The lowest amount won on the daytime version was $1,000, while the highest was $53,000. The highest amount won on a Celebrity Edition of the show was when LeVar Burton won a “Star Trek Stars” edition with a pot of $167,500.

But what happened to the indomitable presenter once she left The Weakest Link for good? After more than 15,000 contestants, 1700 shows and over 235,000 questions asked, Anne announced she was quitting in 2012 and BBC bosses decided to scrap the iconic show.

The game begins with a team of nine contestants, who take turns answering general knowledge questions within a time limit to create chains of nine correct answers in a row. At the end of each round, the players then vote one contestant, “the weakest link”, out of the game.

13 episodesProduction on the new season, set for 13 episodes, will begin later this year.

Jane LynchJane Lynch — who hosts the network’s Hollywood Game Night — will serve as host for the new version, which NBC says will begin production later in the year. The network has ordered 13 episodes of the show, which is based on a British format.

Unlike the original version, the top prize money available increases after each round. The top prize money starts at $25,000 in round 1 and increases by $25,000 per round until round 4. The top prize money in rounds 5 and 6 is set at $250,000 and $500,000, respectively.

2000The quick-fire general knowledge quiz The Weakest Link was launched on 14 August 2000.

What is the most money ever banked on Weakest Link?

$43,000In the recently aired episode of ‘Weakest Link’, the contestants managed to bank only a measly $43,000 through the course of the game. The winner, Tracy, managed to take home the prize money after her opponent Cecil failed to answer a question correctly.

So every now and then a player who feels that they might get their question wrong will ‘bank’ that pot before being asked the question. Banking it transfers the balance at that point into the prize money available to the winner. Then if he/she does indeed get the question wrong they will not have lost anything.
