The Chase net worths: This is how much money all the chasers actually have
Yes, they are millionaires
If you say that The Chase isn’t one of your favourite daytime TV shows, you’re lying. Recently the show has smashed records for viewers, with millions tuning in to watch it. But on a show where they give away thousands of pounds regularly, and the people are some of the smartest in Britain – you might be wondering the net worths of the chasers on The Chase.
From making serious bank in their swanky professions before TV, to using their quiz fame to be on every TV show under the sun – the chasers have become millionaires. I mean, they probably spend all day revising and working so it’s not like they haven’t earned it. Here are all the net worths of the chasers on The Chase.
Anne Hegarty ‘The Governess’ – £2.3million
Anne Hegarty is probably the chaser who has become the biggest household name off the back of the show. Most notably she went on I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, where it is thought she was paid £75k – but ITV hasn’t confirmed this.
She has also appeared on Mastermind, Are You an Egghead? and Brain of Britain to show off her general knowledge. She has done presenting too, hosting gameshow Britain’s Brightest Family, and has been in the Panto! All this has given Anne a healthy net worth of over £2million.
Mark Labbett ‘The Beast’ – £1.6million
The Beast has appeared on the show the most amount of times, so is probably paid a hefty amount from The Chase.
On top of this, he’s been on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire not once, but twice. He won £32,000 on the show, and then the same amount again when he went on Millionaire Live, a live version of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, in 2005. He’s appeared on lots of other quizzing shows such as Mastermind, Countdown and Grand Slam and some panel shows.
He’s also done reality TV shows such as Sugar Free Farm and Celebrity Supply Teacher.
Jenny Ryan ‘The Vixen’ – £3.2million
Jenny “The Vixen” Ryan is shockingly rich – worth over £3million. She’s earned her money after she made her TV debut on University Challenge in 2003. As well as The Chase, she’s been on Mastermind, Only Connect, Fifteen to One and The Weakest Link to show off her quizzing skills.
But that’s not all, she’s used her fame to appear on a whole load of panel shows, do countless TV interviews and she went on Celebrity MasterChef. Jenny has also worked as a singer, and appeared on The X Factor: Celebrity.
Shaun Wallace ‘The Dark Destroyer’ – £3.7million
The Dark Destroyer, Shaun Wallace, should probably rename himself The Dark Horse – as he’s the richest of all the chasers. He’s made serious bank both on and off screen.
After qualifying as a barrister in 1984, Shaun has taken part in hearings across England, Wales and Scotland. On top of this career, in 2004, he became a champion of the BBC quiz Mastermind and has also competed on Fifteen to One and The Weakest Link. But Shaun didn’t end there, in 2018 he released his own autobiography called “Chasing the Dream” and has been on other reality shows such as Don’t Rock The Boat and Catchphrase.
Paul Sinha ‘The Sinnerman’ – £1million
Paul Sinha may have the lowest of all the known The Chase net worths, but that doesn’t mean he has any less of an impressive CV. The former GP is now a comedian and has had tour dates up and down the country.
As well as The Chase, he has also appeared on a number of other quiz shows – such as The Weakest Link, University Challenge: The Professionals, Are You An Egghead? and Mastermind. He’s also become a regular TV personality on panel shows and through interviews.
Darragh Ennis ‘The Menace’ – unknown
Darragh “The Menace” Ennis is the most recent new addition to The Chase lineup, after Jenny “The Vixen” Ryan joined the show back in 2015. 40-year-old Darragh Ennis is an Irish scientist and researcher, who lives in Oxford. He was so impressive when he went on the show back in 2017 that the producers snapped him up and gave him a job. As of yet, his net worth is not known.
