Contestants on the hit television show ‘The Weakest Link’ would win more if they banked their earnings after each right answer or held their nerve until six right responses, mathematicians said on January 16, 2002. The show tests the wits of eight contestants who win more money for the group with each correct answer, but winnings are only carried over to the next round if contestants bank them before hearing the next question. British host Anne Robinson is pictured in an undated photo with contestants (L-R) Dr. Sean Kenniff, Richard Hatch and Susan Hawk.
The same program is run in arabic by the Lebanon-based Future TV.
