Wow, there just really hasn't been a lot happening with this, has there? I'd have hoped we'd have at least gotten word of more online interviews by now.

A friend of mine had a Zoom audition three and a half weeks ago.

San Diego. Seems like they're keeping things fairly local.

Got an audition last month, where i just answered questions, after that the guy who did the interview told me that if i passed there would be a second phase where i and two others would do a mock game, i got the email telling me i passed exactly a month ago, after that it's been radio silent on their end. Haven't heard of anyone say they did the mock game as of yet.

So there's still hope for Chicago. I understand why, in the current uncertainty with when tapings will resume and travel arrangements, they'd still be keeping things close.

It wouldn't surprise me if we reverted to "originally from XYZ city", with lots of LA locals. I think that's how they used to introduce them in the first season or two of the show. Personally, I'd be a little nervous going to a studio even if I were local - but I'd be terrified getting on a plane and flying cross country.

It appears they're still changing things a bit for the Covid era.

Here was my recent timeline:

20 July 20: Email: "Jeopardy! Contestant Audition via Zoom Invite"
22 July 20: An "in-person" test with about 10 other contestant prospects via Zoom.
31 July 20: Email: "Jeopardy! "In-Person" Test Results" that was pretty short: Congratulations! You passed the “In-Person” Test! We are currently working on what will be the next step in your Jeopardy! Contestant Audition process. We’ll be in touch.

Judging from an email I got from The Chase, CA law currently precludes in person auditions for people from outside CA.
