Re: Wednesday, May 29, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

That one category in Double Jeopardy -- no, not that category, but the other one, the one that was all the way on the right side of the board -- the one with all the meandering garden path clues -- (finger snap) Could we please never have a category like that again? I really enjoyed it, myself. I t...

Can someone (perhaps Vermonter) explain what is meant by "Holzhauer now has the highest per-game average"? Didn't he have that a while ago?
My read of that is that the writer is rather clumsily trying to express that James' per-game average now exceeds the old single game record.

Re: Adult Online Test: Apr 9, 10, 11

I'm going to leave this in here instead of a new thread, because of what's been talked about in this one: Every audition I've gone to for any show, they take your picture and put it with "your file". Obviously it is part of the casting process while helping people remember who you are. So I just wa...

Re: Alex Trebek Announces Diagnosis of Pancreatic Cancer

This is very sad. I hope very badly that he makes good on his vow to finish out his contract. He’s had a remarkable run, and I hope it continues.

Re: Adult Online Test: Apr 9, 10, 11

I'm cynical enough to think that people who aren't telegenic from their photos will not get called for an in-person audition regardless of their online test scores. I'm also paranoid enough to wonder why I haven't been called for an in-person audition in the online testing era despite getting score...

Re: Should the Teen Tournament Winner Get a TOC Invite?

I'm interested to see what others think of a Teen ToC like I described if it were to happen. I think it'd be a good event to substitute their spots in main ToCs. I think, in lieu of the Teen Tournament winner getting a spot in the TOC, this would be a good idea. What I want to see is some connectio...

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

I auditioned in Atlanta and got the call this week. I am still shocked! Taping on July 24th!! I have just joined jboard so I was hoping somebody could point me to a thread that discusses highest-yield prep strategies. I tried searching but it seems like I was just pulling one-off comments from rand...

I took the online test for the first time on March 7th. I got an email about 10:30 last night inviting me to the New York City audition on April 25th. Looking forward to the experience!
Today I got THE CALL!
Congratulations! Do Atlantic Canada proud!

Pointer, what a coincidence - I’m also going from Newfoundland to NYC! I’m in the April 25 audition group, though.
This is an interesting coincidence - I’m coming down from Halifax! Perhaps they’ve decided that Atlantic Canada is a major untapped resource!

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

After ten years, I'm going swimming again! New York on April 24! Huzzah! Congrats! Best of luck with the audition. I think you and I both auditioned in Toronto in 2008, so I hope your latest audition is a good omen for me. My two auditions have been in 1998 and 2008, so I could use the every-ten-ye...

That felt like a tough test.
Me four. I don't know if fatherhood and middle age are slowing me down, but I think this was my worst score in a decade.

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

If you're lucky enough to audition, don't let perceived statistical injustice dull your shine. This is precisely right. It's important to remember how lucky you are to be there - I have now been passed over for the seventh or eighth straight time, after getting an invite (on my worst test ever, no ...
