The Grand Tour  Will Use Twitter to Gauge its Popularity
  • The Grand Tour will be judged through Twitter
 

The Producer of Grand Tour just announced that show’s popularity will be gauged through the tweets about it on Twitter

Andy Wilman of The Grand Tour spoke to BBS Radio today in which he shed some light on the upcoming season of motor reality show. He didn’t give any fixed number of viewers and also said that even Amazon didn’t deliver a clear cut number of viewers who see the series.

When he was asked about the popularity of show and whether they thought that people liked it or not, he replied by saying that they would consider Twitter on that.

He told BBC Radio 4's Today programme that his team will look on the twitter trends to see for the popularity of The Grand Tour. He said that we will use Twitter as the source to see if the season becomes popular among people or not and also in order to know that how many people are viewing it. 

The Grand Tour is supposed to launch this Friday which will star Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May. This is going to be a first show by these three stars after leaving the BBC’s Top Gear last year. 

A few weeks back it was rumored that Amazon was producing a single episode of The Grand Tour with a budget of 4 million pounds.

When this question was asked from Wilman, he replied by saying that this figure was a lie. He said that he would not disclose the amount that is spent on shooting a single episode but 4 million pounds is just not it and way above the real budget. 

When it was asked if the budget for a single episode is higher than 1 million pounds which was spent on Top Gear’s single episode, he replied by saying that it was between 1 million to 4 million pounds.
