There was plenty of screaming at Sunday night's Watch Party at Veritas restaurant in College Station when the Food Network announced at the end of the Great American Food Truck Race that Chef Tai's Mobile Gourmet Bistro had won the Great American Food Truck Competition. After six weeks of voting, going head-to-head with trucks from New York and Las Angeles and then being left in suspense when the Leader Board disappeared from the Food Network website two hours before voting ended last week ... Chef Tai won!

The contest included a $10,000 prize for the winner and the chance to appear on Season 3 of the Great Food Truck Race. Tai says he was interviewed by phone and told he was in the 'Top 5" contenders for the prize. Asked what he thought his chance of being selected for the show, he shrugged and said with a smile, "I was quirky. Who knows?"

Tai made a breif speech after the screaming ended thanking everyone who took the time to cast their 10 daily votes during the six-week contest. His fans will be waiting to find out if a tv career is next up for the hometown Aggie favorite.

Congratulations Tai and Youngji!
