I like how they cleaned up the work history credentials issue. Big deal, so who hasn't lied on a resume. OK, some pretty big lies, but nothing really harmful. Bottom line he's entertaining, so I'll definitely watch again.

I do really like Michael Symon. I do. But I didn't even realize I'd stopped watching Dinner: Impossible until I discovered they were bringing The Man back. I love Robert! I'm excited about the show again!

I am delighted to learn that Robery Irvine has faced up to his embarrassment for having told some pretty tall tales on his resume.... but, to my mind, that is enough punishment (because, let's face it, who is completely truthful when faced with creating his/her resume and who does not embellish a bit??)..... I think the food network is to be commended for accepting this human flaw and has used sound judgement in returning Robert to his role as star of Dinner Impossible - the only person who is perfect for the job....
