The chasers and stars of “The Chase” game show, Milica Jokanovic, Zarko Stevanovic, and Milorad Milinkovic, were gathered together for the first time in 2021 by the Kurir team. In one of the longest-running domestic weekly quizzes, the record of the quiz was broken for Christmas and three students and one professor managed to win 1,080,000 dinars.

In the holiday spirit, we asked the chasers which celebrity would they like to host in one of the next “Chases”.
“Novak Djokovic as the greatest ambassador of Serbia in the world, rock singer Bojana Vunturisevic and my favorite sevdah singer, the somewhat forgotten Banja Luka resident Marija Sestic” – Milica revealed.

Zarko’s favorites are also athletes, while Milinkovic did not want to list because he would surely forget someone.

Milica Jokanovic: I was thrilled to meet Milan Bukvic

Milica Jokanovic, as many call her – the princess of knowledge, has been our best competitor in quizzes for years. She seduces the audience with her knowledge, but privately she still struggles to find a job.

I will remember the previous year as a great risk to the health of all of us, and for the fact that many of us, unfortunately, became redundant in these harsh conditions that affected everyone. Many of my friends and relatives have suffered from both cases of pneumonia, which affected me a lot, on a human level.

What does Christmas mean to you and how is it celebrated in your home?

“My late father had a birthday and a name day on Christmas, his name was Bozo. Every year on January 7th, we made two cakes and celebrated two holidays as a family. Honestly, in the last seven years, since my father died, Christmas is a sad holiday for my mother and me”.

Which contestants and situations from the eighth season do you especially remember?

“Milan Bukvic impressed me in the eighth season of “The Chase” with a lightning blitzkrieg of answers. Other contestants also knew a lot, naturally, but he stood out with incredible speed, which is a bit reminiscent of my way of answering. They say that a person rejoices its’ similar, I personally was very happy when I met him”.

What do people most often ask you about “The Chase” in private?

“People usually ask me how I prepare for “The Chase”, not aware that it is necessary to constantly read encyclopedias, which I have been doing continuously since the age of three. However, in the Age of the Internet, everything is much simpler than when I was a child. There are also internet sites, blogs, and competitions within the Serbian Quiz Association”.

What is your weakest topic and which question would you certainly not know the answer to?

My weakest topic is everything related to physics as a science, I only recently realized why Venus is warmer than Mercury, even though Mercury is much closer to the Sun. The secret is in the dense atmosphere full of carbon dioxide and the greenhouse effect. Thanks to Milutin Milankovic and the book “Through the Universe and Centuries” for learning this answer, as a passionate lover of literature, through which I am working on my weaker areas.

Milorad Milinkovic: Privately, everyone asks me about Milica and Memedovic

Milorad Milinkovic is known to film fans as a great director. In “The Chase”, he has the longest experience as a chaser, and in the quiz, he admits that he has a soft spot for the ladies.

COVID marked the year for all of us. How will you remember 2020?
Uh, I hope to remember it for the projects I started in it, which I will finish by next year, with God’s help.

What does Christmas mean to you and how is it celebrated in your home?
Christmas is one of the two biggest Christian holidays, meaning joy. Without joy there is nothing. That’s how it’s celebrated, joyfully.

Which contestants and situations from the eighth season do you especially remember?
Like most viewers, I remember the most sympathetic competitor, granny Ruzica Beric.

What do people most often ask you about “The Chase” in private?
What is Joca like? And Milica?

What is your weakest topic and which question would you certainly not know the answer to?
Ehh, like I’m gonna tell you that, and then live to hear those exact questions in the next season? No way…

Zarko Stevanovic: The quiz is not rigged, nor do I get any questions in advance
The youngest world champion in quizzes and a chaser in “The Chase” is Zarko Stevanovic. He reveals to Kurir that he is happy that he finally found a job in his professional field and that he spent Christmas surrounded by his closest people.

I will remember 2020 as another period of independence because in that year I found my first job in my professional field and bought my first car, which I consider to be great life events and decisions. Of course, I will also remember the year for all the bad things caused by the pandemic.

What does Christmas mean to you and how is it celebrated in your home?
Christmas for me is an opportunity for family socializing and joy in health and peace. In my home, it is celebrated traditionally, with special family guests and gifts, a festive table and cesnica (special holiday loaf of bread), and after that by socializing and talking.

Which contestants and situations from the eighth season do you especially remember?
The best competitors, such as Predrag Zivotic and Milan Bukvic, certainly remain in my memory, and there are also individuals who have yet to be broadcast. However, I remember situations more often than the contestants, especially the episodes in which the final chase was played until the very last second, as well as wrong answers to seemingly easy questions.

What do people most often ask you about “The Chase” in private?
Certainly, the first questions are “Is it rigged?” and “How do you know so many answers?” It is possible to answer both questions at the same time because the only secret of this “occupation” is the talent for remembering and constant work on oneself and on knowledge. Thousands of questions and data pass through my hands every week because I do quizzes privately as a hobby and part-time job, so it is quite logical that a lot of data will remain in my head.

What is your weakest topic and which question would you certainly not know the answer to?
During these few years of recording the game show, I noticed that I am usually thin in my knowledge of generational issues, such as culture, sports, or politics of the former SFRJ. For a large number of viewers, such questions are easy and come as a good day, but it is something I have not experienced, so I have to inform myself in other ways. Because of that, and also because of my (dis)interest, I don’t believe that I would know the answers to a large number of questions regarding our old domestic shows.
