Hammond has always been my fav of the (3) and prob the most successful of them as well

Look at all that Hammond does vs what the other two do - Also, their backgrounds.......Clarkson is a fat bloated opinionated fuck but damn if he does not make me laugh

Couple of seasons ago the Hammond and May were threatening to quit the show because they were being paid 15,000 per episode while Clarkson was receiving 1 million per year.

It all depends on your style of humor. I find Clakrson to be a genius. No doubt others are very entertaining as well. The best part is that they have great chemistry amongst themselves.

Anything can be scripted - They are actors for god's sake

Clarkson is a fat fuck who thinks because he has a show, his word is law - Hell, if I got to research cars and drive everything under the Sun, I too could be like him and spew my opinion and lash out at anyone who challenges me, just as I am doing with this reply

He is funny and I love the show but the show is not him at all

I think the surface they ran on played a HUGE roll in that

This just goes to show, if you want to beat a Porsche in a one mile drag race, use gravity.

It is far better to be thought of as a smartass than an dumbass. And as American Humorist Robert Benchley (1889-1945) noted, "no matter how well-intended, any reply to a dumbass question will inevitably appear smartassed". - Bob Hall (creator of the Miata)
