Super freakin' busy today getting the house in shape - my parents arrive at 2. But!

I got into Jeopardy! in-person auditions!

April 30, NYC. This does not mean I am definitely getting on Jeopardy!; it's just step two of the process! But yeah, I get to test on camera and play the actual game with the podiums and the buzzers, holy crap you guys. I have been a Jeopardy! junkie since I was just a wee thing. And I'm a step closer to actually being on the show.

Okay, back to cleaning!

Wow! That would be so cool. Best of luck!

So cool!

That is incredibly cool.

Woo! Even getting to play it on real podiums and buzzers is cool.

Wow! I'm impressed about the audition.

I meant to say congratulations about that last night, but I forgot.

Congratulations!

And, uh, good luck with the 'rents. :)

And I say that as someone who's been on (1997 teen tournament) and lost badly, ha!

They're looking for Charisma, at this point, as if they bother to put you on camera they have no doubt you have the smarts / trivia to play the game...

One (unsolicited) piece of advice: If you get on, they'll tell you that you can't ring in until the lights to the side of the monitors turn on, or you get locked out for some (don't remember exact) number of seconds. Don't sit there in between the time you find out you'll be on and the time they tape the show watching with a ball point pen to improve your reflexes... or you'll find yourself with faster reflexes than the producer turning those lights on...

My friends have often said I should audition, until the realize that what I know a lot about never gets asked on Jeopardy. They learned this by playing it (while watching) one night.

GOOD LUCK!

I occasionally pop by here to read, but this timing is a little too interesting. Yesterday one of my coworkers told me she got in for live Jeopardy! auditions as well.
