Anne RobinsonAnne Robinson in 2001. Apart from being the host of the U.S. version of The Weakest Link, which aired between 2001 and 2002, she also ran the original U.K.-based game show. When The Weakest Link in the U.S. was canceled in 2002, Anne continued to host across the pond until retiring in 2012.

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.

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.
