THE Chase fans were left ripping into a "hypocrite" contestant after he deployed "predictable" tactics on the show.
Tuesday evening's episode of the ITV quiz show saw Soo, Dom, Nichola and Will join forces to take on one of the country's finest brains.
The last contestant to face Chaser Anne Hegerty was Will, a mortgage broker from London – but it wasn't long before viewers picked up on his tactics.
Up first to take on The Governess was Soo, who scored an impressive £7,000 in her cash builder.
When deciding which offer to take, Will chimed: "I think you should go for the higher offer, if you want to fly to America, you should go, first-class – take the higher offer."
Up next was 26-year-old Dom who scored an impressive £8,000 in his cash builder, but Anne tempted him with £30,000.

When he turned to speak to the panel, Will said: "Dom, I think £30,000 is a fantastic offer, make your dreams come true."
Office manager Nicola was the third contestant to play and was offered £37,000 to move a step closer to the Chaser.
Will quipped: "Well, I don't want to sound like a broken record but £37,000 seems like a great option."
Viewers began to pick up on his tactics and immediately took to Twitter, with many labelling him as a "leach".
Alongside an array of angry faced emojis, one person penned: "Think Will was desperate for someone to go high. What a leach!"
Echoing their comments, someone else said: "I can see straight through Will. He's definitely playing a game here."
While a third added: "Waiting to see if Will goes high, after telling the others to do so."
Eventually, it came to Will's turn and Anne also picked up on his tactics, questioning: "You've told everyone else to go high, will you have the nerve yourself?"

She then offered him a whopping £62,000 – but he decided to stick with the £7,000 he earned in the cash builder because there was no one telling him "to take the higher offer."
Despite taking the middle offer, Will was caught by Anne and missed out on the final.
The Chase airs weekdays at 5pm on ITV.
