Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

Regarding the Jeopardy tryout at Trivia Nationals, I would say the only difference between TN and a regular tryout is that they are anticipating a higher pass rate among test-takers. So they have planned for that in terms of how many people they are expecting to process through the interview/mock g...

Re: Buzzer Timing - Anticipate or Wait?

I'm honestly not sure what I did, but I got killed on the buzzers in my only game. I tried some anticipation, and some reacting to the lights, but neither of those things were helpful. I think the biggest thing that did me in was that I didn't spam the buzzers like the producers mentioned - I compl...

Buzzer Timing - Anticipate or Wait?

I've seen a lot of discussion in daily games regarding players getting or not getting good buzzer timing. What are your thoughts on either anticipating the light, or waiting for and reacting to the light, and why (please just don't pick one and not give an explanation as to why, give a reason)? If y...

Hi everyone. I’m Sarah, and I just signed up because I got an audition in Columbus. I was aware of the board here, but never registered. I figured it would be a good time to do that and hopefully get some tips!
do you know your score on the test?

Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

If you do get an audition, I would make absolutely sure you don't give them even a whiff of this being the case. I don't think they'd put anybody on the show because they need the money. Just my opinion. While I agree in principle, they DO ask for your occupation and, well... And that’s why your an...

Got the invite for Columbus the other day, but waited to share just because I wanted to confirm there wouldn't be an eligibility snafu because of WWTBAM. Guess I should be extra glad I aired during Week 1 last season!

Will the 5th time be the charm?
5???????

what was your score on this test?

there was only one columbus on the list of audition cities
true, but he didn't get specific on why he was invited to Columbus, so it could be any Columbus, including ones I NHO.
