Why is Chef Robert Irvine hosting Restaurant: Impossible?

freia | Nov 10, 2011 11:18 AM

Took a chance, turned it on (nothing else on LOL), watching my first episode. And I'm wondering...
If Chef Irvine has NEVER opened nor run a restaurant, how on earth can he give advice about how to turn around a failing restaurant into a profitable one? Where is his management/business expertise in this arena? Chef Ramsay has the history of restaurant opening, closing, profitability and so on. I'm sure I'm missing something, but has Chef Irvine EVER opened or run his own restaurant?
