Previously on the show
The previous episode of The Chase aired on January 5. The featured chaser in the episode was Victoria 'The Queen' Groce, and she lived up to her name and reputation.
The segment began with Traci Mack, David Abolfia, and Tanya Melendez going up against Victoria to win the money. The first challenge consisted of the host, Sara Heines, asking the quizzers questions. This was followed by them having to go up against 'The Queen' to claim the prize in a Q&A round.
Traci earned a total of $60,00 even though Victoria offered her $3,300 with a higher offer of $175,000. David claimed a total of $40,000 even though he was offered a lower amount of $10,00 with a higher offer of $150,000.
The Chase’s third contestant, Tanya, earned $20,000. She was offered a lower offer of $5,000 and a higher offer of $250,000. Despite her co-competitors encouraging her to take the deal, she stood her ground and played it safe.
In the final round, the amount that was up for grabs was $120,000, and they had to go against Victoria once again. For the Final Chase, they received a headstart which allowed them to answer three questions before 'The Queen' stepped into the ring. They managed to get 17 correct answers. However, Groce answered all 20 correctly with time to spare on the clock.
