Former 'Bachelor' Bob Guiney to host new 'Trick My Trucker' CMT show
By Christopher Rocchio, 10/23/2007
CMT has announced Trick My Trucker, a new spin-off of the network's Trick My Truck reality series that will be hosted by former The Bachelor fourth-season star Bob Guiney, will premiere on Saturday, November 10 at 9PM ET/PT.
Each half-hour installment of the six-episode series will follow Guiney, stylist Harmonie Krieger and trainer Aaron Aguilera as they confront two truckers about making both physical and emotional changes to their lives.
The truckers will have their progress tracked over the course of several weeks, and at the end of each episode, they'll return home to reveal their makeovers to family and friends. The truckers' transformations will be judged by Guiney, Krieger and Aguilera, who will determine which trucker they feel is committed to the lifestyle change the most and award the winner with a cash prize.
Guiney appeared on the original season of ABC's The Bachelorette before Trista Rehn decided he wasn't rose-worthy. He later returned as the star of The Bachelor 4 in Fall 2003 and narrowed his field of 25 suitors down to Estella Gardinier, a California mortgage broker, but the two broke-up shortly after the show aired.
In July 2004, Guiney marriedAll My Children actress Rebecca Budig, who also hosted ABC Family's reruns of Guiney's The Bachelor edition.
Trick My Trucker is produced by Varuna Entertainment, Inc., with Jason Morgan and Rob Zazzali serving as executive producers. Bob Kusbit and Melanie Moreau serve as executive producers for CMT.
