This guy is awful, keeps repeating the same stuff over and over and over and over and over and over. after the first few minutes you have seen all the camera shots and know exactly what he thinks.

Willie can't even act at all Not photogenic and definitely not for on air film.

The show we thought would be great but it is so horrible can't stand to watch it. If the repeat isn't enough the horrible people that are caught on film NEVER GET FIRED OR EVEN punished in any way.

This Show is totally ridiculous, who ever casted this show should be castrated for putting in Willie !

MORE Restaurant Impossible!!!!

Get rid of this Awful show!!!
