Season 7 Premiere, $24,000 And The Guiness Book Of Records

24 returns as the television event of the season, and Global along with Virgin Radio are ready to launch the occasion by hosting the “24/7 Ultimate Fan Marathon” for the most hard-core 24 fans around.

On Tuesday, January 6 at Toronto’s Yorkdale Mall, the countdown begins as nine lucky contest winners will have a chance to make their mark in the Guinness book by attempting to watch seasons 1- 6 of 24, consecutively. The one who succeeds will walk away with the grand prize of $24,000 in cash.

ET Canada’s Rick Campanelli will be on hand to kick things off as the contestants launch into one of the biggest television events in history.

“24 fans are incredibly passionate about the series,” said Jamie Schouela, VP, Marketing Strategy, Global Television. “We can think of no better way to herald the launch of the new season than with this extraordinary mission they can call their own.”

Beginning Monday, December 22, fans can enter online to participate by logging onto or by tuning into Virgin Radio 999.
