I never wanted to dare to dream I’d be a re-run, but here we are. The day has come! My 2016 one-and-done is airing (has aired) tonight, and hells yeah, let’s see if we can change the past and not have me bet so much money on Final Jeopardy because my brain completely shut down?
I’ve finally been able to start watching the show more regularly than before – it’s tough to do so at times, but it can’t be denied how fun it is watching Jeopardy!.
I was on Jeopardy, and I wrote all about my experience, from taking the online test, getting that audition (finally), nailing that audition, and then the craziness of getting the call and then being on the show.
Talking about the audition after luckily getting selected from the pool on online test takers:
Jeopardy! – The Second Round
Here’s my thoughts on the actual day of recording my episode:
Day-Of Jeopardy! Taping Thoughts & Reactions
A few days later, some more sober reflection – believe me, the reflection continues still, but can’t change the past:
Post-Game Analysis & Thoughts, a Few Days After
Here’s the reactions when the episode actually aired in November 2016:
Hey, it’s Jeopardy Week for me!
Larry edited my chat with Alex and we tweeted it over to the flamazing host of the Hollywood Bowl Sound of Music Sing-A-Long, Melissa Peterman….and she responded!
So yeah, I’m ready for my second round of fame due to my Jeopardy Experience. It’s gonna happen. My body is ready. Regardless of any of that, still very excited to go again this year.
Happy days – after our fun Downtown Day yesterday, when I checked the mail, only one thing was in there, and it was a beauty: I got my prize money from Jeopardy! finally!!!! That $2k doesn’t have any immediate destinations, but it’s awesome nonetheless to get the money. My experience is now complete, which is a touch bittersweet. Damn you, Netherlands!!!
First Step: Get on Jeopardy! EASY. Click here for those easy steps! 🙂 (Spoiler alert, that’s just all my posts related to Jeopardy – but perhaps you’ll get something out of it?)
Second Step: ….
Third Step: Profit! errr….I mean, talk about your experience with other former contestants!
#JeopardyLivePanel – Season 3 Episode 9, Live Roundtable (December 17, 2016 8:00 PM Eastern)
I was graciously invited to participate in this fun Youtube / Google Hangout hosted by The Jeopardy! Fan, and I got to meet up with Amy, Bridget, and Chelsea who participated in shows this past week, in addition to also talking with Ryan who taped the same week as I did. Talked about a whole host of things about the show, and before we knew it, 90 minutes had gone by! So if you haven’t had your fix of seeing me on your screens, as well as hearing some of the great inside stories about filming episodes with the current champ, Cindy Stowell, check it out!
If you haven’t heard about Cindy, she’s the current bad-ass champion of Jeopardy who played the game while suffering from terminal cancer. She was fighting through fever and weakness during these episodes and she has been playing like a boss. The tragedy is that she died earlier this month, before her episodes started airing. I know I didn’t expect to see her claim a victory, let alone FOUR! And here she is, racking up the wins amidst all the external factors that would rightly be something that could knock others off their game. Chelsea, who you’ll see in the video above, got a good idea started to donate money to the Cancer Institute, to the tune of $1 for each answer clue you get right on Jeopardy. I haven’t been keeping track of that, but just donating money to them is a laudable action, with every bit helping.
