We sat down to watch The Chaser's Road Trip: Trains, Planes and Automobiles last night, innocently thinking it was going to give us a glimpse into the lives of brain-boxes, Shaun Wallace, Mark Labbett and Anne Hegerty.
And...err... a glimpse it certainly gave us, just not the sort of glimpse we expected!
During the show, the Chasers were seen heading off to Miami beach after a long day of investigating whether their intelligence was innate, or taught.
In what the narrator dubs "a much needed moment of solitude" we saw Shaun doing some exercise on the beach while Anne chilled with a book on nearby terrace, and Mark frolicked in the sea, Baywatch style.
But it was Shaun's attire which really caught people's eye - lets just say, he didn't leave much to the imagination.
Yep, as the group piled into a car to visit some Miami locals, Shaun's extremely tight trunks could be seen in all their glory, as he teamed them with a figure-hugging orange gym top.
"Jesus Shaun, put it away man #TheChasersRoadTrip," one viewer wrote.
As another joked: "Now we know why Shaun really got given the name 'The Dark Destroyer'".
A third chipped in: "Enjoying The Chasers Road Trip......but Shaun's shorts......definitely post watershed."
That wasn't all we saw of Shaun, either, as another moment in the show saw him taking a dip in the bath... ooh err.
Believe it or not, the three-part series actually has a serious premise. The idea is for the super brainy quizzers to test their knowledge in the real world, in a bid to find out if they are really as smart as they think.
In order to answer this question, the trio travel the world and test their knowledge against on child geniuses, AI robots and even great apes, to see how they fare.
And episode one, we see a lot more than Shaun's nether-region. The Chasers were also sent off to measure their intelligence against Kanzi, a Bonobo ape who is so smart it can understand English, and communicate with humans by using images and symbols on a Lexigram.
Teasing the rest of the season, ITV add that there is a lot more to come, too.
"Travelling the UK, they go head-to-head with child geniuses in order to weigh up to what degree intelligence is innate or can be developed," the channel says.
"Finally, in Japan, our quiz masters encounter some of the world's cleverest computers and the very latest in artificial intelligence in an attempt to find out if we humans are heading for a utopian future...or are destined to be taken over by robots."
The Chasers' Road Trip: Trains, Brains and Automobiles will continue next Thursday at 9pm on ITV.
