The Chase presenter Bradley Walsh is famed for his witty banter on the ITV quiz show, making contestants feel at ease with his conversation.
However, the chat turned awkward on Thursday afternoon's episode, as Brad quizzed player Alex about his career.
Alex worked in marketing for the theatre world, with a passion for arts and culture on his side as he took on The Vixen.
He said: "I work in marketing for theatre, festivals, attractions, museums, galleries. All the fun things you can spend your money on."
But, when Brad asked which show had been the "hardest sell" in his career, Alex refused to answer the question.
Looking a little awkward, he responded: "I couldn't really say."
Ever the professional, however, Bradley was quick to boost the mood in the studio, and swiftly followed up with: "Easiest sell?"
Alex relaxed immediately, and let Brad know he was thrilled to promote School of Rock, with theatre-goers having loved the film of the same name.
The theatre-buff said: "I worked on School of Rock when that came in from Broadway, and that was such a fun show.
"Of course, everyone loves the film. They’ve got kids in it who are insanely talented. And everyone comes out really happy. "
He then proved his worth in the cash builder round, racking up a whopping £7,000 as he turned to face the Chaser Jenny Ryan.
Opting for the middle offer, Alex managed to make it through to the final, having correctly answered a question about biology.
Confessing his girlfriend's expertise had offered him a helping hand, he told Brad: "My girlfriend is a biology teacher so I'm going to get slammed if I get this wrong."
Impressed by Alex's performance, Jenny felt his participation in the final round could signal her defeat.
She warned Brad: "This could be the turning point for the game."
The Chase airs on weekdays at 5pm on ITV.
