Meet Quizzer Victoria Groce On The Chase
It was 2009 when the inaugural season of The Chase aired on UK TV. Fast forward to 2013, the show then launched on GSN, and now as of March 2022, The Chase is here on ABC.
However, this time, the formidable quiz show regular Mark Labbett, a.k.a The Beast, will not be returning to the show. Rather, he’s been replaced by a new face Victoria Groce, dubbed The Queen, on Mark’s recommendation.
Reportedly, Mark Labbett was forced to leave the show after ABC decided against renewing his contract.
Also, voluntarily quitting the show alongside Mark was Ken Jennings. This led ABC to invite two new chasers Buzzy Cohen (The Stunner) and Brandon Blackwell (Lightning Bolt) for The Chase season 3.
