Fans of The Chase shocked when priest gets Bible question wrong

by Tola Mbakwe

A priest who was a contestant on the game show The Chase has left fans shocked when she got a Bible question wrong. 

Alex from Waltham Abbey was asked "Dinah was the only daughter of which biblical patriarch's 13 children?"

She said Abraham, but the correct answer is Jacob. 

The 26-year-old told the host that she anticipated this happening. 

She told Bradley Walsh afterwards: "I knew a Bible question would come up, and I already said, all along 'If a Bible question comes up, I know I will get it wrong'".

Walsh joked that he was surprised Alex got the Bible question wrong but got a question about Las Vegas correct.  

"There was another one in there you knew that took me completely by surprise, Caesar's Palace?" he said.  

Alex laughed and said: "I'm not a gambler." 

"What are you doing out in Vegas?" Walsh asked.

"You just see it in movies!" she said. 

"Are you trying to convert people in Vegas? What are you doing?" Walsh joked.

Fans of the game show shared their thoughts on the situation online. Many of them were also surprised she didn't get the answer correct.



Alex didn't make it through her round.
