We’ve kept you up to date with VW’s efforts to find a new Jeremy Clarkson – a People’s Reviewer. And now it’s getting close to a conclusion (they’re certainly getting their money’s worth out of this competition!), with the winners of the first 2 heats sorted and the reviewers for the final heats out playing with the VW Tiguan.
Heat 2 seems to have been hard-fought, with the competitors using social media to get votes in. Di and Johnny, two of the most competitive of the Volkswagen Tiguan People’s Reviewers, pulled out all the stops last week, using their social networks of friends and followers to get out the vote. In the end, Johnny claimed the Group 2 crown, pulling out a victory in a back-and-forth race.
Congratulations then to Johnny, whose towing stunt impressed the public. He moves on to the final to face Group 1 victor Eric and the winner of Group 3. But first, we should also give a well-deserved hand to Di. The mum-to-be delivered a mobile disco concept! Patrick too had a clever idea in packing his wife and children into the Tiguan to do some car camping. As an encore, the ageless rocker packed all the kit for his band, “The Mighty Fog,” into the Tiguan and played an impromptu gig.
So now it’s on to the final heat, with Tiguan reviewers Kaela Marshall, a residential childcare worker from the Manchester area, against children’s charity worker Harriet Gore from Lancashire and also against fireman Peter Selous Jones from the Eastbourne area.
So what did this latest lot get up to with the Tiguan? Peter took the Tiguan on a late-night emergency call, which he filmed and posted to YouTube. A few hours later, Peter and his wife drove to the Devon coast, visiting the Pevensey Castle along the way. Kaela recruited a friend to take the Tiguan to the English coast. She hitched up a horse box to the Tiguan and transported “Corrie,” a lovely show horse, to the beach to have some fun. Of course, a trip to the beach means one thing: a dirty car. Kaela had that covered too. She later recruited her girlfriends to come round and give the car a thorough washing. It was the first Tiguan bikini car wash of the competition. Should get some viewers!
Harriet, was busy making the final preparations for her trip to Romania. She is raising money for a children’s charity, Romanian Relief. She took the Tiguan on tour around Lancashire and into North Wales to raise money and awareness for the charity which serves under-privileged children in Romania. While on the way, she visited Caernarfon Castle in North Wales.
This lot don’t seem quite as barking as some of the earlier contestants, and there are some half-decent pictures and reviews coming in. If you want a look jump over to the People’s Reviewer.
