ADDITIONAL NOTES: a show on hiatus for longer than 12 months - without any news about its future - is assumed to be canceled
DESCRIPTION: (from MTV's web site) For years, we've been pimping out rides at MTV, but now we're taking it to a new level. We've invited the top auto shops in Los Angeles to flaunt their skills in a head-to-head competition. We've invited them to Trick It Out. Car customizers are a special breed, fueled by wild ideas, stoked with ambition and obsessed with perfection. When the one-upping is done, Trick It Out is out to find out which hotshot gearhead's skills are tops in the game. On each episode of Trick It Out, two teams of four automotive artisans will represent their shops. Each team gets 10 days and $15,000 to use their skills to customize a beat-up set of wheels. They can do whatever they want ... as long as the finished product is tricked out to match the chosen theme! That's right, we're adding a new dimension to badass automobile makeovers, with themes like horror, safari, sixties, military and cartoons. Car expert RJ Devera will determine the winner of each Trick It Out episode. And what will that winning team get? They'll be competing for bragging rights, of course. And they'll get to keep their tricked out car. AND they'll get to keep the losing team's ride, too! Trick It Out is hosted by Becky O'Donohue, a hyper-hottie who you first met during the fifth season of American Idol, along with her twin sister Jessie. She's been seen on Fear Factor and in a steamy pictorial in the pages of Maxim, and now she'll be guiding you through the garages of some of the most talented body techs and grease monkeys L.A. has to offer.
