An American version, with Mark Labbett (promoted as "[[RedBaron The Beast]]" as opposed to his real name) as the single Chaser and Brooke Burns hosting was picked up by GSN. The rules were changed slightly, with only three people per team, a $5,000 per question cashbuilder, occasional six-figure "Super Offers"[[note]](even higher than the increased offer, but the player had only a one-step head start and needed ''seven'' correct answers to bank the money)[[/note]], and a Live StudioAudience. It was cancelled two episodes into its fifth season, with the network claiming that it was too expensive to continue producing. It's also seen in Britain on the Challenge channel, where it's billed as ''The Chase USA''. The third and fourth seasons are available for streaming on {{Netflix}}.

Added DiffLines:

** Note that sometimes, this can be inverted as the player may be encouraged to take the low or even negative offer if they feel like the extra body will help giving them another space ahead of the Chaser in the final chase and they can afford to take the low/negative offer.

Added DiffLines:

* MixedMetaphor: The opening spiel includes the line "There's just one thing standing in their way: the Chaser". Well are they standing in their way, or chasing them?

** The higher offer is higher for a reason. Questions are much harder, and many contestants trip up on these questions. And the Chaser is two steps behind you to start off. Contestants rarely survive the higher offer Personal Chase. The U.S. version took this UpToEleven and added a rare SUPER offer on a few occasions, which was usually at least double the high offer and could run to six figures. However, the player started out only one step ahead of the Chaser and needed seven correct answers to bank the money. Throughout the show's run, nobody accepted the challenge of the Super offer.

* TheCastShowOff: The Chasers like to show off their trivia knowledge, and Mark even more than the others. At the end of the head-to-head round, the Chaser would occasionally give details about how and why the answer is correct.

In the more usual display of this trope, Shaun will occasionally break into song.

* {{Corpsing}}: Happens every now and then, and the producers always ThrowItIn for comedic value. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ctVGRgNt0e8 Bradley's face]] is a joy to behold, especially funny as the mirth spreads to even the Chaser!
