Now that I'm on a real keyboard...
Other than the same old same old everyone reports about these auditions, there was about 40% female in our group.
If this group was typical, and from all the audition experience from other shows, I don't see why it wouldn't be, I'm feeling good about my chances.
Some didn't dress the part, some didn't interview well, some didn't get the hang of the buzzers. Everyone did a good job of picking categories and dollar amounts, and moving the game along. When it came to what to do with the money, I think I was the only one with something out of the ordinary, and it was obvious they liked what I said. I also gave my occupation as Pub Trivia Host, so this would check the box of not being an occupation we see on the show all the time. Plus I'm not from New York, Boston, or Washington, DC. Then as TPH said, he thought I did well from what he could see.
While we all know they call on whoever they want instead of who buzzed in first, I will say they do that so they can see what they want to see from each person (as I said above regarding being able to play the game). I happened to be up there with two other people who played well, spoke up when speaking, and moved the game along, so Corina didn't need to pick and choose who would answer after we went through the first few clues. With my experience in playing other trivia games, having been to TCONA and playing against some of the best, and my race car driver reflexes, she actually seemed to get a little bored of always calling on me to answer as I kept winning the buzzer race.
So now I'm feeling good, and hoping I get the call sooner rather than later.
