Most people run at the sight of one bee, but fearless Ruan Liangming (China) covered his entire body in the stinging insects during a nail-biting attempt to create the ultimate “bee beard”.
By placing 60 queen bees on his body, Ruan was able to attract about 637,000 of the flying creatures.
This terrifying record was achieved on the set of a recent Italian TV show, filmed in China.
Official Guinness World Records adjudicators were there to judge the record - standing a safe distance away, of course!
Ruan set a record for the Heaviest mantle of bees because the "bee beard" weighed a whopping 63.7 kg (140 lb 6.95 oz).
The experienced performer told Guinness World Records: “The challenger must keep calm when dealing with bees. Bees will die once they sting you, so they usually avoid stinging unless they think you’re threatening them. If you notice bees are in an ‘unsteady’ mood, you need to figure out the reason quickly or stop the record attempt.”
