Anne RobinsonWhen NBC recently revived the TV quiz show The Weakest Link, they put Jane Lynch at the helm. While Jane has undoubtedly done well in her new role as host, some have found themselves wondering about the show’s original host, Anne Robinson.

It’s been two decades since Anne Robinson first uttered the immortal phrase: “You are the weakest link. Goodbye!” It’s been twenty years since Anne Robinson first introduced us to her school matron alter-ego on the BBC’s daytime quiz show, The Weakest Link.

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.

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.
