Here Are Some More People Who Could Host Top Gear America

Illustration for article titled Here Are Some More People Who Could Host Top Gear America

Today we learned who the hosts of the new Top Gear America are, and while the trio may not be what many expected, we certainly wish them well. I’m personally a fan of Wookie, and who doesn’t want more of the blind guy from Contact in their car-shows? Still, we couldn’t help brainstorming some other Top Gear America dream teams, and I think we came up with some good ones.


If you’re a believer in the cosmological concept of the Multiverse, then perhaps there’s somewhere where these variants of TG:USA exist; if that’s the case, and you’re reading this from one of those alternate universes, please comment and tell us how the show is!
