Jeremy Clarkson has won Heat magazine’s 2008 “Weird Crush of the Year” award.
It’s the third year in a row the award has been scooped by a Top Gear presenter: Richard Hammond claimed the prize in 2006 and James May took the gong last year.
So where are all these covert Clarkson-fanciers hiding? Here’s how Auto Trader staff rated the Top Gear trio.
May told us she was no fan of Clarkson’s style:
I can’t stand him at all – he’s bombastic, pompous and really immature. And his dress sense is terrible.
I think he’s very funny though – I find myself laughing at him despite myself.
Appropriately, May preferred her namesake – James May:
He’s more unassuming and gentle and, like me, he’s got a taste for classic old cars.
Caroline had some sympathy for ‘captain slow’ as well:
I feel sorry for him having to put up with the other two all the time. But not enough to fancy him!
Jaclyn, meanwhile, confessed to having the hots for Hammond:
Richard Hammond is so cute! They should have him on more. I liked him better with shorter hair though.
Samantha was less taken with the Hamster:
He looks like he’s put his finger in an electrical socket!
Why do you think the Top Gear stars come out on top in the ‘Weird crush’ awards? Do you fancy any of them?
And will the Stig win in 2009?
