Episode 3.11: Celebrity Chase
November 11

He has an IQ of 155. He is one of the greatest trivia champions in the world. He stands 6 foot 7, 370 pounds, mostly brain. He's a mathematician and teacher with degrees from Oxford and Exeter. He has single-handedly denied many unfortunate Britons hundreds of thousands of dollars. His name is Mark Labbett. They call him "The Beast", and for good reason. And tonight, he has his eyes set on Hollywood.

GSN's landmark quiz show is back for another round, and tonight, three celebrities are pitting their star power against the Beast's brain power. Will they be able to outsmart Britain's big man?

Seamus Dever

The game is played in three rounds, and each runner will play 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.

Dean, known by many as TV's Superman during the 1990s, is a Princeton-educated former football star.

A special rule change is instituted for this edition of "The Chase". Each Cash Builder round is immediately spotted $5000, which is the player's to keep no matter what.

That money is placed five spaces from the Bank. If you want to take a step toward home and safety, the Chaser will offer you... $20,000. If you dare to take a step toward the Beast, the offer jumps to... double money, $80,000.

The team and the Beast will have 2 minutes to answer a series of rapid-fire questions. The team will have a head-start of however many players make it to the Final Chase. In this case, since both Dean and Seamus are playing, the head-start is two. For each question the team answers correctly, they will move one step ahead of the Chaser. If they can beat the Beast in this final round, each of their charities will receive $50,000!

Dean & Seamus pick question set B, and the Final Chase is on!
