What did The Vixen say about The Chase?

In an interview with Radio Times, Jenny shared what it was like to film the show and the spin-off Beat The Chasers.

“Obviously when we do the daytime show all the pressure is on the one pursuer so you feel very focused while the pressure on Beat The Chasers is a bit split between all of us,” she said.

“But it’s also pretty exhausting because there are five really great people up there. It gets pretty exhausting to be a part of after a while and so does the relentless quiz. “

How did Jenny Ryan come to The Chase and Beat The Chaser?

Jenny gave a glimpse of how The Chasers managed to secure a spot on the show.

It turns out it’s not just their brainpower that gets them there. In fact, it’s all about host Bradley Walsh.

“It’s not just about being the best quizzer in the world,” she said. “In that case it would be a very different line-up of pursuers, and I don’t think it would have taken as long as it did.”

She went on to say that if Bradders “doesn’t feel like he can chat with a potential quizzer” they won’t get on the show because it “doesn’t work.”
