CMT on Tuesday officially announced new makeover series "Trick My Trucker," a spinoff of the network's "Trick My Truck" that will be hosted by Bob Guiney, previously of ABC's "The Bachelor."

The six-episode series debuts at 9 p.m. Nov. 10. Each half-hour episode will feature two out-of-shape truck drivers who are confronted about their unhealthy habits on the road. With the help of celebrity stylist Harmonie Krieger and trainer Aaron Aguilera, they'll learn nutritional eating habits and exercise routines they can do at truck stops and rest areas.

Their progress will be tracked over several weeks, after which they will reveal their "improved selves" to family and friends. Guiney and his team will determine which driver has most committed to their lifestyle makeover and reward the winner with fuel money for their rigs.
 
"Trucker" is produced by Varuna Entertainment, with Jason Morgan and Rob Zazzali executive producing. CMT's Bob Kusbit and Melanie Moreau also exec produce.

Guiney was both a contestant and star on ABC's "Bachelorette"/"Bachelor" reality franchise.
