The Chasers are widely-regarded as one of the most formidable quiz teams ever – but which one is the best?
Whether it’s The Dark Destroyer or The Governess, or even The Beast, contestants know they’re in for a rough ride whoever they face on the hit quiz show The Chase.
There’s no getting away from the fact the Chasers are daunting brain boxes who will do anything they can to stop players walking away with a coveted cash prize.
Their intelligence is undeniable, but what do the stats show when it comes to knocking contestants out of the park?
Well, the Sensational Six all have their own strengths, but collated data from One Question Shootout has revealed which Chasers comes top of the pile.
And it’s…..Anne Hegerty AKA The Governess
Anne comes in top position with a staggering 82.4 per cent win percentage, with the detailed research taken from 350 episodes of the show.
Amazingly across series 1-12, The Governess had an unblemished record of 100% accuracy in 23 shows and the highest number of clean sweeps (not getting a question wrong) in the Final Chase.
Just behind, and by just 0.1 per cent, is Paul Sinha ‘The Sinnerman’.
He finished with a commendable 82.3 per cent average, proving he’s one of the toughest Chasers to take down.
Many people might have assumed the imposing Mark ‘The Beast’ Labbett would have been the hardest to crack.
But he, perhaps surprisingly, came out in third position with Jenny ‘The Vixen’ Ryan in fourth.

And down in fifth place was qualified Barrister Shaun ‘The Dark Destroyer’ Wallace with an average 75.1 per cent success rate.
However, he has had an impressive 100 per cent winning record in 12 shows.
But Shaun suffered embarrassment when he lost to a team who only mustered 14 points in the Final Chase.
New Chaser Darragh Ennis joined the team in the last year but will have to wait to see what his stats reveal when new success-rate figures are released in the future.
Regardless of their success in answering questions, there is no doubt that the quiz team have become very wealthy from the show’s hit popularity.
Labbett is reportedly worth £1.69million according to Celebrity Net Worth, while the least successful Chaser Wallace is valued at £3.6million.
