Yikes! Last fall, Masaharu Morimoto slipped and fell as he got out of a hot tub and landed on his right wrist. “He’s a big guy, so the impact was pretty great,” a doctor who outfitted the Iron Chef with a titanium plate tells People (actually, Morimoto isn’t as big as he once was — he lost 40 pounds last year). Despite concerns about his career, the magazine says that Morimoto is now able to chop and slice fish again, though with some swelling.
