I never saw the Chef Leon season, but from reading lots of comments, he was a first class a**hole to everybody. Kiko only pissed off Captain Cranky. And Hannah when his timing was bad.
FWIW, the Twitterverse is just ripping on lyin' Sandy.
I'm not a huge fan of Captain Lee either. He's ignored all sorts of crap as a way out of making tough decisions, then claims "Well, I had no idea!", but at least he doesn't hover like a drone waiting to pounce for more camera time.
