That's awesome BBB. Especially being able to dodge the beast.

How are you going to practice? I think the buzzer is probably the most important thing. You can only cram so many more facts into your head. But you're a n00b at buzzer clicking.



They gave me an official Jeopardy pen at the audition. They say it's very like the ones on the show. And they did give us buzzers to use during the audition. Not sure if they're production-level, but they were very similar to clicking the pens, which have a large head. So I'll use the pen, watch the show, make myself buzz in and answer as a question.

Same with flash card trivia. I'll make myself answer out loud, not just think it.

In ATC, you had 3 levels of knowledge. Mastering the equipment left more time for thinking. Mastering the basic rules and phraseology left more time for refining your plan. After you had those first two, mechanical and procedural, your time stretched because you had habits. This seems similar.

Mechanics. Confidence. Maybe equals a winning edge. Hoping a lifetime of curiosity and learning overcomes getting older than is ideal for this.

Certainly open to suggestions and team support.

Congratulations Barb!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am super excited! I think you know I know use superlatives often, but this is one of those times I'm just beside myself. I've dreamed of being on Jeopardy for decades, never made, and never will, so I will be playing vicariously through you.

May I be the first to suggest a dinner after the show to analyze, in painful detail, everything that happened. I will take notes, assuming they let me, for later analysis.

Also, may the side betting begin! If you prefer this be kept behind the scenes let us know. With every bet, there will be a perceived compliment and an insult. I've learned that insults tend to outweigh compliments, significantly, so maybe it's best we don't make make public who is betting what side.

I'm also interested to know what you'll recommend Alex talk about in the "meet the contestants" portion. Suggestion, you are good friends with the "Wizard of Odds," which is also the name of Alex's first game show.



Again, congrats!!!

I had a close friend appear on Wheel of Fortune a few years back. He was able to tell me about the process in detail as soon as he got back, but couldn't talk about the results of the show until after it aired. I think it would be similar for Jeopardy contestants.



This is what the coordinator said today as well. I can talk about the process, just not the questions or the results.

As of this moment, it appears that tickets to see the tapings on July 23 are available on the Jeopardy! website...

Thanks.

I'm in. I now have two tickets for the July 23rd 11:00 am taping.



Great! I don't know which show I'm doing - there will be 5 that day, but I will be on. One of their fair standards and practices duties is that they randomize who gets what slot that day (except the returning champion, of course). They tape 3 with a short break between each, take lunch, tape 2 more, and finish around 4:30. So it could be any of those.

Edit: just looked at Aye's link, and you may need to request afternoon tickets as well to be sure you see the one I get.


Do you know how they pick which contestants to show up on which dates? I imagine they pick their list of contestants (say 100) for the season. Then what do they do from there? Do they pick the best contestants to go first? Worst first? Randomize it completely? Or something else (maybe they mix in some good with bad contestants per taping day)?

If anyone wants to make bets on the results of the show, you can make your bets directly through me. If you’re interested, I’ll be posting lines on July 24’th.



He didn't get into what they saw (if anything) that made them call me when they did. I do know the WPB test I took was ahead of the national test by a couple weeks, and our resulting in-person audition was first among the sites out of that testing. So could be as simple as timing, except everyone in my group said they were from Florida. I haven't seen many shows where people are all from one state/province, so there must be a mix.

I do know the pool eligibility I tested for was 18 months, not just one season/year, so maybe a lot of those folks that got day one (and with me on day two) assigned today were from the previous year's pool, and live other places besides Florida. I just got very lucky, I think, once the audition went well, and got slotted early in my eligibility.

He did say that everyone who flies in for a particular taping day will play that day. Once everyone is there o
that day, the S&P person will conduct some kind of randomizing (name out of a hat or something) that will determine who will play each other and the returning champion. That's to keep it fair, prevent preset arrangements among contestants or any cheating.

They also have a local contestant pool, people who can be somewhat flexible, appear or not as events happen, come back if there's enough out-of-towners on, that they're not needed. Really very thoughtful of them to do that, I think. Makes it work for everybody.

They're still doing in-person auditions around the country this week, with some big cities in the next few, so there are a lot of other contestants yet to be seen and cast.

Thanks! Oddly enough, they are giving me another crack at my 5 stories to have on hand. He said it with a little warning in his voice, like, you'll want to give us better material, so I've been reflecting. And I realized how I don't have 5 good stories to tell millions of people, I have 500, because I've had an incredibly full and amazing life. So if nothing else, some serious blessing-counting coming out of this.

Yeah, the WoO connection is a nice way to tie to Alex. They might well be interested in him bringing that up in some way.

I am the most surprised person on here that any of this is happening. And I can see myself winning multi-day, digging a bad-answer hole negative several thousand and not even making FJ, and everything in between.

So there is no bad bet, can't insult me by betting against me, side-wagering is up to all of you, but I won't be participating in any way (or tanking, RS, lol). You can safely assume I will do my best to win. I'd appreciate if you started a side-thread for that, and I won't read it or post in it (I'll block it, in fact) so there's no S&P issue.

For props I would suggest (you set the odds among you) some possibilities:

Will I be (first, hopefully)appearing on Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu, or Fri?
Will I win?
How many times will I be on total?
Will I make Alex laugh?
Will he say the word "ooh" all drawn-out like he does, either during my story, or at a wrong answer?
How many times will I answer?
What right/wrong percentage will I have?
Will I run a category?
Will I lead after the Jeopardy round? After DJ?
Will I get FJ question right?
Will I get 0,1,2, or 3 chances at a Daily Double?
Will we have any triple-stumpers?
Will my score ever go in the red?
Will there be any clues leftover on the board in J? DJ?
Will the name "Holtzhauer" or "Jennings" be said on my game (other than by me, though I don't intend to bring them up)?
What range will my final score be in (winning or not)?
Lots of other stuff that I WOULD have control over, like which dollar amount to pick the first time I pick, or which specific box, lots of others, but I don't want to see any of those, so you do them in the other thread.

And yes, let's definitely do an after-taping group dinner in LA somewhere, everybody that wants to come.

Not to derail, but this seemed like the best place to post this.

Anyone watch Jeopardy! last night? One of the categories was "An Album Cover!"


If you don't want to watch the whole thing, check out what 'Sean Connery' says around the 4:08 mark.

(or unfortunately, depending on how you look at it) none of the contestants asked for a clue in the "Anal Bum Cover" category.

No, no derail at all. The whole J! Community is talking about them naming that category with the SNL thing in mind. Hysterical to bat it back for once.

Do you have a return flight already? I was wondering about that. If contestants don't plan a return one then it would be crazy expensive last minute. But you don't want to schedule one the next day just in case, but you don't want to schedule one at the end of the week just in case. Seems like a tough position. A 3rd place prize can quickly turn into you losing money, especially after taxes. That last part may not apply to you, can you still get free rides since you were in the industry?

Since you can not say what happened, maybe you can say well looks like I will be in LA for another day. We will know what that means. I will die having to wait until Sept to find out.

I think I'm supposed to call early Tuesday morning, to confirm that the taping is still on schedule. (I can't remember if I read that somewhere... or if they were part of the instructions I was given by the automated recording when I called to confirm my ticket reservation earlier this week.)

I suspect you might now earlier than I do. If for some reason the schedule does change at the last minute, and they reschedule maybe you can, let us know here. (I'd hate to have to drive all the way to Burbank for nothing.)

My tickets are just for the 11:00 am taping. (I don't know how many shows I'll see. Two, maybe three, I think.) Hopefully you'll be a contestant for one of those early shows, but if not, I'll have fun watching a live taping regardless.

Good luck and have fun.

A note to the ticket holders... You may want to check the fine print to see if the seats are guaranteed. I would not be surprised if they distribute more tickets than they have capacity for to ensure a full house, so folks would have to get there early for the line up.

I will not be allowed to have my phone there, so I can't update you that day, but it's all on as of now.

You will see the first 3 M-T-W shows. They break for a short lunch, then two more starting at 2:30. You could seriously consider asking to stay for the afternoon if I haven't been on yet. They seem very gracious. And I would guess some of the morning folks will clear out as results happen. But idk that.

I won't know what show I start on until that morning. They do some kind of randomizing to prevent collusion before the taping.

Do you have a return flight already? I was wondering about that. If contestants don't plan a return one then it would be crazy expensive last minute. But you don't want to schedule one the next day just in case, but you don't want to schedule one at the end of the week just in case. Seems like a tough position. A 3rd place prize can quickly turn into you losing money, especially after taxes. That last part may not apply to you, can you still get free rides since you were in the industry?

Since you can not say what happened, maybe you can say well looks like I will be in LA for another day. We will know what that means. I will die having to wait until Sept to find out.



They have already told me what I have to do and what date (s) to reserve if I'm the Friday champion from this day's taping. But you're right, I'm going to go quiet about results because they can take my winnings away if I spoil the information on social media.

Thanks for the enthusiasm! It helps!

A note to the ticket holders... You may want to check the fine print to see if the seats are guaranteed. I would not be surprised if they distribute more tickets than they have capacity for to ensure a full house, so folks would have to get there early for the line up.




You have to call in and confirm your ticket within a week of taping.

Good luck BBB! You should do a trip report type thing once your episode(s) air. I'd love to read about the experience.

I think I'm supposed to call early Tuesday morning, to confirm that the taping is still on schedule. (I can't remember if I read that somewhere... or if they were part of the instructions I was given by the automated recording when I called to confirm my ticket reservation earlier this week.)

I suspect you might now earlier than I do. If for some reason the schedule does change at the last minute, and they reschedule maybe you can, let us know here. (I'd hate to have to drive all the way to Burbank for nothing.)

My tickets are just for the 11:00 am taping. (I don't know how many shows I'll see. Two, maybe three, I think.) Hopefully you'll be a contestant for one of those early shows, but if not, I'll have fun watching a live taping regardless.

Good luck and have fun.



Ed,

You mention Burbank. I don't know LA, but the studio is in Culver City. So maybe you're talking about the same place, but just in case you're not....

Could you please answer or hit the thank you button here so I know you saw this?

Thanks. Yea, I have the address.

Burbank, Culver City, Universal City, Century City, Hollywood... all of those cities are so close they all blend together and all seem the same to me. (I don't get up that way much.)

Conan, The Jimmy Kimmel Show, The Big Bang Theory and many other shows ARE all taped in Burbank... so that's what I must have been thinking.

Don't contestants get some guaranteed tickets? Or are they all spoken for already?

You sure are a nosey bastard.

I guess it depends if I can sneak past security to the heckling section.
