The Chase fans slam ‘snakey’ contestant for committing the biggest sin

The Chase viewers were left fuming after a contestant committed one of the biggest sins – taking the lower offer.

Teacher Jo managed to win £5,000 after a successful cash builder.

But when faced with three options, including a higher offer of £55,000 and a lower of £1,000, she did the unthinkable and took the lower offer.

Despite saying she did it because she wanted to be back with fellow contestant Sam for the Final Chase, viewers were not having any of it.

Flocking to Twitter , one viewer wrote: "Definition of a Snake – Someone who takes the lower offer on The Chase #TheChase @ITVChase."

While another commented: "Why do people try and justify the lower offer? It doesn’t matter what the circumstance, we’re still gonna call you a **** #thechase."

A third remarked: "Are the words "I said I’d never take the lower offer" ever followed by anything except "…but" #Coward #TheChase

Sadly, despite managing to get through to the Final Chase, the pair weren’t able to beat the Vixen and split the £6k.

Better luck next time…
