Olive Garden Pasta Guy Has Eaten 95 Bowls in Six Weeks


Six weeks ago, after Olive Garden offered 1,000 customers “Never Ending Pasta Passes,” a North Carolina man pledged to eat at the Italian chain every day until the pass expired. Quite the ambitious enterprise. Alan Martin, who documents his experience on his blog All of Garden, had bought the pass in September for $100.

Since then, he’s definitely made the most of it. According to WGHP, Martin has eaten 95 Olive Garden pasta plates over the course of 44 days. He’s said to have ordered $1,510 in food up until this point, well over his $100 purchase.

Martin said that he would love to be the one who ate the most out of the 1,000 individuals who purchased a pass. So far, Martin has eaten at least twice a day at Olive Garden, sometimes three. The pass allows a customer to order any pasta, bread, salad and Coca-Cola beverages they can handle over the seven-week promotion.

Looks like you’re well on your way, sir.
