Looks to me like an accident in the making

Air Wagner Jerry and Russ Battle the weather and a missed approach in Cessna 414 N8134Q on Feb 15 20

He appears to believe that you can have "personal minimums" which are lower than the published ones, especially in a twin.

It worries me that so many new pilots are watching his videos and learning from him.

Unless there are two Jerry Wagners in Auburn, CA (which is possible, I suppose), these appear to be about the same guy:

I watched and was thinking it was mainly ok. Then I got to the two approaches.

He flew both approaches at Cat C speeds. There is no Cat C authorised at that airport.
He incorrectly briefed the Cat A circling minima. The aircraft is Cat B and cannot use a lower minima.
He bust the Cat A circling minima anyway on the basis of 'proceeding to secondary minimums'.
He bust the LPV Cat A/B "secondary" minimums anyway by 50' before deciding to go missed. "I got the airport" does not authorise descent below straight-in minimums.
The second approach was too high and too fast the whole way. Predictably enough he popped out way steep and made a dirty dive for the 3500' wet runway before floating halfway along as he bled off the 25kts (!) excess speed over the threshold.

Wow, thanks for sharing. This seems something to use as a bad example for briefing.
