Contestants Cory, Bex and Craig were left stunned after she took the lower offer despite their advice.
This disappointed fans too as they took to Twitter to express their frustration. One fan wrote: “#TheChase Come on the show, boast about all your degrees, go for the low offer!”
Another added: “NOOOOO! -£2K #TheChase I have NEVER been so disappointed in a person in all my days!!”
“Women’s got seven post grad degrees and takes the minus offer,” a third fumed.
