[ # ] David Gest is no Simon Cowell
April 8th, 2007 under David Gest, Reality International, Simon Cowell

So ever since David Gest did I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, he has been huge over in The UK for some reason. Well ITV thought they would cash in on his popularity and make him a Judge on The UK version of Grease You're The One That We Want and let's just say it is not going so well. Just because he was married to Liza Minnelli does not make him a stage casting-know-it-all and his co-Judge David Ian agrees. In fact it is so bad for David Ian he walked off during a taping and almost didn't return according to Digital Spy.  "At times I find David extremely irritating. Once during filming I just got up and walked out. I'd had enough. If I didn't have such an important role in the whole thing I wouldn't have returned. I've been exasperated with all the judges for not concentrating as much as they should. I audition people every day. I'm struggling to work out why David and Sinitta are there. He is one of the most 'different' people I've ever met. He's nice enough, but has some very strange, mad moments." I love that "different people I've ever met," what a nice way of strangest and more irritating people I've ever met. So PC, but it works.

Also according to Digital Spy, David Ian is not the only ones having problems with Gest, seems the producers have told him to tone down his act. Seems Gest is trying to be like Simon Cowell, and he is no Simon Cowell. Here are some of the things he has said to the contestants that made the producers sit down and have a talk with him.  "I've got bowel movements more exciting than your performance." and "I've a cousin who could dance better and she only has one leg!" (Who knew he was related to Heather Mills?) While I did get a chuckle at those criticisms, they are more hurtful than helpful. Hopefully his 15 minutes will be up soon because I don't want to see him on Dancing with the Stars next season.
