Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

I've got nothing for Tampa, so I'll just guess I'm 0 for 5 :(

I couldn't win a random drawing if I was the only entrant...

At least I have my name in the pool for Millionaire!

Re: 2015 World Quizzing Championships

Brutal, just brutal.

My first time, but will do again. Should've had about five more than I did, but with the long winded questions I talked myself out of a few correct answers.

Not the score I was hoping for...just wait until next year.

Re: Familiar face on Millionaire

OK, finally putting this in the right place. Went down to audition this morning. Passed the test, did the face-to-face interview, and then made it to the screen test. I feel like I did really, really well and am cautiously very optimistic. I am in pretty much the same boat. I got to the screen test...

Re: Nation's Brightest

I'm doing Millionaire on Wednesday morning, so I might have to put this one off a bit until I get my frowny email. I don't want to dash any hopes, but I was there Thursday and got the happy email on Friday; one-day turnaround seems to be the new normal as learned from the Familiar Face on Millionai...

Re: Familiar face on Millionaire

People line up for that, get there early. They can usually test many at a time on the road, but each session of maybe 200 people takes a little while.

Re: Familiar face on Millionaire

Tested yesterday, received email notice I'm in the pool today!!!!! Congrats! That's a quick turnaround! That's how it worked for me - auditioned, received the "you're in the pool" email the next day, and got the call six days later. I hope you get the call right away, Triviawayne. When were you on?...

It's Boston, Fenway is probably the only landmark that isn't a landmark because somebody got killed there.
Washington was killed there on May 27, 1955.

Re: 500 Questions [POSSIBLE SPOILERS]

- 1. Took the in person text (same time as Doug Molitor) in 1979. Did not pass. Very sad. 2. Did get on the call list for a different show. Show was cancelled before I was called. I guess you auditioned for the short lived J! revival, which taped its last show sometime in early-mid February 1979(ai...

Re: Friends competing on Jeopardy?

My best guess is they would go with the simple solution; one of the friends plays on the first tape slot, the other is scheduled for the last. As we've found on another thread, only 5% of all players win three games, so the odds of that particular player winning three games while a friend is there w...

Re: What's the length of the average championship reign?

There are also the outliers of Chu and Collins to pump up the number a tiny bit. I wondered about the effect of "super-champs" on the average, and whether they made the average significantly different from the median. I'm not much of a math guy, but I doubt it would have much of an effect; I just w...

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

Just because it has been a while, doesn't mean they won't again. It doesn't have to be regular games, could be college.

I was just pointing out that there could be many reasons we haven't heard anything for Tampa yet.
