Who made the worst bid (if any)

The following came up in a USBF junior training session.  When reviewing the deal later, their world class partnership coach said "nobody did anything wrong" even though the contract was a bad one. It is not uncommon to hear, "That was a bad bid" until you ask "What would you bid?" So, it is with some reservation that I ask, "Who made the worst bid, if any?"

Imps, vul v not. By partnership agreement, after a two level overcall a new suit by advancer was one round forcing.
