"I’m sorry but I don't agree with this.

It was widely reported that 40-year-old Denyer was an outside chance to bring home the Gold, especially since his show Family Feud was just given the axe due to poor ratings. But industry bigwig Gleeson stepped in and kicked off a #Denyer4Gold campaign after Denyer appeared on his ABC series Hard Chat last week.
