These Contestants Just Shafted Their Teammate On 'The Chase' – And Fans Are Furious

It's not the first time 'The Chase' has made headlines.

The Chase

It seems there’s barely a day goes by without a story about The Chase , the frenetic game show hosted by beloved presenter – and blockbusting pop star – Bradley Walsh.

First we had the embarrassing gaffe where one set of contestants somehow changed names mid-episode . Then we had the set of contestants named after the Friends characters . Then we had the contestants named after Disney characters .

Anyone would think the producers know how to drum up a bit of publicity!

Anyway, there’s now been a new reason for Twitter users to scramble to their keyboards to vent their disbelief at The Chase .

It’s all out of sympathy for a poor old contestant called Darragh, who was ‘cruelly’ done out of a big old prize on the game show. He’d bagged a lovely £9,000 and appeared to be sitting very pretty indeed. But then disaster struck – his fellow players undercut him, taking offers (let's all take a deep breath here) of £300, -£1000 and -£2000.

Fans were up in arms that the contestants had taken such low offers, not least the two who had taken offers in the MINUSES.

The keyboard-bashing viewers ranted, shared memes and knocked up ‘wanted’ posters for the ‘cowardly’ contestants.

But one person was more forgiving. Darragh himself defended his teammates, proving that he’s a kind soul in addition to being a whiz at light entertainment game shows.
