A former Steyning Grammar School student has been heavily criticised by viewers of ITV’s The Chase, after she was branded the worst contestant ever.

On Wednesday, Hannah Mastrangelo failed to raise any money for her team during her solo question round with presenter Bradley Walsh.

The 19-year-old, who currently attends the University of Bath, ended up with minus £1,000 when up against the Chaser Shaun Wallace.

Although the student is majoring in French and Spanish, she also struggled to say “Hello Brad, it’s a pleasure being on The Chase” in either language when prompted by the game show host.

Despite all this, Hannah still managed to walk away with a share of the prize money, having only answered one question correctly.

Viewers took to social media immediately after, criticising her for making her university arts department ‘look like fools’.

Martin Howay tweeted: “It’s cos of people like Hannah that those little silica bags have “do not eat” on them”.

Even Ant and Dec felt the need to comment, the duo tweeted: “Worst I’ve ever seen”.
