Airdate: The Celebrity Chase

Sunrise personalities Samantha Armytage, David Koch, Edwina Bartholomew and Mark Beretta will be the first team to play The Celebrity Chase, coming to primetime on Seven.

Offering cash for charities, these specials will begin on Wednesday next week.

Host Andrew O’Keefe, said: “The great Carl Reiner once said that a brilliant mind in panic is a wonderful thing to see. That’s the beauty of these specials… the pressure to be brilliant can bring out the funniest, most unexpected sides of the people we think we know so well.”

The Celebrity Chase isn’t just a quiz, it’s a race where the celebrities must ensure they stay one step ahead of the Chaser, one of the finest quiz brains in the world.

Which Chaser will they face? The Supernerd, Goliath, The Shark, The Governess or The Beast?

Rising to the challenge will be; Sunrise team – Sam, Kochie, Eddy and Beretts, Ricki-Lee, Joel Creasey, Derryn Hinch, Nazeem Hussain, Lucy Durack, Merv Hughes, Lauren Jackson AO, Anne Edmonds, Red Symons, Cal Wilson, Merrick Watts, Sarah Hanson Young, Yvie Jones, Simon Burke, Lawrence Mooney, Abbey Gelmi, Brendan “Jonesy” Jones, Lisa Curry, Kris Smith and Pete Rowsthorn will all have the chance to win money for the charity of their choice.

Will they stay ahead of the Chaser and collect the cash pot or get caught and lose the lot?

Teams of four will face a sequence of quick-fire and multiple-choice question rounds to build up their cashpot, but if they allow the Chaser to catch them, they are out of the game.

Working together, players who make it through to the Final Chase then unite one more time before their common enemy: The Chaser.

The Sunrise team, Samantha Armytage, David Koch, Edwina Bartholomew and Mark Beretta will be the first team to play the game.

Will Sam know which terrestrial planet begins with a vowel? Does Kochie know what the text abbreviation YSK stands for? Can Edwina answer correctly in which world war was the Oscar winning film Kokoda Front Line produced? Will Mark Beretta’s sport knowledge serve him well answering – the term for which automatic car gear position also means a golf shot hit from a tee?

Do they have what it takes to beat the Chaser?

Wednesday, 21 August at 7.30pm on Seven.

  1. “in which world war was the Oscar winning film Kokoda Front Line produced?” technically this question if asked is incorrect – it should read ” in which world war was the Oscar winning film Kokoda Front Line set? The question would have to be answered none is it was not produced in the war years.

    • Gotta love the revolving door of “working celebrities” who have given up their day jobs to appear on the myriad of “celebrity” shows we are so fortunate to have: Have You Been Paying Attention, Hughsey We Have A Problem, The Project, Celebrity Name Game, I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, Talkin’ ‘Bout Your Generation et al.

      They may as well just consolidate them all into one show and give these poor buggers regular work. They can call it “Hughsey, Have You Been Talkin’ ‘Bout Your Celebrity Name Game Project? Get Me Out of Here!” or HHYBTBYCNGPGMOOH for short.

      • The people who appear on have you been paying attention seem to be radio people or stands ups or both and whatever Tony Martin is these days (twitter personality and podcaster?)

        Not sure about the other shows.
