22-year-old Amber stunned fans and host Bradley Walsh in the latest episode of The Chase after rinsing more than £50,000 from Chaser,Shaun Wallace.
Budding stand-up comic Amber was the final player to face Shaun Wallace on the hit ITV quiz show on Friday night, with just two of her fellow contestants ‘home and dry’ with £8,000.
After an impressive cash-builder, the part-time bartender banked £7,000 before heading to the table to face Shaun Wallace.
When ‘The Dark Destroyer’ returned to his seat, he offered Amber a chance to return home easily with £1,000, or risk it all with an offer of £52,000.
After consulting with fellow players Keith, who earlier in the show stunned Bradley after revealing his age, and Ken, who tried to get her to stick with £7,000, Amber turned to the table and said:
“I’m so excited by that £52,000… Oh, let’s go for it!
“I’m only here once!”
Shaun almost instantly sat back, surprised by Amber’s bold move as Bradley shook her hand.
In a show first, Amber left Shaun for dead after acing most of her questions, and making the most of some errors made by The Chaser at the start to bring back £52,000 to her team mates, totalling £60,000.
“A 22-year-old beats the ex-Mastermind champion, a complete white-wash, beaten by five!
“Amber, guess what, you’re through to the final, 60 grand!”
As Bradley went to move on, he recalled: “22 years of… you know what? I don’t think we’ve anyone of that age go through on that higher amount!”
Fans also Tweeted their amazement: “Amber was brilliant shame she didn’t win.”, with another adding: “”Amber your the best player I’ve seen on this show ITV will be missing a trick if they don’t use your talents.”
Unfortunately, Shaun redeemed himself in the final chase and correctly answered all but one of his questions to catch the team, sending them home with nothing.
The Chase returns to ITV every weekday afternoon from 5pm.
