So the first thing I did when I found out that Chef Robert Irvine agreed to do a #HeyStar! Twitterview with us was tell my Mom. She was like ‘NO WAY…are you kidding me’ and was so impressed because Restaurant Impossible is her FAVORITE TV SHOW. She even tells me stuff all the time that Chef Irvine said in a show about Restaurants, especially when we’re at Restaurants, “Chef Irvine would not approve this…or that” or “last week there was this….” So needless to say, my family is stoked to spend an hour with Chef Robert Irvine on Thursday July 30 starting at 6pPT/9pET. Hope you will all join us on Twitter for what will be great conversation, motivation and some #FitFuel ideas for our bodies and minds.
“I want to empower people, through food and fitness, to thrive each day. I believe a little bit of fitness and a healthy meal is the foundation for taking on any challenge that may come up in a day. I want to help as many people as possible achieve their goals. Whether it’s a family running a restaurant that needs a few tips to make smarter business decisions; a wounded marine recovering from a roadside IED that can use a few words of encouragement and a good meal; or a single mom trying to stay fit and make healthy choices for herself and her children, I believe that I can help. Not every challenge can be solved in 36 hours with $10,000. Those are the challenges that I look forward to solving the most.” ~ Chef Robert Irvine

MORE ABOUT CHEF ROBERT IRVINE
With more than 25 years in the culinary profession, Chef Robert Irvine has cooked his way through Europe, the Far East, the Caribbean and the Americas, in hotels and on the high seas. Robert brings his experience to Food Network as host of Restaurant: Impossible; he has been previously seen on Dinner: Impossible, Worst Cooks in America and Food Network Star’s Star Salvation, an original, exclusive Web series on FoodNetwork.com. In 2012, he appeared on the special Wedding: Impossible, in which he and his now-wife, Gail Kim, said “I do.”
Now in its sixth season, Restaurant: Impossible continues its successful run as one of the network’s most popular shows, with Robert attempting to save America’s most desperate restaurants from impending failure in just two days with only $10,000. During the course of each extreme mission, Robert assesses all of the restaurant’s facets and then overhauls its weakest spots by updating menus, retraining staff and implementing aesthetic changes with the help of his design team, before hitting the streets to tell the community about the improved restaurant.
A native of England, Robert joined the British Royal Navy at the age of 15, and his skills in the kitchen soon came to the attention of his superiors. As part of his service for the Royal Navy, Robert was selected to work aboard the Royal Yacht Britannia, where the royal family and its entourages regularly dined. During his time training U.S. Navy chefs as part of a guest chef program, Robert worked in the White House kitchens, and his creations were served to high-ranking government officials. During his career, he has also had the opportunity to serve 6,000 servicemen and women on a U.S. aircraft carrier and plan the menu for a celebrity-studded after-party at the Academy Awards. Robert is the author of two cookbooks, Mission: Cook! (Harper Collins, 2007) and Impossible to Easy (Harper Collins, 2010), and he owns and operates two restaurants in South Carolina, Robert Irvine’s eat! and Robert Irvine’s nosh.
Robert was previously on The Next Iron Chef: Super Chefs, where he competed against an all-star-caliber group of chefs, including Anne Burrell, Michael Chiarello, Elizabeth Falkner, Alex Guarnaschelli, Chuck Hughes, Beau MacMillan, Spike Mendelsohn, Marcus Samuelsson and Geoffrey Zakarian, for the title of The Next Iron Chef.
