(WTVM) - A man born and raised in Columbus, Ga. has made a name for himself in his new home state of North Carolina.

Alan Martin is known in Burlington as the man who has used Olive Garden's Never Ending Pasta Pass 95 times in six weeks!

He's one of the 1,000 people in the country to buy the pass. The minister and father of two loves a good deal... perhaps too much!

"I would love to be the person that ate the most of the 1,000 people,” Martin said. “You know, that would be a good contest to win."

When asked why, Martin replied "Because that means I got the most value out of the card than anybody did in the United States."

By Martin's count, he's saved well over $1,000.

Believe it or not, he says he hasn't gained any weight. What's even more impressive is that he isn't sick of eating pasta yet.
