THE Chase fans were left in hysterics after a contestant’s ‘generation snowman’ blunder.
Host Bradley Walsh presented another episode of the ITV game show which saw a brand new batch of contestants aim to win some serious dosh.
After accepting the middle offer of £8000, operations manager Joe took on the chaser and came unstuck with his first question.
Bradley asked: “What mocking term describes youngsters who seem less resilient and more prone to take offence than earlier generations?”
After totally guessing the answer, Joe guessed option A, which was “Generation Snowman.”
However, the correct answer was option B – “Generation Snowflake” and Joe choosing the wrong answer, which left viewers howling on twitter.

Along with a series of laughing emojis, one fan laughed: “Generation Snowman!!”, while another chuckled and wrote: “Snowman.”
Some viewers could not believe got the question wrong, as another user penned: “Everyone’s heard of the term snowflake. Come on! #TheChase.”
“How can you not have heard of snowflakes???? #TheChase”, said another shocked viewer.
While this fan added: “How have neither of them heard the term snowflake, it was fairly prominent in the news at one point #thechase.”

Despite guessing the wrong answer to that particular question, Joe made it through to the final round with teammate Karen with a total of £15,000 on the baord.
Sadly the pair were caught by chaser Jenny “The Vixen” Ryan with 30 seconds to spare after answering 13 questions correctly.
Even with four attempts to push back, only two were executed by Joe and Karen.
The pair went home empty-handed awhile The Vixen emerged victorious.
