Re: So...what have we learned so far from James Holzhauer?

I'm catching up on episodes from early in the season. Guy found a DD late in the first round, bottom box, category AT LEAST 20 MILLION TWITTER FOLLOWERS. He bet just $2000 and got it right. Rest of the game was close, he went into FJ in 2nd place, the champ missed so he won the game. I get the stra...

Re: So...what have we learned so far from James Holzhauer?

Also, why DOES it lock you out? I'm not fond of that. Because they want a disincentive for buzzing in early. Yeah, I got that, but WHY don't they want people to buzz in early. Personally I feel if you know it, you should be able to buzz in whenever (with the exception of there being contestants lik...

Are you sure about that?
No, I've never been on J! I was on WWTBAM in 2000 (as can be seen from my avatar).
I'll remove it. I confused your screen name with someone else.

Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

Do they send invitations in multiple waves? A friend of mine in LA got his and I know I passed (36) but I'm wondering if I'm just unlucky... They have in the past. Not sure if they still do. I don't see why they wouldn't. First wave, wait a few days and see if everyone gets back to them; then anoth...

Washington, 38

Looks like LA invites are going out. I maintain hope that DC hasn't gone out yet.
I'm surprised the LA ones are going out this quick, but this was a late test. I don't think we've ever seen multiple cities being invited at the same time.

Los Angeles 41. When will they be back in studio to start taping season 36? July sometime? They must take some part of the next 8-10 weeks for auditions. Fingers crossed that I get another chance after 2 unsuccessful auditions. Maybe 3rd time will be the charm for me. late july/early august auditio...

Re: So...what have we learned so far from James Holzhauer?

Buzzing speed matters. In every game so far, there’s one player who barely buzzes in, and I doubt it’s because they don’t know the answers. I agree here, I've noticed a little slowdown in James Thursday and Friday. I don't know if that will be a regular pattern of his, but that is when he seems bea...

Buzzing speed matters. In every game so far, there’s one player who barely buzzes in, and I doubt it’s because they don’t know the answers. Of course buzzing speed matters greatly, but I think James also knows a bit more of the material than the average contestant. This reminds me of triviawayne's ...

Re: Adult Online Test: Apr 9, 10, 11

As I've said many times, let them decide if you are not eligible. Absolutely bring up the situation (and in your case, how you were invited to be on the show) so you are covered for full disclosure; but let them interpret their rules instead of doing it for them. We agree. I'm just anxiously waitin...

I looked at my audition invite email from June 2017 and noticed this paragraph: Eligibility: You must not have been to an in-person audition (where you took a 50 question test) in the past 18 months. If we find that you have been at an in-person audition in the past 18 months, you will be deemed in...

Re: Adult Online Test: Apr 9, 10, 11

What we know is that somewhere around 100,000 people take the online test. Of those, 2500 to 3000 will audition in any given year. The only unknown is the “passing rate” but if we posit that 10% of the test takers get a “passing” score then there’s a pool of 10,000 to choose from. Truly random sele...
