Beat The Chasers became interesting as George from London stepped up to take on the quizzing experts.
George astounded viewers with his extensive knowledge, answering all five questions correctly in the initial round.
If players are successful enough to have a flawless round they are then offered a “super offer” from one of the six chasers.
As the talented contestant had a clean sweep, he was offered a jaw-dropping sum of cash.
Twitter went into a complete frenzy as the Paul Sinha – aka The Sinnerman – explained that if George opted to take on the entire bunch of Chasers, he could bank a staggering £500,000.
Online users dubbed George the “best player” they’d ever seen on the programme.
One person said: “500 GRAND?!! No way I could do that though. #BeatTheChasers.”
Another exclaimed: “#BeatTheChasers half a million pounds shut up.”
A third gasped: “Wow top one was 500k.”
While another chimed: “£500k as the super offer on #BeatTheChasers.”
In spite of the entire nation willing George to take on all six Chasers he decided he could beat four instead- with the chance of bagging £50,000.
He took on Ann Hegarty, Mark Labbett, Shaun Wallace and Jenny Ryan with a 16 second time advantage.
George stormed through the questions and didn’t answer any incorrectly, leaving the Chasers on the backfoot.
With 35 seconds still remaining on the clock, George was announced the winner after defeating the four experts and leaving them stunned.
Host Bradley Walsh was gobsmacked but also knew that if George had been braver he could have left the set with £500,000.
“35 seconds on the clock, you know what that means, if you’d taken the higher offer you’d have been leaving here with half a million,” explained Bradley.
George didn’t seem too gutted as he waltzed off set with £50,000 in his pocket and being applauded by all six quizzers.
