Chris Evans to lead Top Gear line-up
The rich getting richer …
There are so many people in UK and the BBC have to choose this bloke.
Those at BBC are really bunch of jobworth a-hole zomebie maggots.
No wonder we are screwed.
Nope. I can happily not watch him as he has annoying voice and he is not funny.

Awesome. He’s got a net worth in excess of £100m, owns a car worth £12m, gets paid close to £3/4m a year or £1000 an HOUR for radio 2, and has now picked up another £mm contract paid for by the license
We’re absolute mugs and the BBC is far to quick to throw money at already grossly overpaid “talent”.Posted 3 years agojust5minutesMember
“throwing money at something that has the potential to continue to rake in much more money sounds pretty sensible to me.”
Yes but that’s not the point of the BBC is it? If they want to make commercial programming they should raise their own finance and not rely on a mandatory tax on the public for working capital.Posted 3 years ago

Works for me. We give them money, they make shows, they sell shows, they make more money, they make more shows……Posted 3 years ago

If they mention Top Gear I expect to see the original 3 blokes.
Bit harsh on Angela Rippon that comment [/quote]
She was on for two seasons so does not count.
However, even Angela Rippon is better than that Evans bloke.
I would watch Angela for a laugh but not that Evans bloke coz he is Not funny.

He was always the replacement for Clarkson. That doesn’t mean it’ll be any good, but if they want to keep the show a farce then he’s the man.
I miss the days when it was actually about reviewing cars, but then that was a dull show by comparison. What it became was just idiocy.Posted 3 years agobikebouyMember
Wasted opportunity on boarding Evans IMO. Whilst he’ll take his R2 listeners along, most of which know who he is and what he does, the other section of his audience listen to him because local radio is tosh and the commercial radio stations are just plainly wrong. They’ll either flock like pigeons around a bag of chips or get frightened off by his “inane” grin.
Format change or not, Top Gear it won’t be. A pale imitation ? Dunno about that. A new format constructed around the BBC’s current craze for recording everything on an iPhone, undoubtedly.
Thing that I will not like, and sorry lads, but there will be too many Northern Accents. It’ll be the same as BBC News does now, they walk out into Salford, grab a passer by and haul them in with some “human” story. In reality we can’t understand a word they say and really there should be subtitles.
I’ll watch the first two episodes and take it from there, 3 years though ? 3 whole years of chucking more of our License Fee into Evans already huge Bank Account ?
It’s seriously about time either WE took over the BBC or it generates it’s own income.Posted 3 years ago
