Rumors of the Gear Knobs moniker began swirling after Amazon confirmed that it had signed contracts with the British trio, along with producer Andy Wilman. Just prior to the deal being announced, trademark applications were filed for the aforementioned name by a company that had previously worked with Clarkson. The famous broadcaster has put the kibosh on the rumor himself, via his personal Twitter feed.
I see that many people think our new show is called Gear Knobs. Well you heard it here first. It isn't.— Jeremy Clarkson (@JeremyClarkson) October 9, 2015
Seems pretty conclusive, doesn't it? And it also seems that conjecture can start again in full as to what the show helmed by the former Top Gear crew will actually be named. At this point, we can only confirm that it won't be called Top Gear, since that's still the name of the British program now helmed by Chris Evans, and that it clearly won't be called Gear Knobs. So, if you have a really good idea that you think Clarkson and Amazon should be aware of, maybe there's still time to make a suggestion. Feel free to do so in our Comments section below.
