They're all a waste of space besides Matt LeBlanc. Why try to mask a lack of chemistry by bombarding us with SIX presenters? Hire two guys LeBlanc can work with and call it good.

Sabine had one funny line in the whole series talking about how crappy the zo6 was compared to her Ferrari.
I expressed the same opinion elsewhere, this is what I wrote (pre-Evans quitting):
I hate Evans. He feels forced and over enthusiastic. I enjoy Leblanc, and how stoic he is in comparison. I like Harris and Reid, but I feel like neither of them would do well in front of the audience. They're great in the car, but they're not performers. I really like Sabine, and feel like she could take over for Evans, but I feel like she may get frustrated with the language barrier from time to time. Eddie Jordan straight up bores me. He's like the worst part of James May stripped out into a boring person.
I straight up hate the change to the star in a reasonable priced car. There's no point to the whole "vote for one of the guests" because Evans will just award a point to make it a tie before the race anyways. And when they do the "explain what Guest B is doing right now" is super forced, especially when you realize they're straight up reading off a teleprompter. You always knew they were there to push a movie, album, or something, but at least there was some kind of conversation there. Now it's just shilling between clips, and there's no news bit anymore. The actual change to a Rallycross race is fine.
That being said, I'll still watch it. I do enjoy the pre-recorded clips.
I just want my car to look good, my bitch to look better, and my wallet to be fat, not flat...
