Care To Guess How Many Hours Chris Evans Works On Top Gear In One Day?


Here's a hint: You only need one hand to count them.

Chris Evans is having a lot of problems adjusting to being the man tasked with bringing "Top Gear" back from the dead. However, the latest report indicates that Evans isn't putting a lot of time into the new show. According to Yahoo! UK, Evans gets up at 4:45 A.M. during the week to make it to the studio for his morning radio show at 6:30 A.M. The program runs for three hours, after which Evans runs off to get to work on Top Gear at 10:00 A.M. After just four hours the host leaves promptly at 2:00 P.M.

Apparently, Evans' morning show leaves him "useless" and "fried," these being his words as relayed to Top Gear Magazine. To be fair it's not like the host just leaves at 2:00 P.M. to go drink or nap. Actually, he goes and picks up his kids. Also, he is 49-years-old and does wake up at 4:45 A.M. and juggles multiple duties throughout the day. However, after hearing that Evans has a three-year arrangement worth roughly $4.2 million, it sounds like the host might be stretched a bit too thin to make this reboot work. This news is especially concerning since Jeremy Clarkson was a workaholic. Can the new show really be successful when the main presenter is only clocking 20 hours a week?
