He was also the host of Australia's long-running version of Deal or No Deal, so this is a heckuva legacy being tarnished here.
You're in a room. You're wearing a silly hat.
There are letters on the floor. They spell "NOPE".

Here's another article from the same site about the cancelation of their version of Celebrity Name Game, which, to be honest, I didn't even know existed.

I saw one episode and it was decent. Grant's no Craig, but he had somewhat similar irreverence. Game play was near carbon-copy, but the endgame was played for AU$10,000.

Larry Emdur is reportedly the frontrunner as the new host.

And itís official- Larry Emdur is the new host (they have enough confidence theyíre moving production to Sydney so he can continue hosting Sevenís Morning Show)

Taken from Larry Emdur's official Instagram feed this morning :-

"Just sittiní on a log in the fog with some big news ! Iím so excited, honoured and nervous (mainly nervous) to be your new host of The Chase Australia. In 1988 when Family Double Dare was axed after the first episode I thought my game show days were over 😁but you know I really love this genre and this space. The Chase is one of the tv worldís greatest quiz formats and I promise the devoted fans of the show that by the time we start Iíll be able to pronounce the name of the Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajökull . It was critical in the decision-making that I could continue with @morningshowon7 so Iím sorry @kyliegillies youíre stuck with me .
Hope thatís not too much Larry Emdur on your televisions.
Here we go !! @thechaseaus @morningshowon7 #yourtimestartsnow
