Answers :

YOU NEED A TAP AND DIE SET TO REMOVE IT
They should have never used a vice grip. You always use a socket on any hard to remove bolts because it provides equal force around the entire bolts. Vice grips only grab two sides.\015\012
\015\012You can try a bolt extractor, you can purchase them at Lowes and other places.\015\012
\015\012If it doesn't work, you will need a new oil pan.\015\012
\015\012Stop going to the place(s) that put it on too tight, and tried to take it off with vice grips.
