The Chase contestant everyone is talking about for the wrong reasons

The Chase’s latest episode saw one contestant become quite the hit online.


But not for the right reasons.

One hopeful in last night’s (Thursday) episode seemed to bottle it when she took part in the ITV game show.

“Witness the best minute of quizzing you’ll see today. This girl is something else ? #TheChase,” tweeted a viewer alongside a clip from the show.

Over 500,000 have since watched the contestant pass on all but one question – often before host Bradley Walsh had finished asking them.

Only one question was answered correctly, winning £1,000 going into The Chase.

“I think you passed on a few,” joked Bradley afterwards.

The episode was watched by a near record high audience of 4.3 million viewers on Thursday.

The Chase airs at 5PM weekdays on ITV.

Now in its eighth year and and having reached over 1000 episodes, The Chase has seen global success, with versions now being made in 11 countries.

In the UK, The Chase is regularly watched by over 3 million viewers each day and previously won a National Television Award for ‘Best Daytime Show’.


In each episode, four contestants first individually take part in a ‘cash builder’ round. They must answer a series of general knowledge questions to build up a pot of money.

However, they must attempt to get their tactics right as they face one of The Chasers, and make it back safe with the cash.

Those who don’t get caught go into the final chase as a group, where they will then face the chaser once again for the chance to walk away with an equal share of the prize.

The Chasers are: Shaun Wallace (The Barrister), Mark Labbett (The Beast), Anne Hegerty (The Governess), Paul Sinha (The Sinnerman) and Jenny Ryan (The Vixen).


As well as the main show, ITV regularly airs Celebrity specials plus last year saw a new Family edition.

To be on the show, you can apply here as long as you’re over 18 and currently reside in the UK.
