You might have been told it's rude to stare, but people who can hold their gaze are winning fans across America thanks to a new craze.
People are lining up to take part in staring contests, all bidding to beat the record of 17 minutes 42 seconds.
The contests have really strict rules - with no laughing, winking, nodding, touching, bobbing or weaving allowed.
Players can blink for a limited time, before moving on to the "dry eye death phase" when their eyes must stay open.
The StareMaster contests have attracted crowds of 200 people, who are encouraged to chant and cheer for their favourites.
The craze is so popular that a film and website about it have sprung up.
It was dreamed up by two friends because they were bored and looking for something new to do.
Now there are rumours that a StareMaster gameshow could be made.
