Each attempt is evaluated by Guinness World Records officials, who have the final say over whether a record is broken.

In addition to host Dan Cortese, Guinness World Records Gone Wild features Stuart Claxton, the show's primary Guinness World Records adjudicator. Liz Smith, also of Guinness World Records, and actor/musician Zach Selwyn (Greek, Battleship) provide commentary on the action.

Guinness World Records Gone Wild is executive-produced by High Noon Entertainment's Pamela Healey, Burt Kearns and Jim Berger, along with Andrew Golder. For Guinness World Records, Rob Molloy is executive producer. The one-hour series is produced for truTV by High Noon Entertainment (Tough Love, Cake Boss, Hurricane Hunters).
