Barbie Babes

Each team was given a digital camera to document life on the road and capture behind-the-scenes shots of day-to-day filming, challenges and competitors. Skye, Hayley and Jasmin of Barbie Babes snapped photos of their truck and each other with rival teams on set.

Invading Los Angeles

For the premiere challenge, the food trucks cruised into the heart of Los Angeles to kick off a weekend-long selling spree right on Hollywood Boulevard. Barbie Babes' Jasmin wandered the set before filming began to get a closer look at the upcoming scene.

Camera-Ready

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.

Mastering the Truck

Though Barbie Babes endured a few minor speed bumps while learning the ins and outs of their truck, the team quickly figured out how to maneuver the vehicle with ease and best work the appliances. In no time they were operating their food truck like industry professionals.

Girl Power

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.

Bumper-to-Bumper Traffic

It wasn't easy for the teams to maneuver their oversized vehicles through crowded streets and narrow parking lots, as Barbie Babes demonstrated in this candid shot of the food trucks waiting to hit the road.

Down-Under Barbecue

When it came to designing their menu, Skye, Jasmin and Hayley knew they wanted to stick to what they did best: authentic Aussie barbecue, like burgers and snags (Australian sausages) made with traditional ingredients.

Early Friends

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.

Flagstaff-Bound

Though Arizona would prove to be their last stop in the race, Barbie Babes was excited just to be there, since the week before they narrowly avoided elimination by barely outselling Under the Crust.

Top-Notch Aussie Flavor

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."

Campground Camaraderie

Despite the rivalries between the teams, Hayley paid a visit to the guys of Seoul Sausage and Coast of Atlanta to bring peace to their picnic table.

Farewell to Barbie Babes

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."
