THE Chase fans have branded the show an "absolute fix" after losing £27k in an "unfair" final round.
Host Bradley Walsh, 61, welcomed four more hopefuls to the ITV show, with remaining contestants Kyle, 31, Laura, 23, Mark, 50, going head-to-head with the Shaun Wallace.
The trio answered 21 questions correctly and stood a good chance of taking home the total jackpot.
But quiz genius Shaun fired through his questions, answering 17 questions correctly in a row, catching the team with just four seconds to spare.
Shaun congratulated them on their efforts, but sneaked in a cheeky snub, saying: “They played very, very well, but I was superb there.”
However, viewers pointed out that Shaun only won because the questions were remarkably "easy".

One said: “Absolute fix how easy the questions have been for him” as another wrote: “They’ve given Shaun the ‘Junior Chase’ questions!”
“Those questions were p*** easy in comparison”, but not everyone agreed with one fan writing: “Before anyone claims "fix" – can we just remember that the team's last question was about antihistamines counteracting histamines," another posted.
A third agreed: "How easy are these questions?” as another wrote: “Shaun getting easy questions!”
Another added: "Quite possibly the piss easiest set of questions ever asked !!! I got 20 myself.”

Meanwhile, viewers were left very distracted by contestant Mark's outfit and likened him to a famous movie spy.
Mark honoured his Scottish heritage and wore a kilt complete with matching green velour jacket.
Complete with a goatee and dark framed glasses, fans watching at home couldn't help but think he looked a little bit like iconic character, Austin Powers.
Their observations were further cemented when Mark told Bradley he'd buy his mum a Mini Cooper complete with a Union Jack painted on to the bonnet if he won big on the show.
"This bloke looks like he should be in Austin Powers," tweeted one fan.
"Turns on #thechase see Austin Powers and comes straight to twitter to double check its not just me."
But Bradley couldn't resist asking a cheeky question about his kilt after Mark said he kept his phone in his sporran – the traditional pouch that sits at the front of a kilt and serves as a pocket.
