Contestants Gareth and Sue were the only two left in their team as they took on quizzer Jenny Ryan in the final chase with £10,000 in the pot.
And a blistering performance from Gareth, in particular, saw them off to a solid start as they set the bar high for the chaser by getting 21 questions right.
Jenny was on form in tonight’s (27.01.20) episode too though, having easily caught the other two contestants – one of whom, Anthony, got an impressive £9k in his cash-builder round.
But her efforts weren’t enough to beat the combined might of Gareth and Sue, and after a handful of pushbacks she lost by eight points.
“That was a really good performance from the team,” she said afterwards. “I got a couple of questions wrong in the first half dozen and that put me behind. I was always chasing after that.”
“Unbelievable,” host Bradley Walsh said. “There you are, Sue and Gareth go home five grand richer each from today’s game and they take down the Vixen, who’s been on scintillating form recently… brilliant.”
Reacting on Twitter, many fans heaped praise on the pair – especially Gareth, who was super fast as he fired off answers to the questions read out by Bradders.
Others pointed out that The Vixen had been well and truly “annihilated” and “demolished”.
On said: “Brilliant. Gareth is a machine.”
The Chaser has been absolutely demolished.
Another wrote: “Well done team, especially Gareth.”
A third put: “Great to see Sue and Gareth win #TheChase – great performance. #TheVixen annihilated. (Sad, I know, but I loved it.).”
Welldone team, especially Gareth
Bye all 😘 #thechase
