Robert boards the Navy's newest destroyer, the USS Wayne E. Meyer, to receive a mission unlike any other. For the first time on Dinner: Impossible, Robert will receive orders to complete two missions in just one day. The brand new destroyer is celebrating its commission week, and the pressure is on Robert to deliver two missions with flying colors.
On this mission, Chef Robert Irvine is faced with a shipping terminal full of food and an empty parking lot in which to cook it. Robert lands at the Packer Avenue Marine terminal, one of the busiest importing ports in the country. Spread out over 100 acres are thousands of tractor-trailer size containers, each one packed with goods imported from all over the world. From these containers Robert must gather his ingredients and prepare a hearty lunch for 150 hungry longshoremen in just seven hours.
On his next mission, Robert is off to college on a mission to transform student dorm food into gourmet fare. Robert must prepare a meal for 100 University of North Carolina students in just six hours, using only the food he can find in student housing. No grocery stores, no raiding the cafeteria and definitely no cheating!
For this episode of Dinner: Impossible, Robert races to the IRONMAN Arizona to compete in his own culinary version of an IRONMAN competition. Just as the IRONMAN has three grueling components in one race, Robert will have three tough challenges in one mission!
For this mission Chef Robert Irvine heads to colorful Key West, Fla., to take on a boatload of pirates. At part of the annual Pirates in Paradise Festival, Robert has nine hours to feed 150 pirates, and he must do so in true pirate fashion. Like any cook on the high seas, Robert has to concoct authentic pirate fare including bone soup, hardtack, sea turtle, pickled preserves and dishes to ward off scurvy.
Robert lands in Gallop, N.M., for the annual Red Rock Balloon rally. Just like the hot air balloons, Robert's mission is literally up in the air. Robert will have seven hours to cook for 200 people, but the details of this mission are launched in five hot air balloons.
On his next mission, Robert will be challenged to the culinary version of speed dating. He will have just seven hours to create a date friendly meal for 100 speed daters. The catch? Just like the speed daters who will be set up with several matches in order to find the perfect mate, Robert will be set up with several ingredients in order to make the perfect meal. Robert will also have the added challenge of playing matchmaker for his kitchen helper!
TV's Divorce Court is celebrating their 2,000th episode and they're bringing in Chef Robert to divorce some tired food marriages and rematch them into exciting new pairs. Judge Lynn Toler has dissolved the partnership of ten classic food combinations and from those 20 newly single ingredients, Robert must reconfigure them to make ten new matches. Robert has seven hours to impress 200 Fox executives, but first his menu must pass muster with Judge Lynn.
Robert is heading to Disney World to play the role of Prince Charming for this episode of Dinner: Impossible. It's Celebrate Family Volunteers Day at Disney World and Robert's mission is to feed 400 volunteers from across the U.S. He'll have nine hours to prepare a meal that will make the volunteers feel like royalty, and who better to give Robert ingredients fit for royalty than Disney Princesses?

Peet's Coffee and Tea Roasting Facility in Alameda, Calif., is brewing up a scorching mission for Chef Robert Irvine. Robert has nine hours to make a meal for 150 loyal customers, using coffee or tea in every dish. To top it off, Robert must attempt to cook each item using one of the methods to make coffee or tea, like roasting, brewing and steaming. Adding to the pressure is an additional mini-mission: Robert must serve three dishes for 50 employees for their scheduled coffee break.
Chef Robert Irvine lands at Blackberry Farm, an exclusive resort located in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains. His mission: prepare a gourmet meal that was sold at auction for $15,000 to benefit Friends of Great Smoky National Park. The catch: he must create this fine dining experience for 45 guests camping-style; no kitchen, no stoves, no ovens, no electricity ... and in the pouring rain!
It's game on for Robert in Clearwater, Fla., home of the Philadelphia Phillies spring training camp. As Robert approaches the mound he is greeted by 1980 World Series Champion and current Phillies coaching staff member, Dickie Noles. Dickie explains that this is the only time of year that the minor league and major league players practice side by side. In honor of that, Robert has seven hours to make a meal for 200 ballplayers using major league and minor league ingredients.
