Just wondering--have any Boardies gotten The Call for S34 yet?

A buddy of mine got the call about two weeks ago. He tapes at the end of August.

I auditioned (in person) in March for S33 and S34. No call yet. At this point I'm not expecting anything, but if I get it, it'll be a wonderful surprise.

I'm assuming you're the same person whose thread I posted in on Reddit a little while back since I saw your post there yesterday too, and while I give you massive congrats, I must admit this is a bit of a downer for me as I would imagine it probably doesn't bode well for another female dentist's chances now! :cry:

I'm not so sure. Those stories aren't quite identical.

Ooh you're right. Audition date off by a day. I got thrown by the ID name here also having a dental type association within it. Guess it's not the same person. Nonetheless the person on Reddit is of the same gender and profession I am, and can't help but think it's unlikely they would cast very similar demographics, but who knows.

Yup, that wasn't me. I'm (yet another) librarian -- one of 4 in the room at my audition -- and still got called, so don't rule yourself out! :)

haven't you ever noticed the glut of lawyers and teachers? Heck, they even added a tournament just for that one profession.

Yeah, however proportionally there are probably many many times more of those 2 things applying. And I'm also probably just trying to lower my expectations even further than they already are! Lol.

There were at least 3 female office assistants (myself included) on my tape day alone. We didn't all phrase our jobs in the same way, but I'm pretty sure we all had basically the same job.

AT actually commented one show on how students, lawyers, and teachers perform really well because of their background. He made a small comment questioning the idea of a Lawyer's Tournament.

My wife is one of at least three brunette female lawyers from Florida, aged about 30-35, who have been on the show in the past year and a half. So I wouldn't worry too much about other people in the pool with similar demographic info to oneself.

Hi! I wanted to introduce myself- Donna B, of Seattle, taping Sept 5 (!) My audition was 7 26; everyone was lovely. Do you think that contestants from the same city/audition would be on the same episode?

Welcome.
Thats a quick turnaround from the audition. All the best for the taping.
Probably unlikely ASAIK.
