24 fans break Guinness World Record

24 Marathon

Congratulations to 24 fans Kevin Coon, Victor Lopez, and Farris Hodo for breaking the Guinness World Record for longest television. All three contestants surpassed the previous record of 86 hours of consecutive television watching held by Efraïm van Oeveren of the Netherlands.

These hardcore fans managed to watch a whopping five seasons of 24 back-to-back and perhaps could have lasted longer, but unfortunately the event had to come to a close. All three remaining participants were awarded the $10,000 grand prize and the Complete 24 Series DVD box set.

As Kiefer Sutherland said, if anyone could beat the record, it’s 24 fans. And they proved it today. Great job guys – Jack Bauer would be proud!

Have you ever tried this? I mean with just one season. The show becomes tedious at times instead of fun, especially when you know what will happen.

Though watching that first day again for that FX 24 hour marathon was interesting and you can feel Jack’s delirious state.

Anyone ever watch a complete season for the first time all in one sitting?
