Brooklyn Resident Sets the TV Binge-Watching World Record
The United States may rank 35th in math, but America still knows how to watch a butt-load of TV. 25-year-old A.J. Fragoso of Brooklyn, New York just set a new world record by binge-watching television.
For 94 straight hours (just under four days) Fragoso stared at the screen, he started last Friday and finished on Tuesday. He got through it by watching a lot of "Game of Thrones" and "Battlestar Galactica".
Fragoso says it was awful. You only get a five-minute break once an hour to use the bathroom. Other than that, you have to stare at the TV, and can't look away.
The previous record was 92 hours, and was just set last month by five people in Austria. The last time an American held the record was in 2014, when three guys in Las Vegas binged-watched for 87 hours straight.
