Default Jeremy Clarkson VS Tiff Needell

Two presenters,who completely revolutionised car shows on TV.Both quite different in nature actually.

Here are two videos for you so that it could help in making your choice,if you dont know them still.



Oh before anybody asks ,I voted for Tiff but believe me it was not an easy choice to make.

They may be poles apart and I dont mean the height here but I have to vote for Jeremy, anyday anytime anyhow....
Tiff's nice and all but for sheer humor that comes naturally its JEREMY all the way!

I like Tiff for his amazing driving skills & the fact that he knows what he's talking about. For those who don't know Tiff came third in 24hr of Lemans whilst driving a Porsche 962!

But Jeremy though not such a good driver is a character beyond compere! His Wit, Ability to mock cars & people & rubbish attitude to so many things (including bikes & bikers) is what epitomises Top Gear as the greatest Motoring TV show ever!! So it has to be Jeremy for me.

Total Jeremy Clarkson bhakt here. Ofcourse he is old and angry and opinionated but he is just soooooo good! There are some things which only he can do and get away with.

Either of them didnt revolutionize anything- they made an otherwise bland and static auto show more watchable.

If its presentation skills we're talking abt - Jeremy wins hats down. Tiff was never meant to be a presenter.

Obviously if its racing, its Tiff all the way. Jeremy is not a racer by any definition of that word - besides he's too fleshy to be any serious racer.

Chalk and cheese, apples and oranges - that sort of thing!

The poll is slightly befuddling due to this discomparate PoV. However, if its pure Entertainment Value we're talking abt, I would chose Tiff - I find Jeremy slightly on the wronger side of racism.

Unfortunately out of the few top gear episodes i have seen (and the damn cutting versions that are aired in india) i never saw tiff needell anyways after a bit googleing i guess he comes on fifth gear and a better driver then clarkson

I wished they aired the full versions they air in london

Anyways i loved the f430 review linked above the guys good But i'd rather say Jeremy Uncle is Just too good at what he does For sheer Brutality

He is the Best Presenter Around.
Not just in comparision with other Auto shows, but other talk shows too.

Tiff is a guy who knows the machine well but . . . he cant present the same as well as Jeremy does.

Jeremy & his antics & his conversations with hammon, may are rocking.

JC all the way.

Tiff is a good presenter but Jeremy is in a league of his own. His stiff upper Oh So Brit attitude and tonge in cheek british comments are what make me vote for him. If Qwenton William (or is it Wilson) were to be compared, Id vote for him tough. For now ots Jeremy all the way.
