Video: What Makes “The Beast” Laugh on “The Chase”?

The Chase, Tuesdays at 9:00PM ET on GSN, debuted to strong numbers last week which we're thrilled about.  Hosted by Brooke Burns, contestants must take on Mark "The Beast" Labbett to win hundreds of thousands of dollars.  Compared to Brooke's niceness and genuine concern for the team, The Beast is gunning for contestants and will do what it takes to win.  Those who have seen the British version know that comedic questions are a staple of the show.  Those have stayed in tact, luckily, and we now know what makes The Beast laugh.  Click here to watch and to see some pictures of The Beast, executive producers, and I at this weekend's enormously fun Trivia Championships of North America.
