30 Suspiciously Similar TV Shows Accused Of Ripping Off Another Series
British chef Gordon Ramsay had a successful show called Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares in the U.K. He visited failing restaurants and, in under a week, helped turn them into more successful establishments. His show did so well that he took it to the U.S. under the name Kitchen Nightmares, but then Food Network came out with a show that felt like an exact copy of Gordon’s show.
Restaurant: Impossible followed British chef, Robert Irvine, who was tasked with restoring failing restaurants within two days and with a budget of $10,000. No, his language wasn’t as colorful as Gordon’s and he didn’t have an explosive temper, but both shows were similar enough for fans to catch on.
