LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Tonight's another opportunity for "Jeopardy James" Holzhauer of Las Vegas to prove he knows more trivia than you, me, or pretty much anyone else in the country.

ABC's new game show, "The Chase," debuts tonight here on KTNV.

It pits contestants against "Jeopardy" legends including Holzhauer.

He's taking on the persona of "high roller" on the show, a title he says certainly fits.

"It's got a component of gambling where you can take a bigger risk and win more money, and chasers kind of say how much extra money you offer to take the bigger risk her how much they'll be punished if they take the lower risk. And I like to punish people who don't step up and take the risk so maybe they should call me the low roller, I don't know" says Holzhauer.
