Andrew Zimmern Praises Bourdain, Calls Other Shows Derivative
"I really do think that everyone that came after us has been extremely derivative. I've seen people on, you know, little one-year runs on some obscure cable channels doing like "Totally Crazy Food!!"And I'm just like my gosh, how embarrassing for him! And I think that what's different for us and what's wonderful about Travel Channel is that at the end of the day when the cameras go off, Tony's still Tony. He's that exact guy. I'm exactly that person. We'd be doing the same thing if no cameras were following us."
