BKA names would be
#3 is Hanging Triangle Lighthouse
#8 is Whirlpool 1-Turn Lighthouse

Nice looking ball... Does it represent the blue sky & sea, and the green land of Reunion? :-)

So Jake. I'm sorry to tell you that but you can't win with this run for obvious reasons. I mean that i think everyone here noticed that you did't hold lighthouse 3 sec. each time (the countdown starts when the ken stops moving). Most of the time, you held it only 1 or 2 sec. Sometimes you just did't hold it! I hope you understand that it is very important to read the rules and recpect them for more equality between players. By the way i'm sure you can do it cleaner so try again today. You still can win!

Impressive, even thou the lack of 3 secs. I'm sure he's able to do it properly, looking forward to the next video of Jake with the proper stillness of the lighthouse.

Flicked on the computer this morning, saw the ladder and thought "that'll be there for a while" especially with the the two tricks coming at the end: shows how much I know :) !  Quality skills, Jake, but the setter/ prize giver calls the rules too.....
Give it another go, I have a feeling that if you can nail all these tricks back to back, then holding a lighthouse for three seconds shouldn't be too much of a problem!

(Then YOU can be the setter and make everyone hold their lighthouses for as long as you want ;) )
