Tonight, Mark Labbett has his hands full against a World Bank employee, a broadcast journalism major, and a Mensa member. The Chase... IS ON!

Tonight's trio of runners are...

Ashburn, VA
Mensa member
Christian Carrion
West Haven, CT
broadcast journalism student at Southern Connecticut State
on his fourth game show
Washington, DC
former World Bank employee
holds a masters from Johns Hopkins

The game is played in three rounds, and each runner will play all the first two. Round 1 is the Cash Builder Round. Brooke will ask each Runner rapid fire questions for one minute worth $5000 each. The money they win in this round is put on an eight-space game board for Round 2, the Chase Round. The Runner can stay where they are, but if they step one space away from the Chaser, they will play for a lesser amount, but will have less questions to answer. If they take one step TOWARDS the Chaser, they will play for bigger money, but will have to answer more questions correctly. Compounding that, if the Chaser answers a question correctly, HE will move one step down on the board. If a Runner gets caught before he or she banks the money, they - AND THE MONEY - are out of the game. But if they bank the cash, they will move on to the Final Chase, where the team will compete against the Beast one more time for an equal share of the bank.

First up, we have AARON, who has a photographic memory. He just bought a church in Maryland, and he's hoping to renovate it as a house.

CASH BUILDER: 1 out of 10 for $5000.

 BANK          $5000      

If Aaron wants to move one step towards the bank and take the easy way to the cash, Mark will offer... "A pitiful $1000." If he wants to play hardball and step up to the Beast, he plays for... $20,000.

Aaron.. decides to take the chicken offer. For $1000.... THE CHASE... IS ON!

Christian wants to get a ring.

CASH BUILDER: 5 out of 11 for $25,000. That will get a large living room. If he wants a large bedroom, the Beast will offer him $10,000. If he wants the room, the ring, and the people's respect, the Beast will offer him $60,000.

All three of our Runners are through to the Final Chase with $63,000 in the kitty. Which means that if they do this right, each one could win $21,000. But like they say, it's only half over, now the real business begins.


The Runners will get rapid-fire questions for 2 minutes. For each correct response they buzz in with, they will move one step ahead of the Beast. There are three people playing this Final Chase, so they will begin with an automatic three step head-start.

For $63,000, the Final Chase... IS ON!

Aaron: 1 for 1
Christian: 6 for 15
Moly: 0 for 3

They pick up seven for a total of 10 steps on the Beast. "Well played, Christian." Burn.

But is it enough? Mark will now have 2 minutes to answer as many questions as HE can. Every correct answer puts him one step closer to the Runners. If he answers a question INCORRECTLY, the clock stops and the question is thrown to the Runners. If they answer the question correctly, they will push the Beast back ONE step. If Mark catches the Runners before two minutes is out, then the Final Chase is over, and the Runners leave with nothing. If Mark fails to catch the Runners in time, then the Runners will get an equal share of $63,000, $21,000 a piece!

It's time for the FINAL CHASE!

Beast: STOPPED at 0 (1:54). The Beast has nothing, so if the Runners get this right, they will add a step.

- During his Oscar acceptance speech, what director exclaimed, "I'm the king of the world!"? Christian says James Cameron... And they're up to 11.

Beast: STOPPED at 5 (1:21)

- How many prongs on a typical oyster fork? Three... IS RIGHT! Beast is pushed back to 4.

Beast: STOPPED at 8 (0:56)

- Who wrote the semi-autobiographical play "After the Fall"? The team... Arthur Miller... RIGHT! The Beast is back to 7 with 56 to go...

Beast: STOPPED at 7 (0:52)

- What jewelry store trademarked its turquoise blue boxes? Christian thinks it's Tiffany. Tiffany & Co. is right for a pushback to 6. Five to catch, 52 on the clock.

Beast: CAUGHT AT 11 (0:19)

So unfortunately for Christian, the team leaves with nothing.

So far, Mark Labbett is 2 for 3 in America. But how will he fare against his next opponents? Find out next time as we commence once again... the Chase.
