Statistics - Cash Builders

Statistics on this page are for daytime episodes of The Chase only. A few statistics for Celebrity Specials and The Family Chase can be found in their respective sections of the website.

Average Cash Builders By Series

Series 1 and 2 had by far the best cash builders. This is for 2 reasons. Firstly, the players were asked more questions, and secondly, they got more of them right. Players in series 3-5 also had the advantage of being asked more questions, so they also have higher cash builders.

The average cash builder in series 1 was almost £7,000. This dropped slightly for series 2, whilst series 3-5 were roughly £5,500. For series 6 onwards, it has been very consistent with players averaging about £4,800 in cash builders. The average for series 12 is the highest it's been apart from series 1-5.

For series 1, 20% of players had a cash builder of £10,000 or higher. For series 2 it was 10% of players, and series 3-5 was 3.5% of players. For series 6 onwards, this figure drops to about 0.5% of players.

For series 1, 57% of cash builder questions were answered correctly.This dropped slightly for series 2. Since then, the percentage of questions being answered correctly has been around 50%.
