On August 18th, 9pm ET/PT the fourth season of The Great Food Truck Race takes off. Eight three-people teams will start the longest challenge in the series history, as they will have to travel a route with a length of 4181 miles while competing against each other all the time. Each team will be given their own custom-made food truck that they will be using throughout the series. In the end, only one team will get to keep the truck and win $50 000 in cash as well as the fame that comes together with the victory.

This year's route will take the competitors to Portland, Pocatello, Idaho; Rapid City, S.D.; Minneapolis/St. Paul; Chicago, featuring guest stars Mayor Rahm Emanuel and legendary football coach Mike Ditka; and finally to Washington D.C.

The challenges on the road will be from side to side, from cooking to testing the teams' business skills and creativity. Their first challenge will be to sell one signature dish from their menu for at least $20. In the end of each episode, the team who has done the worst will be sent home while others keep on competing.

"Our competitors have to demonstrate top-notch cooking abilities and an entrepreneur's creativity and business skills. It all makes for a food-filled road trip that delivers a life-changing grand prize to the winner." -- Bob Tuschman, Food Network.

The show will premiere on Food Network on August 18th.

The rise and rise of Ellen Page

Ellen Page is without question the woman of the moment in Hollywood right now. With a Best Actress Oscar nomination recently stacked up alongside a list of achievements for her turn in ‘Juno’, including being named the Breakthrough Actress of the Year at the Hollywood Film Festival, she is, to coin a lovingly overused tinseltown term, ‘hot’ right now. Piping hot.

Screw Geoffrey Chaucer. Not for his poetry, quite honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever read any of it, but because apparently he inadvertently created Valentine’s Day. I didn’t know this until recently. I just assumed the holiday was the byproduct of greeting card company greed and lack of anything better to do in the month of February, but evidently it’s been around for quite some time.

Buried deep within the embers of grief, a spark of friendship ignites in relationship drama 'Things We Lost in the Fire'. However, while this thoughtful, emotional film delivers some strong performances and appealing cinematography, don't expect a blaze of drama and excitement.

Despite having fame, wealth, beauty and a hugely successful pop career, the members of Girls Aloud seem to be lacking in one department - a happy and healthy love life.

Fads in mental health diagnoses come and go. Something called Existential Neurosis was popular for a while, but seems to have lost some of its gloss in recent years. For a long time now, any high-energy, active child risked being diagnosed—often misdiagnosed—with Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD).
