WARNER ROBINS, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) -- The Tonight Show's Jimmy Fallon has been dying to get his hands a on truck, and he's finally settled on a Ford F-150.

Fallon called on the top sales consultants in the country to show how badly they want to make this sale. One of those reps is Elvis Randolph from Warner Robins' Five Star Ford. He's in New York, right now, for a unique competition.

Randolph along with nine other reps from across the U.S. will have to keep one hand on a Ford F-150, while standing on the U.S.S. Intrepid. There's no sitting, sleeping or squatting. They only get a five minute break every hour, and once every 6 hours, they can replace that break with a 15 minute one. The last man standing wins.

General manager of Five Star Ford, Josh Thompson, said Randolph deserves the chance to compete, and Thompson thinks the sales consultant has a shot at winning.

"It's pretty neat, pretty neat. It gives Elvis some recognition he deserves. He's one of probably only 20 level four certified sales professionals in the entire state... Elvis is an athlete, he's energetic, he's excited, so I think he's got a shot," said Thompson.

Fallon is expected to introduce us to the Randolph and all of the competitors Monday night at 11:35 pm on the Tonight Show. It airs on 41NBC right after the news at 11.
