A charity will be $10,000 richer after Criss Angel outlasted Nathan Burton in an endurance competition where both competitors were given a sleep aide and challenged to stay awake as long as possible.
Burton describes the bet, which happened under the supervision of doctor during Criss Angel’s , to Robin Leach of the Las Vegas Sun
“We then did various tasks to make staying awake difficult, such as laying down in completely pitch-black rooms and closing our eyes for long periods of time. Three hours into the challenge, while Criss and I were laying completely motionless, I dozed off for just a few seconds. Dr. Duke declared Criss the winner, and I will cough up the $10,000.
No word on if Burton has already paid up for his droopy eyelids.
