People Are Convinced Yesterday's Episode Of 'The Chase' Was Fixed
If you tuned into The Chase yesterday afternoon, you'll have seen Anne 'The Governess' Hegerty completely obliterate the team of challengers without breaking a sweat.
Viewers have been complaining that the episode was a fix after this particular chaser's questions seemed a lot easier than her opponents'.
Contestants Chloe, Tricia and Jack (who put in an incredible performance) were given questions such as: "In 1970 which Duke opened Woburn Safari Park to the public?" and "What is the largest island off the west coast of North America?"
Despite the tricky questions, the team managed to set The Chaser a big target of answering 20 correct answers.
The Chaser managed to catch the team's total effortlessly, after being asked questions such as: "Which US tycoon is referred to in the press as The Donald?" and "Pickling solutions contain water, salt and which other liquid?".
It wasn't long until The Chase's viewers were claiming that the whole thing was a fix.

Despite the claims, it turns out it's really not a fix at all.
For starters, the team choose the questions before the round, so they have a 50/50 chance of getting the supposed 'easier' questions.
And let's not forget the fact that television quizzes are heavily regulated, so fixing the show really wouldn't be worth the risk for ITV.
Oh, and The Governess is really, really good at quizzes. That's kind of why she's on the show.
