Breaking: Fifth Gear Still Alive And Kicking?
Posted January 8th, 2010 at 11:43 by Viper007Bond in Fifth Gear, Jonny Smith, Tiff Needell
It looks like rumors of Fifth Gear’s demise were false, or at least not 100% for sure.
Jonny Smith just tweeted the following:
Breaking news: Fifth Gear IS coming back. When more factual gossip emerges I will let you know.
Wow, such quick responses! Basically, we all know there’s room for 2 car TV shows. FG will simply be a reviews based visual car magazine.
No Top Gear chasing – just straight to business with grassroots reviewing/comparing/buying/giving away cars.
An unconfirmed account called @tiff_tv which may or may not be Tiff Needell also tweeted this:
Home to the news that, after much negotiatiing Fifth Gear looks like it will after all be returning to your screens sometime in the Spring!
If that’s true, then it looks like it was a matter of the show’s cost versus the show’s profits. Glad they got it all sorted out though as while I think most people will of course agree that Top Gear is more entertaining to watch, Fifth Gear fills it’s niche nicely by providing factual and relevant reviews, something that frankly Top Gear doesn’t do so much anymore. Great news.
Tom Ford Prank Calls Jonny Smith (Fifth Gear Outtake)

Besides having segments from the show, Fifth Gear’s website also features a few behind the scenes clips including outtakes.
Their latest clip is an outtake (I assume, I don’t know if it’ll make the airing) from this coming Monday’s episode. In the clip, Tom tests out the new Honda Accord’s bluetooth capabilities by prank calling Jonny. If you’re bored at work (or even if you’re not), it’s worth a watch.
Thanks to ahpadt for the tip.
