2017 Summary

Final Chase Summary 2017

Chaser of the year is undoubtedly Jenny. She finished the year with an incredible 87% win rate - over 12% better than any other chaser. She was the only chaser to win 100% of the winnable games (target <=18). As well as the only chaser to win over 50% of the not so winnable games (target >=19). She also caught the highest target of the year (and the last 5 years), when she caught 24 just last week. Well done The Vixen.

Greatest Final Chase Performances

In date order, these are the 11 occasions when the chaser has scored at least 24 points in the final chase. I've included chaser losses, as, amongst others, Mark and Paul scoring 27 when chasing 28 are exceptional performances. Unfortunately, the series 5 episode 63 with Paul, has not been repeated in the last 2 years. Based on the amount of time he had remaining, I would think it was an almost faultless performance by Paul.

The only one of these performances that comes close to matching the accuracy of Jenny's performance this week is the first one, where Mark managed a clean sweep chasing 26. If you watch the video, Mark changes his mind with his answer to question 14. Nowadays, I'm not sure he'd get away with this - such as the Elitalia not Alitalia answer from Paul this week.

It is almost impossible to separate these 2 performances. But maybe what tips it in Jenny's favour, is that she was defending £100,000 compared to Mark's £22,000.

Final Chase Summary - Series 11 (first 50 episodes)

After 50 episodes of series 11, Mark and Anne have the highest win rates at 90% and 89% respectively. However, Paul and Jenny have been facing the strongest teams with an average target of 18.9 and 17.7 respectively. Both Paul and Jenny have a 100% record against targets of 18 or fewer, but the amount of games they are playing against scores of 19+ when the chaser is likely to lose, contribute to their overall win % being lower.

Average Final Chase - Series 11 (first 50 episodes)

Next I've divided the totals to see what would happen in the average final chase. The final column shows how many correct answers including pushbacks, the team need to defeat the chaser on an average day.

Mark, Anne and Paul are tied together on 23 - although Mark gives out slightly fewer pushback opportunities. Jenny is only 1 point further back.

Player Performance by Gender, Age and Country

The following tables are based on regular episodes for series 1-4. The data is almost complete, just missing 1 episode from S1 and 3 from S2.

The differences by gender are only slight. With males scoring higher in the cash builder round, more likely to take the high offer, less likely to take the low offer, and having a better chance of winning their head-to-head.

  No. of Players Average Cash Builder
(rounded to the nearest £100)

Male 303 £6,100 11% 74% 15% 60%
ALL 584 £5,900 13% 75% 13% 58%


The differences by age are quite interesting. The youngest age group are the weakest players - scoring least in their cash builders. They are the only group to be more likely to be caught in the head-to-head rather than make it home - despite 27% of them taking the lower offer. As you get older, you seem to get better at general knowledge. 45-54 year olds have the highest average cash builder, and almost the highest percentage for winning the head-to-head. After this age, performance drops slightly. Percentage winning head-to-head is highest for the 65+ category, but as none of them went for the highest offer, you would expect this figure to be higher.

Note: In series 1, players didn't normally state their age - although 1 player did. The rest are classed as unknown.

Nearly 85% of these players are from England. In the cash builder, Northern Irish and English players are slightly better. Welsh players are much more likely to take the middle offer. Northern Irish and Scottish players are more likely to win their head-to-head.

Note: For country I'm using the location they give in the introductions at the start of each episode, whether they say this is where they are from (now) or originally from.

The Chase is 1000ish

I'm finding it hard to agree with ITV that today will actually be the 1000th episode of The Chase. [Unless of course they are showing this special episode massively out of sequence, hoping that nobody will notice ;-) In which case you can ignore the following message.]

This website was last updated to include the episode on Friday 23rd September. Episode counts to this point are shown in the column "Last update". Since then, including Thursday's special 1000th episode, there have been 5 episodes broadcast. These are shown in the column "This week", with a total column after this.

TypeLast updateThis weekTotal
Regular9524956
Celebrity specials62163
Text Santa specials3-3
ALL101751022

So actually, there have already been more than 1000 episodes. Counting the episodes that I have documented, the 1000th episode was on 2nd September.

Maybe, ITV mean it's the 1000th regular edition of the show. I've taken out the Celebrity Specials in the following table. I'll leave in 2 of the 3 Text Santa shows, as they were broadcast on Fridays at 5pm amongst regular episodes, so maybe are included in the count. When the 2013 Text Santa show aired, it seems to be in the middle of repeat episodes, so I won't include this.

TypeLast updateThis weekTotal
Regular9524956
Text Santa specials2-2
ALL9545958

Now we're actually 42 episodes short of the milestone. The only way I can think of making up the difference is through missing or unaired episodes. As mentioned on other pages, I think there might be 6 unaired episodes. A further 5 episodes are missing from the series counts I have. If we include both of these, then we are still 30 episodes short of the magic number. I would be shocked if there are that many episodes that I'm missing. The sequence number from last Friday's show was 0965, which suggests the totals I have are out by 11 - ie. the 6 unaired and the 5 unknown episodes.

So rather than wish The Chase a happy 1000th show, I'd like to wish them a happy somewhere between 956th and 1033rd show.

Chaser Wins by Amount Banked (series 6 onwards)

There is a lot of variation in the chaser win % when compared to the amount banked. The chasers have their lowest win percentage when the players banked between £17,500 and £19,999 - they actually lose slightly more times than they win. The reason why they have a lower win %, is because on average they are having to chase higher targets. This bracket, and the ones on either side, should correspond with 3 or 4 good players getting through having taken the middle offer.

When facing the largest jackpots, £50,000 and above, the chasers win 71% of the time against an average score of 16.6. These numbers are almost identical to when the jackpot is between £12,500 and £14,999.

In the next highest category, £40,000 - £49,999, the chasers have struggled a little. Winning only 59% of shows, with an identical average target as for £50,000+ when they win 71% of the time. But in the £30,000 - £39,999 bracket, they perform very well. They have a similar win % to the £7,500 - £9,999 group, but on average have had to chase a target of 2 points higher.

There are 4 episodes from this series that I don't have this data for - 2 for Jenny, and 1 each for Paul and Mark. This will only have a slight effect on the table. Looking at the episodes in question, Paul and Jenny are likely to see a slight improvement. Whilst Mark is likely to see a small decrease as he scored 15 when chasing a target of 17.

To greatly improve your chance of winning the chase, appear on a Thursday, where your chance of winning goes up from 25% to 41%! You have a slightly better chance of winning if you appear on Tuesday or Wednesday. Fridays and Mondays are the days to avoid, with only a 12% chance of winning on a Friday.

Although obviously, it's unlikely ITV will know what day the show they are about to record is broadcast, and the players certainly won't have any choice as to which show they appear in and when it is shown.

This data is likely to be biased. It doesn't seem that episodes are broadcast in strict sequential order. With the order changed either to make sure there are only 1 or 2 player wins each week, or to make sure as many chasers as possible are appearing each week. So far, there have been 177 weeks where 5 new episodes were broadcast. 126 of these weeks had just 1 win for the team and a further 48 had 2 wins for the team. There hasn't been a week where the team won more than twice. There have only been 3 weeks, where out of the 5 episodes, the team didn't win any of them.
  • Week commencing 11/07/2010 - series 2, episodes 35-39.
