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!
Chef Robert Irvine heads to Key West, Fla. As part of the annual Pirates in Paradise Festival, he has nine hours to feed 150 pirates authentic 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. He'll have seven hours to cook for 200 people, but the details are launched in five hot air balloons.
Robert will have seven hours to create a date-friendly meal for 100 speed daters. And just like the daters who will be set up with several matches, he'll have several ingredients for the meal. And he'll have to play 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 match them into new pairs.

He 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. He has nine hours to make a meal for 150 loyal customers using coffee or tea in every dish.

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.
