Last week, the BBC announced that Matt LeBlanc would join Chris Evans as Top Gear’s second host. Now, it’s revealed the rest of the cast.
All told there will be seven presenters of the show—which means Jalopnik was right in its claims that there would be at least five. Alongside Evans and LeBlanc will be:
- Eddie Jordan, who was also rumored to be making an appearance. He joins from the BBC’s Formula 1 team.
- Chris Harris, who hosts a popular YouTube motoring programme, and was photographed in a pub with Evans recently, somewhat giving the game away.
- Sabine Schmitz, a kick-ass German racing driver who can drive a van around the Nurburgring very, very fast.
- Rory Reid from Recombu Cars.
The seventh, of course, is The Stig. Yes, that counts.
Jalopnik correctly predicted all but Rory Reid, who was at any rate recruited from the show’s 2015 public auditions.
The new show debuts May 8th.
