ABC’s The Chase is a new game show airing Thursday evenings at 9PM EST and is hosted by Sara Haines, who you might recognize as a co-host on The View. The Chase is a heart-racing quiz show where three competitors must pit their wits and face off against the Chaser, a ruthless quiz genius determined to stop them from winning cash prizes. The Chasers are some serious trivia buffs including: James Holzhauer, Brad Rutter and Ken Jennings, who you may recognize from Jeopardy! Last week I was able to attend a round table with host Sara Haines and get all the behind the scenes details. Check it out!
