Restaurant: Impossible 16

Turning around a failing restaurant is a daunting challenge under the best of circumstances. Attempting to do it in just two days with only $10,000 may be impossible.

But Chef Robert Irvine is ready to take on the challenge. He'll use a little MacGyver and a lot of muscle to rescue these desperate places from complete collapse.

Find out as Robert Irvine takes on Restaurant: Impossible.

In the Season 16 premiere, "Cleaning Up in Mississippi": Chef Irvine has his work cut out for him when he arrives in Ridgeland, Mississippi.
