I've received confirmation for a May 31 audition. Whether I can actually attend is another matter entirely.

Take me off the board for the time being. I'll have to reschedule. The 31st just plain isn't gonna happen.

Congratulations and good luck, Steve!

Is the audition process the same as it's been or have they changed anything?

Nothing changed, except that I did better.

And now I'm going to spend the next 1-3 weeks overthinking everything about how I did. The guy who went before me for the video interview absolutely killed. He's going to be on the show for sure. He had great stories and after they were done interviewing him they asked him some sample trivia questions as if he was on the show.

When I got on camera I tried to be as energetic as I could, but my interview was shorter than the previous guy's, and they didn't ask me to answer any trivia questions on video. What does that mean? Did they hate me so much I killed my chances right away, or was I obviously so good that they didn't need to see any more? Aaaaaah!

When I got home from the audition, I checked my mailbox for the post card, even though it would defy the laws of physics for it to be there already.

I may ask to be chemically induced into a coma for the next two weeks.

I'm off tomorrow to try my luck. Not too confident since for some reason I felt I passed the test the first time solely based on luck, but we'll see how it goes when I actually get there.

*sigh*

Angry face in this instance. I'm annoyed because my guesstimate by that logic is that I got 23 or 24, because I'd say there were around 20 of them that I got easily, and a few that I had hunches on. I guess what more upsets me is that for this community, getting the angry face means I'm probably in something like the bottom 5th percentile of you guys. Oh well, I get 4 more tries this summer, so maybe I'll try again in a week or two.

Sorry, UniquePerspective.

TPTB still "reserves the right to limit the number of times a person may audition for the show" but they don't mention the specific five audition limit. Even when they did, I don't know any particular instance where the actually enforce that limit. And even if they did, it was probably for someone who kept making it to the interview stage for the quick brush-off.

Frankly, TPTB don't care how many times someone non-passes the written test. Pass it once and impress them with some personality during the interview. That's what they care about.*





*Longtime BBs will notice some bitterness in my reply. They're not wrong.
