Posted By on July 19, 2007

MTV has announced that the upcoming season of Pimp My Ride will be the last for the network.

The final eight episodes of Pimp My Ride will air this Sunday (July 22) at 10:30 pm on MTV.

The hit show will be replaced with a new auto-makeover themed competition titled Trick It Out.

Trick It Out will premiere at 10:00 PM on Sunday as well, before the final eight episodes of Pimp My Ride air.

The episodes were previously aired during a June 9 marathon of Pimp My Ride.

The Pimp My Ride brand is still strong around the world, as
it is aired on a number of MTV channels worldwide, including Germany,
Poland, Austria, Italy, France and others.

Both Fat Joe and Lil' Jon have hosted international versions and rap
star Nelly is currently in negotiations to host a South African version
of the Pimp My Ride.

Pimp My Ride's replacement, Trick It Out, is a reality style series hosted by former American Idol contestant Becky O'Donohue.

Each week, two crews of four makeover specialists from some of the
top shops in the Los Angeles area go head to head in an attempt to
create the most unique vehicle.

Both teams are given similar cars, a theme, 10 days and $15,000 to customize a vehicle into a respectable ride.

The winning team keeps their customized vehicle, as well as the losers tricked out ride.

Trick It Out airs at 10:00 PM Sunday and the final season of Pimp My Ride follows, at 10:30 PM.
