What do Floyd Mayweather, Donald Trump, and Jeremy Clarkson all have in common? None of them have been nominated for Mr. Congeniality. You’re either a fan of them or you absolutely detest them. Say what you want, but their grandiose personalities have brought them international celebrity. One of them will soon be the leader of the free world.
This blog post focuses on Jeremy Clarkson, the host of the newest show on Amazon Prime. Despite being sued for assault and despite his polarizing personality, Jeremy Clarkson is back with his mates in a remix of Top Gear. Top Gear was an excellent show and I was disappointed when it was cancelled (sorry Matt LeBlanc, your show is not Top Gear). I tried to audition to become Clarkson’s replacement but was rebuffed by the BBC, most likely due to the fact that I can’t drive stick very well, if at all.
Today, I watched the first episode which has received mixed reviews. I love expensive cars, exotic travel, and the mighty dollar. Watching motivates me to push it a little harder the next time I travel and do crazier things worth blogging about beyond publishing anecdotes of heated toilets and free breakfast.
I will be tuning in weekly on Amazon Prime to see what these old men do next.
Anyone else watch? Who is your favorite character? Or do you like and dislike all of them simultaneously as much as I do and don’t?
