Auditioning for Jeopardy...

Postby Kilroy » Fri Dec 16, 2005 2:03 am

The Show's doing a contestant search here in PHX and I'm auditioning on the 22nd of January. I was wondering if anyone here at the Cafe had ever participated in one (a Jeopardy audition), and if so if they had any pointers.

Wish me luck. :-?

What is Larry Johnson?

Who is Joey Galloway?

Where is Ralph Wilson Stadium?

Maybe I better broaden my horizons. :-D

That's cool that you are trying out. I have never done so although it might be an interesting experience...

I just did a quick search on the subject, and this seems like a pretty comprehensive "pointer" on the audition. ;-D

Thanks Mercer. Already have that bad boy printed out so I can read, re-read, and re-re-read it. I'm tryin' to bone up on subjects I'm not real familiar with. (Art and Shakespeare could kill me. History, Science, Geography, and of course Sports I feel like I'm pretty solid in, so I'm kinda just "polishing". Thing is, between the holidays and the fact that football season isn't over yet (I know that I should be reading SOMETHING besides the Injury Forum, yet here I is. :-D ) I'm probably only gonna get about 3 weeks of b***s-to-the-wall studying in. At least my boss is understanding (I think she's more jazzed about it than I am).

H**l, I'm learnin' right now (There's a freaking SCRABBLE tournament on ESPN! I thought I'd seen it all when Rock Paper Scissors was on FSN, but No.........)

Once again though, thanks for lookin' out. ;-D

That's pretty cool man...No real advice, since I have no idea what it's like or what to expect.

But that said man, Good Luck! Hope it goes well...I would love to hear about how it went afterward. ;-D

You should probably read the entire dictionary and then the encyclopedia britnaica A-Z and then memorize all the words that begin with the letter W. Then watch White Men Can't jump and figure out what rosie perez is reading. But pause the movie when she's in bed for the gratuitous nip shot ;-D
