more real wrong and funny weakest link answers

The funniest and best list of Weakest Link answers, continued. (Here are more funny Weakest Link answers.) Contestants from the BBC's Weakest Link quiz game-show are asked general-knowlege questions under pressure, which produces some very funny wrong answers (that's their excuse..)

The Weakest Link show is still shown on BBC TV and is an excellent source of funny answers and amusing material for speeches, presentations, training diversions, etc. The answers are funny in themselves, and also illustrate the peculiar workings of the brain, and how people don't always know what they think they know, or say what they mean to say.

These wrong and highly amusing answers are not necessarily an indication of brain-power or intelligence, they are more an example of how pressures of time and situation can cause people to make mistakes. The FEAR acronym provides a useful perspective.

If you want the correct answers for these questions - some Weakest Link answers are not actually very easy - see the correct answers page.
