Re: LearnedLeague 78 - Official Thread

Roma tomatoes sounded good to me. I'm still a little unclear on what constitutes a 'cultivar' - my latest working definition that may be wrong is a plant species created through selective breeding. When answering yesterday I was thinking more of strains of a plant (eg. Types of tomato) vs. quite dif...

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 3 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

For the R3D5 6-pointer, it looks like most people are answering "strep" or "strep throat". I agree those fit the clue, but I said scarlet fever (a complication of strep throat) which also fits the clue. Scarlet fever (aka scarletina) is a bacterial infection that involves a sore throat, and can lea...

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

It is really encouraging that Millionaire is seeking great trivia players like this. It seemed like the show was scooping up any eligible contestants at TCONA (change your residency rules please!). The producers have come around to the idea that impressive feats of knowledge make for good tv, not ju...

Well, I got an email at 5:30 PM today asking me to tape Millionaire at 8:30 AM THIS THURSDAY !?! They said they've been trying to call me since last week, but of course they got my number wrong and didn't think to try my work number or email. AND they gave me zero flexibility on the tape date. UGH ...

What is a contestant referral and has this ever helped anyone get on the show?! My friend told me he has a friend who’s been on the show and who could refer me. I said huh?

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

Auditioned at TCONA 8. Filled out all the legal papers on the spot. Got an email today asking me to write the personal bio / fun facts application. I can’t imagine they still don’t have all their contestants nailed down for the final 2 taping weeks, but we’ll see what happens! Best of luck! It seem...
