In the words of Clarkson, "And on that terrible disappointment..."

Man, that was a boring way to end the season. Nice idea, but the whole thing was just very repetitive & most of the humour fell completely flat.

Felt slightly uncomfortable at the start with all the pity and mention of poor people, but once they started moving it was ok, if slightly repetitive. Some good moments, but they really only had two jokes.

Bolivia trip is still to be surpassed imo.

Might be just me but I found this final episode to leave a bad taste in the mouth. Not sure I liked the idea of wasting food and essentially killing animals for a few laughs in a country with extreme poverty.

Don't think I watched any of season 2, what was the end of season trial that was so bad?

They went to poverty stricken Mozambique. I switched off after 15 mins as it was just awful

"In 'Feed the World', the three set off with the intent of 'saving the world' by coming up with practical, automotive-based solutions to the problem of world hunger. The episodic challenge, then, becomes one of transporting fish from Mozambique’s capital city of Maputo to the village of Bingo some 200 miles away."

This review didn't think it was funny.
https://screenrant.com/grand-tour-se...ew-mozambique/

"Essentially, it’s rich white people mocking rich white people with the issue of world hunger caught in the middle. Is that funny? Well,*no, not really.
It’s difficult, then, to discern what the point is of watching three grown men botch a charity mission, presumably for the purpose of making fun of celebrities, and, in arguably greater measure, themselves."
