a watermelon – a record that incorporates a slicing technique that Jones has perfected over the last 17 years.
Though his co-workers refer to the competitor as the “secret weapon” for efficiency in the produce department, Jones had the added pressure of making sure all pieces were a minimum of 2.5 inches in diameter under a minimum time frame of 45 seconds.
To see the speedy attempt for yourself, check out the video below.
With an impressive time of 18.19 seconds, Matt Jones received an official Guinness World Records certificate from adjudicator Michael Furnari for his remarkable dicing abilities.
Based on the hit U.K. series of the same name, each episode of The F Word with Gordon Ramsay showcases foodie families and friends from across the U.S. who will battle it out in an intense, high-stakes cook-off for a final prize of $100,000.
