Ice Road Truckers Season 7 (6-9-13)

The return of Lisa Kelly. Also coming back from season 6 Alex,Hugh,Jack Jesse and Duane. Its all happening in Canada. The Dalton Hwy was starting to get old anyways. Wish they would bring back IRT Deadliest Roads. Much what Dave Redmond has said on youtube has been true(speaking of Ice Road Truckers).

Nice to see someone else starting reality/blue collar/small business TV threads.

IRT has been exposed as fairly fake, even before Redmon went rogue. I just wonder where they will be this time because Hugh wears out his welcome everywhere he goes.

Re: Ice Road Truckers Season 7 (6-9-13)

Lisa and her bad teeth back and all if them being together? Might have to come back on board after ditching last season. Hugh and Alex back again? Ugh. So they're working for Hugh's company that we're not supposed to know is his company.

I'm never coming back to this shit. I've had enough of the stock footage of the POV from under the ice while the tire rolls over it.

that's what I figured. I don't know why I started watching originally but it was a guilty pleasure and was good to have on on my second monitor while doing other stuff
but as time went on it just wasn't enjoyable even as a background program

I just don't understand how Rick Yemm has a career. Who would hire him with that track record?

Ditto. I watched for the first couple of seasons I think and just gave up because of that (and the forced "conflict").

Re: Ice Road Truckers Season 7 (6-9-13)

So here we go.

It's set in Manitoba, and the roads look truly nasty. Hugh is the boss of a new company called VP Express, competing with his old company, Polar Industries, which he has sworn to put out of business. Alex Debagorski and Lisa Kelly are working for Polar. Lisa got her snaggleteeth fixed. Either I never noticed or she has developed a major speech impediment. Hugh is off to being a douche, saying Lisa can handle the roads because she's a girl and not cut out for the roads. After seeing her on Deadliest Roads, I can say he's full of shit on that one. Those roads in India and South America were NASTY.

Darrell, the lower 48 veteran from last season who worked on the Dalton, is with Polar. Looks like he's had it rough, with a nasty divorce. Wisely, there is no Rick Yemm.

That's good and all but do they have the POV shot of the tire going over the ice?

Re: Ice Road Truckers Season 7 (6-9-13)

Hugh is the one that can't handle rough roads. He speeds through them to resulting in truck and trailer damage, at least he did the last season I watched

Oh hell yes. And you see it like 15 or 20 times per episode, same as always.

She also looks like she's been on the Hugh Rowland diet since we saw her last. She's packed on some weight.

How can you tell with all the clothing she has to wear? It's 20 below zero.

Re: Ice Road Truckers Season 7 (6-9-13)

Once again, appalling unprofessionalism on the part of Hugh. Art's truck died and the man was left stranded and Hugh said it was all his fault and to leave him. he then did nothing but badmouth the guy who was guilty of nothing more than a truck breakdown and driving slowly because he was unfamiliar with the roads.

Lisa said she broke her wrist motobiking and had to improvise a wrist splint using duct tape, since it hurt to shift gears. She made the funniest facial expressions of pain.

Third year in a row that they are using one driver as a scapegoat and blaming him for all the problems.

Dave Redmon spills the beans again. Lots of NSFW language.

Re: Ice Road Truckers Season 7 (6-9-13)

Well the season is over. Only 12 episodes instead of the usual 16. The show is losing steam I think. Nothing really of note happened except for Alex jackknifing his rig badly and totaling it. Seen Darrel get a bonus check and the farewell party after the roads closed was a nice touch, though.

Definitely not a job I would ever want to do.

Re: Ice Road Truckers Season 7 (6-9-13)

I was going too say the same thing. Hardly a mention of the show on History.com and they don't seem to run re-runs that much on the History Channel.

I would be very surprised if there was another season.

Agree, but I was surprised there was a second season, so what do I know.

I don't know what but I immediately read this as Ice Cream Truckers and got kind of excited.
