Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

Interesting...unless I'm missing something, this tells me there are two possibilities: 1. Pass a test and your name stays on the list for a minimum of one more cycle to be randomly selected for an audition (I really doubt this one) I remember it being mentioned at my last audition that the audition...

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

I was a contestant referral! Basically my friend's co-worker thought I "had what it takes" to be on the show after meeting me a couple times at pub trivia. He told me I had to take the online test and if I thought I did well enough (>40) that he would give me the email. I got 41 and emailed the pro...

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

What is a contestant referral and has this ever helped anyone get on the show?! My friend told me he has a friend who’s been on the show and who could refer me. I said huh? I don’t even know what that means. Then said friend asked if I’ve ever taken an online test and I said just stop I was a conte...

Some people would be thrilled to get one call. You sure crying about getting two is the way you want to to about this?

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

I suppose their could be an argument that they are carefully crafting each tape date's pool of players, balancing for age, gender, ethnicities, geographical representation, different occupations, etc., and that if one of the 10-12 they've chosen for a particular taping date can't make it, they may ...

Got bumped last Thursday, then waited all day today to tape because the 2 celebrity contestants wasted sooooo much time. There was even a chance I might get bumped to tomorrow, but they fit me in - thank god! My work here is done. Viva Las Vegas!

Re: This just in! New season of Millionaire (2018) seeks contestants

Someone near and dear to this board has received The Call. I hope alietr is being coy about a personal tape date, but in other news... I got The Call and taped this past Monday. And then my +1 got it and I was her +1 Tuesday. Fun times had by all. I got 5 days notice between The Call and taping, so...

John Lauderdale gives a wave from offstage, easily in view of Alex, but well out of camera range. any idea if a producer also whispers in his ear? I would've guessed the whisper method would be the one used, but if someone is waving, then my question becomes is that wave the backup to the whisper (...

Re: This just in! New season of Millionaire (2018) seeks contestants

One thing I’ll add for those considering WWTBAM: my friend the contestant has been on both J! and now Millionaire.
