A Trio of Men Set Guinness World Record by Watching Every Episode of Fox's '24' LA Times
Three men set a Guinness World Record Monday for the longest continuous TV-watching period as part of a marathon event put on by Fox for the show “24,” the Los Angeles Times reports.
Kevin Coon, Farris Hodo and Victor Lopez won $10,000 each for for watching every season of the series, an ordeal that lasted 86 hours, six minutes and 41 seconds, the report says.
They were the remaining three of a group of 100 who had signed up for the marathon on the event’s Facebook page. The group began watching Thursday night in a makeshift room created in the middle of the Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood, the report says, adding that by Friday afternoon, 49 had dropped out of the contest, all of them receiving copies of the complete series DVD (which will be released Dec. 14).
