The Chase viewers were left gobsmacked over an ‘impossible’ question on the hit ITV quiz show. Dominic, Georgina, Janet and Leroy were up against Chaser Paul Sinha on Thursday night (May 5).
Janet, a retired planning manager, impressed everyone with her score of eight correct answers in the cashbuilder round. But viewers were gutted when she was sent home by Paul after a round of “awful” questions – with some even suggesting she had been set up br producers.
Host Bradley Walsh asked Janet: “What is the approximate weight of the Earth in kilograms?” The answers were 6 quintillions, 6 sextillions or 6 septillions.

@teasiemc agreed: “#TheChase this past while it seems that the questions given to good players are ridiculous. Almost as if they’re trying to get rid of them.”
@official_gr_ said: “how the holy hell was Janet supposed to know the weight of the earth ??? Pop it on a pair of kitchen scales ???? Ridiculous #thechase bring her back, questions are supposed to be factual not estimated clap trap!”
