On Monday night’s show, presenter Bradley Walsh introduced a candidate named Pepe, a 23-year-old apprenticeship support assistant from Hampshire.
As the ambitious contestant did her best to take on The Housekeeper aka Anne Hegerty to earn big bucks, viewers couldn’t help but admire Pepe’s beauty.
Speaking to social media, viewers of The Chase shared their love for Pepe on Twitter.
An admiring viewer wrote: ” The wow hunt Pepe…. what a great way to start 2021 ”.
Another The Chase fan tweeted: “I thought she looked like Jessica Alba”.
Meanwhile, another admirer wrote: “I need support for [smiling emoji] ».
Elsewhere another onlooker wrote: “I never wanted anyone to go chasing as much as Pepe… just wow [fire emoji] The hunt ” .
“Anyone find Pepe’s Instagram please [laughing emoji] the hunt, ”a fan of the candidate tweeted.
However, one of them noted: “What a wonderful young Pepe is on The hunting ambitions, caring, intelligent and hardworking… what a shame this is not what the people of Twitter want to focus on… ”
Finally, a Pepe fan on The Chase concluded, “I didn’t expect to fall in love after turning on The hunting but let’s go !! ”
Well, although Pepe didn’t make a lot of money on the Monday night show, but at least she gained a legion of fans in the process.
It just goes to show that it’s hard to beat the housekeeper herself, Anne Hegerty.
The Chase continues weekdays on ITV at 5 p.m.
