Casting: Registration Now Open for 2013 “Jeopardy!” Adult Online Test
The time of the year that trivia diehards look forward to is quickly approaching. Registration for the 2013 Jeopardy! Adult Online Test is now available. This is the fifty question entrance exam that serves as the preliminary qualifier to be a contestant on America’s Favorite Quiz Show every year. In order to take the test on one of three examination days – January 8, 9 and 10, 2013 – you must register online at the official Jeopardy! website. You will be led through the application pages, making sure you fall into line with the eligibility requirements. To be able to take the test, you must be 18 or older, from the United States or Canada, cannot have appeared on any version of Jeopardy! since 1984, cannot be related in any way to any Jeopardy! associate, have been to an in-person audition in the last year, have appeared on any kind of game show in the last year (or more than two in the last ten years), or have taken any sort of Jeopardy! application test since last year’s general Adult Test.
Once you pass the checkpoints and verify you can take the test, you will need to fill in all of your personal details. Among the details is choosing a potential audition site. Once you finishing the test, all eligible “passing scores” are put into a shuffle for each audition site and a pre-determined amount of applicants are selected for each audition location. At the audition location, prospects take another 50 question test, play a mock version of the game and go through the personality interview. This event determines who is selected to participate on the actual program. This year’s prospective locations are: Buffalo, NY, Detroit, MI, Huntsville, AL, Kansas City, MO, Los Angeles, CA, Nashville, TN, New York City, NY, Phoenix, AZ, San Antonio, TX, Tampa, FL, Tulsa, OK and Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Once you finish, you’ll be given your confirmation details and a set of days and times in which you can take the test. But remember – you can only take it once per year.
If you even have a slight interest at being a game show contestant, I always advocate trying out for the Jeopardy! Online Test. You might not think you will do well, but so what? Don’t be so negative. You’re not losing any money or anything except 15 minutes of your time in taking the test. You’re more likely to find out you’ve got a lot more knowledge up in that brain than you thought as the answers are pouring out of your fingers. Give it a try. When opportunity knocks, you should at least walk up to the door.
