The Chase’s Shaun Wallace admits to using sneaky tactic to psych out contestant | The Sun

SHAUN Wallace — aka The Dark Destroyer — admitted using a sneaky tactic to try to confuse a contestant on Thursday night’s episode of The Chase.

Construction grad Ashley went head-to-head with The Dark Destroyer for £6,000 and was almost caught out when the chaser tried to psych her out on the last question. 

Ashley had made it through the cash builder round with £6,000 and decided to stick with that amount during her head-to-head round with the 62-year-old chaser.

However, Shaun tried to catch her out while she was answering the last question, which was about business investments. 

“The wealth of a business that is invested to make more money is called what?” host Bradley Walsh asked the contestant.

As usual, she had three answers to choose from: A: Endowment, B: Dividend, or C: Capital.

After a bit of deliberation Ashley went for ‘C’ which she chose because “usually capital means more money.”

Ashley was one from home and her answer, which was correct, meant she’d be going through to the final.

However, before she returned to the podium, The Dark Destroyer admitted he used a sneaky tactic to try to psych her out while she was deliberating over the answer for that last question. 

He waited as long as possible to answer the question hoping she would get confused and not go for the “obvious” answer. 

Shaun admitted: “The reason why I took so long is I was hoping you wouldn’t press ‘Capital’ because ‘Capital’ was the obvious answer and I was hoping that the longer you took the more you’d change your mind.”

However, the chaser’s trick didn’t work and Ashley’s £6,000 brought her team’s total to £12,000.

Joining Ashley for the final chase was the first contestant Sam and fourth player Hillary. 

They had a total of £16,000 up for grabs, but only scored a total of 12 points which was not enough to beat The Dark Destroyer.
