BuzzerBlog has been saying that the American version of The Chase should come back and it would be perfect to have Ken and Brad as two of the chasers.

Having all three as Chasers on ABC would fulfill both what ABC wants and what Buzzerblog wants.

Yet James was the one the show’s producers considered for the American version.

James is the only one I can see either accepting that role or pulling it off. Perhaps Mark Labbett has forever made me think of the chaser as a villain that the nice-guy images of Ken and Brad don't fit into.

I saw James in some interview recently say that he wants to be a game show villian, I assume in the way of being a chaser type personality.

I don’t see James as a villain. He makes bets based on his daughter’s birthday, how evil can he be? He also is a rather low key player and doesn’t do a bunch of waving his hands around to draw attention to himself.

As much as I agree with that and would love to see Ken, Brad, and James in a version of this on prime time...The Chase would essentially have to be introduced to the American audience. Yeah, they did a run on GSN, but other than game show fanatics, there aren't many people who are all that familiar with it. The shows they have now are all proven formats that have the addition of some sentimentality from either Boomers or Gen X. It's a risk to put on a different show with a format that - AFAIK - didn't set the world on fire when it aired on GSN.

I agree that the show would be perfect for the GOATs. I'm more expressing frustration that ABC suits would be reluctant to do it...and also frustration that the public would respond better to a redux of an old classic than something new.

I think he would excel at the snarky insults that Labbett was so good at.

I'm going to disagree. I think he doesn't have that same awareness of how his comments go over. It's a really fine line. Besides, Labbett has that whole English haughtiness thing going for him.

Fair enough. It's interesting how many people (not just you and I) can watch the same person and come to completely different conclusions. Some think he's a smug, pompous, self-righteous *****. Others adore him. Go figure. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

ABC already has a game show on the air that requires three contestants... "Press Your Luck."

That's exactly what ABC will be doing if they try to further capitalize on these guys...

And it would be awesome to see the three go head to head on that show.

And the Whammys are Trebek based and at least one will go "Ooh, sorry" before zeroing out the score.

I think High Stakes Wheel of Fortune would be hysterical. Or an hour of Pyramid with the three of them playing would be fun.
