THE Weakest Link fans have slammed the contestants for being “unintelligent” after viewing the “worst finale round ever” in the latest episode.
The game show only recently returned to air after being revived in 2020 with Glee alum Jane Lynch as the program’s new host.
During Monday’s new episode, eight new contestants took the stage to compete for up to $1million.
Instead of getting anywhere close to that, the winner took home just $54k after playing what fans called one of the “worst” final rounds of the show.
Toward the end, it was just Dan, Jon, and Ty working to add some big bucks to their collective bank.
They had a chance to pick up $500K in this round, but they earned only $2,500, which was the just the first step up from nothing.

“This might be the worst finale round ever,” one shocked fan tweeted.
Another wrote: “In the last round of @NBCWeakestLink I was able to answer 6 in a row correctly on my own.
“That would've been $100K alone.”
The user added: “They banked $2,500 that round,” along with a gif of host Jane saying, “Who needs Google Maps to find their way to a correct answer?”

Weakest Link returned with its season 2 premiere in March and is expected to have 13 episodes total this time around.
It was renewed for this second season in January 2021.
Jenny Groom, the Executive Vice President of Unscripted Content at NBCUniversal Television and Streaming, said in a press release at the time:
“Audiences have clearly embraced this smart, fun and completely addicting show, and it’s been a great addition to the NBC lineup.
“A huge thank you to Jane, our friends at BBC Studios, Universal Television Alternative Studio and everyone who has been instrumental in keeping the DNA of the original format intact while simultaneously adding new flourishes that make it as relevant and popular as ever.”
Jane then added: “I’m thrilled that ‘Weakest Link’ will return for another season/
“It has been my honor to bring back this classic game show loved by millions.
“I also look forward to challenging the brain power of our players while baiting them to turn against one another for the chance to win some life-changing cash.
“And, of course, for my own enjoyment, and not to mention the opportunity to say ‘You are the weakest link. Goodbye.’ several times an episode.”
The game show follows as eight contestants must learn to work together to earn as much prize money as possible during each round.
To do so, they take turns answering trivia questions, with every consectuvie correct answer increasing the prize money they’ll be banking.
“Incorrect answers break the chain and force the contestants to start over on the lowest rung with the smallest amount money,” the synopsis shares.
“At the end of each round, contestants vote to eliminate the fellow contestant they consider to be the ‘Weakest Link’ in the chain.”
