I mean, I get if he turned them down for a blink-and-you'll-miss-it part, especially if he's relocated to Florida as the money is not that good. Still, it would probably be good for his "brand" (whatever that is) to appear in it as he'd be able to get Instagram pictures with Lipsa et al. So.... yeah. Might be that he just wasn't asked.
Or maybe the show just didn't ask him back period? And just asked Chandler or something? To me, it seems like very strange timing, but it could be a coincidence.
