    Dodge is taking applications on January 20, 2022, to hire a "Chief Donut Maker," with a deadline of February 28, 2022. Applicants will need to show, in a short video (maximum length of two minutes), that they embody the spirit of the founding Dodge Brothers. Aspiring donut makers can go to www.DodgeGarage.com/chief-donut-maker to apply and to view all the rules and regulations.

    Submission videos will be reviewed and evaluated by a Dodge panel that includes champion wrestler Bill Goldberg. Then ten finalists will ultimately compete for the title through a series of elimination rounds, ultimately whittling the candidates down to the final two. More details will be announced in the weeks to come.

    The winner will receive a $150K paycheck to represent Dodge and go on the auto adventure of a lifetime, from Radford Racing School to Roadkill Nights to driving their own SRT Hellcat Challenger.

    Over 173,500 applications were received by Dodge. Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis said, "it wasn’t easy, but we’ve selected our top 10 candidates for the Dodge brand’s Chief Donut Maker position...now the rubber will literally hit the road, as we take our finalists to Radford Racing School to begin the four-week competition that will ultimately determine our final two candidates, with our Chief Donut Maker to be named on HEMI Day, April 26th.”

    In addition to the racing school, the finalists (6 men and four women) will have face-to-face interviews (a/k/a, interrogations) with Bill Goldberg. His level of intensity for the Brotherhood of Muscle will ensure only the best of the best move forward.

    Here are the individual submissions of the finalists as well as a compilation. Interesting to see the various approaches they took to stand out in their videos.

    Found this on Amazon Prime:

    Join Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May as they travel across the globe on their Grand Tour. A show about adventure, excitement and friendship… as long as you accept that the people you call friends are also the ones you find extremely annoying

    Whilst on their gentlemans tour of Italy the guys approach a tunnel... when Richard decides to open up his Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat

    Richard Hammond, unlike his European car-loving buddies of Top Gear, likes muscle cars, especially the Challenger. Check out this video from 2009. Start at the 4:17 minute mark.
