The whole point of Amazon’s The Grand Tour was to have a big traveling tent as the show’s studio, was it not? That’s what was supposed to make it different from The Show That Must Not Be Named, right? Well, for The Grand Tour’s upcoming second season, it seems that the tent will not be, er, touring.
While filming a segment of The Grand Tour in Switzerland in June, host Richard Hammond tumbled off of a hill climb course and the electric supercar he was in wound up in flames. The FIA and others later launched an investigation into the crash, and the findings left the hill climb’s organizers in all kinds of trouble.
Other than host reactions and a short clip of what happened, we haven’t gotten much information on The Grand Tour host Richard Hammond’s huge, fiery crash during filming.

The Grand Tour host Richard Hammond is in the hospital after a big, fiery wreck. Jeremy Clarkson is holed up rewriting scripts for a quickly approaching second season.

You may not have forgotten that tonight is the 13th and final episode of the premiere season of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May’s Amazon Prime show, The Grand Tour. I almost did forget. And I haven’t yet seen the 12th episode. Nor the last 20 minutes of the 11th.
Most situations can be made better by the presence of a dog. Top Gear evidently thought so, too, when they brought a dog—christened Top Gear Dog—onto the show nearly 10 years ago. She seemed like a sweet thing, and unfortunately, she has just passed away at the age of 11.
On a recent episode of the Grand Tour, we learned something truly tragic: Richard Hammond denies himself the joys of ice cream consumption because he seems to have conflated the concept of eating ice cream with his own sexual orientation. It’s tragic.
In a short time, The Grand Tour has set a record or two. Its $3.2 million opening is likely the most expensive television scene ever, and it had the most watched Amazon Prime premiere.
