Summary

The Weakest Link is a television game show where a team of contestants answer general knowledge questions to win a cash jackpot. The team must answer questions correctly to create chains of correct answers within a time limit. At the end of each round, the players vote one contestant, "The Weakest Link," out of the game. The format has been licensed across the world, with many countries producing their own series of the programme, making it the second most popular international franchise. The show was first aired in the UK on BBC Two in 2000. The host of the original UK series is Anne Robinson, who was chosen to be firm with contestants but began to act harsh and nasty to them. The format distributor BBC Worldwide changed the rules to allow international hosts to be nicer and more relaxed to the contestants. The revived 2020 US version has a top prize that increases after each round and uses a buzzer added to each contestant's podium. The latest French version (aired from 2014 to 2015) also does not use the clock and money tree for the final round. The Dutch version that started in May 2019 saw round 8 cut from the format after airing the show for two weeks. The format is distributed by BBC Studios, the commercial arm of the BBC, and produced by different production companies. Most versions have disciplinarian female hosts, with exceptions being comedians. In Croatia, the quiz reached its 1,008th episode in May 2010 and is the only version to have reached as many episodes.
