What we can say with certainty is that Robert Irvine is the host of the Food Network's show Dinner: Impossible
. I've watched this before and found it entertaining. Though Irvine comes across as pretty arrogant.
However, many other facts about Irvine's career have now been called into question. For instance, in the past Irvine has claimed that he was knighted by the Queen, that he owns a castle in Scotland, that he cooked at the White House, and that he created the wedding cake for Prince Charles and Princess Diana.
None of this, it turns out, is true.
A Food Network spokeswoman says, "It's unfortunate if Robert embellished the extent of his culinary experiences. We are investigating the matter and taking the necessary steps to ensure the accuracy of all representations of Robert on Food Network and foodnetwork.com."
I'm sure that'll be the extent of the Food Network's reprimand of him, since his show is too popular to cancel.
