A The Chase contestant has hit back at critics after they complained she passed too often in the final chase.
ITV’s hit quiz show welcomed in Customer Engagement Executive Kim Williams, and while she played a good game, some viewers had a go at her after she passed four times at the end.
However, it didn’t take long for Kim to respond in emphatic style.
What happened to Kim on The Chase?
Kim had a strong cash builder, notching up an impressive £6,000.
In the head-to-head, she then took on Mark ‘The Beast’ Labbett, and decided to stick with the six grand so she could go back and support her team.
The Beast had offered her £36,000 as his high offer.
After making it through to the final, the three remaining contestants – including Kim – scored 15 points, but were easily overtaken by Beastie Boy.
And that’s when viewers took to Twitter to complain about Kim’s habit of passing too often.
Kim was good at buzzing in with pass 🙄 #TheChase

What did Kim say in response?
However, Kim herself took to the social media site to respond to the criticism.
In total, she passed four times and got one question correct in the final chase, with the team finishing on 15.

“Won’t lie, the horrible ones have been more fun to read than anything.
“In all seriousness though, unless you’ve done it, don’t say how easy it is! #thechase #pass.”
