This was the phrase that became part of the pop culture zeitgeist almost immediately after the popular British game show "The Weakest Link" hit the United States airwaves.

More popular than the game show itself was the show's host, Anne Robinson. Robinson quickly became the no nonsense host, and was dubbed the Queen of Mean for her iconic phrase when someone lost.

The woman was ruthless and she didn't care who knew it. But, to be honest, that's what made her so iconic. The show debuted on NBC back in April 2001, but unfortunately was cancelled a year later. We all remember Anne for her legendary role, but where did she go?

Where she's been: Anne's been keeping busy ever since her stint on "The Weakest Link," having recently stepped down as the host of the British TV show, "Watchdog," where she's served as host for the past 15 years.

The now 72-year-old host has also been very public about any plastic surgery work she's received over the years. "I run, I have facials, I eat an awful lot of salmon and salad. If you want to expose bare arms in primetime, there's no choice." Talk about goals!

Nevertheless, it's good to see Anne continues to have the amazing wit she had on "The Weakest Link."
