I'm not sure that a YouTube competition is unique in any way. But word-for-word contest rules? That's unfortunate.
Hmm. I guess it isn't that hard to figure out who you're talking about, but I'll leave it as an exercise for anyone who is interested.

However, while it is illegal to steal photography and literal text, it is not illegal to steal a general idea. Which is a good thing, otherwise there would only be one brand of digital camera and underwater housing. You cannot copyright the idea of a Youtube-contest, I'm affraid.
What you can do, is point out that is was your idea. Call it 'The first liveaboard youtube-contest in Mexico' or something. And have your mates be glad that their competitors aren't smart enough to come up with something original - then the competition would be harder!
