Re: FJs for the 4/20/15 week

5/5, which rarely happens, but this was the second time in a few weeks.

Better yet, all instagets except Monday when I started with snap chat before getting Instagram about half way through.

Re: List of J! champions by total winnings (regular games + tournaments)?

A few years ago, I saw a list of everyone in the "Jeopardy Hall of Fame" right on their website. That gave a list of money winners, although not adjusted for the doubling.

If they still have it there, and if you find nothing else, this may have to do.

There is no schedule, just a list of cities. Dates/times TBD at a later date.

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Eastern), April 14, 2015

don't worry, I fully get that it's a random draw of those that passed, that have also picked the same audition city. Just a note - this might be true, or it might be that they do some screening before (or instead of) the random draw for each audition city. Here's part of the email I got: Only those...

jjwaymee don't worry, I fully get that it's a random draw of those that passed, that have also picked the same audition city. I've passed 5 overall, and now 4 in a row and have never had the in person audition. I'm in the pool for the upcoming season of Millionaire, and yeah, would love to get that ...

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Eastern), April 14, 2015

Well this is lovely, so glad I made the cut even with the technical problems. First I couldn't see the first two questions. I figured I didn't get the 35 but was darn close and that could've made the difference. So I emailed the tech line and got a generic reply that had nothing to do with the quest...

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Eastern), April 14, 2015

So the exact same think happened to me--first two answers were blanked, third one showed up just before time. Scoring the test myself, it seems as if I got a 40. I also received the same email that the above poster did. Should I retake? Would getting a higher score improve my chances? For that matt...

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Eastern), April 14, 2015

I emailed right after the test, but before I scored myself to realize I passed. This is what happened so far: My first two questions, there was only a blank blue screen where the clue should've been. I had no opportunity to answer those. If my score was not within 2 of the cutoff, I understand, but ...

This makes 4 in a row and 5 overall, with no in-person audition...yet!

Re: Friday, April 3, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I also laughed out loud when he gave the answer age of consent.

But only because I gave the same answer at home before thinking "what kind of answer is that...twelve?????" Contestants don't have that luxury, and this was probably the one time I was glad I wasn't a contestant.

Re: 2015 Online Test

If you think about the whole process, and what it's worth to the CCs to catch someone taking the test more than once, I can see one way to cheat: have three email addresses, sign up three times, take all three tests. If you pass all three, you now have three chances to be randomly selected to auditi...
