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

Got bumped last Thursday, then waited all day today to tape because the 2 celebrity contestants wasted sooooo much time. There was even a chance I might get bumped to tomorrow, but they fit me in - thank god! My work here is done. Viva Las Vegas!

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

So here’s how my Millionaire taping went today. Showed up at 8:30 AM for the contestant briefings, rehearsal, etc. At 3PM they bumped my entire group - plus one other holdover from yesterday (!!!) - to next week. Upside: I slept horribly last night and I was fading fast, and now I know how everythi...

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

Update: I have 2 people lined up for the Plus One and both are coming with me to Vegas. Thanks all TBH, I don't know how well I'll do on Millionaire. Jeopardy! is more my speed, whereas Millionaire is more about pop culture / random facts. I'm going in with the expectation of winning $5,000 - anythi...

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

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 O...

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

RE: berg , I specified that burg should be accepted only if we're playing by Jeopardy! rules (berg/burg sound close enough in English, though I think there's a difference in German - the e in berg pronounced like bear in English). Otherwise, no dice I agree that burse is pretty obscure - I've never ...

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

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? I don’t even know what that means. Then said friend asked if I’ve ever taken an online test and I said just stop

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 2 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

Now that I see the explanations, I get it; are there any other clues to watch out for, i.e., "frightened" and "messy"? It's a fun category when you know what you're looking for so maybe something to run again towards the end of the challenge? NY Times has a primer on how to solve these And check ou...

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 2 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

I should note that ‘As You Like It’ was my back-up question, and it was edited to take out a clue that would have helped. I didn’t want to include 2 theatre questions, but I don’t remember the question that got thrown out

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 2 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

Back in my acting days, I was an extra (technically a supernumerary) in Writing to Vermeer , an absurdly highbrow opera about three women who write letters to Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer in the year 1672. The opera was performed on a raked stage, and I'm surprised I didn't trip in my period shoes...

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!
