When chaser Paul Sinha, also known as The Sinnerman, took his place in the hot seat for the ITV series’ final chase, his initial questions appeared much easier than the team’s according to viewers.
Bradley Walsh first asked: “How many years make six decades?” followed by, “What colour is Fireman Sam’s helmet?”
While the chaser only managed to get one of the seemingly easy questions right, he went on to breeze through the rest of the set and held back the hopeful players once again.
Convinced that 32-year-old Donna and Spanish teacher Tomos, 42, were being cheated out of their carefully built £11,000 throughout the game, viewers took to Twitter to reveal their thoughts on the apparently obvious secret behind the show.

The Chase: Chaser Paul Sinha apparently had easy questions
The Chase: Bradley seemed unaware of the difference in questions
“Easy opening questions for the chaser #TheChase,” one person wrote.
Another claimed: “Don’t care what anyone says, the chaser always gets p**s easy questions #TheChase,” followed by, “#TheChase chaser gets easy questions again to win.”
Some fans admitted they were sick of the apparent bias towards the show’s chasers, and thought producers should make it more fair, as one person complained: “Nobody ever beats the chasers now #TheChase.”
“When was the last time anybody won on The_Chase? (sic)” another added.

The latest offering also saw psychiatric nurse Donna call out host Bradley Walsh on his repetitive comments on the popular show.
When the soon-to-be Doctor Who actor said: “It’s got to be hasn’t it,” in reference to one of Donna’s answers, the contestant exclaimed: “You always say that Bradley!”
Seemingly unaware of his historic quotes from the series, Bradley, 57, said: “Do I say that all the time on the telly? It’s got to be hasn’t it!”, before joking that he would “stick his neck out” on the answer being correct.
The Chase continues tomorrow at 5pm on ITV.
