    My least favorite ice road trucker would have to be Alex..he doesn’t seem to ever get too excited because he doesn’t do anything exciting!!

    Dave Redmon because of his driving performance and attitude toward other truckers.

    Dave. It is risky enough on the ice roads. IMO, the other drivers don’t need his potential addition to the risk and stress. I suppose the show needs drivers like Dave, though, to provide conflict, which he does

    Dave — for his abrasiveness/attitude, especially when the going got tough. Even giving Dave the benefit of the doubt that what IRT showed was a few bad moments exaggerated/highlighted to add conflict and ratings to the show, Dave did not deal well with the problems, both as they arose and as they developed

    One character trait that reigns important to me is TRUST and the “I GOT YOUR BACK” principle. I found all the truck drivers to be team players and exuded that quality. Lisa, I felt was insecure and needed to prove herself, hence too much of Me Me Me complex. Nonetheless, she is skilled and a competent truck driver, I don’t dislike her per say, she needs to just accept the here and now, I AM THIS, MANTRA.

    Dave is my least fav. Although they all have parts of them that I find irritating at some point or another.

    Hugh Rowland (a/k/a The Bolar Bear). He’s a real jerk to just about anyone who fails to perform to his own ridiculously high standards, and he overworks himself to a point that can be really dangerous.

    My favorite is Dave. His unabashed attitude is a show highlight for me.

    my least favourite is Dave because I just think his attitude sucks. I kind of want to smack him almost every single time he opens his mouth.

    I must say Dave as he seems like the resident jerk.

    Dave has a bad attitude, so I guess he’s my least favorite.

    Dave Redmon I really don’t like his driving performance and attitude. I guess I can learn from him that way.

    Dave is just not a nice person. I’m sure most of us know someone like him at work.

    Really love them all for what they bring to the table, but if I had to pick one it would be that hothead Dave. Great show!

    Working for a trucking company, I just love this show., Working with Truckers, attitude plays a big part in success. Dave Redmon is my least favorite.
