A Waffle House restaurant became a temporary residence for a North Carolina State student after losing a fantasy football bet.
“(Our) fantasy football league has a rule that if you come in last place then you have to spend 30 straight hours inside a Waffle House," Mike Fuller told ABC News owned and operated station, WTVD at the Waffle House in Raleigh.
The college junior was in the restaurant from Thursday night until Saturday at 1 a.m. local time, but he came prepared to make the most of his time, bringing pillows, his backpack, books and setting up camp at a corner booth to create his own study spot, Fuller told the Raleigh-Durham station.
WTVD caught up with Fuller at 5 a.m. local time on Friday and at that point he had eaten “two (regular) waffles, two chocolate chip waffles and three cups of coffee.”
Besides getting work done to pass the time upholding the bet, friends of Fuller came in to show support.
"I was thinking, you know, at 3-4 in the morning he might just be here alone so I said I'll pick up the graveyard shift," Fuller’s friend Justin Gonzalez told WTVD. Other students also came to visit Fuller during his stay.

"It was crazy and certainly very funny at times and I'm glad people are getting a laugh out of it," Fuller told ABC News in an email today, as he reflects on his experience.
Waffle House has not responded to ABC News' request for comment.
