The Ice Road Truckers Star Who Was Put On The Ice With Less Than A Year Of Trucking Experience

Fans of “Ice Road Truckers” will remember Steph Custance as a new recruit who joined the series during Season 10, where she learned the ropes of the profession under veteran truck drivers Todd Dewey and Lisa Kelly. The show doesn’t clarify exactly how much experience Steph had, other than some experience as a truck driver and absolutely zero experience on the ice roads. It’s pretty telling that her very first appearance in the series saw her undergoing a rigorous driving test at the behest of her boss, Polar Industries’ Mark Kohaykewych.

Further proof of Steph’s lack of experience as a driver can be seen in a 2016 interview between Lisa Kelly and Overdrive, in which the “Ice Road Truckers” star claims that Steph “didn’t really drive a truck before the show.” Considering the extreme conditions and daunting roads that the series’ cast members have to endure on a daily basis, it seems extremely odd that the showrunners would pick somebody with such little experience driving a truck and no ice experience whatsoever.

Despite how strange Steph Custance’s addition to the series might have seemed at the time, fans know that the young truck driver ended up becoming a capable and respected member of the team. Indeed, Steph continued to work as an ice road trucker throughout Season 10 and 11 before the show’s cancellation back in 2017.
