Food Network's Robert Irvine fired

Robert Irvine fired for inflating his resume - Slashfood

I have mixed feelings about this. I really enjoyed the show, and Robert, but the dishonesty in this day and age is hard to understand. Did he really think no one would find out?

It's a shame. He and the show seemed to be a good match. He's talented enough that I wonder why he felt it necessary to fabricate things. It'll interesting to see what he does next.

Gee, that's so sad!

I liked him. He's made guess appearences on several cooking shows, also. Too bad.

He'll be missed. Hopefully, he'll go to PBS like Chef Ming Tsai did. He also had his own cooking show on the Food Network - East Meets West.

He also appeared on Iron Chef America.

He paired with Bobby Flay to compete against Cat Cora and Paula Deen.

it wasn't bobby flay, it was Tyler from Tyler's Ultimate. (they do look alike though)

I tend to doubt PBS would have wanted him in the first place. He's def. not their style. But now, I imagine he's toast.

Home Shopping Network, maybe.

You're right, it WAS Tyler Florence.

WHO looks alike? Certainly not Booby Flea and Tyler Florence!

He lied and got fired. Could've happened to any of us. Heck, it would've happened to most of us! I didn't foresee him getting canned though. I thought he and Food Network would have been all the better for the scandal. Perhaps it wasn't scandalous enough.
