After yesterday’s drama about Chris Evans reportedly making a producer weep, we decided to reach out to the BBC to figure out what the heck is going on with Top Gear’s host replacement. They finally got back with us today, saying that Chris Evans is basically a modern day Jesus Christ. But they would say that,…
The old BBC’s Top Gear is one of the most popular shows available for streaming on Netflix. Not to be out-done by the old crew’s new show over on Amazon Prime, Netflix will continue to stream the new re-formatted Top Gear internationally.
We know the first season of new Top Gear had to be shortened because they just couldn’t do enough filming, but what they did manage to shoot is right here, from Reliant Robins to Dodge Viper ACRs with machine guns on their roof.
Top Gear, the upcoming BBC program that will definitely not be a complete calamity, has encountered a few incidents of late. Rumors about power struggles, creative control, and a general shitshow have plagued pre-production. In response, the BBC has appointed a sheriff who will keep everyone’s asses in line.
There have been troubling signs surrounding the upcoming revamp of BBC’s Top Gear. A new report suggests that lead host Chris Evans fought against hiring Friends veteran and car guy Matt LeBlanc as a co-host, and the show’s launch has now been delayed two weeks.
Chris Harris is in Top Gear. Chris Harris is in Top Gear. Chris Harris is in Top Gear.
Top Gear’s new American presenter got a 1984 Nissan pickup truck from his dad as a first car, but since then he’s been stepping up his game, going through a couple of Ferraris before settling for a very scary Porsche. He also finds rear-engined cars to be the fastest.
The BBC will announce multiple new additions to the Top Gear team soon enough, but as we wait for Chris Harris and Sabine Schmitz to confirm our suspicions—or not—let’s have a look at how big a gearhead Matt LeBlanc really is.
Chris Harris? Sabine Schmitz? David Coulthard? Nope. Instead, it’s Joey Tribbiani’s time on Top Gear, ladies and gentlemen.
The new Top Gear has not had an easy time so far. There’s an entire laundry list of issues regarding the show, and the latest bullet point is that new host Chris Evans reportedly threatened to quit due to interference from the BBC executives.
Being a passenger next to a racing driver like Chris Evans’ new Top Gear co-host Sabine Schmitz can shake up most stomachs, but perhaps we expect Jeremy Clarkson’s replacement to have tougher guts in his line of work.
Top Gear (yes, the BBC version) presenter Chris Evans announced that the show will return to the network on May 8, but has not indicated who the co-presenters will be—if there are any.
It looks like for now, Top Gear’s new host Chris Evans is a solo act rather than a member of a power trio.
Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May have left some enormous shoes to fill when it comes to hosting Top Gear. But we now know that the three new presenters will at the very least include Chris Evans, maybe or maybe not a woman, and also you. Because TG is now holding open auditions. Really.
Chris Evans, Top Gear’s newest host, was only offered the job late last week, he said in his first extended words on the new gig, while speaking on his radio show. But that’s not really the big story. The weirder bit is actually about former TG hosts Richard Hammond and May. They were apparently considering a return…
