Brooke Burns to Host The Chase for GSN
« on: May 27, 2013, 08:58:38 PM »

A rumor had been swirling around, so I looked to confirm it in the way social media in 2013 allows.

@BrookeBurns


...I\'m working on a new series for GSN...more info in a week or so...x



@ChadMosher

@BrookeBurns Rumor has it you might be \"chasing\" some people soon on TV. Can you comment?


 


@BrookeBurns


@ChadMosher I\'ll be meeting The Chaser soon! ;)

Wow, that is just about the least congruous host/game pair I\'ve ever heard.

If she wears the sort of thing she wore as the floor correspondent for Hole In The Wall, I\'ll watch one episode.


 


/okay, half an episode


//in two-minute chunks over the course of a week

I wouldn\'t be surprised if GSN advertised this as something like \"Beauty and the Beast.\"

She\'s the second game show host to share my birthday, March 16th.  Chuck Woolery was the first.

Deadline has confirmed this-apparently Dan Patrick was in the mix but negotiations fell through...

I\'m not sold on this- I guess she\'s done runthroughs, but I don\'t know if she can handle the pace of the show..

Also I suspect Mr. Patrick doesn\'t look as good in a tiny dress.

So this will be Brooke\'s second show with her hosting, the first being Dog Eat Dog.  I\'ve never seen The Chase, so I\'ll watch out of curiosity.

\"Chaser, the score you have to beat is 8.  Can you do it?\"


 


\"Depends.  How many polysyllabic words are in the questions?\"

I\'ll reserve judgement. Dog Eat Dog didn\'t require it\'s host to be more than a talking head, regardless of who they selected, so judging her based off that wouldn\'t necessarily be fair.

For a network that hired Patrick Duffy and Corbin Bernsen, that\'s a pretty low bar to cross.

Not a great vote of confidence for Brooke based on the article alone (well, we DID go after Dan Patrick -- he is on the alleged J! successor shortlist after all, but when he said no, well .... here you go!). 


 


Like others, I\'ll reserve judgment.  Her earlier hosting and co-hosting gigs didn\'t require her to do much, so perhaps she\'s seeing this as an opportunity to show that she\'s more than just, say, \"Baywatch babe #45\".

I went for the cheap joke earlier, but admittedly she wasn\'t terribly bubbleheaded on Dog Eat Dog at all. I\'m not expecting a Jim Perry-level reader (man, how awesome would THAT be), but there\'s really no reason to expect incompetence until it\'s demonstrated.
