      You must have missed the bit where he said he got tickets.

        Car owning history and stuff? Do they need to make sure you are a real car fan, or are they just after "interesting" people?
        I think they basically don't want 1) An all male crowd and 2) a bunch of chavs turning up and smashing the place up.

        I'll try and write down the questions they asked in a bit..

          Then a final selection process based on all information given - and then, if you 'pass' everything, you get the tickets.

          I've had less intense job interviews
          seriously? to go watch a freaking tv show get filmed...
          I genuinely just wouldn’t be that bothered tbh

            Yeah.. I didn't mind doing the online questionnaire, but I was really surprised when they called. I thought it was to say that I'd got tickets, but it was too do the phone chat.

            I'm pleased I got the tickets, but it was way more hassle than I thought it would be!

              Its Top Gear, with JC, and the Grand Tour variant, I think for most superfans the questions and process would be expected

                Well that was.............. Awesome.


                I think this season is going to be better than the last. All I will say is that it's a lot like the old top gear in all the good ways.

                      Possibly.. Depends what shots they use.

                      I was right next to the guests when they walked on (there's a clue in what has changed, although I won't say who they are ), and obviously got to see a load of the films for this coming season.

                      I don't want to give away too many spoilers, but I'll answer questions if people ask them, as long as it doesn't spoil it for others

                        However, I can now see why the selection process was so long.

                        There were roughly 250 tickets available for yesterdays show - each ticket admitted two people, so the audience was about 500.

                        But the stats are:

                        Total tickets available for the 15th November filming: 250
                        Total people applied for 15th November filming: Between 1,100,000 and 1,200,000 - just for that day!!

                            Get on it.

                            Season 2 is a bit different (read: Better imo).

                              I actually preferred it without guests. That was always the boring part I would skip. I felt it was just using up time while giving someone some needed attention for a film or whatever. I hate chat shows.
                              My local hospital has a sign which reads "This way for accidents and emergencies." Haven't people in hospital got enough to worry about without looking for further misfortune?

                                I thought if they are going to have guests, then have guests. Don't say you have guests and then just kill them off, followed by a terrible bit of scripted dialogue.
