British Game Show hosted by Bradley Walsh. A team of four players, never having met before, have the chance to take home thousands of pounds. There's only one thing standing in their way; the Chaser. The chase is on.For the first round, each team member (in turn) builds up cash by answering quick fire trivia questions on a one minute clock. For each correct answer, the player earns £1,000. Then they must take it to the table, where they encounter the Chaser for the first time. Starting three steps ahead of the Chaser, they can take a free step toward home for a reduction in the prize money, or take a step towards the Chaser for an improved prize.Then both Chaser and contestant answer multiple-choice trivia questions. If either gets it right, they move a step down the table. The contestant attempts to get home (in which case that money goes into the prize fund), while the Chaser tries to reach the contestant (in which case that player is removed from the game, along with their money).In the final round, any team members that have survived their individual chases take part in the Final Chase. On the buzzer, and against a two-minute clock, the team must set as high a mark as they can (gaining an extra step for each member of the team that survived). After they set the mark, the Chaser has the same two minutes to catch the team. If the Chaser gets a question wrong, the team has a chance to move him/her back a space by answering it correctly themselves. If the team is caught, they leave with nothing; otherwise, the surviving team members split the entire prize.The Chasers are Mark Labbett, Anne Hegerty, Shaun Wallace, and Paul Sinha.An American adaption, with Mark Labbett (promoted as "The Beast" as opposed to his real name) as chaser and Brooke Burns hosting has been picked up by GSN. Changes are limited to a 3 man team, a $5,000 a question cashbuilder, and a Live Studio Audience. A second series has been commissioned.Not to be confused with SyFy's Cha$e.
