One fan said, "I don’t think Victoria correcting him saying she’s still The Queen means The Chase is returning. She’s still The Queen in the way that you’re the Queen (given your username), you don’t need a TV show to tell you you’re The Queen of trivia, nor do they have exclusive rights to call her that, and she’s absolutely right about that."

Another fan commented, "I took that interaction as her being like 'the show is over but hey I’m still the queen' like in general, as a joke. I could be wrong though. Just feel like if they were trying to advertise something they would’ve been more specific."
