Top Gear (UK)

More than just a show to review new cars, Top Gear is essential viewing. Not just for petrol heads, it also has a huge following amongst people with little or no interest in cars - both male and female. This is due to the show's irreverent approach to motoring, the humour and the priceless chemistry between the show's presenters. A global audience of 350 million can't be wrong.

Character Bio

Richard Hammond photo
AKA "The Hamster"

After being poached from a cable channel that cleverly combined blokey motoring shows with soft-core porn (we hasten to add that he was only involved with the motoring shows), Richard quickly established himself as an integral part of the Top Gear machine. The Hamster is an avowed car nut who brings to the show a unique blend of feisty enthusiasm and (unlike the other two) the ability to run up a flight of stairs without blacking-out.

Richard's taste in cars can be summed up in two words - 'Land' and 'Rover'. He also has a long-running affair with British sports car manufacturer Morgan, and is the proud owner of an Opel Kadett called 'Oliver', that he adopted and brought home from a recent Top Gear trip to Botswana.
