Jamie told Guinness that since he was a kid different objects could stick to his skin. He didn't fully discover this hidden talent until one faithful day when he shaved his head and went to a baseball game.

"I was trying to cool my head down. I dried it off first, grabbed a can of pop, and just started cooling my head down, As I was doing that, they hit a homerun and I went up to grab it and missed, and then I was like 'Where's my drink?' It was stuck to the back of my head."

Jamie shared with the Guinness Book of World Records how cans stick to his bald head.

"I actually have a skin condition that's not named yet where my skin pores literally suck in oxygen, the result is that objects can stick to suction to my skin."
