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...

Re: How does Alex Know When The SJ/DJ Rounds Are Almost Over?

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. He commented that the Green Roon experience at Millionaire, though interminable, was more pleasant than the one at J! We both attributed this to the lack of competition between contest...

Looks like it's late July for Detroit. Still saddened at the lack of invite. Probability mistreats me once more.

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

Look for the nugget of information in the question that will help you find the right answer. I missed a fairly easy question about Atlanta the first time I was on because both my plus one and I focused on a Walking Dead reference and not on what it actually wanted me to answer. Also, was it really ...

Re: TCONA 8

If you are going to ever go, go this year. I sense the event is on shaky financial footing. I should say, its operator has even admitted that the financial situation is bad. There is a nonzero chance it folds before next year, or is sold to a larger corporate entity. In the latter case I suspect it...

I will definitely be there for my fourth TCONA, and I encourage any fence-sitters to get in on the action. It really is a fantastic experience. I'm not sure yet where I'll be staying, but if I end up at the Trop I'd be happy to host a boardie get-together. I'm on the fence! Do people try to do most...
