While The Grand Tour has received rave reviews since its premiere, becoming one of the most highly rated shows ever, there’s one segment that has raised a few eyebrows, ‘Celebrity Brain Crush’.
While it may have been funny on the first episode where a number of celebrities were ‘killed off’ before they were interviewed, it reappearance in the second show was a disappointment.
Nevertheless, it doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon with lead host Jeremy Clarkson recently saying he’d love to have Donald Trump on the segment, just so he could stage his death.
While speaking with Business Insider at the launch of Drive Tribe, Clarkson said “God yes” when asked about Trump appearing on the show.
“Have you seen what we’re doing with everybody? There’s some very amusing ways [we’d kill Trump off]. We live in interesting times,” he said.
Despite Clarkson’s eagerness to fake the death of Trump, it seems very unlikely the show will get an impersonator of the President-elect just to kill him off, particularly given the show’s new focus on American viewership.
In an ideal world, we’d like to see the segment scrapped entirely. Let’s wait and see if it re-emerges in episode 3.
