New Guinness World Record For Continuous TV Watching

24 is an American television series starring Kiefer Sutherland as federal agent Jack Bauer, produced for the Fox Network and syndicated worldwide. Each 24 episode season covers 24 hours in the life of Bauer, using the real-time method of narration.

On Monday three southern California men have broken a Guinness world record for continuous TV watching, having stared at a screen in a special Plexiglass theater for 86 hours and six minutes.

Farris Hodo, Kevin Cood and Victor Lopez outlasted 97 other contestants to earn the record as the endurance contest concluded four days after it began three days ago at the Hollywood & Highland central courtyard. Each of the three finalists was awarded a Guinness World Record certificate and 10,000 U.S. dollars in prize money.

They beat the Guinness record which was 86 hours by six minutes.

During the contest, participants sat on couches some contestants described as too comfortable, watching “24” on a screen that is 6 feet tall and 14 feet wide.

On Sunday morning, the last female in the competition was eliminated.

Chris Bess said:

“They can’t fall asleep,they have to keep their eyes on the screen that’s what’s doing it”.
