One thing I miss about Carol Vorderman is that she did not receive any help. There were plenty of times where she threw up her hands and said "I can't get there. I'm one away," demonstrating a certain honesty in the proceedings. Not only does Rachel Riley seem to always have the answer, she has actually correctly declared certain solutions "impossible", something you can only be sure of if you're using a solver (with incredibly rare exception). Carol used to always make a huge deal about never ever EVER saying a solution was impossible.

ETA: Even on this numbers game, you can tell just by looking at the numbers that the solution is impossible. Carol still doesn't call it impossible.

New fan of "The Chase" here. Will have to look in on it after I get some more things done. Thanks!
