Has Anyone Seen the new Dinner: Impossible?

I watched the season premiere of Dinner: Impossible last night (here in Canada anyway, it might have been on for awhile in the US) and they have changed it quite a bit.

The host is now Michael Symon, the latest Iron Chef, and the opening doesn't have any of the "spy" theme that the original with Robert Irvine did.

There were two back to back episodes and I have to say that I like him, but it is completely different. He takes a more laid back approach and a "am I really sure I can do this" attitude and just sort of has fun.

I loved Irvine, but found in some of the last episodes he was getting pretty irritating.

Any comments?

Symon's laugh drives me bonkers.
I think I like him more than Irvine, however.

I think I will pass on making chocolate covered bacon with almonds as a gourmet dessert though, no matter HOW good they said it tasted. Makes me glad I can't eat chocolate!

LOL! I was thinking that the bacon might be the next thing I take to a pot luck,
sounded pretty darn tasty to me.
He whipped out some other tasty looking "Boardwalk" foods too. That pizza looked
good too!

I think he is a lot better chef than Irvine would ever dream of becoming. It's a better show now.

It all looked good. Even though he was rushed, he never really panicked and came out with real quality food. I would love one of those shrimp corn dogs or the gazpacho slush with lobster!

As for the bacon, what is it with using it for dessert? In the finale of Top Chef, Richard made a bacon ice cream and got rave reviews from the judges.
