So I’m flying to Orlando to audition for Jeopardy tomorrow. I did well enough on the online to get a live, in person shot. Apparently it will be another 50 question written test, interview, and a mock game. I have a feeling the written test will be insanely hard and crush me. I like to believe that I’m charming/funny enough to come across well, or at least better than te typical person you’d expect to meet at an audition for Jeopardy would. Craig (cdbarker.tumblr.com), a former champ, was nice enough to give me some tips going in because he is just that awesome of a guy.
I’m really putting my hopes on the mock game against 2 other would be contestants. As it always goes, my fate will likely depend on the categories I get. Being the huge nerd that I am, I’ve had 2 separate dreams about it this week. In one, I got wheelhoused the whole way: Sports galore, 90s action movies, pop music, law, and mythology with a final Jeopardy question solved with ND Football knowledge. The next night however, I had a similar dream but this time featuring opera, ballet, women in literature and silent film. Either one of these is completely possible. To say I’m nervous is a bit of an understatement. As with most things in life, I’m hoping my ability to bullshit will pull me to victory. Worst case, come back tomorrow night for a potentially hilarious story of my failure.
