Top Gear’s “Stig” races over to Fifth Gear!!!
Ben Collins, who was the main person behind Top Gear’s white Stig character until recently, is joining Fifth Gear for at least 5 episodes. He will host segments and in addition perform “Stig-like” challenges.
It is said that multiple people portrayed the Stig, but Ben Collins has been the main person and the one who set lap times since 2003 when the black Stig was killed off after Perry McCarthy, who played the black Stig, came out with an autobiography. Ben Collins is now doing the same with an autobiography due out soon.
Sources say that the white Stig may be killed off and replaced with a third Stig.
