- 1 Season
World's Toughest Trucker is a television series that pits top truck drivers against each other in some of the world's harshest conditions. The show follows truck drivers as they encounter rough and rugged conditions in which they must outdo one another to become the world's toughest trucker and win a cash prize of 150,000 dollars. They venture across most continents taking trips in Australia, Canada, Brazil, and India. World's toughest truck was produced by Dragonfly Productions and GroupM Entertainment and is broadcasted on the discovery channel in the United States and on channel 5 in the United Kingdom. The show is a reality series that aired in January 2012 and features eight episodes. The show was met with above average reviews in the United Kingdom and landed on the top 30 of the week on that channel. Based on the positive reviews that the show received plans for a second season are likely to follow. Unlike other trucker shows, this show features truck drivers from across all corners of the world. The participants are seasoned truck drivers who are screened and considered to be some of the best at their trade. They are expected to complete a delivery over three days that includes all of the major problems they typically experience on the road. These things include unusual cargo, massive rigs, and treacherous roads that can be deadly. Over 60,000 people applied to be on the show and only the very best were selected to become participants. The participants in the show have three days to deliver their cargo, and are racing against each other to hopefully attain the 150,000-dollar prize. The quality of the truck drivers in this show and the large prize at the end provides a frenzy to get to the finish line. Because of the dangerous roads and remote locations, it is probably the most dangerous trucker show and some of the most entertaining television.
