Television’s most cutthroat quiz show returns for a very special episode when the stars of The Block go head to head on Weakest Link this Tuesday,
Comedian and actress Magda Szubanski is back as host of the smash-hit quiz which returned to Australian TV screens earlier this year after a 19-year absence.
Lining up to put their knowledge to the test are eight famous faces from The Block, the No.1 entertainment program on television at the moment: judges Shaynna Blaze, Neale Whitaker and Darren Palmer; foreman Keith Schleiger; and fan favourites Mitch and Mark and Alisa and Lysandra.
Quizmaster Magda will put them through their paces as they compete, backstab and embarrass themselves in the hope of winning a huge cash jackpot of up to $250,000 for their chosen charity.
Our Block players must work together to bank the maximum amount of prizemoney available. They will take turns to answer general knowledge questions and build chains of correct answers. Consecutive correct answers greatly increase the value of the chain, while incorrect answers break the chain and force them to start over on the lowest rung, with the least amount of money.
At the end of each round, contestants vote to eliminate the one they consider to be the weakest link in the chain. The one who receives the highest number of votes then leaves the game as Magda delivers the killer line: “You are the Weakest Link. Goodbye!”
