Tuesday, August 6, 2013: The Chase

by Ariel Kay August 6, 2013 6:00 am

In the latest game show imported from England, competitors must test their trivia knowledge against a terrifying 6'6" World Quizzing Champion known as "The Beast." I'm assuming that if you lose, he gets to eat you.

On The Chase, four contestants work together to try and stump The Beast. Each must first do battle alone, trying to answer as many questions as possible in a short amount of time to accumulate cash. Once they've completed this first round, they then compete against The Beast (real name: Mark Labbett), going through a series of multiple choice questions. If The Beast gets more questions right than the contestant, that person is out of the game. In the final round, all remaining competitors band together to answer a series of questions. Then, The Beast is asked a different series. If he gets more right than the contestants, they lose everything.

The show is hosted by former Baywatch babe and GSN staple Brooke Burns. I'm sure Brook is great and all, but this show sounds so stressful that I will probably only be able to watch it if Alex Trebek and his dulcet tones are there guiding me through. Seriously, this "game" sounds more intimidating than the SATs.

The Chase kicks off its first season at 9 PM on GSN, opposite the premiere of The Legend of Shelby the Swamp Man (WTF could that show possibly be) on The History Channel. Then at 10 is the summer premiere of Lifetime's Double Divas.
