“The Chase” on ABC Review by Eva 1/9/2021
I was very excited when I saw the commercial for the game show The Chase because I am a big fan of the previous version of the show which still airs in reruns on the Game Show Network (GSN) and is also streaming on Hulu.
Three contestants take on a trivia genius who is The Chaser. One at a time each contestant builds up cash in the cash builder round. Once the cash builder round is complete, then the contestant takes on the Chaser. The Chaser offers the contestant a low offer for the contestant to start the Chase closer to the bank or the contestant could start the Chase in the middle of the board and take the money they earned toward the bank or if he takes the chasers high offer the contestant risks giving the Chaser an easier way to catch them. The contestant and the Chaser answer trivia questions head to head and if the contestant gets the question right they take their money closer to the bank. If the Chaser also gets the question right he also moves down the board. If the contestant is caught by the Chaser the contestant is eliminated from the game and he loses his money. The other two contestants continue the game and whichever contestants beat the Chaser they bank their money and go to the Final Chase where they take on the Chaser one more time for the chance to take home the money in the bank.
This new version of the game is hosted by Sarah Haines and the Chasers are Jeopardy! champions Ken Jennings, James Holzhauer, and Brad Rutter I enjoyed the show very much, but I would have enjoyed it more if the show had a better host because Sarah Haines is too serious to host a game show. She doesn’t appear to care if the contestants win or not because she doesn’t cheer them on or support them. I hope that in future episodes she loosens up and starts to be more supportive of the contestants. I advise you to watch the previous version of The Chase and you will notice the difference between the two shows. I give this show 4 out of 5 stars
