And while some applicants seem to genuinely want the job, others seem to be taking the process less seriously - with one woman saying she would be better than Jeremy Clarkson because she wouldn't 'punch people in the face', while another petrolhead (Carl, top right) professing his love for urinating on cars. Another hopeful, Alex Manners (main picture), says Chris Evans (inset, centre) will not find anyone 'funner, quirkier or more colourful' than he is as he appears wearing a green blazer, polka dot shirt and yellow chinos. In another call-back to Clarkson's controversial career, a YouTube user called The Dabby Peace Show (bottom right) starts his video by correcting his camera's angle because it has 'a slope on it'.
