The Weakest Link - The Weakest Link (Australian game show) - Netflix
The Weakest Link was an Australian game show based on the successful UK format, which aired from 5 February 2001 until 22 April 2002 and was broadcast on the Seven Network. Presented by Cornelia Frances, the show featured nine contestants competing for a potential prize of $100,000. Airing twice weekly in primetime, on Mondays and Fridays (and later Thursdays), it received modest ratings until its cancellation in 2002. The Monday edition indirectly competed against the more-popular Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? (which airs at a later time on another network) and the Friday edition served as a lead-in to the AFL telecasts in Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia only. Later on in the year, The Weakest Link was moved to Thursdays at 7:30pm. In 2002, ratings deteriorated to the point that the show aired only once a week, leading to its cancellation in April the same year. The show was produced in the Seven Network's South Melbourne headquarters.
The Weakest Link - Format - Netflix
The format of the Australian series was identical to that of the British version apart from some slight time differences on rounds. The first round lasted for 2 minutes and 30 seconds as opposed to 3 minutes on the British version, and each round thereafter was reduced by 10 seconds (meaning a time limit of 80 seconds for the triple stakes round). As with the British version, any money banked in round eight was trebled (e.g. if the contestants bank $1,000 then $3,000 is added to the final total). The money tree was as follows: The voice-over was Marcus Irvine, while the adjudicator was Alan Mason, the contestant revealed as The Mole in 2000.
