Steve 'Commando' Willis is owed money after the downfall of educational company Sage Institute.
The former Biggest Loser trainer, 40, was the face of Sage, which runs courses in massage, fitness, child care and aged care, before it went into administration.
"Yes, he is owed money for his appearance fees like everybody else,” administrator George Georges, of Ferrier Hodgson, said of Willis, who is just one of hundreds of victims, he told the Herald Sun.
Georges is reportedly frustrated by reports that Willis, whose partner is Michelle Bridges, is to blame for the collapse.
Willis said he was a "huge supporter" of Sage.
“Over the years, I’ve enjoyed meeting and mentoring countless students that will leave Sage as well qualified and capable trainers,” he said.
“I have no ownership or financial interest in Sage and no involvement in the running of their business, so I can’t speak to the reasons for their financial problems.”
