Top Gear to Shrink Chris Evan’s Role

Posted by: Xavier Kwan onJune 16th, 2016


It took only the premiere episode of the rebooted UK TV show to tell audiences that lead host Chris Evans was really not a well fit for the dynamics of Top Gear. After only taking in half the viewers in the second episode, that sealed the deal. Top Gear decided to switch things around in the third episode by bring in Extra Gear hosts Chris Harris and Rory Reid. Both personalities have been a great hit on their Extra Gear features, but audiences believed that they may even make better Top Gear hosts.

So with that said, Chris Evans may start to take a smaller role in future episodes of the new Top Gear leaving Harris and Reid with more air time. Matt Leblanc will continue his role as host, and little has been said about Sabine Schmitz. She’s an amazing driver, and can definitely talk the talk, but her personality has yet to truly come through in the show.

We are looking forward to see where this shake up will take things for Top Gear. We still have hope for the show.
