In each city they visited, The Great Food Truck Race crew set up makeshift beauty departments to make sure the teams could look their best on television. Barbie Babes found out that operating a food truck isn't the most glamorous job, but that didn't stop Skye from indulging in a little pre-filming pampering.
Though the teams' menus were dissimilar, both Barbie Babes and Nonna's Kitchenette celebrated the foods of their childhood. For the Aussies, that meant offering a selection of Down Under-inspired eats, while for Nonna's it was a chance to serve their grandmothers' traditional Italian recipes.
During the first challenge, the guys of Pop-A-Waffle generously offered to share their street space with Barbie Babes, who suffered a slow start to selling after spending too much time in the grocery store. The partnership proved worthwhile for both teams, since it allowed for their increased visibility to hungry passersby.
While Barbie Babes struggled to competitively price their menu, their food was a big hit with customers in both Los Angeles and Flagstaff. Even Chef Beau MacMillan praised the team for their smart use of nopales. "They actually used the cactus right," Beau said. "It's marinated and it's been griddled and it's super tasty."
While Flagstaff proved to be the end of the road for Barbie Babes, the team drove away in good spirits, thankful for the chance to have competed in the race. "I'm really looking forward to going back to Los Angeles and really getting my catering business off the ground," Hayley said. "I've learned so much here."
