Jane Lynch and her spicy zingers were back for the second night in a row this week, leaving fans delighted at the opportunity to watch 'Weakest Link' on two consecutive nights. The latest episode featured eight contestants who were vying to get their hands on the potential $1 million prize! But in order to take home the prize, they will first have to answer some trivia questions correctly and endure Jane's witty sass.

On tonight's episode, John took home the prize money of $69k after defeating Tiffany in an intensely competitive final round. While John pretty much cruised his way to the final round without any hiccups, Tiffany, however, had her fair share of competition. In the initial rounds, Tiffany's performance was bad, as she got plenty of questions wrong, and failed to bank the money. Despite Tiffany's unimpressive performance, she managed to cling to her spot on the show by diverting the attention on other contestants who performed equally badly.

But as the number of contestants began paring down, Tiffany began getting stronger with each round. She mad an impressive turnaround by becoming the strongest link for three consecutive rounds. After both Tiffany and John voted out their fellow competitor Eliana, the duo got to the final round. In this round, the person who answered the most questions correctly amongst the five presented to them, would be declared the winner and take home their prize money of $69k they amassed through the course of the show.

Since Tiffany won the earlier round, she was given a chance to pick the person who would take the first shot at answering the questions. She decided on letting John go first. To her surprise, John managed to perform way better than her. She fumbled while answering two questions which resulted in John winning. Fans were happy to see John win the money. A fan tweeted, "JOHN FOR THE WIN! I love how Tiffany showed good sportsmanship by congratulating him and the fact that @janemarielynch was very cordial by telling her to take her time on the final question. See y’all next Tuesday! #WeakestLink." "Good for John. 69K will go a long way for his next horror film. #WeakestLink," wrote a fan. Another fan expressed, "Congrats to John on the win tonight at the #WeakestLink!"
