The 100-Hour Shower Contest Turns People into Prunes

I love taking showers, but I don't love them enough to enter into a 100-hour shower contest. Contestants in Berlin, Germany competed to see who could last 100 hours in a shower. The results were pruney.

Contestants were only allowed to sleep once every six hours and could only leave the shower for bathroom breaks. The 100-hour shower sounds like torture to me. The winning contestant walked away with $5,000 and a lifetime aversion to bathing. Stats for Epic Showering Competitions Trending: Older & Average
