Jade, 25, took on Jenny ‘The Vixen’ Ryan and went for her high offer of a huge £69,000. Jenny supported her brave choice and said she would be glad about the outcome no matter what. But sadly Jade was caught too soon in the popular ITV gameshow and told The Chase presenter, Bradley Walsh, she regretted taking the high offer.
Jade was the final of four contestants to go head-to-head with Jenny after Alex, Kelley and Tony all succeeded in getting through to the Final Chase.
Feeling bold after her fellow players expressed their confidence in her, Jade decided to take a big risk.
Jenny offered her a low sum of minus £3,000 as well as a middle offer of £6,000 after answering six questions correctly in her cash-builder.
Tony was the only player who advised her to play it safe, telling her: “Go with what you’ve earned.”
But Kelley told her she’d regretted not taking the higher offer herself, and Alex said: “You’re the best player – take the high offer.”
After she made her choice, Jenny said: “Whatever happens Jade, you won’t regret that decision.
“You’re going to go in a blaze of glory having gone for it like your colleagues didn’t.
“Or you’ll get through and be the toast of the team.”
“I’ll look really cool,” Jade added. “You will look really cool,” Bradley agreed.
Jade had a good start, answering her first question correctly.
The next question asked what the key ingredient of a ‘Wigan Kebab’ was, and Jade answered chips.
This proved to be incorrect, with the right answer being pie.
After this, Jade’s confidence was rocked as the next three questions were answered incorrectly.
Bradley asked: “Any regrets?”
“Yeah, I kind of wish I went for the six [thousand],” she replied. “But I look cool, so.”
The last question saw The Vixen catch her after Jade slipped up on a question about tennis, and she added: “I feel for you there Jade.
“If you’re thinking in broad terms about men’s tennis, 80s and 90s American would be the percentage answer.
“But, women’s tennis – Steffi Graf of Germany won every Wimbledon women’s singles titles from 1988 to 1993, so if you knew she was dominant, that had to be the answer [of the tennis question].”
She added: “But you’ve come out looking super cool, so.”
“You really have, super cool,” Bradley commented. “However, Jade, you have been caught.”
This meant the £69,000 she’d opted to play for vanished a the remainder of the team later took on Jenny in the final chase.
They weren’t too much of a match for the quizzer, who ended up catching the team.
They were caught after 18 questions, losing £11,000 with 45 seconds to spare.
The Chase airs weekdays at 5pm on ITV.
