Jeremy Clarkson calls The Stig a 'Greedy Tw*t' [w/poll]

It would seem that the vitriol between the trio of presenters on Top Gear and Ben Collins, the man behind the Stig's helmet, isn't just for show. During a recent charity event, Jeremy Clarkson, arguably the leader of the TG three amigos, made it clear just how he feels about Collins' unmasking of himself by calling the former tame racing driver "The Greedy Tw*t." That's certainly

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

Some say the BBC is launching an investigation... all we know is, he's not The Stig

It would seem that someone is going through the trouble of staging an elaborate ruse by pretending to be none other than The Stig – at least, according to the BBC. An article in the North-West Evening Mail says that one Martin Perzylo recently spotted a suspiciously mute, white-suited individual blasting down the M55 in a Porsche. Perzylo followed the figure for

Stig gives a lesson on the Top Gear test track

It's time to do your homework, kids. The blokes at Top Gear have built a virtual representation of the Stig's personal playground. If you've got some time to kill, head on over to the site for a turn-by-turn breakdown of the UK show's test track, including the elusive history of each corner's

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

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<

Top Gear could be U.S. bound with British hosts

Is The Stig headed to the States? It appears that the wildly popular automotive TV show, Top Gear, could be heading to these shores (again). The BBC and The Sun newspaper have reported that there are again plans to do a Top Gear U.S. version, but this time with current hosts Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May. Previous attempts at doing an American Top Gear lost the magic when they tried to replicate the show with different presenters. Although airing the current UK show on Discover

Dutch TV interview proves The Stig is indeed human

Some Dutch TV show visited the Top Gear set recently and interviewed the cast. Well, everybody but Jeremy. But the list of interviewees included THE STIG! Even though the others fail to acknowledge that the Stig is even human, this Sheryl Crow lookalike manages to coax a few words from the test driver behind the white suit and helmet. Those who have su
