How do contestants play Weakest Link

Eight strangers are put together to answer several rounds of general knowledge trivia questions for cash. With each correct answer given in a row, more money is added to the pot. 

If the chain of correct answers is broken with a player missing a question, the prize drops back down to $0. If a player is worried they'll answer a question incorrectly, they can say, "Bank!" before it's asked and save what the group has earned up until that point. In that case, the chain also starts again at $0 — but thankfully, with their previous money still intact.

After each round of questions, players then choose a player that they deem the "weakest link" of the chain to vote off. The player with the most votes is eliminated and gets the conflicting honor of hearing Lynch say the age-old phrase, "You are the Weakest Link. Goodbye." 

The group dynamics of the show create the perfect atmosphere for juicy backstabbing. If a Contestant answers every question correctly, it could lead to other competitors voting them off to simply terminate their biggest competition. But ultimately, players must work together to get the most money possible.

The last player left standing after the final round is deemed the "Strongest Link" and takes home the group's total earnings (with a potential winning pool of $1 million).
