Jeremy Clarkson will be Britain's highest-paid TV host

By Faiming_low on 31 Aug 2015 in Other News

Attached Image According Mirror, ex-Top Gear host, Jeremy Clarkson will be Britain's highest-paid TV host after signing a nearly S$22 million per year deal with Amazon. This also means that Clarkson basically improved on his former salary at the BBC by 10 times.

His buddies, Richard Hammond, James May and Producer Andy Wilman, aren't going to be left out with Amazon's generosity, with each of them allegedly earning S$15.7 million per year.
 

Amazon Prime is said to be spending nearly S$350 million on 36 episodes over three years and each individual episode will have a huge budget of S$9.8 million. For your info, the budget for each BBC Top Gear episode back then was only between S$1 to S$2 million. 
 
Hopefully, with such a big budget, we will get to see even more exciting stuff from the trio!

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?
