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

Forget "Millionaire"
9 December 2001 | by See all my reviews

If you love the way "Millionaire" is played on ABC, you will forget all about it after watching "Weakest Link."

Weakest Link first aired on NBC in mid 2000, it's in it's second season. It stars Anne Robinson (voted the meanest host on television by BBC)

The game starts with 8 players. The first round is 2 and a half minutes and decreases 10 seconds each round after. The objective is to get 8 questions CORRECTLY AND IN A ROW to get your $125,000. You can bank earlier if you want (but money value is much less if you bank too early)

At the end of the round the real fun begins. You vote off the person you "think" is the Weakest Link. Once votes are revealed, Anne insults the players. It's so funny, you'll laugh with the audiance in the background!

"Link" is on Sunday and Monday nights on NBC and Friday nights on the PAX network.
