I don't see a problem with having a one-on-one (player vs Chaser) finale.
I don't think the number of Chasers you take on in the final round makes any
difference in the grand scheme of things, rather the amount of time you have which makes or breaks you.
Bear in mind, all five (or six if you include Darragh despite him having not (yet) appeared on Beat The Chasers) of the Chasers are individually incredibly knowledgeable about a huge array of topics. Granted, there are bound to be some weak points for each of them, but by and large, if you are playing against a Chaser one-on-one, the likelihood is, the Chaser will get most questions right and you'll have to do well to beat them.
When there are multiple Chasers playing on a team together, you'll quite often see more than one of them rushing to the buzzer at once, and the team as a whole ending up getting the question wrong because while Mark, Anne, and Paul may know the answer for certain, Shaun happened to buzz fractionally earlier than the others and guessed wrong. Sometimes, too many cooks spoil the broth.
As such, I don't think taking on all five Chasers at once is quite as big a leap in difficulty compared to taking on one or two of them as it's made out to be on the programme, and I wouldn't consider a one-on-one player vs Chaser final to be an unsuitably easy finale by any means.
