He’s generally called a presenter on popular BBC show Top-gear, jointly with his colleagues Richard Hammond and James May. His occasionally sarcastic and funny fashion of writing and presenting has not only gained a national recognition to him, but also led to criticism from numerous pressure groups, media and even politicians. Even though Top-gear is offered by three guys, Jeremy is widely regarded as the genuine cause of the show’s recognition. Jeremy Clarkson net-worth is now estimated at $4.5 million.
While his dad worked for a traveling salesman, his mom was a teacher. Everything changed when Edward and Shirley began selling stuffed toys. This company eventually permitted his parents to pay the costs and Jeremy was used in the esteemed Repton School. Because of his mom’s horror, Clarkson shortly got kicked out. Dropping the opportunity to obtain higher education didn’t destroy his life, as-is convincingly demonstrated by the present Jeremy Clarkson net-worth.
Jeremy Clarkson net-worth – 4.5 Million dollars
After dropping out-of school Jeremy began working on his parents company. In no time he got a little position for a journalist in the neighborhood paper and started composing for Rochalde Observer, the Lincolnshire Life and Wolverhampton Express and Star. Jeremy Clarkson net-worth began to develop in mid-1980s, when he started a Motoring Press Agency. Eventually this small bureau developed into a favorite publication entitled Clarkson and Performance-car was agreed to create a regular column for the automotive magazine Top-gear. Jeremy’s career took off in early 2000s, when TELEVISION show Top-gear was started in a fresh format.
What began as a low-budget TELEVISION job, soon turned into the most famous program on BBC, rebroadcasted all around the globe. The wages for presenting this show accounts for the part of Jeremy Clarkson net-worth. One other significant generator of his own fortune is his novels, writings and columns. Based on some media sources, in 2007 only he earned almost three million pounds. His colleague James and the exact same year Jeremy became the very first guy to get to the North Pole in an automobile and won the Special Recognition Award because of his work with tv.

The phrase "And on that bombshell..." (usually used at the end of Top Gear episodes).
His style of delivery when presenting, involving dramatic pauses and placing emphasis on the last few words in a sentence eg. "...in the world."
I'd hate to see the day when a really bad bug like Ebola gets on a plane.
I read in the papers how much I'm earning and fall about laughing because I'm sure it's not that much, otherwise I'd have an enormous boat. I'm literally not the slightest bit interested in money. I just don't pay any attention to money, it's rather vulgar.
The problem is that television executives have got it into their heads that if one presenter on a show is a blonde-haired, blue-eyed heterosexual boy, the other must be a either black gay or a lesbian. Chalk and cheese, they reckon, works. But here we have Top Gear (2002) setting new records after six years using cheese and cheese. It confuses them.
We only need look at Baroness Thatcher (Margaret Thatcher) to know what women can be like when they want to get in front.
Sure it's quiet, for a diesel. But that's like being well-behaved... for a murderer.
Much more of a hoot to drive than you might imagine. Think of it, if you like, as a librarian with a G-string under the tweed. I do, and it helps.
We all know that small cars are good for us. But so is cod liver oil. And jogging. I want to drive around in a Terminator, not the heroine in an EM Forster novel.
The only person who ever looked good in the back of a four-seater convertible is Adolf Hitler.

"Only last week I was at my children's sports day and as I lay in the long grass by the river drinking pink champagne and chatting with other media parents, I remember thinking, 'God, I love being middle class'." (Sunday Times 24 July 2005)
Smokers pay £19,000 a minute to the Exchequer, and that's enough to pay for the whole police force. Or to put it another way, for every £1 we cost the National Health Service, we give it £3.60. Please don't encourage the state to dictate how I live my life.
