As soon as the show ended, viewers were encouraged to go to the "LIVE" website, watch videos submitted by the chefs and cast their votes for the top ten.

"LIVE's" viewers have spoken, and the ten food trucks in "LIVE's Truckin' Amazing Cook-Off" are:

Once all of the food trucks have been showcased, the hosts will announce the four food trucks with the highest ratings.

After an audience vote, the top two chefs will go head-to-head for the $20,000 grand prize, returning to New York to compete in a cook-off in front of the "LIVE" audience and a panel of judges. After a taste test, the judges and the studio audience will evaluate the dishes and determine the winner of "LIVE's Truckin' Amazing Cook-Off."

The winning food truck won't be the only prize winner this summer - viewers at home can get in on the action too! As a reward for rating the recipes online, "LIVE's" viewers also can enter to win weekly prizes of $500 gift cards to Omaha Steaks.
