The Great Food Truck Race

They are showing a marathon on Food Network today and I have never watched it before.

However, the episode on at 8pm tonight was filmed in my town (well, just outside).

It's in Jonesborough, Tennessee--population 5,000--and like Tyler said, they have probably never seen a food truck parked in the square. Unfortunately, we don't have food trucks around here, save for the occasional construction site maybe.

I am intrigued by how the contestants perceive the area and worried*/interested how the locals will act.

*Seems that every time there is a disaster around here, they always find the most embarrassing person possible.

Anyone already seen the episode?

It was pretty normal except for the fact that in the other cities, they did most of their selling after dark. In this one, they shut down after dark - there was nobody around to sell to.

I'd also like to say this: Misa - Nom nom nom nom nom. Nom nom nom. Nom nom.
