Why does Richard Hammond speak like that?

Found 19th Jul 2011
Since the beginning of Top Gear, all three presenters have developed an annoying accent, stupidly pronouncing words.

'Becuzz'?

Lowering voice pitch at the end of each sentence?

AHHHHH!!!

Also, that hair style aint doing anything for him. Just saying.

Clarkson is awesome. The others are in his shadow.
Top Gear is dull and unfunny, the presenters are solely responsible.

James May says "becuz" so I guess Hammond is copying him. And I hate that gulp/breathe in thing he does when he's speaking. And his googley eyes and 80s hair. And that stupid necklace he wears. And the fact I have to record Total Wipeout so I can fast forward his bits just to watch idiots fall off big red balls.

That dragster's roll cage has a lot to answer for.
Keep Clarkson and "some say" ditch the other two.Could do with a bit of eye candy.
They are pandering to their dumb audience.

I love Top Gear and I've never seen any black and white bears on the show, they're not pandaing to anyone.
Bet all 3 will be really upset if they stumble across this thread.

I hope they don't lose count.

I find Stephen Hawkins voice equally annoying.

Used to be the best show... They only reviewed 2/3 cars on last episode! Recently they have been reviewing less and less and staging stupid across country races/tasks films. Converting a car to a train?

I thought it was a car show?

The less reviews and more staging the better. It's great entertainment. The "specials" where they drive through the Andes or such are great to watch and it doesn't matter if they've been assisted along the way. If I wanted to learn about different car models I can't afford to buy, I'd read a book.
I agree with the OP about the way they talk on there now, you could understand it if just one of them spoke like it (Clarkson done it first) but the others copied him and they just sound so stupid,

Clarkson's presentation wasn't always the same though...
