The Bungee Jumpers Fulfilled Their Promises In Their THONcore On Sunday

As sure as the sun rising every morning, the Bucks County Bungee Jumpers fulfilled their prophecy when they returned to the THON stage at the beginning of the Final Four on Sunday.

After last night’s performance, I knew what I was getting myself into. This time, their mix kicked off with Darude “Sandstorm” and didn’t look back.

After their performance last night, they promised a special surprise. Surprise! The Bungee Jumpers were accompanied on stage by three Four Diamonds children.

The Four Diamonds kids got in on some double dutch, and one of them even got to be the human rope in one of the Bungee Jumpers’ most iconic stunts.

On top of their special guests and already exhilarating routine, the Bungee Jumpers went bigger this time around. Last night, they double dutched. Today, they double dutched while sitting down. Then they double dutched while jumping their own ropes. Then, one girl double dutched while jumping her own rope…on a pogo stick.

They may have left out the pyrotechnics that we hoped for, but we were certainly not disappointed. Besides, it’s probably better that way. You know, with fire safety concerns and all.

The Bucks County Bungee Jumpers reign as the greatest act to touch the THON stage – in my opinion, at least.
