The second season motoring television series for BBC America i.e. Top Gear America premiered on Jan. 29, 2021. Based on the BBC series of the same name, the season’s production was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Anyway, the reboot of the series, hosted by actors Dax Shepard, Rob Corddry, and English automotive journalist Jethro Bovingdon, managed to pull in even more audience than its 2017’s season did.
Meanwhile, people have been intrigued by Jethro, the new Top Gear America co-host. So, below is a Jethro Bovingdon Wikipedia, concerning all that.
Jethro Bovingdon Age
Jethro Bovingdon reached the age of 43 in 2020 as he celebrated his birthday on 14th December. He was born in the year of 1977.
His Family, Hometown
Born and brought up in Northampton, England, Jethro shares a very good bonding with his family. Sometimes, on his social media sharing, he mentions his parents and brother.
Also, it seems he got his undying love for cars from his father whom he observed working as a mechanic growing. Even today, Jethro is amazed by his dad’s automobile engineering skills.
When Jethro was, his dad had a ’72 Citroën D Super. So the first car he ever went in, on the way back from the hospital, was a white D Super.
Jethro says, his father owns an SM now among others. While his mother, he tweeted, had a series of rusty Toledos/Dolomites when he was a kid.
About Jethro’s brother Toby Bovingdon— he is a student/instructor at East West Martial Arts, now living in Northampton, Northamptonshire, in the United Kingdom. He also studied Kicking at East West Martial Arts dojo. Like Jethro and their dad, Toby is also super passionate about his cars.

On his Instagram page which is a typical exhibition site for his collection of most exotic new cars, Jethro entertained more than 32.5k car enthusiasts. Additionally, Jethro, who also has this non-motoring interest in collecting sunglasses, had 28.3K followers on Twitter. As of May 9, 2021, he also held a profile on Facebook.
Jethro Bovingdon Net Worth
Jethro is an accomplished motoring journalist and road tester. He started his career as the two at evo (British automobile sports, performance, and premium car magazine brand) in May 2001.
Over time, he established himself as one of the most professional and sideways writers in the business.
Besides, Jethro is also a skillful racer with a never-ending passion for cars and driving them. He drove a works BMW in the Nürburgring 24 Hours in 2014 setting one of the fastest laps ever around Blyton Park in a McLaren 12C Can-Am.
One of the first cars, he ever drove was a project car for a magazine and it was an E36 BMW M3 GT.
Currently, Jethro Bovingdon is the owner of Porsche 996 and a modified BMW 3-series among many others. And, his net worth was estimated to be above $1 million (before May in 2021).
So, Top Gear America in early 2021 added one more job title to his career. Anyway, he hinted hosting the show meant less of a job and “a huge amount of fun.”
He also spilled that the TV credit was never necessary to his or his co-stars’ career.
“I think we just wanted to do it, [and] be mindful of what’s come before in terms of how the sort-of irreverent style of the show is…”
Also, in an exclusive with Distractify, Jethro and Rob Corddry revealed their driving on the show is “very very real”.
Jethro Bovingdon Wife: Is He Married?
Now that Jethro Bovingdon is a part of a reality television show one can tell with almost certainty that he enjoys media attention and limelight. Be that as it may, he seldom puts on personal affairs on display, not even on his social media. (Except for a time in June 2013, where he tweeted, “That’s not how my wife sees it, funnily enough”, replying to certain comments made by another Brit automotive journalist, Chris Harris.)
So, currently, his audiences, curious about his life off the screen, were not even aware if Jethro is married or not.
Jethro never particularly mentioned his wife or girlfriend. He, however, talked about his two children, now and then. In an Instagram post, in late-2019, he wrote how his son and daughter (age, below 10), routinely told him, he has “the most boring job in the world.” “Yes, they’re in for a shock when they grow up.”, he added teasingly.
Anyway, we also learned his kids are excited to go for a ride in his cars. In fact, some days there is just lots of begging for a ride before the dad gives in to the whims of the young ones.
