Robert Irvine is a world-class chef, fitness authority, and philanthropist who seeks to inspire people to live better each and every day.
Many know Robert as host of the popular Food Network series, Dinner: Impossible, which ran for seven seasons and over one hundred episodes, and later as host of a thirteen-season run of Restaurant: Impossible. At its peak, over one million viewers a week watched Robert not only renovate restaurants and retrain staff in record time, but counsel owners through personal problems that were destroying their businesses.
Additionally, Robert has hosted or appeared on Food Network shows including Worst Cooks in America, Next Iron Chef, Restaurant Express, Chopped: Impossible and many more.
Robert is a tireless supporter of our nation’s military. He believes that none of his success would be possible without the brave men and women who defend our freedoms. For that reason, Robert founded The Robert Irvine Foundation in 2014 to support veterans and their causes. Grants have been awarded to the USO, Valor Service Dogs, the Gary Sinise Foundation, and the American Veterans Center.
In addition to many awards and accolades, Robert is a proud recipient of the US Department of the Army Outstanding Civilian Service Award in Spring 2016.

"We cannot forget the sacrifices being made to defend our freedoms... those sacrifices deserve to be honored and never forgotten." – Robert Irvine
The Robert Irvine Foundation’s primary focus is on giving-back and supporting our military personnel (active, retired, and veterans) and first responders through morale and welfare programs, in addition to financial support of properly vetted Veterans' Organizations.
Since the foundation's creation, they have fed over 125,000 wounded warriors and their caregivers through their partnership with the Gary Sinise Foundation, supported the building of smart homes for severely handicapped service members, and funded a number of local and regional programs designed to bring joy or lighten the burdens of our nation's heroes.
They strive to create awareness throughout the community of the sacrifices made by our military personnel, first responders, and their families; and, inspire community support for the men and women defending our freedom at home and abroad.
