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

The Stig photo
Who actually plays The Stig is still unknown (no it is not Michael Schumacher contrary to the joke that was played on the first episode of series 13) but...

Some say...

- That every week he sheds his entire skin, like a snake and that for some reason he's allergic to the Dutch.

- He once wrestled an elephant to the ground using the power of his mind and an alarming hairstyle.

- His scrotum actually generates a small gravity field.

- That his tears are adhesive, and that if he caught fire he would burn for 1,000 days.

- He doesn't understand clouds and that his ear wax tastes like Turkish delight.

- He should be switched off at the mains overnight and that David Hasslehoff calls him 'son'.

- He drinks by sucking the moisture out of ducks, and that his crash helmet design is modelled on Britney Spears' head.

- He thought Star Wars was a documentary. And that he backed out of I'm A Celebrity at the last minute because he's scared of Australia. And trees. And Koo Stark.

...All we know is, he's called The Stig.
