THE Chase viewers were gobsmacked after a contestant made a HUGE blunder over a shockingly “easy question”.
Host Bradley Walsh was joined by 21-year-old student Romer on Friday’s instalment.
The Durham University chemistry student told the presenter that he plans to win some money to travel the world.
He also told the host that he plans on working in the civil service – leaving Bradley stumped.
Bradley joked: “To be in the spy or something?”
The contestant replied: “I like politics and policymaking, I think it’s a good fit for my skillset.”
However, the student was immediately puzzled on the first cash builder question.
Bradley asked: “What does the L in he motoring term L-driver stand for.”

“Bradley: Learner ??.”
A third added: “What’s the L plate stand for in driving? ‘Left’ Can’t lie that made me laugh. ? #TheChase”

Unfortunately, the student was caught by the quizmaster and his time on the show was over.
Romer’s teammates managed to make it back to the final round with a total prize pot of £20,000.
