  • Benjamin Scarbro

    WOO! Going to the top!

  • Benjamin Scarbro

    Some Notes:
    1.) I could not find a picture of Fedor ANYWHERE on the internet.
    B.) Half of the pictures of Chris are incredibly hard to photoshop
    III.) I thought about including Neil and Adam but they would have just ruined everything.
    Fourth.) If I included Georgia I would have had to include the ferrets.. and then Ovie the Bulldog and then Caps Hill…

    You all have to many friends.

  • All we know about Fedor is that he looks like Russian Beiber. I think Ian is the only one who has seen his true face.

    I have an artistic rendering. hahaha

  • here is Fedor

  • nicoley-poley

    !!!!!!!!!! MUCH EXCITE

  • Benjamin Scarbro

    I “googled” Fedor Fedin… and I got pictures of Bieber and Kuznetsov. Seemed accurate.

  • William

    Congrats guy!

  • holtbysaidno

    Congrats! Looking forward to the coverage!

  • Steve Killmon

    “Some say that he has a face like Justin Bieber, and that he has a sixth sense for impending meteor strikes…all we know is that he’s not The Stig; he’s The Stig’s RUSSIAN COUSIN!”

  • Steve Killmon

    If I were at my computer and not on my phone, there’d be a hammer and sickle on his helmet.

  • Jonathan Garcia

    Hats off to you dudes and lady dudes. Much deserved.

  • Fedor

    I don’t look anything close to either, to be honest. I just happen to be of the exact same age (to week) as Bieber, thus all the puns.

  • Alex Repp

    Make MOAR money!! Congrats on the payday

  • Red

    Aww, our little Russian Machine is all grown up and hosting its own segment on TV. This is a proud moment. Sob.

  • Priscilla Villanueva

    I can’t wait. It’s going to be so fun, i just know it!!!!

  • Am I making a snow angel? Suck it, Ian!

  • It’s still surreal to me too. I’ll try not to do too terribly. 😀

  • Red

    If you guys can sneak in the Brower Rangers in there somewhere, that would be rad. Those guys deserve some air time.

  • Roman Z.

    Disco dance to celebrate?

  • David Murray

    You guys deserve every bit of recognition and promotion that you get, and then some. You are my favorite thing on the web!! CONGRATS

  • Capslass

    Congrats. I can always say I knew you when (or my daughter and Oksana did). : )

  • Fedor

    I like The Stig comparison a lot more than Justin Bieber comparison. I can even say I’m flattered.

  • yv

    That’s a milestone! I suspect that after such meteoric rise, RMNB will soon start charging their viewers/readers as other media outlets (see wapo, etc.) to compensate their future live coverages from international events!?)).

  • Matt Root

    Congrats guys! *puts on hipster glasses* I knew RMNB before they were on CRL.

    Seriously though, excited for you all.

  • “He’s not The Stig — but he is The Stig’s Riley Barber-loving cousin!”

  • Oh wait, this joke has already been made. Carry on.
