Bradley Walsh, 59, was joined by a brand new bunch of contestants today for the last episode of The Chase this year, with the foursome hoping to defeat Chaser Shaun Wallace. One of the contestants shocked everyone in the ITV studio however when they decided to take a low offer for a very unusual reason.
Kicking off the game this afternoon was player Sophie, who managed to get the jackpot rolling by getting back to the bench with a sum of £5,000.
Next up was medical professional Alex, who seemed to be a worthy competitor for the Chaser when he showed just how knowledgeable he was.
The contestant accumulated £7,000 but before he took on Shaun, The Dark Destroyer offered him a higher value of £30,000 and a lower sum of just £1,000.
After some advice from his team mates to either stick with his total or go higher, the player made the decision to go against them and accept the lower offer.

The contestant told the host: “Do you know what Bradley? You only live once,” to which he believed the player was going to take the higher sum.
Instead, Alex continued: “I’m going to go for the one grand,” which left the presenter utterly speechless.
“Really?” he asked, just to double check the contestant wasn’t joking, to which the medical professional replied: “I’m here to beat the Chaser, I’m not here for the money.
“I’m not going to beat the Chaser if I’m not back there,” he continued, as Bradley struggled to hide his reaction.
