The pair performed on a 1966 episode of The Ed Sullivan Show [2]


Bob Markworth & Mayana's audition in Episode 903 consisted of Bob performing archery feats such as shooting arrows at Mayana so that some of her clothes were ripped off. Howard SternHeidi KlumMel B, and Howie Mandel all voted "Yes," sending the duo to Judgment Week.

Judgment Week

Bob Markworth & Mayana were sorted into the "Variety Acts" category in Judgment Week. The duo's performance in Episode 908 consisted of Bob shooting at two balloons with two arrows at one time and at a playing card. Unfortunately, Bob failed to pierce one of the balloons and failed to split the playing card in half. Bob & Mayana's performance was not strong enough for the judges to send them to the Quarterfinals, eliminating the duo from the competition that same episode.
