HOST OF SPIKE TV'S "ALL ACCESS WEEKLY" BREAKS THE GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS TITLE FOR "THE MOST HIGH-FIVES IN ONE MINUTE"

Katie Linendoll Holds The Current Guinness World Record With 107 High-Fives

Episode Airs This Thursday, April 19 at Midnight, ET/PT

New York, NY, April 17, 2012 - Spike TV announced today that Katie Linendoll, host of the network's new tech-centric show "All Access Weekly," has attempted and succeeded in breaking the current Guinness World Records(R) of the "Most High-Fives in One Minute." Perfectly executed in anticipation of National High-Five Day on Thursday, April 19, Linendoll slapped 107 hands in just 60 seconds to earn the Official Record Holder title. The full Guinness World Records(R) Official Attempt will air in an upcoming segment on this Thursday's upcoming episode of "All Access Weekly."

"I always wondered how hard it would be to break a Guinness World Record - this was pretty intense!" said Katie Linendoll. "This has been one of the most fun experiences, and I'm excited to have done it as a part of Spike's 'All Access Weekly' team."

According to Guinness World Records, nearly 50,000 Record Attempts are submitted each year and less than five percent succeed. Guinness World Record Adjudicators were on-location to verify the Guinness World Records Official Attempt and presented Linendoll with a certificate upon her successful completion.

The previous Guinness World Record Holder is Marcus Jahrling a.k.a. Mr. Giggles, a clown from the United Kingdom, who achieved the record on June 2011 with 101 high-fives in one minute.

Fans can watch Katie's successful attempt, as well as complete episodes and extended interviews on Spike's "All Access Weekly" page, allaccessweekly.spike.com, and can also follow the conversation on Twitter using #allaccess.
