The Chase: Viewers slam show after blind contestant asked question about colour of snooker balls

The Chase fans have been left unimpressed with the show after Josh, a contestant who is blind, was asked questions about the colour of snooker balls.

Astrophysics student Josh teamed up with fellow contestants Lesley, Phil and Jen on the show, with the team battling against chaser Mark ‘The Beast’ Labbett to win the cash prize.

After his quick fire round, which saw him rack up £5000 to play for, the first question host Bradley Walsh asked Josh was: ‘At the start of a snooker frame, which ball is placed furthest from the player?’

Josh incorrectly answered pink, with Mark choosing the right answer, black.

While some acknowledged that the questions are selected randomly, many weren’t happy that some of Josh’s questions made the cut.

One wrote: ‘Hard to believe but #TheChase just asked a blind man a question on the coloured balls of snooker, visual art and bioluminescence. I really hope it’s random selection.’







Another added: ‘Blind guy is asked a question about the coloured balls in snooker. Seriously ITV?!’ while one more said: ‘Imagine asking a blind chap a colour related visual question…?!

One more unimpressed viewer said: ‘He’s blind and he gets three questions where he’d have to know what something looks like.’

Josh ended up being caught and eliminated from the team, with just Jen and Lesley left in the Final Chase. However, they narrowly missed out on the cash prize.

Bradley recently spoke out about his future on the show, saying he plans to retire in a couple of years.

The 61-year-old spoke on the Sliding Doors podcast about being prepared to call time on his 40-year career.

‘You know what, in a couple of years time I won’t have to do any of it, I’ll be retired and that’ll be it,’ he said.

Bradley has become a regular on ITV over the years, hosting The Chase for more than a decade, and spin-off Beat The Chasers.

‘It seems like I’m on your screen all the time only because I cram everything in a certain area of the year. We make 210 Chases, 16 Celebrity Chases, 16 Beat The Chasers. It’s only actually 86 days recording,’ he said.

The Chase airs weekdays at 5pm on ITV.
