Storyline

In this hybrid of "Inquizition" and "Survivor," contestants test their trivial mettle as a team and against each other. After each round of play, the team votes out the most expendable member, who instantly gets the biting send off of "You are the Weakest Link. Goodbye." In the end, only one player goes home with any money. Written by ZeroG1

Best game show ever!
26 November 2001 | by (London,Canada) – See all my reviews

In my opinion "The Weakest Link" is one of the best and meanest game shows ever. The game goes like this, the show starts off with 8 contestants. Round by round one person gets voted off as the weakest link. After the voting procedure Anne Robinson makes rude comments about how dumb the people are. If you don't like the questions on Who Wants to be a Millionaire then you won't like the Weakest Link.
