This season of The Great Food Truck Race is going to be a little different as we get industry professionsals going up against new rookies in these battles. Tyler FLorence is the host as nine teams compete in challenges to beat the other trucks and stay in the game. This season will be in Los Angeles, and they will have the opportunity to cook for guest judges Chef Jet Tila, Chef Joe Sasto and Señoreata’s Evanice Holz. It will all come to a close with the finale winner being awarded a $50,000 prize and winner of the season.
We have heard that it is going to be an eight-episode season, and that would make sense based on last season and the amount of contestants. Make sure to tune into The Great Food Truck Race Season 16 on Food Network on June 18th.
