What do you think of the choice?
After months of speculation on who would lead the new "Top Gear" we finally have our answer. Ferrari nut and British TV presenter Chris Evans has been tabbed as the new face of the show. According to TopGear.com Evans has signed a three-year deal. The news has just broken so there's not much in the way of comment from Evans yet, but he did say this: "I promise I will do everything I possibly can to respect what has gone on before and take the show forward."
According to Kim Shillinglaw, controller of BBC Two and Four, then there's nothing to worry about moving forward. "Chris is a huge fan of Top Gear and has great respect for the craft and work ethic of one of the best production teams in the world. He knows the phenomenal attention to detail it takes to make a single sequence of Top Gear, let alone a whole series. He is already full of brilliant ideas and I can't wait for him to get started." His salary and co-presenters were not revealed. However, the co-presenters should be named soon as the report says series 23 will begin filming in a few weeks and debut in early 2016.
