Left to right: Lisa, Hugh, Tino, Tim.
G.W. Boles is bringing his tough Texan attitude to the Andes and the Amazon, but don’t let his rough exterior fool you. G.W. is soft-spoken, but his quiet confidence may be just what it takes to survive on these deadly roads. Determined not to let his late start be an impediment, G.W. plans to hit the ground driving at full speed.
Lisa, the “queen of the ice roads,” pulled out all the stops last season on India’s deadliest roads, but South America is a whole new ballgame. Will she be able to stay strong while the Andes push her fear to new heights, or will she be forced to give up the driver’s seat?
This Southern hothead conquered the Himalayas last season but had a tough winter taking his first shot at the northern ice roads. Now, the long-haul veteran is out to prove that he’s got what it takes to navigate the most dangerous roads on the planet.
AUGUSTIN (TINO) RODRIGUEZ
When it comes to street smarts, Tino’s got it covered. This driver from Compton, California, may have less experience than his competition, but his fluency in Spanish could give him a serious edge.
Season after season, Hugh “The Polar Bear” Rowland has dominated the ice roads of Canada and Alaska. Now out of his element half a world away, Hugh will have to rely on every second of his veteran experience - and probably learn some new tricks - to make it in South America.
Still sporting his blue mohawk, Rick is back for another season after tackling the Himalayas last year. But he’ll have to put his usual pranks on hold and concentrate on the road ahead if he wants to succeed.
Hailing from the Port of Los Angeles, Tim is ready to show the South American continent what he’s made of – a tall order considering he’s never even driven trucks on a freeway before. Brimming with personality, this loudmouthed driver is out to prove he’s not all bark and no bite.
