Man gets money’s worth with Olive Garden pasta promotion (Video)

WASHINGTON — A North Carolina man is making the most out an Olive Garden promotion that promises bottomless pasta.

Alan Martin purchased Olive Garden’s “Never-Ending Pasta Pass” — a deal with a $100 price tag for seven weeks of pasta. Martin, as pastor and father of two, set to get his money’s worth by aiming to eat at Olive Garden every day, twice a day.

Martin is on track, gorging on 95 meals at Olive Garden over the past six weeks. The deal, which was sold to only 1,000 customers, goes through Nov. 9.

“I would love to be the person that ate the most of the 1,000 people. That would be a good contest to win. Because that means I got the most value out of the card of anyone in the United States,” he told Fox 8 in Greensboro, North Carolina.

The pasta dishes typically cost about $9.99 and Martin estimates he has saved about $1,000 with his eating planning under the “Never-Ending Pasta Pass.”

More impressive than Martin’s appetite is his weight. Martin says he has not put on any pounds while consuming so much Olive Garden.
