The Great Food Truck Race - Winner Crowned Tonight

Tonight is the Season 4 finale of The Great Food Truck Race at 9pm ET/PT on the Food Network.  The remaining three teams are Philly's Finest Sambonis, Aloha Plate, and Tikka Tikka Taco.  The first part of the episode will be set in Annapolis, MD, and one of the final three teams will be eliminated before heading to Washington, DC for the final challenge.

If you read the spoilers from the beginning of the season, all of the eliminations were correct, and it has the final two teams that will be competing in Washington, DC.

The winner of this season will win $50,000 and their own food truck, and I will update this post with the winner after the episode airs.  Who are you rooting for in the finale?

As expected, Philly's Finest Sambonis was eliminated during the episode leaving Aloha Plate at Tikka Tikka Taco as the final two trucks.

In the final challenge, Aloha Plate, which seems to find Hawaiians everywhere, ended up with $14,854 and earned more money than Tikka Tikka Taco ($11,744).  Therefore, Aloha Plate is the Season 4 winner of The Great Food Truck Race and wins $50,000 and their own food truck.


  1. Hawaiians are apparently everywhere and can organize quickly with only the promise of food. Do not make them mad whatever you do, you will be overrun.

  2. While I liked the Aloha truck and I think they probably deserved to win, all season long I had this icky feeling about how they went about winning. They did, of course, NOTHING that was against the rules, but it almost seemed like an unfair advantage that they were able to rev up a lot of support based on nothing more than where they from.

    One of the reasons the FN changed the rules of the show to only allowing teams with zero previous food truck experience is because we saw how much of an advantage can be gained by a team that has previous contacts in a city. They sought to eliminate that to provide a fair playing field and it seems like the Aloha truck kinda got around that by rallying up support beforehand. Not illegal, not against the rules, but it smells a little off to me.
