Yikes, thought I got back to you immediately but I guess not. I'll be taping the 13/14th! They were super cooperative in rescheduling. NO CONFIRMED PLUS ONE yet, if people are around and strong in history/literature.

I think I posted the advice they gave me elsewhere- basically to be ultra peppy in the video interview and talk through your answers rather than spitting them out immediately, even if you know it off the bat. Sort of common sense but definitely helpful to be reminded of in the heat of the moment.

I passed the test today, but didn't get video taped, so I guess I didn't make it :(

Enjoy the moment. Take your time and talk things out. The staff is very helpful and wants to see each contestant do well. Chris Harrison is very engaging.

Great job!

Would you happen to know how many contestants they had for your tape date, and how many got bumped into the next day? And of those who got bumped, were they local to Las Vegas?

My taping is this Thursday and I have some concerns about getting bumped into Friday which will interfere with TCONA.

I taped late on the second date I was given. I think there were six contestants given the same dates. Good luck!

Skype interview with 30-question test and a few questions to reason out the answer. I interviewed with three people.

If I were to get bumped, I'd have to find a plus one on Friday, while TCONA is happening.

I can safely say there is not. Hence my Thursday plus one.

Hey all, I auditioned in Indianapolis on June 13th (I think...), got The Call on July 7th, was supposed to tape on August 13th/14th, but got the bump to next Sunday, August 21st. I made it all the way to "on deck" last Sunday night, but Chris Harrison had an 8 o'clock flight to catch and they had to stop taping for the day.

I met a few of you in the green room this past weekend. Good luck to all who were bumped until today!
