In an achievement that makes those dumb-ass elite reviews on Yelp look like Foursquare reviews, Stephen Kelly of Liverpool, UK has the dubious achievement of writing 1,934 reviews since February 2015. That’s about 2 or 3 a day.
My first thought is that his inbox must be hella jammed with TripAdvisor e-mails. I looked up hotels in Buenos Aires a few weeks ago and I still get two e-mails day with subjects along the lines of “You still thinking about Buenos Aires?” They might set up an e-mail server just for him.
The Independent profiled the gentleman and here are the takeaways:
- TripAdvisor named him “UK Review Contributor of the Year”. I would hope so!
- He works as a hospital porter (or orderly)
- He’s gained 577 helpful votes.
- He travels once a month.
- Most of his reviews are positive.
- He’s taken 15,426 photos.
I don’t think I can come up with 1,900 places I’ve visited. I would have to start reviewing individual toilets in airports around the world. “The 2nd to left stall in Terminal 3 by the Cinnabon had plenty of toilet paper and was sanitary. *****”
By comparison, I have 22 reviews with 16 helpful votes. Level 8 Hotel reviews. Y’all jealous?
