The Chase is the hit show which has us totally hooked as we try and beat the quiz professionals and laugh at host Bradley Walsh’s gaffs.
The ITV hit sees the likes of Mark ‘The Beast’ Labbett, Anne ‘The Governess’ Hegerty, Paul ‘The Sinnerman’ Sinha, Jenny ‘The Vixen’ Ryan and Shaun ‘The Dark Destroyer’ Wallace take on contestants, and they’ve also recently added new Chaser Darragh Ennis to the equation too.
And while all of the Chasers have undeniable general knowledge skills which knock most people out of the park, who is the best out of all of them?

Well, last year data was collated by One Question Shootout to reveal just which Chaser would come up trumps, and it was a very close call.
The research looked at over 350 episodes and it revealed that Anne Hegerty, aka The Governess, comes in top position after an amazing 82.4 per cent win percentage.
Very impressively, Anne has had 100 per cent accuracy in 23 shows and she has the highest amount of clean sweeps, which means she hasn’t got a question wrong, in the Final Chase.

However, sitting very close behind Anne is Paul, The Sinnerman, who has a win percentage of 82.3 per cent, which is only 0.1 per cent off leader Anne.
In third place, it’s Mark Labbett, best known as The Beast, who is followed by Jenny, also known as The Vixen.
The research put Shaun Wallace in final place with an average of 75.1 per cent, but he has had an impressive 100 per cent record in 12 shows.
Shaun was once beaten by a team who only achieved a score of 14 in the Final Chase, and he once got more than half his questions wrong too.
However one thing is for sure, and that’s that the Chasers all have exception quiz skills and they have done since the show began in 2009, continuously impressing audience members and contestants alike.
And as a result of their quiz talents, it seems the Chasers have big sums of money to show for it too.
Mark Labbett is reportedly worth worth $2 million, which roughly translates to £1,609,550, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
Mark has likely made a lot of his fortune through The Chase, but he has also taken part in various quiz shows, banking thousands of pounds in prize money.
And it has been reported that Shaun Wallace could be worth as much as $5 million, which is roughly £3,641,975.
The Chase Stars
While it isn’t known how much each Chaser gets on the show, Anne Hegerty recently shared her upset after her pay was reduced.
When asked if she was happy to have new chaser Darragh "The Menace" Ennis join the quiz show, Anne said: “This is a tricky one, because a lot of the public imagine that we are on the same sort of deal that Hollywood stars are in the 1930s.
"They got paid a salary per month, per year, and they were salaried employees at the studio and the studio would find them things to do for that salary. That isn't actually how it works.

How much is The Chase star Mark Labbett worth following successful quiz career?
"We, The Chasers and Bradley, we get paid a flat fee for every fee that we do," she shared.
"So any show that I'm doing, is a show for which I'm being paid and the other Chasers aren't. And that applies to all of us.
"If you're going to divide the shows by six rather than five, then, you know, do the maths," Anne said.
