Paul Sinha admits that Parkinson’s is taking a toll on his quiz

Chase star Paul Sinha showed the effects of Parkinson’s disease on his questions.

The 50-year-old announced that although he suffers from “bouts of fatigue”, he is still taking various tests because “Parkinson’s can be the beginning of a journey, not the end”.

The Beat The Chasers star was first diagnosed with degenerative brain disease in June 2019.

The Chase: What did Paul Sinha say?

However, Paul insists that he is not ready to take the quiz just yet.

In a long thread on Twitter, he said, “Parkinson’s is a disease process that may or may not greatly affect the way I take quizzes.

“Although there is no doubt that the drug causes erratic bouts of fatigue that don’t really help.

“But probably getting COVID in March was worse in many ways because it completely destroyed my excitement for studying what was going on in the real world.”

He added, “In 2020, a few quiz heroes started popping up to organize things. Leagues, competitions, etc. Online Quiz League. Wikiquiz. 30 @ 6pm. Quarantine Quiz League. The BQA. Mimir is fine.

“As a result, I can compete against the best in the UK and the best in the world. Relentless.

“When my dopamine runs out, I spend every day pushing myself, both without speed and with speed tests.”

His last tweet read, “And the results have been remarkable.”

Would Paul Leave The Chase?

Despite his health problems, Paul’s brain still works great at The Chase.

Before that, however, he admitted that if his health got worse, he would quit the ITV show.

Paul appeared on Loose Women and explained, “The brain is my job … it worries me, I want my brain to be the best it can be. What I’m happy is that my brain seems to be working at its best. “

When asked about his future, he said, “I know if I stop answering questions quickly, The Chase won’t fire me. I’ll say, ‘It was a nice trip, you treated me very well later on. ‘”
