HE’S one of the best quiz brains in the country.
But Paul ‘The Sinnerman’ Sinha suffered an epic defeat on tonight’s edition of The Chase.
The 47-year-old was left red-faced after contestants Matt, Linda and Steve scooped a £17,000 jackpot – a tidy £5,666 each.
The trio managed to rack up a staggering 23 steps ahead of the final chase.
It was too much for The Sinnerman who was timed out five questions before the end.
Fans at home took to Twitter to cheer on the winners.
“Excellent. Calm and on the game #thechase,” commented one viewer, as another said: “Get in there great game #TheChase.”
“Great team #TheChase thoroughly deserved win,” gushed a fan.
But The Sinnerman wasn’t a sore loser and described the team as “one of the best” he’s ever faced.
“Well that was pretty darn good! I have to say Paul is always rather gracious even when he loses, good for him! #TheChase,” said one admirer.
“#TheChase #gangofchase well done team, and @paulsinha is so gracious,” wrote another.

Yesterday, viewers of The Chase were left astounded by The Dark Destroyer’s near-perfect run.
And, earlier this week, Chaser The Vixen was left gobsmacked after a contestant made a very awkward blunder.
