I find it very scripted. While there is some scripted chat in the original, it flows better.

Watching The Chase just now and two things struck me about The Beast.
He seems to have a slight shake in his head.
He got a question wrong and said “I can see it, but cannot remember what it is”. It’s the second time that I’ve heard him say that in recent weeks.

Much harder to play along. In the original format you could see how many questions you'd have got correct in the cash builder and if you'd have got through at the table. With Beat The Chasers it's not possible to play from home. Still, I wish I could apply to any version of The Chase and go on the show!

In the head to head I think you have to pick one side to play with, usually the contestant. You couldn't keep up with answering or trying to answer both sides.

I dont mind Beat the Chasers but my father, who controls the remote doesn't like it at all.

But yeah, same as you, I'd love to go on it. I've got my strategy mapped out and everything.

No, I'm not a nerd at all...

Gone right off the Chase in general.

Must be nearing cancellation at this stage.

The "big mean chaser" shtick is boring now when they're so often very complimentary and happy for the winning contestants.


Beat the Chasers is worse again. How can the Chasers be the one that sets the time allowed? Sure what's to stop them saying they want 50 seconds for every level? It's probably a disadvantage to do good in the cash builder too because then you get less time for the higher offer.

With a regular audience of three to five million, The Chase is one of ITV's most successful daytime shows ever. The show has been nominated six times at the National Television Awards, winning in 2016, 2017 and 2019.

Yeah, its definitely on the verge of being cancelled.

I'd say it's the producers that decide the time for each option.

Same as the money offer in the normal game.


No way are the chasers let loose with those decisions!

Hard to judge how much leeway, if any they have. The Beast tends to make a poor offer generally.

But then if they rise him a bit he makes "THE BIGGEST OFFER WE'VE EVER MADE". He, in particular, would completely lose the run of himself if let loose I reckon!

He is fiercely competitive. The road trip taken by Ann, The Dark Destroyer and The Beast was very illuminating and interesting.

Good article. Anne has had to fight many demons along the way. Also interesting that Mark Labbett was instrumental in her getting going.

Family member has met Anne on the quiz circuit, and says she's very nice and approachable.

Just read the art, lovely piece of journalism.
