Mark Labbett

Joining Burns on the show as the formidable Beast is Mark Labbett. One of the original "Chasers" in the UK version, he's been conquering opponents for six seasons and has set his sights on taking on the United States' best and brightest. Labbett has degrees from Oxford, Exeter and Glamorgan universities and is also a qualified mathematics teacher. Labbett's name—from the original French "La Bête"—literally translates as "The Beast." At 6'6" tall, he is a quiz giant in every way: arrogant and intimidating, with a menacing laugh when he senses a contestant is on the ropes. As likely to win the psychological battle as the intellectual one, The Beast will use every dirty trick in the book to put his opponents off their guard.
