    I was a contestant on season one of The Chase, premiering this Thursday on ABC.

    I’m on episode 107, airing January 21st. It was such a fun experience and I am excited to share. :)

    I already had a OnePass set up but this is cool to know and adds even more reason to watch. The first episode airs Thursday night so I'll be watching all the way through the 21st at least. The promo shows the three big Jeopardy champions. I think I saw that Ken Jennings will also be the interim-host of Jeopardy starting next week.

    I was already looking forward to this show. Now, there’s one more reason to watch. Good luck! I mean, hope you did well!

    I was just watching last night's Jimmy Kimmel, and at the 17 minute mark there's a commercial for The Chase. It features a contestant referring to the Jeopardy champions, "We're not afraid to take down any of those guys." Nice.

    Looking forward to watching! I already had a season pass set up to record, but it's even more exciting to watch someone I know is on the show. So cool!

    Very exciting. I also had an SP, because of the hosts, but now there is a special reason to watch.

    I'm confident you did well!

    I watched tonight's premiere and liked it. Can't wait for your episode @firerose818 and to hear the behind-the-scenes scoop.

    I like that they added the revolving "chasers" to this version
    Like watching them rag on the person in the hot seat.

    The game was OK but I just hate the hour-long, prime-time gameshow format. The actual gameplay is buried under two tons of glitz and fancy lights and blah banter. One of the great things about Jeopardy! is they fit so many questions into a tight half-hour. I was definitely leaning on the FF button during the individual chase portion.

    The best parts of this were the other Chasers watching, and also allowing answers to be given as soon as possible. You really get a feel for how amazing these guys are at this by how fast they come up with answers across a wide spectrum. And also how good they are at guessing correctly even if they're not sure.

    One thing: the first guy, who got kicked out, seemed to me to get much harder questions during his chase than the second two.

    As a huge fan of the UK version, which has four contestants and a little less filler, I kinda liked the changes that stop it being a direct copy - namely the chasers. The amounts involved are ginormous in comparison and the individual chase questions are a lot harder (the UK version can see up to 8 or 9 correct answers).

    I was intrigued to see that the sound effects during the chaser board were the same, which made me wonder if there was a five second time limit to pressing the answer button like the UK show or not (like the GSN version).

    I enjoyed it. Challenging questions, and the game format works well (unlike the stupid show that followed it). Looking forward to seeing one of our own on here in a few weeks :)

    I watched the UK version the last time I was over there on vacation. I kinda liked that version better.

    I can confirm you have five seconds to answer the question.

    I thought the snarky comments from the peanut gallery was a little odd.

    I also would have liked to see the Chaser give his answers before the answer is revealed. It’s a little weird when they go “oh, yeah, I got that one right.” I know he certainly had the answer locked in, but it still kind of feels like he could just say he got it right when he really didn’t.

    When you are playing, you look at a monitor and you can see that you both select an answer.

    It worked the same way on the UK version of the game, with "The Beast", and I used to gripe about that as well. Sure, it's locked in (we assume and are promised) but I'd rather hear it from the Chaser and know it that way (or see it on the screen if they want to show it that way, just to have it confirmed in some way that makes it more obvious what they chose).

    So no spoilers of course, but tell us what the filming was like, and how did you get picked?

    Fun background stuff.
