Do you love food? Love cooking? And in addition to everything else, do you love to see people competing against each other in a high-stakes battle? And do you love to see it all in action without having to stand up from your comfy chair? If so, The Great Food Truck Race is something for you.

Food Network's The Great Food Truck Race returns for a third season with brand new twist. If during the first two seasons the competition was between current food truck operators, this is no longer the case. This time the battle for the great victory is between eight three-person teams who want to be in the food truck business. And as always, there can be only one winner.

The grand prize of the show is the food truck they've been using during the competition, and a $50 000 cash prize to help them in the start-up of their new food truck business.

The third season of the show takes off on Sunday, August 19th at 10pm ET/PT, and is seven episodes long. Each team is provided a food truck for their race that begins at a Long Beach, Calif. lighthouse and ends at the West Quoddy Lighthouse in Maine. The road will be full of different cuisines created by each team, varying road strategies and city-specific challenges.

The winner of the high-stakes battle will get to keep their food truck and also awarded $50,000 cash prize.

"Their culinary skills, business savvy and entrepreneurial spirit will be road-tested, and viewers will love seeing if the aspiring chefs' dreams hold up when the rubber meets the road," said Bob Tuschman, Food Network's General Manager and Senior Vice President.

The MTV Effect

MTV turned 30 years old last year, and the network doesn't much resemble what it was when it first launched. Once, MTV – Music Television – was a clearinghouse for new music and the latest artists. Today, the only time you see music on MTV is in the wee hours of the morning. Scheduled TV shows sold better for advertising, so MTV has become a network for teen culture more than music. Even still, it's a major powerhouse in the industry, and it's launched careers, buzz, and even the latest stuff we're all totally obsessed with. Whether you're a music lover or you just really love bad reality shows, MTV has a serious effect on what's hot and what's not on and off your TV screen.

When your 15 minutes of fame are up, you're supposed to fade gracefully from the limelight, but try telling that to Lindsay Lohan. While some other stars have been on the outskirts of fame and fortune, they've taken smart roles that helped them claw their way back up to the top and away from being compared to LiLo, which is just as important.
