Etibar Elchiyev is known as the world's most attractive man by the Guinness World Record not for good looks but because of his body working like a magnet. This 42-year-old man from Georgia is called "The Magnet Man."
He recently broke his own world record by the number of spoons his body can attract. His first ever world record was set two years ago in December 2011. Elchiyev works as a trainer for kickboxing. He claims that his body has some kind of magnetic force that can attract any kind of metal objects, most often the metal spoons. Yahoo News reported that he even aims to carry metals of bigger weights to the point of intending to raise up to 150 kilograms of weight with his own body.
A couple of years ago, the Magnet Man was successful in sticking 50 spoons on his own body. But on Saturday, he set a brand new world record of sticking a total of 53 metal spoons.
Apart from those who are amazed with Elchiyev, there are still those who remain doubtful of his talent. Nation.com.pk mentioned that there was even one commentator who said any metallic object can possibly stick to any smooth and hairless body. However, the world record holder remains true to his belief that his body truly has a magnetic power.
According to Elchiyev, it was several years ago when he discovered that he can attract a car hood towards his body even with a guy sitting in the car. A similar Guinness world record was made by Canadian Aaron Caisse who can balance spoons on his face. The record was set in Milan, Italy on April 19, 2009. He was able to balance 17 spoons on his face.
