Deborah Neves, a competitor to the current version of “Big Brother” (TVI) has not been spared criticism of Ljubomir Stanisic, having dubbed him “Marado”. Before becoming a psychosocial technician and supervisor, the participant in the reality show at the Queluz de Baixo station worked with the chef, in the lead up to the declaration of insolvency.
“I worked with him when there were still 100 maniras in Cascais. He’s crazy, and the guy’s crazy,” he began by telling his fellow Malvera housemates. “100 maniras closed in Cascais, technical sheet left handed and we all took to the street. Then 100 maniras opened in less than six months in Lisbon,” he said. Deborah Neves stated, “At the time, he also did some crazy scenes in his life, and he probably does as well nowadays. But he’s a great chef,” not wanting to go into detail about the “crazy scenes” she was referring to.
The Foundation 100 Maneiras, owned by Ljubomir Stanisic in Cascais, closed its doors in 2008, after the Yugoslav chef incurred debts of more than half a million euros due to the investments he made in the foundation. He recalls in 2020: “I took a while to fully repay the debt to the suppliers. (…) I paid every penny, I didn’t want to owe anything to anyone.”
