‘The Chase’ has had its fair share of unbelievable answers since it’s been on our screens, but Thursday’s show featured a corker.
Contestant Shauna was doing so well until she was asked what colour the Statue of Liberty was.
OK, maybe Shauna’s never been to New York or seen one of its most famous landmarks on any number of NYC-based TV shows and films, but this was a multiple choice question.
The options were pink, brown or green.
“Isn’t it concrete? I was waiting on grey coming up,” Shauna told host Bradley Walsh.
“Have you ever seen it up close?” Bradley asked, trying to save her. “You can’t tell what colour it is. It’s grey.”
She added: “On the grounds that pink’s my favourite colour, I chose pink.”
Yes, you read that correctly, Shauna thinks the Statue of Liberty is PINK.
A wincing Bradley couldn’t quite believe his ears, and neither could Twitter…
Chaser Anne ‘The Governess’ Hegerty obviously got the answer correct (that’ll be green, Shauna) and also enlightened us all on why the iconic landmark is the colour it is.
“Well it’s copper and when copper gets old, it goes green.”
So now you know.
‘The Chase’ airs on ITV, weekdays at 5pm.
