CMT TAKES BIG RIG MAKEOVERS TO A WHOLE NEW LEVEL WITH NEW SERIES "TRICK MY TRUCKER" PREMIERING IN NOVEMBER

New Makeover Series Hosted by "The Bachelor's" Bob Guiney Puts a Roadblock in the Unhealthy Habits of Truck Drivers

NASHVILLE � October 23, 2007 � Once again, CMT turns the tables on the trucking industry with the new six-episode makeover series, TRICK MY TRUCKER, premiering on Saturday, November 10 at 9:00-9:30 p.m., ET/PT. From the producers of TRICK MY TRUCK, TRICK MY TRUCKER shifts the focus from the trucks to the truckers themselves, giving their lives a physical and emotional overhaul for cash, prizes and a roadmap to healthy living.

Hosted by "The Bachelor's" Bob Guiney and featuring the help of celebrity stylist, Harmonie Krieger, and trainer, Aaron Aguilera, each 30-minute episode of TRICK MY TRUCKER challenges two out of shape drivers to change not only their image but their lifestyle for a reward of thousands of dollars in cash and prizes.

In each episode, the truckers are confronted about their unhealthy habits on the road and encouraged to change their routines by learning nutritional eating habits, even when greasy diners are their only option, as well as exercise routines perfect for truck stops and rest areas. Armed with a confessional camera to track their progress over several weeks, the truckers return at the end of each episode for a physical transformation and a catwalk finale, revealing their new and improved selves in front of family and friends. Guiney and his team serve as judges, determining who has committed the most to their lifestyle makeover and rewarding the winning trucker with fuel money for their big-rig as well as a new lease on life on the road.

Episodes of TRICK MY TRUCKER will feature:

- Saturday, November 10 � Brian Greenlee of Victorville, Calif. and Thomas Reedy of Harker Heights, Texas
