Oh dear, researchers on the TV quiz The Chase must be hiding under their desks this morning after viewers turned on the show after a massive blunder took place during Tuesday afternoon’s show.
As the jovial Bradley Walsh proceeded to ask contestant Mo the initial money-building questions before his head to head with the Beast, the IT consultant gave an answer that was incorrect.
However, instead of Bradley pulling him up on the mistake, he accepted the answer and he was given the £1000.
The question in, er, question, was: “What was the occupation of Matt Damon’s character in the film The Martian.
Mo went for the obvious answer – an astronaut.
But sharp-eared viewers were fast and furious to respond on social media that the answer given wasn’t right.
His character in the film – so you know for any future pub quizzes you might attend that will ask the same question – was in fact a botanist!
Ah! Well, now you know!
But this isn’t the first time Bradley has got the answer to a question wrong.
Last month, he told contestant Barbara that Ferrerro Rochers chocolates contained almonds, when in actual fact, they continued hazelnut which she had actually answered correctly.
In the end, Mo who had banked £5,000 in his cash builder, failed to beat The Beast and lost out on winning the money he needed to put towards an extended holiday.
