Seeking WWTBAM Plus One for 8/18

I'm scheduled to tape Who Wants to Be a Millionaire this Thursday August 18. My Plus One has a conflict and can't make it. Any locals or close by (California, Arizona, etc) available for that date? Please PM me for details.

Thanks!

Re: TCONA 5 (2015)

UPDATE 7/31: THE ROOM HAS BEEN TAKEN I have an extra room at the Tropicana because there was a chance I needed two rooms, but now I need only one. Before I cancel the second room, I thought I'd offer it here first. The hotel appears to be sold out for at least part of TCONA. If you're looking for a ...

Re: Thursday, May 30, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

As long as I'm here before the game is archived, I'll take a stab at the game stats. I've always wondered how self-aware I'd be if I got on the show, so here are my guesses. I think I'm reasonably close for my stats, less so for the combined stats. Feel free to mock me later. Me: 17000 Coryat; 21 R,...

Re: Thursday, May 30, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

The game hasn't aired here yet, but I thought I'd chime in now. If I'd were sitting at home, I'd love this FJ. It's exactly the type of clue I like. Before Alex was done reading the clue, I knew it had to be von Braun ... or the other guy. I forgot the category for a second, but I regained focus and...

Re: Dick Clark dies at 82

Now I'll have to think of a new team name for pub quiz at the end of the year. One of my faves from a couple of years ago was "Dick Clark's New Years Strokin' Eve". My teammates cringed when I said it, so I knew it was a winner.

Re: Your time starts again ... now

I later found out that there would be a couple of rounds of callbacks, in addition to the initial audition. I could carve out time for the audition, but not two more meetings before early May. A four-day paid trip to London, with some spending cash, held great appeal. They're still holding auditions...

Re: Your time starts again ... now

I know this is extremely short notice, but maybe someone can take advantage of this. The show is already auditioning potential contestants. LA-area folks who are available at noon or 5pm tomorrow can request an audition . You'll need to be available May 11 to May 16 to shoot in the UK and have a pa...

Re: Watson vs People Not Married to Schlie

Todd credited one answer that would have been negged on the show (an extra letter was added to a movie title). He acknowledged the answer was wrong but allowed it because it was the first time in about 25 games anyone had come close. Any recollection of what the clue was? That's a low get rate ... ...

Watson vs People Not Married to Schlie

This is terribly late, but I thought I'd add just a few things that might interest the board. Andrea has already given an extensive recap; here are a few other notes/observations. Nico Martinez, 2005 College champ, was on the Stanford team. He's at Stanford Law now. I believe one of the Berkeley pla...

Re: New season tapings delayed

I seem to recall that participants in the Watson tuneup matches liked the job Todd Crain did. Perhaps some of the sparring partners could chime in? He was a good host for someone working with almost zero audience, but he's no Alex at reading the clues. But it's not like I was wishing Alex were ther...
