I added my name several days ago to the list of wannabes who passed and chose Cleveland, but haven't made it to this list yet.

If I can't be picked by the Contestant Coordinators, I hope I can at least be picked to be on the list of people who want to be picked. :roll:
got it now.
Thanks. One more chance for the CCs to notice my stellar accomplishment and remember me when they pick people for the Cleveland audition (You ARE listening, CCs, aren't you?).

Does that mean there are tour dates set, or no?

I only know the invites are going out, I do not have the dates at this time, but usually they give 3-4 weeks notice, so late March would be good speculation.

Did someone say they got a Portland invite already? Was it posted somewhere on this board?

I chose Portland for both the jan test and the anytime test I took last week. I got a higher score on the anytime test but maybe it doesn't even matter now!

Boo.

Good news (unless you are in my situation and were hoping for a smaller contestant pool 😁)...

Zoom auditions with a 50-question test are coming for the cities on the list!!!

Cool part is nobody needs to travel.

Portland is first up to bat... game on!!!

That is very good news. I'm assuming there is still no schedule for each city?

There never is a schedule, we just find out about them as time goes by.

Maybe it's bad karma to say this out loud, but I kind of hope I don't get The Email this time around for a Zoom audition. Even if I never got on the show, I imagine part of the fun is physically going to the audition and interacting with staffers and contestants, and playing the game live. (Well, at least going to the audition would be for me, since my audition city is within an hour drive.)

More importantly: I want the Jeopardy!(TM) clicky pen!!!
