Korilla Kicked Off Great Food Truck Race For Cheating
What a very strange and heartbreaking episode of the Great Food Truck Race last night. If anybody’s been following it, you know that our hometown favorites Korilla have been consistently on the top. They’ve used some clever strategies along with their delicious Korean tacos to get ahead in the game. We knew that they had made it into the top four, but as it turns out, that’s as far as they got. Last night’s episode was a difficult one for all the trucks because they were not allowed to use meat in the carnivorous town of Memphis, and Korilla really seemed to suffer without their usual massive lines.
And when the elimination was announced, there was a twist nobody saw coming.
Host Tyler Florence revealed that Korilla had cheated by adding over $2000 of their own money into their cash drawer. It wasn’t backed up with the sales receipts and they were asked to leave the competition. The irony is if they hadn’t added that money, they would not have placed last and would still be in the game.
The show ended with the Korilla guys looking very defeated, but they gave no testimonial or explanation. The cheating was not denied and their Tweets last night were rather enigmatic. I’m not really sure what to think, other than there’s not too much reason left to keep watching this show. And now I’m really craving a bulgogi taco.
