>> the way, is scheduled to host "saturday night live" tomorrow night here in new york city but you imagine a lot of snow would keep people away. no. willie geist is on line, waiting to see justin bieber , with other die hards .
>> i'm right outside your window on 49th street . we're used to seeing people camp out for snl coming in and out of our building here, but this takes it to a new level. these people know there is a foot of snow coming and they are still in line under these heaps of blankets and sleeping bags . you can see a couple of feet. that's about t at least four people asleep right here. some of them, though, have woken up. this is ashley and sabrina. you say you're going to ride out this storm to see the biebs. how come?
>> i'm a big fan of snl and my roommate is a big fan of justin bieber , so we're here, doing this.
>> you do know a foot of snow is coming this afternoon?
>> doesn't bother you?
>> nope. i've done this before. and this is probably the worst i've done this.
>> what do you do for food? how will you eat for the next 24 hours ?
>> we'll take shifts, go get food, come back and forth. we have some stuff packed. i think we'll be okay.
>> have you prepared for the possibility that the snow is going to get so heavy that you may actually have to go home?
>> yeah. we're here already, so might as well just continue.
>> i think a lot of people out here, guys, are hoping that mr. bieber himself may stop by this line. it has become something of a tradition. sometimes the host comes out here. by the way, this is the standby line. there's no guarantee that any of these people will get nsnl has said they will release their standby tickets earlier tonight. they usually do it on saturday morning, so hopefully will get some of these people inside. these are the hardest of the hard core justin bieber fans.
>> tell them about the 30-mile-an-hour wind gusts.
