What makes this a fresh concept (I think) is that 'boring people' as depicted in fiction generally have no idea that they are boring.

This guy glories in it. As mentioned upthread, there's a literal glint in his eyes after he drains someone---a special effect which may, or may not, be intended to convey a supernatural element.

At this point I think it would be funnier if what you suggest is true: the actually-supernatural vampires don't realize that this guy is just an ordinary mortal who happens to be sadistically pleased with the effect he has on people. But we shall see.
