John/Lisa: "Here are the eight/six contestants/celebrities who will take part in today/tonight's show. One of them will walk away with up to $1,000,000/$75,000/$100,000 (for their charity). The rest will leave (with nothing), as round by round, they're voted off as The Weakest Link!"
Anne/George: "Welcome…to (a special [name of] edition of) The Weakest Link! Any of the eight/six people in the studio here tonight/today could win up to $1,000,000/$75,000/$100,000 (for the charity of their choice). They don't know each other; however, if they want to win that money, they'll have to work as a team…"
- GENERAL: …but seven/five of them will leave with nothing…"
- CELEBRITY: "…however, only one of them will make it to the end…"
REST OF SPIEL: "…as round by round we eliminate the player voted The Weakest Link! Let's meet the team!"
"Now the rules, in each round the aim is to answer enough questions correctly to reach your $125,000/$12,500/$25,000 target within the time limit. There are eight/six of you, so the fastest way to reach that target is to create a chain of eight/six correct answers. Get your question wrong, and you break the chain and lose all the money in the chain, but if you say the word "Bank" before the question is asked, the money is safe; however, you'll start a brand new chain. Remember, at the end of the round only money that has been banked can be carried over to the next round. The first round lasts for 2:30 (2½ minutes)/1:45. The order you'll be playing in was randomly selected before the show. We'll start with the player in the first position…that's (you) (insert name)."
"Let's play…The Weakest Link!"
"The first question is worth $1,000/$250."
"Start the clock."
ANNE/GEORGE: "(Insert name), (insert question)?" - When a contestant answers the question
ANNE/GEORGE: "(Insert name). CONTESTANT: Bank. ANNE/GEORGE: (Insert question)?" - When a contestant says the word "BANK" before answering the question.
"Correct." - When a contestant got the correct answer
"No, (insert correct answer)." - When a contestant got the wrong answer
"(Insert correct answer)." - When a contestant doesn't know the answer
- "I cannot complete the question." [if the host does not complete the question when time is up]
- "The correct answer is…(answer)." [if the host does complete the question when time is up]
"That is the correct answer, but you were out of time."
"That bank was too late/out of time."
"That bank was too early."
"And in that round you've banked (insert cash amount)."
"You reached and banked your $125,000/$12,500/$25,000 target (within the time limit)."
"That money will go through to the next round, but one of you (most certainly) will not/won't!"
"It's time to vote off…The Weakest Link!"
"Voting over, time to reveal who you think is The Weakest Link."
"We have a tie. When the vote is tied… the strongest link has to cast the deciding vote… and in that last round, the strongest link was (insert name)."
"Statistically, the strongest/weakest link in the last round was (insert name), but it's votes that count."
"(insert name)/With (insert number) votes… You ARE the weakest link. Goodbye!"
"Round X (team), and so far you've banked (insert amount), there's/there are X of you left. (Another) 10/15 seconds (is) coming off the/your clock/time."
- "We'll start with the strongest link from the last round. That's (you) (insert name)."
- "You've voted off the strongest link from the last round, so we'll have to start with the second strongest link from the last round. That's (you) (insert name)." - If the strongest link is voted off.
"Round 7/5 (team), and so far you've banked (insert amount). (insert 2 names), it's just the two of you left and this time you'll have only 90/45 seconds. Whatever you bank in this round will be doubled and will be added to your total to make up your grand prize money. $250,000/$25,000 is at stake right now."
"In Round 7/5, you have the chance to double what you bank. Potentially, there's $250,000/$25,000 to be won. The question is, who is least likely to help you in raising the bank balance?"
"We'll double it and add it to the bank from the previous rounds which means you have today/tonight a grand total of (insert amount)."
"(insert 2 names), you made it into the final round where (insert amount) is up for grabs, but only one of you will be able to take that money home. You'll now be playing against each other head-to-head. I'll ask alternating questions, best of five/three. Whoever gets the most questions correctly wins; it's as simple as that. If there's a tie after 5/3 questions, we'll go for Sudden Death until we have a winner. So (insert two names), for (insert amount), let's play… The Weakest Link!"
"(insert name), as the strongest link in the last round, you have the choice on who'll go first."
"I will/I'll let (insert name) go first." - Contestant
"That is the correct answer." - When a contestant gets the correct answer during Head-to-Head match.
"No, the correct answer is (insert correct answer)." - When a contestant gets the wrong answer during Head-to-Head match.
- "…you need to answer this question correctly to remain in the game." - Anne Robinson
- "…if you answer this question correctly, you have won." - Anne Robinson
- "…you need to get this correct; otherwise, (insert name) wins. - George Gray
- "…if you get this right, you've won." - George Gray
"After five/three questions, your scores are tied. So now we go into a Sudden Death situation. I'll continue asking questions./Questions will continue in pairs. (First player), if you get your question right then (Second player) has to get their question right, or they lose. And (second player), if (first player) gets their question wrong, and you get your question right, you win."
"So (players names), Let's play Sudden Death!"
"That means (insert name) you are tonight's/today's strongest link and you go away with (insert cash amount). (Insert name)…"
- GENERAL: "…you leave with nothing."
- CELEBRITY SHOWS: "…you will just go away."
"Seven have made it this far but only one of them will win, find out who…"
"Six players remain but any one of them will be voted off next, find out who…"
"One of these five players has reached their end. Find out who…
"Only two of these three people will move on to the final round. One more player will take that walk of shame…"
"Only one of these two people will take that money home; the other will leave with nothing. The final round will decide it all…"
"…when we return to… The Weakest Link!"
"Welcome back… to The Weakest Link!" - Host (coming back from the Commercial Break)
