Fat Stig, officially called “Stig’s American Cousin” was yet another example of a cameo appearance by other Stigs on Top Gear.
Series 9 Episode 3 of Top Gear was set in the United States, with the presenters buying American cars and driving them across four states whilst on holiday.
One of the challenges set for the presenters was for the cars to set a lap time around a racetrack, for which “the Stig’s American cousin” was introduced. This Stig was nicknamed “Big Stig” by the presenters due to his obese appearance and was noted by Jeremy Clarkson to have a “very relaxed driving style”.
Fat Stig even made “Captain Slow” (James May) look fast!
