The IQ of the pursuers: Mark Labbett
Mark, also known as The Beast, has an IQ of 155 – which is way above average.
The average IQ is between 90 and 110.
Mark’s IQ is more than enough to get you into the high-IQ society cafeteria.
The 55-year-old believes he is the smartest of the pursuers.
He says on the show, “Who is the smartest of the three of us? Me. And why am I saying that? Because I believe it and it’s true, and my ego says it’s true.
“The others are welcome to prove me wrong, but … good luck guys.”
What is the IQ of The Chaser Anne Hegerty?
Anne was named Most Successful of All Chasers by ITV with an overall win of 82.4 percent on The Chase.
Although she didn’t really reveal her IQ, a fan of The Chase tried to figure out who was the smartest chaser by figuring out who won the most regularly.
They watched nearly 900 episodes of the Bradley Walsh hosted quiz show and calculated how many wins and losses each chaser had.
What is very impressive is that Anne had 100 percent accuracy in 23 shows.
She has the highest number of clean sweeps, which means she doesn’t have a wrong question in the final chase.
Anne, 62, credits her autism to her success on the show.
She says, “I think I’m a better quizzer because I’m autistic.
“I think autism makes it easier for me to remember things.”
Close behind Anne, however, is Paul ‘The Sinnerman’ Sinha, who has a share of the profits of 82.3 percent, which is only 0.1 percent of the front runner Anne.
In third place is Mark, followed by Jenny Ryan, aka The Vixen.
The study brought Shaun to last place with an average of 75.1 percent.

The IQ of the Pursuit: Shaun Wallace
Shaun has shown he’s embarked on the road trip that an “IQ of a million” doesn’t make you superior.
The 60-year-old said he found out that there is more to intelligence than he previously thought.
Of his co-stars, he said, “I know I’m smart, but I’ve found that I’m different than the other two because there are different forms of intelligence, such as having emotional intelligence. ”
He added, “The mere fact that you have an IQ of a million doesn’t make you superior because you have to use your intellect in different ways and in different situations.
“You have to have this empathy, it’s just me, just compared to my companions.”
Shaun has yet to reveal his actual IQ.
How to check your own IQ
A person’s IQ can be calculated through an intelligence test.
The average IQ is by definition 100.
If you get a score above 100, you have done better than the average person.
Generally, IQ tests are done one at a time with a trained psychologist.
The second episode of the Road Trip chasers, ITV1
The three-part series follows the “three titans of trivia” on their journey around the world to compete with child geniuses, great apes and the latest AI and robot technology.
In the second episode, the Chasers travel to Great Britain and compete against child geniuses to weigh up the extent to which intelligence is innate or can be developed.
But while some of Britain’s brightest kids impress Anne, Mark and Shaun, they are shocked to learn that they themselves have something surprising in common that could reveal the secret of the trio’s amazing memories.
The Chasers Road Trip: Planes, Trains, and Automobiles will continue on Thursday, January 28th at 9 p.m. on ITV1.
