JUNEAU- The former bar manager for the Alaskan Hotel and Bar in Juneau says he got fired for not appearing on a segment of the reality show "Hotel Impossible."


Lane Taylor says he began fearing for his job before the Travel Channel show began filming. He told the hotel's owner producers made him feel like they would urge his bosses to fire him if he didn't show up for parts of filming.


The new general manager of the hotel and bar, Joshua Adams, declined to respond to Taylor's claim until after the show airs.


Adams says no employees were forced to appear and many didn't.


Taylor was fired after he failed to show up for drinks with a consultant to discuss ideas for improving the bar.
