The television personality is quite active on his social media, giving glimpses of his personal life and professional career to his fans. While checking on his Facebook, on 26th December 2019, Maugatai uploaded pictures of his wife and children, revealing that he has left them to head to Dutch Harbor, Alaska.

Maugatai is no stranger to controversies. Back in the show’s eleventh season, the television personality made headlines for not obeying Monte Colburn’s order. Instead, he chose to stay at a bar, thus, was later fired from the Wizard in the season.

However, Maugatai returned to the boat in the fourteenth season. Though he and Monte agreed to maintain peace, things got heated when Monte said that Tyler Gateman was stronger than him.

Back in December 2011, the police arrested Maugatai after a bathroom brawl at Grand Aleutian Hotel on Amaknak Island. As per TMZ, a woman claimed that the television star put her husband in a headlock during a fight. When she tried to stop the fight, she said that Maugatai forcefully pushed her away.

When the police arrived, the woman had bruises and swelling on her arm. But, Maugatai, on the other side, claimed that he never touched her. In response, the star said that he was just defending himself right after the man punched him in the face.
