The Chase viewers left outraged as player makes minus offer U-turn

A contestant on Tuesday's The Chase caused uproar among fans after they made a controversial minus offer U-turn.

Elisa was the third contestant to take on Mark "The Beast" Labbett, but unfortunately didn't do as brilliantly as her fellow players did before her.

Bryan had made it back to his teammates with the high prize of £30,000, while Jim brought back his £5,000 he made in the cash builder.

Despite struggling in her opening round, Elisa insisted she would never take the minus offer.

The Chaser offered her -£3,000, £2,000, or £45,000, but then Elisa made a controversial choice.

She said: "I have always said I would never go for the minus offer because of what it is.

"The fact that's it's minus as well, you've done well there to mess up.

"45 is out of the questions completely but it's going to have to be the minus I'm afraid."

Viewers watching at home were furious and took to Twitter to share their outrage.

One said: "I won't take the minus offer ! 1 second later…..I'll take minus £3000…#TheChase."

While another wrote: "If I was friends with someone that went on #TheChase and took the minus offer, they would no longer be my friend."

A third added: "When to go for the minus offer on #TheChase you deserve to be caught!"

"There's a few things that make me angry in life. Right up there is a contestant on #TheChase taking a lower offer," penned another fan.

Despite taking the -£3,000 offer, Elisa didn't do well in her round against The Beast.

He caught her, and so she didn't make it back for the final chase alongside Jim and Bryan.

Even though they had performed well throughout the show, Jim and Bryan didn't answer enough questions correctly and were caught by The Beast.

The Chase airs weekdays at 5pm on ITV.
