Viewers of The Chase astounded by The Dark Destroyer’s near perfect run – could YOU have beaten him?


THE Dark Destroyer left viewers of The Chase in awe as he crushed the dreams of three contestants in the final chase.

The trio, Elias, Ruth and Pete. had managed to secure a 19 question distance between them and imposing quiz fiend Shawn Wallace, but after a couple of pop-culture blunders, he made light work of them.

Striding on to the podium, Shawn was quick to praise the hopefuls, who had secured a £15,000 prize pot.

He easily navigated the first three questions, but came a cropper with the next one.

Obviously not one for Christmas movies, Shawn failed to correctly name Will Ferrell’s character in Elf.

However, the contestants knew it was Buddy, pushing him back one place.

With the game resumed, Shawn got everything correct until question six, which was about cult noughties drama The Gilmour Girls.

Again the team pushed him back a square by answering it correctly.

Shawn stumbled over the question after next, and the team also failed to guess correctly that Room on Fire and Angles were by The Strokes.

But from that moment on there were no more hiccups, and he ploughed through remaining thirteen questions as the contestants looked on anxiously.

“OK wow what a performance at the end there,” said Bradley. “It’s tough when they get going like that with that kind of rhythm.”

Shawn then described them as a “formidable team” before shrugging “just another day at the office.”

STILING IT OUT The Chase viewers stunned by contestant’s famous dad

People at home were quick to heap praise on the 57-year-old, who won Mastermind in 2004.

One said: “#thechase was a brilliant performance today from Sean well done.”

Others added: “Good performance by Shaun….I don’t say that very often ?#gangofchase #thechase” and “Delighted The Dark Destroyer beat Ruth, Pete and Elias.”

Yesterday, Chaser The Vixen was left fuming after a blunder from one of the quizzers.

And last month one of the contestants revealed that he had a VERY famous dad.
