Entrepreneur Bedros Keuilian appeared on the most recent episode of “The Shawn Ryan Show” and now a clip of him talking about getting fired from Disneyland is going viral on TikTok.
Fired for Derailing Jungle Cruise Boats
Keuilian talked about his early childhood escaping the Soviet Union, immigrating to the United States, and working to become who he is today — a serial entrepreneur and investor, author of the best-selling book “Man Up – How To Cut The BS and Dominate In Business and In Life,” and founder of Fit Body Boot Camp, which has been listed three times in Inc Magazine and named by Entrepreneur Magazine as one of the 100 fastest growing franchise brands in the world.
But more interesting to Disney fans like us is how he got fired from his position at Disneyland Park for dumping dirty dishes in the Jungle Cruise river.
As Keuilian describes in the above TikTok clip, he worked as a busboy at Carnation Cafe. One night, he had the closing shift with an opening shift scheduled for the next morning. He knew his fellow Cast Members on the closing shift weren’t necessarily the best at cleaning up and that he would likely not go home until 3:30 – 4:00 a.m.
After they washed half the dishes, he told the other Cast Members to continue bussing the tables while he took care of it. He then tossed the remaining dirty dishes into the Jungle Cruise river, which runs right behind Main Street, U.S.A. At this point in the story, Keuilian notes, “I’m an asshole.”
The next morning, the Jungle Cruise crew tried to pull out their first pair of boats, but they both derailed because, according to Keuilian, a ladle was on the track. In the full episode, Keuilian continued the story, saying that when he arrived at 6 a.m., divers were coming out of the river with pots, pans, and more as his Carnation Cafe managers looked on. Keuilian says he was thinking, “It’s Disney, they got money!” He didn’t realize the boats were going to derail and said the incident taught him that he was “unemployable.”
