BBC’s new Top Gear had a catastrophic start in the first episode image

Whenever you turn a new chapter there are issues that need to be ironed out. This is what’s apparently happening with BBC’s Top Gear show, which now has to entice us with an all new ensemble cast.

It appears the start of season for the Top Gear show was extremely frustrating as filming with the usual live audience turned into a chaotic shoot when Chris Evans reportedly lost his composure. During the return to Dunsfold Aerodrome for the live audience studio segments, a long list of small catastrophes appeared. Among the numerous issues, a British tabloid says lead host Chris Evans lost his cool because of the crowd and reverted into an expletive-laden tirade mode. During the show’s intro alone Evans allegedly needed no less than ten takes to try and get it right – though things actually went downhill from there. Evans was also frustrated the audience didn’t respond well to his jokes and ahead of the swearing he started instructing the crowd how to act.

“Don’t fold your arms, don’t have your hands in your pockets,” Evans reportedly asked the audience. His tirade wasn’t the only issue it appears. The four hour taping also saw Matt LeBlanc having problems with the lines and the star guest initially billed for the shoot dropped out just prior to filming. We’re talking about Brad Pitt, who had to be replaced on the go by actor Jesse Eisenberg and celebrity chef Gordon Ramsey.
