Restaurant impossible is a reality show on the food network starring Robert Irvine.

Additionally, there is a risk from “Airing your Dirty Laundry” on television.

Applicant Restrictions:
  • Be Open Six Months
  • Open During Dinner Servic
  • Located in New Jersey, New York, or Las Vegas
  • Seat 35+ Customers
  • Not be Part of a Chain/Franchise

Mystery Diners – Casting Guide

Mystery Diner Logo
Contestants: 1 Business
Top Prize $0
Selectivity: 1 Star


This reality show has a unique concept that focuses on business owners finding and usually removing problem employees. Because Mystery Diners is on the Food Network, they have limited the businesses to restaurants so far. I can see the concept expanding to cover other types of service business whether that be caterer, florist, or dry cleaner. It never hurts to reach out to the show producers.

While the type of business is a bit flexible, there are some rather specific guidelines that the restaurant must not be part of a chain/franchise. The show has two major perks in that it helps the owners identify problem employees, but also allows them to recognize all star employees. It also allows them a generous amount of time at the start and end of the show to plug their business. This works as a two to three minute infomercial on the restaurant, and most businesses see a jump in traffic from appearing on air.

Applicant Restrictions:
  • Must Be Independent (Not Franchise/Chain)
  • Located in Miama, New Orleans, Dallas, Los Angeles, Boston, Baltimore or Philadelphia,

If you are interested in appearing on the show, you can apply by sending an email : mysterydiners@tgroupmail.com with “Restaurant/Bar Owner” as the subject

The email should contain:
  • Your Full Name
  • Restaurant/Bar Name
  • Location
  • Reason for Submission
  • Number of Employees
  • Photos of Business and Owner
  • Phone Number
