shame on you for posting.

Whats the point of having the coolness of the stig for someone to go out of their way to figure out who it is.

Kinda ruins it.


people telling someone that they are about to get engaged, what present someone else is getting them, Surprises, that there is no santa or jesus or tooth fairy.


just, ruiner.

They've been saying it was him for a few years now.
This isn't so much news as confirmation.. Is it?

Jezza had Shumi on the show years ago and told everyone that MS was The Stig

All and all, who cares - The show is great - They are a little biased at times but other than that, I enjoy it

Do you mean this year when MS drove the FXX on the test track? Regardless the original is light years ahead of this pile...

No, he had him on years ago and basically made fun of him the whole time for being short

So Tanner Foust from Supercars Exposed/Wars, the fire chief from Rescue Me, and some bearded IT looking schuck are the hosts of the US Top Gear. What happened to Adam Carolla? He'd be better than the 2nd and 3rd guys.

Well, Great: The Stig is Ben Collins.

In a disappointment to Top Gear fans everywhere, the potential identity of “The Stig” may have been accidentally revealed over the weekend.

Adam was filming a pilot for NBC when Topgear was given the go ahead on history, so he had to decline the offer to host. Sucks on the timing, because the pilot didn't get picked up. Of course, topgear was also a pilot NBC didn't pick up.
