We all have our favourite Chaser on the hit TV show The Chase ... but who actually has the best record?

Thanks to the One Question Shoot fansite, the numbers are in and you may be surprised by the results!

Analysing success rates and the number of questions answered per minute, the quiz show favourite Anne Hegerty - aka The Governess - is the best chaser of the five.

Over the course of 350 episodes and 10 years since the show began, Hegerty has maintained an overall 82.4 per cent winning streak.

She has had an average win ratio of 78 per cent across previous seasons, and that increased to 86 per cent in the latest series.

Hegerty can answer an average of 21.55 questions in two minutes - which is why she's so tough to beat when it comes down to that final chase.

But her colleagues aren't far behind her; Paul 'The Sinnerman' Sinha is only 0.1 per cent behind her in his winning streak.

Meanwhile, Shaun 'The Dark Destroyer' Wallace is at the bottom of the ladder, but not by much.

He can answer an average of 19.45 questions in two minutes, while the others can bank at least 21 in the same time.

So what can we take away from this?

Well, if you ever end up on The Chase, pray that you meet the Dark Destroyer.

The Chase airs Monday to Saturday at 4.55pm on TVNZ 1.
