Yes. My revised audition time will be on May 31 at 2:00 in NYC. Got the email invite today.

wow, they're going to one city twice in about five weeks. makes me wonder if they're pulling names by tv market and possibly skipping either Philly or Boston

Pointer, what a coincidence - I’m also going from Newfoundland to NYC! I’m in the April 25 audition group, though.
How did it go? Hope you get the call.
Where in the city did the audition take place?

Thanks for the good vibes! Ask me again about it on April 16th!

Well, I ran a pretty good race- finished in 3:32 - but wow- you really couldn’t have asked for worse conditions. Coldest Boston Marathon in 30 years and the rain never stopped- not once, before, during or after the race. I was traveling for work all week and only had the clothes that I packed, so basically it was a nightmare. And yet- the crowds were amazing and the race definitely lived up to the hype.

Impressive time, morbeedo! I don't run, but I have friends who have run multiple marathons. I don't think Boston was in the cards for them this year, though.

To stick with the topic: Have there been invitations to other cities than New York yet?

There are people on reddit/r/jeopardy mentioning auditions in Atlanta May 13/14/15.

Well done, sir! I'm glad you didn't succumb to hypothermia. A couple of years ago, I did the 5 Boro bike ride in similar conditions. It was miserable, and I can only imagine what it must have been like on foot.

Brain Bus: Asheville 2004. I remember because next morning I woke up with the granddaddy of all hangovers and the first thing I saw when I cut on the TV was someone throwing a cup at Ron Artest

Test: once sometime between 2006-2009 and once in 2012

Email: early October 2012

Audition: Baltimore, December 2012

Taped the last week of March 2013
Hey! I was also at the Brain Bus audition in Asheville. You didn't say hi or anything!

You didn't say how you did, so, how did you do?

My recollection is that they administered the 10-item screening quiz to about 1,700 people in a shopping mall one evening, and invited something like 75 of us who passed (wow...pass rate of about 4.5%!) to a different location to take the 50-item quiz. There I was lucky enough to be one of the 15 or 20 who passed and made it into the contestant pool. Uh, no Call.

Glad you were able to make it to The Show.

Since 2004 I've passed the online quiz more times than I want to think about. I got one invitation to an audition in Indianapolis end of April or beginning of May 2006. Again no Call.

I plan to keep on trying until I either get The Call or my feeble brain can't hack the quiz any longer.

I always figured running (at least distance events) in cold should be great for runners. Running in rain (regardless of temperature, but certainly in colder temps), uh, not so much. Running Boston in 3:32? Way beyond my best. Many congratulations.

You can search on j-archive for the jboard-name of most contestants. I don't know how diligently our archivists keep up with this, but most are there.

Thanks for all the congrats on the Boston Marathon. It was definitely one for the history books! Now I just need to pull together a clown costume for the NYC Marathon on November 4th...

Back to audition news. My co-worker just put me in touch with a guy from our company who has an audition in NYC next week. It's his first audition, so he wants the inside scoop. I'm still waiting for The Call myself, but I'll coach him, prep him and preen him because I'm a nice guy. I'll just have to let him know that if he ends up making the show before I do, well, let's just say I know where he works :lol:

Here is what we have for a schedule so far, I'm sure they are in each location for more than one day, but this gives us an idea of their path. If there are more we know of, please add:

4/25 - NYC
5/17 - Tampa
5/31 - NYC
6/9 - New Orleans (Teen)
Total game show career losings = $171,522

Is there any confirmation for Atlanta? May 13 sounds very unlikely; it's Mother's Day.

Maybe just a typo? Even an ordinary Sunday would seem unlikely.

I was just quoting from this thread: . Seems as reliable as any other post on reddit.

Edit: whoa. the board automatically embeds the reddit thread!
