Darragh Ennis of The Chase responds angrily to viewers who criticize him for prioritizing BBC rival Pointless.
DARRAGH ENNIS has reacted to a fan of ITV’s The Chase who stated that they would rather watch daytime rival Pointless.
Darragh ‘The Menace’ Ennis, star of The Chase, responded to a Twitter user’s remark when sharing a preview for the show online. The quizmaster, who has over 18,000 followers on Twitter, had first used the platform to celebrate a contestant’s victory.
Eden, 20, had accomplished the “highest single player victory on The Chase ever,” according to the video.
“#TheChase amazing and well deserved win for Eden,” Ennis wrote in the tweet.
With a 12-year run, the show has become a British daytime TV fixture. It airs daily at 5 p.m.
However, this means that the show will have to compete with fellow quiz show Pointless, which airs weekdays at 5.15pm on BBC One.
As he disclosed the significant bombshell, one Twitter user was quick to call this out to the Chaser.
“Some of us watch Pointless at 5:15 and The Chase at 6,” the fan tweeted.
“I’d rather not have seen this so soon.”
“I would recommend watching The Chase first,” Ennis said.
“The issue has been resolved.”
“I run quiz teams, and they all watch both,” the game show fan continued.
“It’s best to stay away from Twitter until after 7 p.m.”
The Chaser, on the other hand, concurred and added, “Probably.” Especially in light of today’s episode.”
Eden, the last participant standing, made history on Tuesday night’s edition of The Chase when he made it to the final on his own.
Darragh was taken aback when the candidate got the bulk of the questions right.
He then had two minutes to accurately answer 18 questions.
Darragh had 12 seconds left and five questions to answer correctly as the round came to a close.
Eden, on the other hand, managed to vanquish him and walk away with a whopping £75,000 prize.
Bradley Walsh, the host of The Chase, exuded enthusiasm as he announced the game’s conclusion.
He hugged Eden and said, “Time is up.” “£75,000, I can’t believe it.”
“£75,000 at 20 years old, who is your best mate?” the TV personality asked again.
