DENVER (CBS4) – A Colorado man is heading to China this weekend to try and break a world record on live television.

Bryan Spotts is a Guinness world record egg balancer.

“My wife makes anything you think of out of eggs,” Spotts said.

Spotts knows eggs – specifically how to balance them — and quickly.

“An egg is designed to not roll off a cliff,” he said. “Most people, if they can balance an egg at all, it’s going to take them 5 to 10 minutes.”

He will be putting this skill to the test this month in Shanghai to break the current record for fastest time to balance a dozen eggs.

“Central Chinese television’s Guinness World Record show is going to pick us up,” Spotts said.

He’s no stranger to the art of egg balancing, or the title. Back in 2003 the then college student broke the record of most eggs balanced at once with 1,290 eggs.

“I actually invented the category of fastest time to balance a dozen eggs — for myself.”

Eleven years and multiple records broken later, he’s now going to try and take back his title by balancing a dozen eggs in less than 75 seconds.

“This is on the Guinness show, so it’s all done … the judicator is there, he will observe everything.”

Spotts and his wife leave for China Sunday, and hopefully will return yet again the world record holder, and then get back to enjoying his eggs scrambled — instead of balanced.

“I don’t do this all the time,” he said with a laugh. “Most of the time in between records I’ll balance an egg maybe once a month.”
