The Chase’s Paul Sinha gives ‘sympathy’ to contestants as ‘everything goes wrong

Paul Sinha offers sympathy to contestants on The Chase

The Chase star Paul Sinha held his mettle against two contestants tonight but offered them his sympathy when “everything went wrong” for them as they attempted to win the jackpot.

In a tense final, Liz from Shrewsbury and Dave took on the Chaser hoping to win £14,000.

While they had a good run getting 13 questions correct in their two-minute time slot they did miss a couple of questions and make some mistakes.

When Paul came out to take his chaser’s chair and try to beat their run, he was emphatic about their situation.

“Everything went wrong in that second minute from mishearing questions, misunderstanding questions, not getting questions….But you have my sympathy rather than any criticism,” he assured them.

As if he had tempted fate Paul himself got off to a bad start when he answered “lips” when asked what body part brow growth serums are used on.

As it was his first question he couldn’t be sent back on the board so when Liz and Dave got it correct they were pushed forward onto 14 instead.

However, much to their dismay he then breezed through an impressive nine correct answers in one minute before tripping up on a question about the nationality of a tennis player.

Although Liz and Dave appeared to be taking a stab in the dark when they said “Czech” they were proved correct leading Paul to applaud them.

Bumped back to eight he also got his next question wrong leaving him with just over 40 seconds to answer seven questions correctly to beat the pair.

He managed it with 10 seconds to spare leaving them visibly disappointed to be heading home with nothing.

Despite his victory, he was keen to acknowledge that it hadn’t been an easy game.

“I thought those were tough sets with questions where everything has to be listened to and worked out,” he said after claiming victory.

“And when you said brow growth serum I thought brow was some sort of German pharmacology company,” he told host Bradley Walsh before acknowledging: “Those were tricky old questions.”

The Chase airs on weeknights at 5pm on ITV and ITVX.
