You may have heard that Olive Garden sold 1,000 passes allowing customers to eat unlimited pasta, soup or salad, breadsticks, and soda for $100 over the course of seven weeks, but we assumed most of those people were either dead or had transformed into 40-foot Linguine Alfredo monsters terrorizing strip malls nationwide.


But Alan Martin, a preacher from Burlington, North Carolina, not only bought an Unlimited Pasta Pass, he hopes to set the record for most use of the pass, which is sort of like making a down payment on a Weight Watchers plan, plus interest.

Alan Martin bought the pass for $100 and says he has received $1,510 worth of food so far.

“I would love to be the person that ate the most of the 1,000 people. That would be a good contest to win,” said Martin. “Because that means I got the most value out of the card of anyone in the United States.”

Despite needing scientific notation to track the number of carbohydrates Martin has consumed, he claims he has not gained any weight during his six-week journey into the Garden of Gluten, a voyage that at this point can only be described as Homer-esque.
