Darragh Ennis, a member of the winning team of the ITV game show “The Chase” had earned millions of hearts of all age groups undistinguished by gender. But when it comes to the female fans, then Darragh Ennis is potentially lucky! Darragh Ennis is an Irish entomologist, neuroscientist, quizzer, and now a prominent television personality with a huge fan base. To add more glitters to his introduction, we would also like to mention that Darragh Ennis is a postdoctoral researcher at Oxford University.

The Chase is a British television quiz show broadcast on ITV and hosted by Bradley Walsh. In this contest, the contestants have to play opposite to a professional quizzer, who in the show is known as the “chaser”. The chaser would attempt to prevent them from winning a cash prize. The six chasers on the show were Darragh Ennis, Paul Sinha, Mark Labbett, Shaun Wallace, Anne Hegerty, and Jenny Ryan. Darragh Ennis has joined in series 13. While Labbett and Wallace have both been chasers since series 1. Anne had joined in series 2. Paul Sinha in series 4 and Ryan in series 9.
In the show, a team of four contestants individually attempt to accumulate as much money as possible. Then it is later added to a prize fund only if the contestant survives their chase. The chaser has to attempt to catch each contestant during their chase. This process would eliminate that person from the game and prevent the money from being added to the collective prize fund. Then if we talk about the individual chase, the player has to choose between a higher offer, a lower offer, and their earned money.
Followed by this, the contestants reach the final round. Here who survived their chases have to play collectively as a team against the chaser for getting an equal share of the prize fund. According to our sources, Darragh Ennis had earned £9,000 in the Cash Builder round and defeated the fellow chaser Paul Sinha and had taken that money into the Final Chase. The other three contestants also had advanced, but each of them took negative low offers from Sinha so that the final prize total went on to become £6,300. The fans were enraged because of the money lost by Darragh following the decision of his teammates.
In the April of 2020, Ennis was announced as the sixth chaser on “The Chase.” His debut episode had brought around 4.9 million viewers, which became the most-watched episode of The Chase ever.
