Man Named First Ever KFC Super Fan After Visiting Branches In More Than 40 Countries

A man has been given a place in the KFC Super Fan Hall of Fame after chowing down in KFC restaurants in almost 50 different cities in more than 40 different countries.

Kamlesh Mistry says he had his first taste of KFC aged 12 while in Toronto, Canada, with his great-grandma, and that kick-started a life-long love of the Original Recipe fried chicken.

The 34-year-old travels several times a year and reckons he's spent about £7,000 ($8,800) on KFC - even popping into a KFC while on his honeymoon in Hawaii.

After spotting a competition to find KFC's biggest fan - Kamlesh decided to give it a go.

Kamlesh, from Watford, London, said: "KFC, alongside my wife and son [Millan, three] is my world.

"Whenever big, happy occasions happen in my life, KFC is never far away."

Kamlesh says he can't even remember all the cities he's eaten KFC in, but has counted 'around 50' in more than 40 countries.

He explained: "When I left university all my money went on travelling and I tried to get to new places.

"Whenever I used to see a KFC in any other country I'd visit I'd always take a picture outside and try whatever they had.

"The most unusual place I've had KFC was in Reykjavik in Iceland. One of my friends ended up working there.

"We went to visit him and did all the sights. We went for a drink in the centre and came across a KFC, which I didn't even know existed in Iceland.

"The other one was when my wife and I went on our honeymoon to Las Vegas, San Francisco and Hawaii. When we were in Hawaii we saw a KFC and they had job applications, so I grabbed one and took a photo to joke with my family that I was having a career change.

"There's quite a few unusual menu items I've seen in other countries. I like spicy food coming from an Indian background and any other countries outside the UK have a lot of spicy variants, like different burgers and wings."

His love of KFC is so well-known among his friends and family, they've started to bring the Colonel into other parts of his life.

Kamlesh said: "For my 25th birthday, my mum got a cake made that resembled a bucket of KFC.

"On my stag party in Valencia, my brothers Rajesh and Manesh got me a colonel outfit and they had t-shirts made up where instead of the colonel's face, it was mine.

"If I had to pick one food group to eat for the rest of my life, they would have a pretty good guess at what that would be."

As well as earning himself a place in the hall of fame, Kamlesh also won a year's supply of KFC and a special ceramic KFC bucket with his face on. Fancy.

Announcing its winner, KFC said: "Kamlesh has shown unprecedented commitment to all things KFC; a worthy winner indeed!"
