Korilla BBQ was disqualified from the second season of The Great Food Truck Race for adding money to their sales earning out of their own pockets.
According to the Food Network, every dollar earned must correspond with a receipt of sale. Korilla BBQ’s cash total was $2,700 more than their receipt total. Korilla BBQ says they would never cheat, but are legally unable to divulge details because of a non-disclosure contract.
The show pits food truck against food truck as they travel from city to city competing for pedestrian diners’ dollars. The show has received criticism for presenting results that don’t quite add up. The suspicion is that editing may be over-utilized to squeeze more drama out of the storyline than there really is.
Host Tyler Florence returns August 19, 2012 for the third season premiere of The Great Food Truck Race on the Food Network.
