Re: WWTBAM returns to primetime

Reading the requirements, I don’t see any exclusions for people who were previously contestants on WWTBAM from applying. Do people think this is just an oversight, or the fact that this is via contestant coordinator selection that hot seat returnees would be filtered Out?

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

The pizza delivery question was just bad. If you do a quick search on top pizza delivery days - you get a wide range of answers. I saw lists that were still calling Super Bowl Sunday as number one. Another listed Halloween. Not fair to have to know what one particular source says.

Re: How does one study for Who Wants to be a Millionaire?

For the early questions, don't get hung up on not knowing the precise fact that they are asking. It is more of a case of using logic and common sense to work out. Figure out beforehand personally and with family/friends how much you are willing to gamble on a question. How does this gamble change wh...

Re: May 30 2017, Adult Online Contestant Test Discussion

In regards to #13 regarding the 8-letter word - wouldn't "metaphor" be a better answer? I think it fits better with the "mixed" part of the clue.

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

I was wondering if they will be doing a few different periods of Boston auditions. Boston is an option for Sports Jeopardy as wrll, does that mean the contestant coordinators have to make two trips out to Boston? Or is there going to be a quick turn around between taking the Sports test and when Bos...

Re: New trivia game show is looking for contestants

For the people who have had an interview, do you have any sense as to what type of personality they are going for (excited Wheel of Fortune type vs sedate Jeopardy type)? Does the in person interview involve going cross country? This sounds interesting, but I dont want to invest time when I have a h...

Re: One year later

Along the lines of order of being called during the audition-does anyone have any conspiracy theories about if you get called up a second time, because the last group needs an extra person? This happen to me last time, and Maggie said it was random. Though I can also see it being a chance at giving ...

Along the lines of misspelling Final Jeopardy responses: any thoughts as to what Jeopardy would do if a contestant was dyslexic? Would there be some leeway given, or is that contestant out of luck?

My question is why does Jeopardy accept shortened versions of some titles (like Huckleberry Finn for Adventures of Huckleberry Finn) but disallowed the Zelda answers?

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Central), January 9, 2013

Would ITunes for question 33 be deemed acceptable?

Also, for question 44, would Mule be a possible answer (not much of an expert on women's fashion, or fashion in general)?
