George!!! I love George. I wrote to him and he sent me an autographed picture, thanking me for being his "strongest link"!! Now he is the announcer on The Price is Right.

Plus, his background as a stand-up comic made his insults that much funnier.

Anne Robinson. OK I didn't like her at first. But once I figured out her whole shtick of being very serious and insulting was all an act and was meant to be funny then I warmed up to her. She was very funny and it was all just done in fun but a lot of the contestants didn't get that and took her insults way too seriously. George Gray was just boring.

Anne was the best, when the show went to daily syndication and I watched George as host I was very disappointed, he seemed so out of place, also I think he stinks as an announcer on The Price is Right.

I liked them both but preferred Anne. And you got twice as much gameplay with the primetime version.

Don't remember the Gray version, but Anne is unbeatable, and her style could not be trumped. I can't imagine any other host fitting that show any better.

My favorite host of The Weakest Link was Anne Robinson because she is cool and had a lot of uniqueness in her and not only that she was really funny when she would send the contestants home when they would get voted off. I often wonder what had happened to Anne Robinson after The Weakest Link ended in the UK and America. Because she had written a book at the time The Weakest Link was popular in America
