THE Chase fans all said the same thing after a contestant revealed her VERY unusual job.
Tonight's instalment of the ITV quiz saw Matt, Christine, Geoff and Diane take on Mark Labbett AKA The Beast.
Londoner Matt, 25, was first up and managed to win an impressive £9,000 in the cash builder round.
He got himself into the next round and cashed in £9,000 for the team.
Next up to face the chaser was Christine, 55, from Lancashire.
Host Bradley Walsh was keen to get to know the player and asked what she does for a living.
