The wedding between Gail Kim and Robert Irvine aired August 18th on the Food Network Channel.
The first half of the episode showed TNA Knockout Gail Kim and Chef Robert Irvine talking about how they met on the WWE edition of Resturant Impossible. If you don’t remember WWE invaded Resurant Impossible one year bringing in Santino Marella, The Miz and Gail Kim to help cook for an important WWE event.
In the commentary parts Gail said Robert was going to do all the planning so that she can relax before the wedding, and he is used to all the stress.
Throughout the episode, it showed Robert going through a series of preperations for the wedding. Gail felt since she didn’t have to help plan the wedding, she could at least make a wedding party.
During the wedding party, Gail invited tons of their close friends and family to a suprise party for Robert. Once it was time for her big reveal of the night, she told Robert to turn around – only to reveal his sister who he hasn’t seen in over 10 years. Robert started to cry right away out of shear happiness, Gail on the other hand was pleased that she proved him wrong and was able to suprise him.
At one point Gail Kim was showed at the Impact Zone talking to Christy Hemme about how calm she is heading into her wedding day.
WEDDING DAY!! Gail was shown getting pictures taken in her wedding dresses, when Roberts’ daughters walk in. Gail hands them both a gift – that reveals matching 3 heart necklaces that she says represents them (that they are 2 hearts and she is hooked in the middle). The girls put on the necklaces and it is time for the wedding of the century….literally it seemed like it.
Throughout the wedding week we saw mini clips of TNA Knockout Tara and Christy Hemme – WWE Divas Natalya, Beth Phoenix (not seen on camera but was there) and Alicia Fox. I personally wish they would have show Gail interacting with her wrestling friends more while Robert was planning the wedding.
A horse and carriage…. yes everyone there was one of those. Robert said he wanted to make the wedding perfect, so he ordered a horse and carriage to take Gail to the wedding site. Once Gail got out she walked with her mother to the groom.
After exchanging their vows, Roberts daughters got up and sang a little song that once again brought Robert to tears.
Onto the wedding reception, which once again was out of the world – huge room filled with their closest friends and family – dangling lights etc. The food on the menu was everything from sushi, filled chips, cupcakes …. you name it, it was probably there. The show ended with everyone dancing the night away.
