At the time, George was also confronted with controversy for underpaying his restaurant staff by nearly $ 8 million between 2011 and 2017.

In a statement – avoiding mentioning the Calandaris scandal – Ten-CEO Paul Anderson claimed that the decision to top up the three judges came after months of failed negotiations.

Anderson said: & # 39; Despite months of negotiations, Ten was unable to reach a commercial agreement that was satisfactory to Matt, Gary, and George.

& # 39; We want to thank Gary, George and Matt for their contribution over the past 11 years. & # 39;
