Viewers of The Chase were left fuming following last night’s episode of the ITV gameshow (November 8), claiming that a set of players should’ve been given a pushback for their answer about French cheese.
It came amid a controversial ruling in which the three remaining hopefuls flubbed a question after an unfortunate mix-up in the wording. This led to them being unceremoniously eliminated from the quiz show.
Many have since slammed the ITV show for not letting them have a point for the answer.

The Chase team eliminated in French cheese debacle
In last night’s episode, contestants Karen, Sally and Armin faced The Chasers for a prize fund of £17k.
In its final moments, Karen, Sally and Armin went head-to-head with Shaun ‘The Dark Destroyer’ Wallace.
When host Bradley Walsh asked: “Comte is a cheese from what European country?” Shaun answered the question wrong – saying Italy – giving the team a chance to jump in.
“Is it French?” Sally asked teammate Armin.
“I think it’s French, yeah,” he confirmed. “France.”
When pushed for an answer, Sally went with “French”.
“Not French,” Bradley said. “Comte is a cheese from what European country? France.”
This temporary lapse allowed Shaun to catch up, with only seconds to spare. The team were then caught and sent home. Armin looked particularly devastated by this turn of events.
