This show just has to be a set up. So many quizzers and they are all very confident - they just have to be chosen specially. There are no duff contestants, which there would be if it was random. The way the cameras focus on the Chasers just as they make a comment surely means it is scripted too.

It’s entertaining Lankeela
The contestants for every quiz show are very carefully chosen, so Beat the Chasers will be no different I'm sure.
They have multiple cameras and will have ones concentrating on the Chasers to capture any comments and then edit the programme accordingly.
I don't think it will be scripted. Some years ago I spent a lot of time (and phone calls) trying to get on to 'Millionaire'. Eventually I twigged that because I kept answering all the questions they gave me correctly - I had no chance of being selected! There is probably some form of filtering system in operation here to ensure that the contestants give a good fight/programme.

Well he was just 18, good for him having a go
Potential contestants having to go through an 'Auditions/Casting' process, which is likely to filter out weaker applicants:

You wouldn't want duff contestants, it would make it too easy for the chasers, they are obviously chosen very carefully and have to have a good (a certain level) of quiz knowledge.
On the last show I watched there were two contestants who got the first question wrong, so there are duff contestants.
There will be the odd one that gets the opening question wrong, doesn't mean they are duff, some of those opening questions are a bit iffy, id never heard of a certain phrase on one opening question, thats a bit disrespectful mate.
I think this is better than 'The Chase'. Much sharper - and not so much waffling.
I think they want variety...so they do want the odd person who falls at the first hurdle. I wonder too if a whole lot of contestants are filmed together then the shows are edited together from those recordings so they get a variety of contestant and outcome in each show as shown
Last nights winner introduced himself as a personal shopper in a supermarket,true. Although he didn’t reveal he had been a fraud investigator for 30 years.He kept his cool and won £100,000, good luck to him.
The contestants can't be random - they have to be vetted/auditioned in some way to make sure they're not weird or utter no-hopers. When I did 15-to-One, everyone had to attend an audition first, and that was fifteen people per half-hour show, every weekday.
Was that with William G Stewart or irritating Sandi Toksvig.
William G - he didn't suffer any nonsense, as he was also the producer. On one occasion he tore a strip off one of the cameramen for chatting while he was talking!
The programme was all the better for the way he ran it.Totally unwatchable now.
I agree, cannot stand Sandi Toksvig - on that or anything.
