Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

Some thoughts on McKinnie's B episode If you wanted to have a "Rocky" marathon 130 min (907/7) seems too long for an average film time. 110 min (765/7) looks better to me. And I've yet to see A or D come up as the right answer when there are 4 numerical choices In my online research, and in a game ...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

Are you going to be on every week? :) Your +1 appearance with Tara Whittle airs today for the B slot. Sure feels like it! And to add to it, I'm in the audience for the A slot episode today, right behind the +1. But that should be it, which is good because it means my Jeopardy eligibility clock can ...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

Andrew, what can I say? It was a risk well worth taking, and it didn't pan out for you, unfortunately. The expected value was definitely there. It sucks to gamble with that much money, but it was entirely justifiable. And you get a lot of Mouse money, too, to help salve that wound. https://i.imgur....

You did a really good job acthomas. $50,000 is nothing to sneeze at. ;) I knew the moon landing question before the choices even came up. Also, the study of bats is Chiroptology. I am looking forward to seeing the other J!Boardies on Millionaire this season. :D Two stories: 1) I had "ologies and ph...

Waiting on pins and needles for my (quickly thrown together) watch party to happen! I've decided to wait until the A run (which should be in December) until I comment online about my game -- there'll be a live tweet for sure -- but I'll say now it was a wonderful experience that I'll remember foreve...

Sadly I never received any notice from Millionaire's PR about this air date in the B run, so it was something of a surprise to see it airing today.

My DVR only recorded 1 new episode today. Are they showing 2 new episodes per day?
Right now they are -- markets with a "second run" time slot are showing 2 new ones for a few weeks, then they'll be repeats of the originals we're seeing now.

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...

This post reminded me of the pub quiz question asking which two English words can be formed from the initials of a James Bond film title. That's a brain buster!

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...

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?

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 immediately flashed back to that episode too. I may have mentally edited the right answer in.
