Here's some better trailers for 'Super Jahti' the Finnish version of Beat the Chasers starting later this week.

Seems strange without the big 'C' but for obvious reasons.





And here's the opening titles of the Netherlands 'Beat The Champions' - which don't look great to be honest compared to the UK version.

I imagine they'll want to make a decision pretty quickly and start getting new episodes in the bag. Since COVID and Anne and Mark have been unable to get out there they've been airing repeats on Thursdays and Fridays but with a change of host I doubt they'd want to air old repeats. Maybe a good opportunity to have a slight refresh, do some set updates and make Tiger Mum a permanent Chaser.

It is somewhat disrespectful if they still seem to consider her a "guest Chaser" considering she's now been there two years and IMO was one of the stand outs on Beat the Chasers.

Unless there's a golden handcuffs contract in place with Nine, I could see Karl Stefanovic from Today doing this. He's got the mentality of a 6 year old but still manages to pull it together somehow.

I'm not sure Karl Stefanovic is incredibly popular with Aussies and reaction on Twitter suggests Rove McManus, who's been tipped for the job, isn't the most popular choice either.

I agree they really should make her permanent, especially since Anne and Mark can't get there and how well she performed on BTC. It might be good to give the show a boost when launching a new presenter. I think it'd be a good opportunity to do some tweaks and set updates.

I've watched some of Beat The Champions and it's actually quite good, I'm suprised at how well they captured the feeling BTC but without the established cast. Some of the offers have been a bit low compared to ours (like €30k for 5 'champions') and I expect Super-Jahti may be the same.

Karl is tied to Nine. People don't host shows across rival commercial networks in Australia, or even really guest on them. They're incredibly petty.

In terms of on screen talent, Australia has very slim pickings. Just shows how lucky we are over here.

Just spotted this on Twitter. 7 have been airing new episodes of The Chase Australia Mon-Wed since COVID but seems like they're airing new episodes Thursday and Friday too to try and rush out AOK's episodes. A few places online thought they had enough to last until the summer but they're obviously going to need to turn around new episodes quite quickly.

Why are there only three Chasers on that version? The format requires at least four.

Not really - they can do offers for 1, 2 or 3 Chasers.

I'm not sure how they'll do offers for 3. Surely beating one chaser with 40 seconds will be quite easy as its more of a head to head and the chaser won't have any backup. There's obviously a reason that it was dropped from the pilot of our version when the made the first series. I wonder if they could maybe make the cash builder the middle offer for 2 chasers?

It's only odd because we're used to 3. Watch this version first and it would seem odd contestants on our show don't get the chance to play one Chaser.

I don't see a problem with having a one-on-one (player vs Chaser) finale.

I don't think the number of Chasers you take on in the final round makes any massive difference in the grand scheme of things, rather the amount of time you have which makes or breaks you.

Bear in mind, all five (or six if you include Darragh despite him having not (yet) appeared on Beat The Chasers) of the Chasers are individually incredibly knowledgeable about a huge array of topics. Granted, there are bound to be some weak points for each of them, but by and large, if you are playing against a Chaser one-on-one, the likelihood is, the Chaser will get most questions right and you'll have to do well to beat them.

When there are multiple Chasers playing on a team together, you'll quite often see more than one of them rushing to the buzzer at once, and the team as a whole ending up getting the question wrong because while Mark, Anne, and Paul may know the answer for certain, Shaun happened to buzz fractionally earlier than the others and guessed wrong. Sometimes, too many cooks spoil the broth.

As such, I don't think taking on all five Chasers at once is quite as big a leap in difficulty compared to taking on one or two of them as it's made out to be on the programme, and I wouldn't consider a one-on-one player vs Chaser final to be an unsuitably easy finale by any means.
