* AdoredByTheNetwork: If ''Series/{{Chopped}}'' or ''Series/DinersDriveInsAndDives'' isn't running on Food Network right now, chances are this show is. This was averted in 2014, however, with ''Restaurant: Impossible'' being restricted largely to Wednesday nights.
* [[TheCameo Celebrity Cameo]]: Professional wrestler Wrestling/GailKim appeared in one episode of the show, which is how she and Robert first met. They married in 2012.
* HeyItsThatGuy: Two of the chefs in the first episode previously appeared on ''Series/{{Chopped}}''.
** One of them (the one that won the job) was frequently criticized on ''Chopped'' for making dishes way too small. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, even when he won the job, he caused problems for Robert by backing out at the last minute.]]
** Stacey Poon-McKinney, owner of "The Trails", competed in Season 9 of TheNextFoodNetworkStar.
* RomanceOnTheSet: See Celebrity Cameo above.
