To kick off the weekend, Richard Simmons visited the team of folks participating in the movie-watching marathon (check out Crazy Legs Conti!). Simmons served up some "heart-healthy energy foods" and taught them how to do exercises while seated in their lounge chairs. Since Thursday the eight contestants have been slackin' off and watching flicks in an attempt to break a world record, and take home some cash.
So far, 50 or so movies have been watched, and several competitors have been cut...including New York's very own couch potato. The Daily News reports "Jerry Cavallaro, 20, of Staten Island was bounced from a movie-watching championship in Times Square Sunday morning after he looked away from the screen." For those who hold out until Tuesday, the final movie, Thelma & Louise, will be delivered by Susan Sarandon herself!
