Someone has crunched the numbers to work out who is the best chaser on quiz show The Chase.
Yep, that's right - someone has sat through 14 seasons and hundreds of episodes to note down every winner since the show began in 2009.
So who is the chaser that contestants should fear the most?
Well, it turns out that none other than The Beast himself, aka Mark Labbett, is the most fearsome chaser and the one you've got the least chance of beating if you end up on the show.
The Chase fan site One Question Shootout has created a detailed system to come up with the very best chaser.
Although Shaun Wallace, Anne Hegerty, Paul Sinha and Jenny Ryan have all had the best performances in individual seasons, Labbett comes out on top overall.
Labbett and Wallace have been with the show since it kicked off, with the other chasers joining in the following years.
So basically, The Beast does have a bit of an advantage over the likes of Darragh Ennis, who only joined in the thirteenth season.
And Labbett has got plenty of quizzing experience prior to his stint on the popular ITV show.
Back in 2006 he appeared on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? but, somewhat surprisingly, failed to make it all the way to the top prize.
Labbett crashed out of the quiz with £32,000 after being stumped by the £64,000 question: "The best-selling novel Miss Smilla's Feeling For Snow is set chiefly in which country?"
His choices were between Canada, Denmark, Switzerland and Nepal, and he used his last lifeline to narrow it down to Canada or Denmark.
Labbett reckoned the name 'Smilla' didn't appear to be of Danish origin, so he plumped for Canada, which was incorrect.
The quiz lover hasn't just turned up on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?, however. He's also appeared on Channel 5's now defunct quiz BrainTeaser, Countdown and BBC One's SUDO-Q.
And he's been on Mastermind twice - once in 1999 where his specialist subject was the Olympic Games and then again 2000 when he chose The Simpsons as his specialist subject.
As well as appearing in the UK version of The Chase, Labbett has also competed in the USA and Australia spin-offs.
