The Chase is easily one of the most popular shows in the country, so it makes sense that its host is probably well paid.
Not only has Bradley Walsh fronted the reality quiz series for a full decade, but he's also fronted a number of other UK shows, appeared on Coronation Street and was once a pro footballer and recording artist.
It's a career spanning 40 years, but his net worth might surprise you.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Bradley Walsh has more than NZ$12.6m in the bank.
The Sun previously reported that Walsh had been paid more than NZ$17.7 million for all his ventures between 2016 and 2018 alone giving him an average earning of around NZ$8.8m a year and making him one of the UK's highest-earning stars.
The Sun also noted it was a huge step up for Walsh who, as recently as 2000, was living in an NZ$188,000 terraced house in East London. He now owns a five-bedroom mansion in Essex, having sold his last home for NZ$4.7 million three years ago.
His earnings from his work go into his company Wingit Productions, which he runs with wife Donna, and is currently worth just under NZ$13 million.
