The Herald Sun claimed that bosses of rival TV networks were disgraced at Waleed’s win of the Gold Logie at last year’s event.

They reportedly went on to say that a host of a higher rating program should take home the prestigious trophy.

Meanwhile, viewers of last year’s Logie Awards, would remember Waleed’s candid acceptance speech.
