Re: Audition rules clarification

Send a note to the contestant coordinator email address. Explain your situation and ask them if you should take the test. That's what I did in 2018 when my 18 months ran out a week or two after the online test was scheduled. They told me to skip the online test. I did. They still did not call me to...

Re: Audition rules clarification

If I was in a couple of months, I would take the test anyway as the audition date would be outside the window of the 18 months. Then when and if invited, I would alert them to the situation and ask if I am eligible for the audition. This way it does no harm to anyone eligible, while giving myself ev...

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

I didn't think it would be "The Periodic Table," which felt a little clunky to me (and besides, the actual thing has more than 21 elements! Even in 1975!), and I vacillated between "Periodic" and "Periodical" before trying to think of something that sounded a little more literary, and came up with ...

So, how's Tamron Hall working out in the Millionaire slot?
early report I saw it got the same 1.4 ratings

I just don't understand, Millionaire was cheap, it was gaining viewers; a new show is always a gamble, talkers rarely pay off.

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

The one stat missing that I would love to see is a magic number or otherwise named stat showing mathematical possibility/eligibility of relegation/promotion.

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

I waffled between Denmark, Indonesia, Canada, and the Philippines. Only Denmark made sense given the wording. But Australia was MCWA? I'm curious about people who got Fill or Kill. Did you just guess? Did you know it? I consider myself very well versed in finance and I don't think I have ever heard...

I should've had Foley, just couldn't think of it at all.

Annoyed with myself over Greenland vs. Denmark, went Greenland, but at least it didn't cost me the match, I'd have lost anyway.

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

I was one of the 36% who confidently answered The Lion King for highest-grossing G-rated movie. Now I really want to know what that movie did to earn a PG. I thought "is the Lion King" really G? Oh well, since it has last month, and I know that one is a juggernaut I'll put it down. TS4 is out of th...

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

To be fair, seaborgium, I have a lot more confidence in you being able to suss out the correct answer (or correct enough) to this than your typical D or E rundler, yet most of them knew it, too, so I've just got to assume it's something people just knew. I think you may be overestimating knew vs gu...

Re: Is J! getting easier, or...???

When did you start, and how long did it take, and did you start with the older games?

If you began with the older games, I would think #1 is in effect, and if you did this in a short time, then I would say the material became more familiar as you went on.

Re: Pet Intellectual Peeves

With the NFL season starting I thought I'd mention a time some of my buddies were making predictions as to which two teams would be in the next Super Bowl. One of the predictions was for a Cowboys-Packers Super Bowl, while another one predicted Patriots-Steelers. Even I know better, and I haven’t w...

RTFQ!! Saw "Titicaca" first, and my morning brain could only see Latin South America. THEN I go on to read "Roman engineer emperor " in the next clue, which sent me so far off track that the useful "famous drawing" hint did me no good. (Some famous drawing of Augustus??) RTFQ!!

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

Given all the clues in the question about Van Doren, how did that only play 14%? I think the 1991 and the Today Show correspondent kept many people (myself included) thinking of who was on the Today Show in 1991. With the explosive growth of the league from 5000 to 15,000 in the last few seasons, I...

Hello all, I took the exam in March 2018, I got a 40. I took the audition in Philadelphia on Sept 11, and just got "The Call" this afternoon! I am so ecstatic, this feels so surreal. I dreamed of this moment since I was a little kid!!
Go get em!
