A Mayo native has come away with a stunning prize fund of €30,000 following his appearance on the hit quiz show ‘Beat the Chasers.’
Rob Lee, a civil servant from Westport, took part in last week’s episode of the ITV show where he faced off against the self-proclaimed “Greatest quiz team in the world” whose members include The Beast (Mark Labbett), The Governess (Anne Hegerty) and The Dark Destroyer (Shaun Wallace).
At the top of the show, he told host Bradley Walsh that he would spend any winnings he made on a holiday for his friends, with Greece a possible destination.
In the first round, Rob racked up an impressive €3,000 as a starting prize fund and then it was time to face the Chasers. Rob decided to take on four of the Chasers and faced off against the Sinnerman, the Governess, the Vixen and the Dark Destroyer.
With an 18-second head start on the Chasers, he beat them with 16 seconds remaining on his clock to take home a cool €30,000. Remarking on his win, Rob smartly used Shaun Wallace’s own catchphrase, “It’s just another day at the office.”
