[opening narration: season 3]
At the top of the world, there's a job only a few would dare. Last season, the dash for the cash was fought on the smooth playing field of Canada's Arctic ice. This season, two old pros join four of America's bravest truckers to tackle the tundra's deadliest ice passage. Just when you thought extreme trucking couldn't get more dangerous, ice road truckers take on Alaska. These are the truckers who make their living on thin ice.

You couldn't get more real than the world of trucks and truckers. Especially in the case of these Ice Road guys, where the danger is real. The unpredictability of the equipment, the ice, and the weather combine with the cutthroat truth of how real business is conducted to provide plenty of drama.
Ordinary trucking might be a little dull for reality TV, but you will find the Ice Road to be a far more interesting show than you expect when you first tune in to watch.
It is hard to judge the overall effect that "Ice Road" might have on the Reality TV universe, because I am not sure how enjoyable it can be to everyone in the audience. I wonder what the breakdown is of the audience demographics actually tuning in?
This is one of the better Reality shows because it doesn't appear to be overly contrived or fake. At least the action is not fake, but you never know about the editing.
