The Winning Moment caught on camera

Earlier this year, a special 10th Anniversary edition of the BBCTV game show The Weakest Link was recorded with nine competitors from alternative World Cup competitions coming up against The Queen of Mean, Anne Robinson, which is a challenge probably tougher than any World Championship!

The British Beard Club was asked by the BBC for a contestant and charismatic and lively member Jimmy Cairney from Brighton, who was at the Brighton WBMC in 2007, was chosen. Jimmy sailed though the early rounds, keeping Anne on her toes and made it to the final round. As Anne was reading out the make-or-break fourth question, Jimmy's face broke into a smile when he realised he knew the answer!

Thanks to Jimmy's confident bearded winning performance, The British Beard Club Web site lit up that evening with new Membership Applications. So we owe Jimmy a big thank-you for being a great ambassador for the Club, and Jimmy owes me a drink!
