Also, as she said in her intro thread, jbillygirl has already taped for Season 28, although I don't know that she's posted an airdate.

Probably should be adjusted to "Boardies on the Show - Season 28" for consistency. ;)

Good luck to Suze and Jbillygirl, should be some interesting games.

Best of retroactive luck to Suze and JBillyGirl. I hope to see a lot of familiar names on the list this season!

Thanks for the retroactive good wishes! My first (and perhaps only) airdate will be Friday, September 23. If appropriate (I don't know the protocol around here), I'll post again the week of the show (the first week of the season).

Yes, thanks for the well-wishes. I had such a blast. I'm a Maggie fangirl now.

Suze is one boardie I've wanted to see live for a while now. Just to see how her digital persona translates on-screen. :) Congrats, Suze, for making it! And congrats, too, to jbillygirl for the same. (Statistically speaking, there's a 12.5% chance they ended up playing against each other . . .)

Persona...well, let's see...During the rehearsal game, I danced when I came upon the Daily Double. DANCED. And I didn't mean to. No one wants to be one of those contestants, you know. Maggie seemed to like it though.
I've also been informed by a fellow contestant that I gave SEX EYES to the camera during the intro portion. Apparently what feels like nervous-and hey-is-the-camera-panning-over-to-the-other-person-yet eyes come off as something else.

Thank you for all the encouragement, everyone. As to whether or not Jbillygirl and I met this week...well, you'll see. ;)

You must have studied at the Elizabeth Taylor School of Game Show Contestantry.

When I heard the term it was bedroom eyes. Kids these days leave nothing to the imagination...

Suze and JBillyGirl, could you please tell me how Alex was during your tapings? Did he hobble or stand in the not usual places (for instance, was he always behind the mike, and not in front of the contestants during either the interviews or FJ!) Also, maybe some Season 28 changes? (no spoilers, of course). I'm guessing not much. But maybe, for instance, could the monitor that's used for the FJ! category reveal (before the commercial break). I think as great as the new set is, it's a waste for that monitor to be used just for that.

These have been mentioned in other threads already. Do some searching before asking these questions. :)

Not a Boardie, but ...

... I have it on good authority that crossword constructor extraordinaire joon pahk will appear on J! on Monday, October 3rd.

I hope this doesn't mean they've hit their quota. ;)
