Invitation for Nov 22 in Milwaukee. I'm not sure if I'll be able to audition since I was just on Millionaire in May.

Brief report from my audition this afternoon (switched from the originally scheduled Saturday due to a conflict) in Milwaukee...

20 people - 14 men, 6 women
Also three people from a local TV station who went through the process
Most from Wisconsin, Minnesota and Illinois [besides me (Iowa) and one lady from Manitoba]

Glenn gave some opening remarks, then we practiced calling and answering clues before taking the test (only one, not two)
Q&A with Jimmy while tests were being graded
Mock games
Random prize draw - I won a key chain :)

This was my third audition (counting the one for SJ!) and I feel like each has gone better than the previous one - hopefully "the call" comes this time.

I have almost the exact same trip report, but I won a book in the random prize draw, and this was only my first time at an in-person audition. I've taken the preliminary 50 question test like 15 times, this was the first time I got to talk to a contestant coordinator.

You didn't happen to catch the CBS 58 segment on last night's news, did you? I should try to find it.
