And yet the beast is the only one who applauds those who beat him.

Really? The beast a two hat?

I've seen him on another programme "out of character" (Who Wants to be a Millionaire I think) and he was OK

Not a fan. Paul and The Dark Destroyer are my faves.

Time they had a makeover and gave the contestants what they won in their own round against the the chaser.There would be no negative takers then.

But that's the idea of the game, to work as a team. If they only got what they earned, it would be like too many other quiz shows.

The prize never really reflects the game imo. There’s too much work to do to win a moderate prize in terms of other gameshows.

I've always thought The Chase is one of the more generous shows. Definitely more so than any BBC show anyway. I don't mind Pointless but the jackpot is usually 'only' a couple of grand.

Best quiz show on tele and there are some good ones.
Not sure Frank for those who could have taken the lower offer, been honourable to take through the small amount they earned then starred in the Final chase.
Best just to treat the negative cowards with the contempt they deserve.
Wonder if the new one is because of Paul deteriorating health

I've seen many contestants take away the 10,000 pounds end of each game prize for themselves on the quiz show 'Impossible'. Not a bad little earner and each contestant gets to come back every day in the week

I applied for "Impossible" and when they rang me to say it was being recorded in the 1st 2 weeks of November 2019 (this current series) I had to turn it down because we were booked on a cruise to the Canaries on the dates they quoted me 😒 ... if there is another series I am hoping to be aaked on as a contestant.... but hey ho if not no worries 🙂

always been that way as the prizes on the bbc are paid for by the licence fee and the other channels from advertisements.

Good luck Bosscat, think I remember you saying you were on the Chase. You did well so I'm sure you would have a decent chance of the big prize.
Next time you watch it check out how the camera angles make the host seem 2 foot taller than the contestants when they come down. Can't remember his name but he has grown on me

They would still be working as a team to bring the chaser down Frank,but only winning the money they chose to play for.

Yeah to be honest the possibility is there to win a big amount. If you back yourself to do it alone you could come away with £40,000. I’ve seem some though where players get through to the final and don’t answer one question which seems a bit wrong.

Why don’t you just host your own eh? Bosscats Cruise Plunge. Where you get a question wrong, over board you go.

You have obviously never watched Pointless. I think you win a tenner but if you don't, they add another pound next time!

Starting to get a bit cheesed off with the number of times the answer is in the question. It goes both ways but the chaser doesn’t have to wait for them to say his name.

Credit for going high Bosscat, it's easy to opt for the middle, or even lower amount, a lot of luck is involved, as with any quiz, if you get subjects you know your laughing, but equally if you don't your crying, I've played at home often, and if movie, politics and sport questions are forthcoming, I usually do ok, but if recent pop music or science appears then I generally struggle, so there's an element of lottery to whether you win or not, and although you'd think having the answer in front of you, that doesn't always help as much as you may imagine.

Well done on winning 15 to 1, that's one of the harder shows on telly. I haven't seen it for years, but I remember some of the questions being stinkers on there.

I never knew the Beast had split from his wife. Apparently it became an open relationship and she's moved on to somebody else.

I went on the show and we beat The Beast. He did applaud when the cameras were on, definitely hates losing though and whacked the desk in front of him and stormed off pretty sharpish.
