It's really irrelevant why they used them. He was a bad choice. Julia Bradbury, meanwhile, did a great job. And did you notice that she did all the voice-overs for the recap series?

And to be completely anal, Richard hadn't worn his beads as a necklace for a good year before PEL was filmed so I'm not sure Whitehead even saw PEL but why let reality get in the way of a good (?) joke at someone's expense?
Because either Richard won't let them, or someone is purposely doing it to him at TG and he's letting them do it, probably for the money. He has a family to feed, just like Moja's mom.
I watched Crash Course S2 ep 1 tonight (and pretty damn good it was too) and wondered again why we don't get to see that Richard on Top Gear very often these days.
