Paolo Ballesteros Beat the World Record for Not Blinking

If you watched Eat Bulaga today, you must have caught Paolo Ballesteros taking on the ‘Walang Kukurap Challenge’ or the ‘No Blinking Challenge’.

Although the Guinness World Records do not have a world record set for the longest time without blinking, Record Setter claims that Michael Thomas from Florida has been able to keep his eyes open without blinking for 1 hour and 5.61 seconds. If you thought that was a long time, Paolo Ballesteros just proved that it is completely possible to keep a person’s eyes open for even longer by breaking said record with a whopping 1 hour, 17 minutes and 3 seconds of not blinking.

Eat Bulaga tweeted about the record that Paolo broke here:


Maine Mendoza couldn’t help but tweet about it, either. She was in such awe of the feat!
