Well, this would only be "middle of September", so ... ;)
Well it's the last half of it at least >______> I dunno maybe I should be more patient.

Does anyone know if they've chosen the players for teen jeopardy? I was told end of September (I think) and am starting to wonder if I wasn't picked.

Useful memorization tools

I felt like making this topic to post some memorization tools I've found on the internet. Obviously, there is some information out there that just needs to be memorized no matter how many times we see it on Jeopardy or elsewhere, and others that are very important to know for success at such places....

Funny thing about my audition is that it is 1 day before my school starts, haha.

Re: Monday, May 28, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

I honestly wish that they would stop with the clue crew. They take about 30 seconds to explain a clue that had a very obvious answer 2 seconds in to it. It's really just wasting time, and luckily they managed to get all 60 clues. I also don't like to complain about the contestants, but I really wish...

Re: Friday, May 11, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Maybe, just maybe, (hear me out) her(Elyse's) wagering theory was that if all of them bet it all, she would win on a TS. Isn't a sound strategy but it worked. Anyway, I love high wagers, and that was awesome, and she leaves with more than was guaranteed. As for FJ, I misinterpreted the question and ...

Re: Alex retiring

I'd love it if Jeff Probst was the host. Ben Stein would be a funny host, too. I've never seen an episode of Rock and Roll Jeopardy, so I can't tell if Jeff had a good voice for Jeopardy. Dennis Miller would be funny, but probably not Jeopardy material. I'm sure the producers have a target already, ...

Re: Friday, May 4, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Interesting game to say at the least. Yes, she over wagered, but honestly, I think you're being too hard on her. I usually don't stick up for random people on a TV game show (in fact I love making fun of dumb people coming up with dumb answers, however that didn't happen) but everyone here is honest...

Re: Monday, April 30, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Easy for me, but a lot of this reaches things I studied at the beginning of my school year/last year and I needed a good refresher. Got FJ easily, but of course wasn't 100% certain. I was trying to see if it was more difficult than it sounded, but couldn't think of a different answer than the CIA.

Re: Friday, April 27, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Man, recently the players haven't been performing so greatly. I agree that they are going to slow, and it sort of bugs me when they start at the top of the category on the last category, and also say the ridiculously long name that is attached to it. Too many clues have been left unrevealed, too. I ...

Re: Thursday, April 26, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Eek, so many TSs. Extremely uneventful game, except for the 2nd player (can't remember his name) and his successful attempt at staying on the positive side.

I said Nixon, had my bearings wrong when the Super Bowl actually happened (thought it was '72 for whatever reason), so that's a major choke for me, since I'm a presidents AND sports buff :(

Re: April 18, 2012 Teen Online Test Transcript & Discussion

Now looking at the answers, I did get 40/50. I got 5, 6, 10, 13, 23, 32, 36, 39 (I misunderstood and put Nemo :( ), 43 (never heard of it), and 47 (overthought and put hydronium, we are learning this in chem right now).

How long does it usually take for an audition, if you're picked?

Re: I'm a teen signed up for the online test, but I have one thing holding me ba

Thanks again everyone for the advice/help. As Mr. Trebek has been telling you, the test is tomorrow, and, well, this is the first test I've ever wanted to take in my life. I'm feeling confident, and I hope I can get an audition. 35 is generally the minimum, right? Well, thanks again guys.

Re: I'm a teen signed up for the online test, but I have one thing holding me ba

Thanks for all this, I never knew that you get all that out of being in a tournament, haha. But this also brings me to my next question about just general wagering strategy during a tourney... If you're in 2nd place and you would have to wager a good chunk of your money to cover 3rd or be a dollar o...

Re: Thursday, April 12, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Got FJ rather quickly...I precalled Measure for Measure, so I guess I get a couple of bonus points...right?
