Jeremy Clarkson doesn’t know what a stop sign looks like (VIDEO)
A new feature of the popular quiz show gives contestants the chance to ‘ask the host’ for help if they are stuck on a question. When contestant David was flummoxed about the classic shape of an official stop sign, he probably thought it was a safe bet to ask the host for assistance - although he did choose to phone a friend before turning to Clarkson.
Clarkson fans are used to seeing him talk about everything motor-related throughout his 15 years as host of Top Gear, as well as on his new car show, The Grand Tour, so to see him stumped by such a simple road safety question came as a shock.
Can’t believe Clarkson doesn’t know what shape a stop sign is, I’ve been driving 5 minutes and I know 😏 #WhoWantsToBeAMillionaire— Robyn (@RobynDRFC) May 6, 2018
I’m actually really enjoying Jeremy Clarkson as host of #WhoWantsToBeAMillionaire... but three lifelines on how many sides does a STOP sign have! Really?!— Elliot Gonzalez (@elliot_gonzalez) May 6, 2018
After pondering what the answer could be, Clarkson defended his ignorance on the shape of the familiar traffic signal, saying, “The Highway Code - it is 1977 since I looked at that.”
Despite his lack of knowledge, he told the contestant the answer could be an octagon shape, which turned out to be the right call. The contestant went on to choose a 50-50 lifeline, where two of the four possible answers are removed, before picking octagon as his final answer.
