A frustrating FJ for me. I knew what gizmo they meant, but I couldn't think of its name.

Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

And as for the Austin pub quiz audition in NYC, it did seem difficult to imagine TPTB skipping NYC for an entire year of auditions. I'm pretty sure that for the past several years, they have alternated Boston and NYC as an audition city. I used to be out of sync with that schedule, and there were s...

What an embarrassing FJ. Answered Vancouver :oops: :x :evil:
You are not alone.

However, I actually found the crossword clues to be extremely easy. (I do a lot of crosswords.)

Me during the think music: Ummm? Maybe Arlo Guthrie? Probably not. There was the other Guthrie, though -- what was his name? Nope, it's not coming. But Arlo was the dad, right? He was older? And therefore more likely to be known to Steinbeck? Oh what the heck, I'm probably way off base anyway. I''ll...

I was spoiled because I happened to catch the tag end of the CBS Evening News. Grrr.

Since I am currently in the contestant pool, I am glad James is gone. I am also glad he didn't surpass Ken's regular-play winnings. Nothing against James, but I simply prefer Ken. I thought he was funnier.

I grew up in Vermont, so Smuggler's Notch was a gimme for me, but many states boast a city or town named Burlington, I thought that was a difficult clue.

I don't know what other guesses are even plausible for Final. Maybe if somebody had a major brain fart and tried Born on the Fourth of July?
I had no clue, although it clearly had something to do with the Civil War. I went with "The Blue and the Grey". That was a movie, right?

Re: Tuesday, May 21, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I thought Kate seemed really subdued by the end of the game, even when she rang in with correct answers. I think that's what made me notice her body language during the final credits. In fact, BOTH challengers were standing with folded arms.
Note to self: If you get the chance, don't do that.

Don't expect two tests. We were told this was something they "rarely" did. I found the 2nd test tp be a little more difficult, but not tremendously so.

Re: TD 420 - Free your mind (Q3 Revealed)

I did not cotton on to the fact that you didn't need the adjective. I thought you were requiring something like "an <adjective>> joker" and I had no clue. So I sheeped, and paid a stiff price for it. Such are the vagaries of TD.

Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

30 was reported in a Boston session That 30 was a guess on my part. I didn't actually count. I think there was a no-show, and we ended up with a final group of only 2. (They pulled a random person up to repeat the buzzing in portion of the mock game.) interesting they pulled a 3rd person for that a...

Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

If you've been to an audition so far, let us know how many people were in your session and if you can estimate the male:female ratio, post up. Also, I know there's been radio silence from Jeopardy regarding upcoming auditions, but with the schedule we know so far, I would expect more cities to star...

Dressing for the microphone

Here's a question for people (particularly women) who have appeared on the show: Do the sound techs prefer that you wear something with a waistband so that they have somewhere to clip a battery pack? Or are battery packs a thing of the past?

Wait and see. I can only imagine they don’t want to make any promises to anyone, but I’m sure they keep track of some people in exceptional scenarios. You did the right thing by emailing. Now you have to respect the “don’t call us, we’ll call you” rule. Good luck and do report back. I’m in a simila...
