Bradley Walsh presented as contestants Aaron, Anne, Susan and Joe pitted their wits against one of the ruthless Chasers in the hope of winning a potential prize pot worth thousands of pounds.
The four were tasked with playing as a team and playing strategically to answer general knowledge questions against the clock and race down the game board to the exit without being caught.
But Aaron left viewers crushed after accepting the low offer during his round – and he was subsequently the only contestant left for the Final Chase.
He failed to put up a decent fight and saw The Chaser knock off his score of 13 questions in simple, quick fashion.
And it’s fair to say viewers had little sympathy – calling out his “poor” move of taking a low offer in a bid to be home safe.
“It ruined the episode,” one moaned.
“Aaron you’ve spoilt The Chase tonight by taking the grand, now the whole nation wants you to lose,” a second agreed.
Each night, former Coronation Street star and Doctor Who companion Brad welcomes four contestants into the studio in the hope of building a formidable total and winning the jackpot.
But last night it wasn’t to be for poor Aaron – but fear not, because The Chase will return tonight at 5pm.
