What qualifies you to be a Top Gear host? Is it showmanship, charisma, fame, or a huge collection of cars? There’s been two names floating around rumored to be Chris Evans replacement, ever since he stepped down amid terrible ratings and an alleged sexual assault investigation. A British rapper has also thrown their name into the ring claiming he has more ‘bants’. Now Curtis James Jackson III, better known as 50 Cent, believes HE deserves the Top Gear top hosting job.
Even he recognizes the once highest rated television program in the world is now in major trouble as it tries to figure out the new lineup:
I would love to work on Top Gear, I could save that show for sure, but it would cost them.
There ain’t a car I haven’t owned over the years, my car collection is as good as anybody’s out there.
Top Gear was one of the world’s iconic shows and it’s a shame it came to this.
The show since the old team left has been unrecognizable and if it don’t get back to where is should be soon then it may never recover.
It’s a show you know you can watch any country you are in.
Do you think Fiddy has what it takes to take over Top Gear in Series 24 when it begins filming in September 2016? See for yourself as he lays down his Television skills on The View… of all places:

While the BBC tries to figure out what to do with their once prized programming, Amazon Prime’s The Grand Tour has been flexing their Trio’s muscles by recently teasing the very first Grand Tour clip. Meanwhile the Boys have been having an incredible time shooting in various places, as seen after they’ve shot their very first tent show in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Regardless of who takes over or doesn’t take over, it’s clear the BBC’s Top Gear show is at high risk of becoming irrelevant. We’ve also learned that some of the current Top Gear presenters may not even have a contract agreement yet! Perhaps there will be even more changes. Stick around as more of this unfolds in the near future.
