Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

The weakest link

I watched this tonight and the person who answered all the questions was named the weakest link only because the 2 final contestants didn’t have to compete against him. I would think that it would be only fair to have the person that is in the lead to be exempt and have the 3 vote off one of the weaker contestants excluding the one who had the most questions right. I won’t watch this show again unless changes are made. As far as I am concerned you might as well play stupid in this game and you will win.
