The Chase host Bradley Walsh slammed for ‘patronising’ comment at young player
The Chase fans called out host Bradley Walsh for being "patronising" as a young contestant took part in the ITV quiz show.
Ben, 19, took on chaser Anne Hegerty during Tuesday's episode, and the student put on an impressive performance.
Bradley exclaimed: "For 19 with those questions as well, that was terrific."
He added: "Well played for the 19 year old, terrific."
Viewers thought the television star was being "patronising" as he continued to mention Ben's age.
One said: "How patronising is Bradley to young players? Does my head in #TheChase."
While another wrote: "Four grand is excellent "for a 19 year old"? How patronising. It's not that good regardless of age #thechase".
A third added: "We get it.. He's 19 #TheChase."
"Oh STFU about age!!!!", penned a fourth.
Ben was in fact the only player to make it into the final chase against the incredibly smart Anne.
He answered ten questions correctly, and so had a 12 step lead against Anne during the final round.
However, Hegerty, known as The Governess, was just too good and she caught him with just over a minute to spare.
Monday's episode of the iconic programme left viewers outraged as a contestant took the minus offer despite performing well in her cash-builder.
Even host Bradley Walsh seemed frustrated as she knocked £9,000 off of the team's potential winnings.
During her cash-builder round, Kay made an incredible £7,000, but she then made controversial decision which cost her team thousands.
She took the low offer of minus £2,000, saying it was because she wanted to be in the final chase against Jenny Ryan.
Viewers were furious, and some noticed Bradley seemed miffed too.
One said: "Love that Brad makes it very obvious he doesn't approve when player take a minus offer."
While another wrote: "Bradley's well p****d off."
"Kay has effectively denied the cash pot £9,000 – £3 grand light each!", fumed a third.
The Chase airs weekdays at 5pm on ITV.
