Really? This Guy Wants To Replace Chris Evans On Top Gear?


And his chances are?

As the dust continues to settle in the wake of Chris Evans’ departure as lead host of the revamped Top Gear, the BBC has already made it clear that Evans won’t be replaced. Co-host Matt LeBlanc will probably become the full-time lead and co-hosts Rory Reid and Chris Harris will hopefully receive (rightfully deserved) promotions. But now someone else has thrown their name in as a candidate to work alongside the remaining hosts.

Rapper and car enthusiast 50 Cent told the UK’s Daily Star that he "would love to work on Top Gear. I could save that show for sure, but it would cost them." OK. Go on, you have our attention. "There ain’t a car I haven’t owned over the years. My car collection is as good as anybody’s out there. Top Gear was one of the world’s iconic shows and it’s a shame it came to this. The show since the old team left has been unrecognizable and if it don’t get back to where it should be soon then it may never recover." The BBC has so far not commented on 50 Cent’s remarks, but we doubt the network is taking him seriously. Then again, someone like 50 Cent would certainly bring a new dynamic to the show. Could be interesting.
