ROME: An Australian woman has set a world record on an Italian game show by stopping the blades of a fan with her tongue.
Daredevil performer Zoe Ellis, known by her stage name Zoe L’Amore, appeared on Italy’s Lo Show dei Record to break her own Guinness World record for most electric fan blades stopped using the tongue in one minute.
Ellis held two 35W fans running at the highest speed and managed to top her previous record of 20 by sticking her tongue to stop the blades on each fan 16 times for a new record total of 32.

Her record was later surpassed by Ashrita Furman, who used her tongue to stop the blades 35 times, after the show was recorded.
Ellis’ household still holds multiple world records however, as she maintains the record for “Most mouse traps released on the tongue in one minute (female)” and her husband Chayne Hultgren, a.k.a. “The Space Cowboy,” holds records for “Most blow torches extinguished with the tongue in one minute,” “Most swords swallowed underwater and Heaviest weight pulled by the eye sockets.”
