TNT Breaks GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS(R) Record for World's Tallest Pancake Stack To Celebrate Friday's Premiere of "On the Menu"

On the Menu's Ty Pennington and Chef Emeril Lagasse Participate in Record-Setting Event

In celebration of the upcoming premiere of the new cooking competition series On the Menu, TNT has broken a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS(R) record for the World's Tallest Pancake Stack. Today in New York City's Times Square, TNT hosted a one-of-a-kind breakfast demo with On the Menu's Chef Emeril Lagasse and host Ty Pennington. The epic pancake stack reached 87.4 cm (approximately 34.4 inches), surpassing the previous record of 87 cm. On the Menu is slated to premiere tomorrow night, Oct. 3, at 8 p.m. (ET/PT), only on TNT.

TNT's On the Menu is the first cooking competition show ever to give viewers the chance to taste the winning dish after every episode. Each weekly competition will challenge a group of passionate home cooks to create a new signature dish for that week's featured restaurant. Eateries participating in On the Menu cover a wide range of cuisines, from traditional barbecue to modern fusion.

TNT's Times Square event kicked off with Chef Emeril Lagasse leading 300+ home cooks as they created their own On the Menu-worthy pancake breakfast featuring Lagasse's new seasonal pancake recipe. The home cooks also enjoyed some of Emeril's tips and tricks for preparing a hearty fall breakfast this harvest season.

While Emeril was working with the home cooks, Ty Pennington oversaw a team building the pancake tower for the attempt to break the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS(R) record for the World's Tallest Pancake Stack. An official GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS adjudicator was on-site to measure and certified the record upon completion.

Emeril Lagasse said this morning, "I've done a lot of things in my life, but I've never been part of breaking a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS record. It was an awesome moment to share with my fans in Times Square. Thanks to TNT, to my On the Menu co-host Ty Pennington and to the folks at GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS for giving us the opportunity to make it into the record books."

"I've been blessed in my life to be on the right side of crazy for a lot of things, and today 's breaking of the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS record with my pal Emeril Lagasse definitely ranks up there," said Ty Pennington. "One of the really great things about food and our new TNT series On the Menu is how the show brings people together, and that was evident in Times Square today when we got to cook with hundreds of food lovers from around the globe."

About TNT's On the Menu

On The Menu, executive-produced by Emmy(R) winner Mark Burnett (The Bible, The Voice, Survivor) is TNT's revolutionary new cooking competition show, premiering Friday, Oct. 3, at 8 p.m. (ET/PT).
