Re: TCONA 8

Thanks for the Quiz Bowl tips! Should be fun, even if I bomb terribly What's the deal with the Millionaire auditions? Do you just show up or do you need to sign up in advance? If Millionaire holds auditions at TCONA, you can just show up. If not, you can go over to the studio next to Bally's and au...

Let's be sure to look for each other at the Millionaire taping. It's always fun to sit together.

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 ...

The third major event is the Hot 100/IQA event. You know, I haven’t posted here in months, and yet I bothered to drop by to offer that little bit of info. It is reasonable to assume that I might know something more about these behind-the-scenes issues than you. It is also reasonable to assume someo...

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...

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

So I sent in a new audition remotely. Crickets. I am super tempted to fly down next week for the beginning of taping and try out again (then if necessary try out again at TCONA). One site says taping begins Tuesday July 10: https://millionairetv.dadt.com/tickets/ Their ticketing says July 9: http:/...

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...

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

I've always thought I was a pretty good J! player (after all, I've passed the contestant quiz, um, several times). But living in the same galaxy as guys like Ken Jennings and Roger Craig is an excellent way to stay humble. And this thread---with a for-God's-sake web-based video on how to study for ...

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

I had seen in the past something brief about Philly tryouts, any further word on this? Do you think they combined the Philly group with NYC? If so I'm hosed again. :oops: :oops: with the posted travelogue upthread, my guess would be it was combined with either NYC or DC; but in the past we have see...

Has anyone received a confirmation for the Cleveland audition? I replied to the email and have not heard anything back yet. I'm in the if anything can go wrong mindset, it probably has. Thanks.
