Robert Irvine mentioned in the interview that things spiraled out of control when a couple of guests got accidentally hit by paint. Irvine was afraid that something like this could happen and wanted to avoid using oil paint on the chairs at the eatery because he was sure they wouldn’t be dry on time. His fears became reality when the team realized it didn’t have enough rental chairs and had to use those that had been freshly painted. To Irvine’s great dismay, the paint wreaked havoc and the “Restaurant: Impossible” crew had to buy a brand new dress for a customer whose outfit was completely ruined by her chair.
Furthermore, Irvine had appointed someone as an executive chef who decided to quit right in the middle of filming, leaving Irvine to work frantically to keep up with the orders. That experience combined with the paint disaster was incredibly frustrating for Irvine, who had to step up and do some damage control. Truly a story of a stressful ordeal, even for a seasoned professional like Irvine.
