Munich (ots/PRNewswire) - Starting Tuesday, the 12th of November
2019, lasting until today, the 15th of November 2019, Ariane Alter
and Sebastian Meinberg, two hosts, known from their successful
YouTube channel "Das schaffst du nie!" ("You will never make it"),
presented the marathon television talk show lasting 72 hours. It was
broadcast live on ARD-alpha, the only educational TV channel in the
German-speaking world. The previous record of 70 hours and five
minutes had been set by two Syrian journalists in 2014.

Over the course of the show, the hosts Alter and Meinberg
entertained their audiences in and outside the studio with great
dedication getting by with almost no sleep.

Apart from setting a new world record, both protagonists were on a
mission to get smarter every hour. They achieved their goal by
talking to more than 100 guests in the studio about science,
politics, sustainability and pop culture. The YouTube livestream
reached more than 1,8 million views (YouTube Analytics, realtime

During the entire 72 hours, independent observers were present.
Their task was to verify the legitimacy of the record attempt and the
compliance with the Guinness World Record rules. These comprise for
example the number and length of toilet breaks and naps. To comply
with the rules and to ensure the record attempt would be valid, the
hosts had to talk and entertain their audiences for at least 40
minutes every hour.

"It was harder than we thought, but we feel super happy for having
made it," said host Ariane Alter afterwards.

"We made it! The great result is an honour and absolute success
for us. I am so proud that we never shy away from seemingly
impossible challenges, like hosting a TV show for 72 hours," said
host Sebastian Meinberg, proudly.
