ESPN Zone names the winner in the annual Ultimate Couch Potato Competition. Local real estate business owner Jeff Miller has won for a third straight time. In addition to the couch potato trophy, Miller also gets a new big-screen TV and recliner.

Miller and his three competitors took their seats Friday. The goal was to see who could watch the most continuous hours of televised sports.

Miller claimed the title at 4:21 a.m. Monday when the last remaining competitor fell asleep.

But Miller's not done. He planned to keep going until 10 a.m. to beat the world record and log three full days of nonstop sports watching.

Competitors could not fall asleep and could can only use the restroom every eight hours.
