There was real drama on the latest episode of Beat The Chasers, when viewers were left convinced one contestant was ‘robbed of £50,000’.
Sunday’s episode of the quiz show saw one unlucky participant miss out on a huge prize due to a minor mispronunciation, and fans were not happy.
Esnart from Luton went up against Paul Sinha, Jenny Ryan, Anne Hegerty, Shaun Wallace and Mark Labbet, and was doing incredibly well until she received a question about Disney films.
When asked which classic animation features the song Everybody Wants To Be a Cat, Esnart gave the answer: ‘Aristocrats’.
Presenter Bradley Walsh was unable to accept the answer, and it led to Esnart losing momentum in the final chase.
‘Good young player,’ Bradley said, talking to the chasers after Esnart’s exit.
‘She was winning right up until about the last 15-20 seconds. We were in real trouble,’ Mark added.
Sadly, it led to her losing out on a prize of £50,000 – and viewers weren’t happy she was penalised for the mispronunciation.
‘The first contestant was robbed – she got the correct answer, Aristocats. Being told she was wrong threw her off – pay her the £50k,’ one wrote.
‘Esnart was robbed blind on that Aristocats question,’ another said.
Meanwhile, the Beat the Chasers finale revealed that one contestant took home a £50,000 prize and celebrated by buying his girlfriend an engagement ring.
Beat The Chasers is available to watch on ITV Player.
