Number 1 Fan (also known as Number One Fan) is the tenth episode of the second season of Drake & Josh.


A girl from Josh's Campfire Kid's troop has an obsessive crush on Drake and his music - but as she gets increasingly fanatic, Drake doesn't know how to handle it.


In the opening comments, Drake and Josh talk about their experiences with kids in the past. Josh tried to teach a Portuguese boy named Paulo long division, but the boy threw a golf club at him. Despite telling Paulo's father, he just shouted at Josh in Portuguese. Drake was told by Audrey to babysit Megan and her friends one time, but he instead took them to ride go-karts, as well as giving them large cups of coffee.

Josh prepares a tray of s'mores and a tall glass of milk, but burns his hand from touching the hot tray, forcing him to dunk his arm in the glass by getting milk all over the s'mores. Drake comes in and asks Josh why he's making s'mores and Josh says he's helping dad with his campfire kids meeting, but Drake is surprised that he's still the chief. He then tastes a s'more, burning his mouth. Walter then yells for Josh from the living room, finding the kids tying him to a chair. All of the girls wrestle Josh, taking all of the s'mores. Josh berates Walter for not helping him, but it's because he's still tied to the chair. After Josh finally unties him, Walter, furious with the kids' trouble making, quits, making Josh the new Campfire Kids' chief. When a random girl learns of this, she unhappily leaves. Another girl from Megan's campfire troop asks where Drake is, since she finds him to be the cutest boy ever. Drake then walks in to tell Josh that he was picked by Star 99 to play a song on Friday night. A boy is grossed-out when he finds a band-aid in his milk, because of Josh. Later, Drake is in his room playing on his guitar, when the girl from before walks in, startling him. She compliments his guitar, and Drake asks her name, which is Wendy (her real name is Melissa, but she hates the name, so people call her Wendy). She mentions the time where they first met at the supermarket, which she wrote in her diary. Her dream is for Drake to play her a song. Impressed with all her knowledge of him, Drake gives her an autograph (on the back of Josh's photo of Frankie Muniz) and a guitar pick.

At the Premiere, the kids think Josh is there to show them a movie, but he's going to teach them about wilderness navigation, much to their anger. He tells them they are stranding on a deserted island, and asks what they would do, and Megan says she'll call mom on her cell phone, even though she shouldn't have it. Megan claims she always has her cell phone, Josh tells her the batteries are dead, and Megan carries a spare. Josh, starting to lose patience, tells Megan her cell phone is broken, and all she has is a compass, and a map of the island. She still eggs Josh on, so he changes his mind and lets the kids see a movie. Wendy notices Drake on a date with a woman, and jealous that he's spending time with someone else, willingly goes to them to get their attention. She tells Drake's date, Larissa, that Drake writes songs, which she was unaware of, and would like to hear some. Wendy also shows Larissa Drake's guitar pick, while being amused that he didn't give her anything. She even comments on the amount of Larissa's food, showing concern that she should watch her figure, harassing her further by mentioning the pimple on her chin. Drake, annoyed enough, tells Wendy to leave, which she does. Larissa complains about Wendy's behavior, but Drake agrees that she has a lot of food.

However, Wendy takes things too far when she advertises Drake's radio station performance at school. He lashes out on her, causing her feelings to get hurt. At the station, he is in need of a guitar pick and when he checks his pockets, he finds a note from Wendy apologizing for what she did and returning the pick he gave her. Realizing his mistake, he reschedules his radio performance and returns home to Wendy and plays a song just for her, which was the song he was supposed to perform on the radio. She is then cheered up and the kids go with Drake to celebrate at Chuck E. Cheddar's. After Drake and the campfire kids leave, Josh gets left behind, still being inside the tent.

During the end credits, Drake plays his guitar while Josh sings Drake's song "Down We Fall".
