The competition in UK television seems to be pretty fierce as BBC rival, Channel 4, apparently has just swiped a baking show called the Great British Bake Off.
Why should you care? Well, if you’re a Top Gear fan like me, you don’t want to see the show completely die off. You want to see it have some kind of success to help push the boys to the make a show that’s better and more fun.
Competition breeds innovation is definitely something I live by.
So, back to why this even matters. The current host of the GBBO is a guy named Paul Hollywood. Whether that’s his real name or not is up for discussion, but the fact is he’s someone the BBC want to keep.
They even offered him a show last week to cover car cultures all over the world, but it seems like the beebs might have to lure Hollywood with the Top Gear hosting spot recently vacated by Chris Evans.
Hollywood has apparently a couple of Aston Martins and loves to ride his motorbikes, which of course, makes him FULLY qualified to host the biggest automotive show in the world, right? Oh, he owns a full leather suit while he rides and has a British accent, so yes . . done deal.
