The Food Network is considered the go-to network for food-centric reality TV and its inception of 'The Great Food Truck Race' will further cement that idea. Hosted by Tyler Florence, it is the first show of its kind devoted to the trend of mobile restaurants.

'The Great Food Truck Race' featured six contestants who will travel through the U.S. and participate in both cooking and business-oriented challenges.

Implications - Since the release of shows like Survivor and The Simple Life, Reality TV has dominated the entertainment industry. Shows based on every concept from finding romance to home decor appeal to a broad range of audiences looking for shows they can identify with and immerse themselves in. Home decor and cooking shows are among some of the most popular, as these are experiences a large portion of the tv watching community are familiar with.
