ABC’s quiz show, The Chase, puts good old trivia nerds up against the quiz expert, aka the Chasers. In the show, the contestants attempt to take home some money by challenging the Chasers. After quiz legends Ken Jennings and Mark Labbett left the show after its 2nd edition for various reasons, three new faces are added in Season 3 of The Chase. One of them is Victoria Groce aka The Queen, the only female panelist this season. This article is about Victoria’s husband Phil Groce, however, there will be itsy-bitsy information about her throughout the article.
Join us as we talk about Phil Groce’s age, job, personal life, and more.
Meet Phil Groce, Quizzer Victoria Groce Spouse
Besides being one of the Chasers on The Chase, she is a musician and a medical writer. One of her previous jobs was as a writer at Verywell Fit, where she wrote about food allergies, celiac disease, and food-restricted acting. During her time at Verywell Fit, she also wrote articles on a restricted diet and science features for Mental Floss and Gluten Free and More.
Victoria Grace was also named 2021 World Quizzer of the Year, thus deserving of the title of Chaser. More about her quizzing records, she was also a 2021-22 Quizzing World Cup victorious player.

She completed her undergraduate studies at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. There she did her research work on Freire’s view of progressive and humanistic education: Implications for medical education.
The adorable couple also has at least one daughter from their marriage. Phil has mentioned his daughter quite a few times on Twitter. Once he wrote, “Just walked out of new Star Wars, now walking into Doctor Who xmas special. Because my daughter wants to.” The other time, he shared, “My 10yo daughter’s password policy is more secure than my office’s password policy. #proudparent.”
Social Media Banter
Quizzer Victoria Groce and her husband Phil Groce share a very beautiful friendship, which is evident from a couple of their fun, witty social media fights.
Sharing Victoria’s promo shot for The Chase Season 3, Phil wrote, “This is the look I got when I said that personal trainers should be called “exercises”, on his Twitter. Victoria made a comeback joke with her reply that read, “Amazingly, forty minutes on the exercise bike did not dissipate my annoyance at that “joke”, to which Phil again replied, “Should have done twenty more minutes. An hour of bike dispels rue.”
Back in 2019, Victoria had hilariously trolled her spouse saying: “I have just inspired my husband to run a D&D one-off in which you do all the normal RPG stuff, BUT ALSO each member of your party is a specific member of Fleetwood Mac and you have to navigate that interpersonal trainwreck. No attempt is made to reconcile any of this.”
