I was only interested in it for Ken's commentary. But there was barely any of it, and none of it was that interesting.[...]
totally agree
OK, thanks. That makes me feel better about missing it.

I can confirm that the Kyle Kahan on The Chase is the same as then Kyle Kahan on College Jeopardy! and WWTBAM.

Miguel Ruiz? / Louis Virtel / Julia (I believe that's the Miguel Ruiz from J! season 27 but I am not positive. Louis was a contestant on both J! and BAM as well, winning $30K on the latter) -- All three made it to the end and split $115,000
Miguel Ruiz won $10,000 on "Best Ever Trivia Show" yesterday.

Not sure where else to post this, but I just recently learned that the Tom Kinne from the first international tournament on Jeopardy is the same Thomas Kinne that is now a Chaser on the German version.

I used to have images of the International Tournament players but I don't anymore, so I can't make the comparison.

You can remove the question mark after Miguel Ruiz's name because we have confirmed it was him in the "Best Ever Trivia Show" thread.

Eric / Stephanie / Jacob (don't recognize any)
Eric Pierce was on Who's Still Standing in 2011. He lost to his opponent on a question about Rooster Cogburn from True Grit.

I wanted to post this earlier, but I forgot his name and which episode he was on. His Chase episode re-ran today.

A new spin-off series has just premiered. It is called "Beat the Chasers". In this show, a single contestant goes up against all five Chasers. First, the contestant answers multiple choice questions until he/she gets one wrong. The contestant then gets an offer to either face two, three, four, or all five of the Chasers. The contestant and the Chasers then answer questions against their own clock. It is exactly like the show "Playing for Time" and also the penultimate round in Richard Osman's "Two Tribes". The contestant's clock will count down on its own, when they answer their question correctly, their clock stops and then the Chasers' clock will count down until they get their question right. If the Chasers run out of time first, the contestant wins the cash.

Just to save some unknown number of people from googling what I just did, it's apparently on ITV network in the UK.

Someone on Reddit posted that James Holzhauer's episode of "The Chase" is rerunning this Friday at 3 PM Eastern, the same day that James wins Match 2 of the GOAT tournament on Jeopardy!
EDIT: My TV Listings say 3 PM Eastern.

Caught both of these episodes this week in the re-runs. If OP comes back to the thread or if an Archivist wishes to update their pages…
Miguel Ruiz / Louis Virtel / Julia (Miguel Ruiz from J! season 27. Louis was a contestant on both J! and BAM as well, winning $30K on the latter) -- All three made it to the end and split $115,000
Here’s Julia.

Chris / Arielle / Jeremy (don't recognize)
Here’s Arielle. Thanks to TJ!F for his archived game threads to help me confirm. This team split an $80,000 pot.

Arianna Haut / Logan / James (Ariana was on College J! in 2002, fishing as a Semifinalist. She also won $5,000 on BAM in 2018) -- Only James made it to the end, but lost
James Middleton won $30,000 on WWTBAM early in Chris Harrison's first season. Just watched the episode on YouTube. Surprised no one had confirmed him as many other WWTBAM players have been identified.
