Couch Potatoes Sit Down For Olympic TV Marathon

New York, NY -- Many people will be glued to the TV during the Olympic games, but some are hoping to set a record doing it.

Twenty-two boob-tube boobs have signed up to try and set a new Guinness World Record for watching the most amount of TV, and they'll be doing it watching the Olympics.

The contestants will start watching TV at the Universal Orlando Resort in Florida when NBC's Olympic coverage begins.

Whomever can hold out the longest will earn the Guinness title and win a trip for two to the 2006 Olympic Winter Games in Toronto.

The current World Record is 50-hours and 5-minutes -- or just over two days of non-stop viewing -- but NBC insiders are betting on Knoxville, Tennessee-resident Kevin Keveaney: He's already set a personal record of 46-hours, 30-minutes and 50-seconds.

Contestants are allowed a five-minute break every hour and a 15-minute break every eight hours. Potty breaks can only take place during the 15-minute rest periods.
