A day after pulling off his latest stunning walk, Nik Wallenda admitted that he has never seen the video of some of his previous death-defying tightrope walks.

"Actually I haven't even rewatched the Niagara Falls or the Grand Canyon walk, to be honest,'' he said on TODAY Thursday. "I leave that up to (my team). They do all the research and make sure that things are right."

On Wednesday, Wallenda, 36, walked along the spinning Orlando Eye, a 400-foot observation wheel in Florida, unofficially setting a Guinness World Record for the greatest distance walked at the top of an observation wheel.

Guinness is still verifying the record, which Wallenda looks to add to other records he has achieved, like highest blind-folded tightrope walk, highest tightrope crossing by bicycle, and the first tightrope walk at the base of Niagara Falls.

As for his next stunt, it may take him to Malaysia, home of the 88-story Petronas Twin Towers.

"It's something that I have looked at many, many times,'' he said on Thursday. "My goal would be to go from the top of the spires if it's a reality."

The seventh-generation member of the famous Flying Wallenda family had some fans holding their breath — or taking other measures — while watching his latest death-defying feat.

Meanwhile, Wallenda was calm enough to snap a selfie while standing atop the wheel following his walk.
