I should add I was at the West Palm Beach Audition May 8 (noted on page 1), if that helps inform on the timing of the process.

Good luck and congrats on Columbus, guys!

+1. Any producers reading, please make this happen.

Is it that you can't have appeared on two other game shows within a set time period? I remember morbeedo had to decline the call because he had appeared elsewhere.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

You must not have done any other game shows in the past year or more than 2 in the past 5 years.

Now exactly what their definition of “done “ is isn’t explained. Tape date? Air date?

I would suspect airdate but also not between tape and air.

Watch me get to Vegas and they say, sorry, clown, you can’t audition for 3 more months!

More importantly, if I do Jeopardy in 2019/2020, then I’m banned from other shows for 5 years?? Guess I was born too soon and started too late!

And yes, the hammer should break Jeopardy

true, but he didn't get specific on why he was invited to Columbus, so it could be any Columbus, including ones I NHO.

Agreed. If there was a TOM in there, I missed it. I'm not even sure how y'all knew 'Columbus' referred to a city. Thought maybe a rave or something.

You guys are mean but also funny.

Good luck TPH!

I've had several spam calls this week and hallucinated seeing a 310 area code every time. Only 17.5 more months to go...

Good luck to you, Bobby. Break a leg, as they say. Now just Mikwaukee and Chicago to hear from?

ETA: Nope, Houston and Seattle have yet to report in — hope I didn’t give you a heart attack, Reddpen and bomtr

Got the invite for Columbus the other day, but waited to share just because I wanted to confirm there wouldn't be an eligibility snafu because of WWTBAM. Guess I should be extra glad I aired during Week 1 last season!

Will the 5th time be the charm?
