Chase viewers labeled Shaun Wallace “useless” as the team won a whopping £ 60,000 in the episode last night (Feb.12).
He admitted making “stupid mistakes” on the ITV quiz show, but the audience weren’t that nice.
What happened to Shaun Wallace on the Chase?
After contestants Donnie and Jack won £ 4k and £ 2k respectively for the Final Chase, it was Nicole’s turn to bring the bacon home.
In the Cashbuilder, the Plymouth medical secretary scored three grand, but went for Shaun’s huge top offer of £ 54,000.
Although the team advised her to bring the £ 3k back, Nicole decided to do it.

And didn’t she just do it that way?
The team took the £ 54,000 back and then settled on the final chase with £ 60,000 in the pot to play.
With 14 correct answers and three additional points, Shaun had to ask 17 questions correctly to win.
Shaun got off to a good start, but only seconds later he got three wrong answers, which the team successfully answered and pushed him back.
With just a second and three answers, it was clear that Shaun had wrenched defeat from the jaws of victory.
“What a gig! What a gig! Six attempts to push back, three executed, Chaser took three, brilliant!” Squeaked host Bradley Walsh.
A few silly mistakes of mine, a disappointing day at the office.
In the meantime, Shaun had to hold up his hands and admit “stupid mistakes”.
“It was a good game,” he said ruefully. “A couple of stupid mistakes on my part, a disappointing day at the office.”
