The Chase with Mark Labett as "The Beast"

For many years I have been a big fan of quiz shows with Jeopardy as my favorite.  By accident, I discovered The Chase featuring Mark Labett and Brooke Burns on 3 PM on the Game Show Network.  Below is a description of the show that I found on its website:

In the game, a team of three contestants takes part in a fast-paced quiz in an attempt to earn as much money as possible by answering a series of questions in 60 seconds. Any money earned goes into a team bank that can be won by any team members remaining at the end of the show. Competing against the team is a quiz genius known as the Beast. His role is to catch contestants by answering more questions than they, so they cannot bank money. In the final round, the contestants who have survived the initial chase battle the Beast for the entire amount that has been banked. But beating the Beast won't be easy. The trivia veteran has degrees from Oxford, Exeter and Glamorgan universities.

I must say that "The Beast" really knows his trivia.  The best part of the show is that it is very fast paced with the minimal small talk by the contestants and the host.  I even got the app for the show so that I can play it on my phone.  I found a Youtube Video where he appeared on the British version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire in 2006.

I would love to see him go against Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter on Jeopardy
