Ben Collins suggests 'Who Wants to Be the Stig?' reality tv show

Another day, another Stig story. But this one's a bit different. The now ex-white-suited BBC driver Ben Collins has suggested that Top Gear run an X-Factor style contest to find the next Stig. From his interview with the Telegraph:

Top Gear Season 15 hitting BBC America Sept. 27

If you're like us, you've been catching bits and pieces of Top Gear Season 15 on the Interwebs with few complaints. We'll take what we can get, after all, but the world's greatest automotive entertainment show is best watched on a pristine wide-screen television set. Beginning September 27, we won't have to interface our Macs and PCs to check out Clarkson, Mays, Hammond and the Stig, as the show will air uninterrupted on BBC America on September 27. How can you pass up the opportunity t

Why the Stig outed himself

The Stig, as we're all now aware, is portrayed by talented wheelman Ben Collins. Stiggie, like the three Top Gear presenters, is beloved by fans around the globe. It's hard to attend a motorsports event without someone claiming to be a fat relative of

Some say that Top Gear will viciously kill off The Stig

When murmurings began hitting the web that the man who plays The Stig was itching to publish his memoirs, we knew it was only a matter of time before the character met his end on the BBC's Top Gear. According to The Sun, James May has hinted that White Stig will be dealt with in the same manner as his predecessor, Black Stig. As you may recall, Black S

BBC loses court battle to block the Stig book

The Stig has taken another step toward shrugging off the shackles of the BBC. As you may recall, Top Gear's tame racing driver recently locked horns with the Beeb after he made it clear he wanted to publish his memoirs. The show's producers found issue with text, saying that revealing his i

Report: BBC blocking The Stig's memoirs

Some say he's a literary giant, and that a portion of his autobiography is featured on the Rosetta Stone. All we know is, he's ticked off the BBC bosses by seeking to publish his memoirs. According to UKPA and ESPN, the tame racing driver has written the tale of his life and wants to share it with the world. The only problem is doing so would violate the confidentiality agreement in the Stig's contract

Report: BBC planning Top Gear video game

The BBC is planning to turn some of its most popular shows into video games, and along with Doctor Who and a kiddie show called The Night Garden, the Beeb is considering a console version of our favorite motoring show, Top Gear. There's not a lot (or any) information on how the Top Gear game will work, but we do know that the BBC is most interested in creating the games for the Nintendo DS and Nintendo Wii. Howeve

Top Gear: A little history about everybody's favorite TV show

What if the Stig was known as the Gimp? It's doubtful Top Gear's mysterious racing driver – or the show itself – would have proved as enormously popular. Would you walk around in a shirt proclaiming, "I Am The Gimp?" Doubtful, but if Jeremy Clarkson and the show's producer Andy Wilman had had their way, that's what we'd be calling old Stiggy. Luckily, cooler

Comic Relief to auction ridealong with Stig

We still don't know who the White Stig is, and he could be replaced by the Black Stig, the Purple Stig, or the Rainbow Stig pretty soon. But before he goes, you can win a ride with him around the Top Gear test track. Red Nose Day is a fundraising event put on by the Br

NBC working on Top Gear remake for the States

Bionic Woman. Knight Rider. And now....Top Gear? NBC, America's remake network, has ordered a pilot of an Americanized Top Gear. Expect to see all the usual Top Gear conventions, including three presenters; a masked Stig-like driver; a private test track; taping in a hangar before a live audience; and (probably D-List) celebs driving midsize cars. Unfortunately, you won't see the program's British hosts, Jeremy Clarkson, James May, and Richard Hammond. And thi

2007 AB Gift Guide: Race the Stig Game

Some say "Top Gear"'s tamed racing driver has always owned Park Place, Boardwalk and Free Parking. Others say he's never been beaten at tic-tac-toe. All we know is that he's called The Stig, and he's got his own board game called Top Gear Race The Stig Game<
