The Grand Tour Hosts Discuss The Firing Of The American

The teasers for the second season of The Grand Tour continue as the show has released a new clip which features the hosts debating who’s going to call “The American” and tell him he’s fired.

In the video, Clarkson says “We’re going to have to get rid of him” and Richard Hammond responds “Yeah, well he annoys people.” Clarkson goes on to say “He annoys me” as James May walks in and asks if they’re talking about him.

Clarkson eventually calls former NASCAR driver Mike Skinner and tells him that Hammond doesn’t think he should be part of the show next season. After a few seconds, Clarkson says Skinner hung up on him and the hosts agree they need to find a replacement. Clarkson says they’ll need to hold auditions and the requirements are they “mustn’t be fat, clumsy, or slow.”

It remains unclear who will replace Skinner but he has previously said “I agree with many of you that it sucked – if you’re gonna wear Evil Knievel’s firesuit, you need to be Evil Flipping Knievel! Peace out.” Skinner also said he wishes the show and its hosts the best of luck.

The second season of The Grand Tour lands on Amazon Prime Video on December 8th.

    They all need to be fired. It’s so stale. I haven’t gotten through a full episode in over a year.

    It’s amazing! Jeremy Clarkson makes Matt Farah sound interesting. WTF? ZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzz……………….

  • SteersUright

    The once witty and original Jeremy Clarkson has gotten dull and repetitive. These guys are too old and too rich to give a damn about cars anymore. It happens, thats when its time to depart gracefully or completely reinvent yourself. Clarkson should be an auto writer, thats where he shines today.
