Karl Pilkington Finds Out He's the 'Idiot Abroad' (VIDEO)

Ricky Gervais and longtime friend Stephen Merchant sent their uncultured colleague, Karl Pilkington to visit the 7 Wonders of the World in the eight-part series 'An Idiot Abroad' (Saturdays, 10PM ET on Science Channel). Pilkington has visited the Great Wall of China, the Taj Mahal and the Great Pyramids, among other sites, and experienced a host of offbeat adventures. In Saturday's episode (the last of the series), he finally arrived home, but got some troubling news from Gervais.

Apparently, Gervais had some difficulty (uh-huh) selling the proposed title 'Karl Pilkington's Seven Wonders,' and came up with a title that everyone agreed upon. "I want to run it by you," Gervais said." 'An Idiot Abroad'."

Pilkington did a slow burn, telling Gervais that wasn't what they had talked about.

"Yeah, but they were saying, you know, 'Who's Karl Pilkington.' "

'Well, who's the idiot abroad?' Pilkington inquired.

Karl, come on.
