Larry Emdur begins Monday on The Chase

First look at Lazza hosting The Chase, from Monday.

Larry Emdur will make his debut on The Chase on Monday in a 5:30pm slot on Seven.

This presumably means today will be the last for long-running host Andrew O’Keefe.

Emdur said, “I’m thrilled to be the new host of The Chase and I can’t wait to see the look on my mum’s face when she hears me saying all those big words. I’m excited to be starting on Monday during the Olympics. Mind you, any of the Chasers will happily tell you this show IS the Olympics of quizzing.”

He added, “I felt reasonably composed during the shows until The Governess starting flirting with me, then it all kind of fell apart.”

Below is also a cute segment which screened on The Morning Show.

Who is the greatest Chaser of them all? Is it The Shark, Goliath or The Supernerd, or maybe your money is safer on The Governess or The Tiger Mum?

Renowned for hosting some of Australia’s most-loved game shows, including Wheel Of Fortune and a record-breaking 1,500 episodes of The Price Is Right, Emdur has a front-row seat to witness contestants battle the thrilling brainpower of epic Chasers The Shark (Brydon Coverdale) Goliath (Matt Parkinson) The Supernerd (Issa Schultz) The Governess (Anne Hegerty) or The Tiger Mum (Cheryl Toh).

The Chase Australia is an ITV Studios Australia production for the Seven Network based on the original ITV quiz show.

  1. What a shame the Chase is now hosted by such a shallow glitzy show type as Larry Emdur, the previous host was fine and I watched the show every night before the news, but I’ll not watch it now, sorry 7 but you’ve lost me.

    1. Grant Denyer seemed happier presenting Family Feud. He wasn’t going to get any contestant go for a million dollars as the safe levels weren’t in play until Simon Reeve took over. I’m surprised Simon wasn’t considered for hosting The Chase.
