For those of you in the know: if we auditioned last summer for episodes filmed in 2017 and 2018 (at TCONA, for me), and they say you're in the pool, should we just sit tight, wait for summer to come and hope for the call?

From the casting producer:

We have been getting this question a lot. They will need to fill out a new application and test again. We have updated the casting application quite a bit and will need them to fill out the new one to be eligible for this season

I don’t watch the syndicated WWTBAM, and I’ve lost track of who the host is, but he must be better than Clarkson...right?

Sent in an application as soon as I saw the notice up on Friday, fingers crossed! Figured I can't be much worse than what I've seen over the last two weeks or so.

Bachelor host Chris Harrison is finishing up his third season as host, and does a great job in my opinion. Not sure how he'd handle an Ask the Host, but hopefully the U.S. producers don't get any ideas.

Fingers crossed.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

I know this has been answered with a yes, you NEED to, but just for a fun story...


I got in the pool in about may of 2015, which put me in the pool for 2015 & 2016

In May of 2016, they were in my area, and since I knew 2nd year pool swimmers were rarely called, I went to audition again anyway. I figured if they knew I was in the pool, I would just say, oops, my mistake; and if not, I might get in twice.

Yeah, I was in the pool with two entries! They never realized it and I got the call based on my 2016 audition, and three days before my tape date, they called me based on my 2015 audition. They were obviously confused, but still didn't figure out what I did.

So I sent in a new audition remotely. Crickets. I am super tempted to fly down next week for the beginning of taping and try out again (then if necessary try out again at TCONA).

One site says taping begins Tuesday July 10: https://millionairetv.dadt.com/tickets/

Their ticketing says July 9: http://on-camera-audiences.com/shows/Wh ... illionaire

Should I trust the ticketing site to be correct before I book an airline ticket? There's little chance I could do the Tuesday taping, only the Monday.

I would sooner trust Millionaire’s own site. Possibly the taping schedule changed after the show gave the ticketing site that information.

i would just go to TCONA and audition there because you’re more likely to be noticed.

Another somebody (a former Jeopardy! champion) got the call to tape on 7/19.

I just taped on the 17th. Fun stuff. Will let you know when it airs.
Won some of Ben Stein's money. None of Alex Trebek's, and maybe some of Chris Harrison's?

One thing I’ll add for those considering WWTBAM: my friend the contestant has been on both J! and now Millionaire. He commented that the Green Roon experience at Millionaire, though interminable, was more pleasant than the one at J! We both attributed this to the lack of competition between contestants in Millionaire.
