On TV

Run into some old friends from another group or board? Want to do a little schmoozing, talk over old times? Or just some off topic stuff, then this is the place.

On TV

Post by BGM » Sun Jul 08, 2012 1:01 am

For those of you who might be interested...

In March, I was in LA and taped an episode of Jeopardy. That episode is scheduled to air this Friday, July 13th. I can't tell you how I did until it airs, so if you are inclined to see if I'm the next Ken Jennings, you can watch and find out!

Wow that's awesome. I didn't realize they were that tape delayed, 4 months is a long time to have to keep quiet.

I have been able to tell family and friends, but am prohibited from posting anything about the results publicly or on social media or in the regular media. What I can tell you is it was really a blast!

I have no way of recording it digitally, unless someone far more tech savvy than I has the ability... would appreciate if someone else who can do it would be willing to share a copy with me. :)

Tough final jeopardy question. I sure as heck had no idea. I did know all the "bull" questions though. My wife was surprised I knew the "boullion" one.

How many did you feel you knew but couldn't buzz in fast enough?

I hate some of the categories they have some times. I didn't know crap on the Kathy bates movies, but would do a lot better on Van Damme movies or something :lol: .

You did well Brian! I thought for sure you were going to win when you went on that hot streak. Tough to lose it all in final Jeopardy, but hey, you did better than I could ever hope to do!

Thanks! It was truly a blast just to be on the show! I knew the answers to all but about 10 or 15 questions. But buzzing in is one of the key things that makes the difference. One of the things we were told during auditions was that contestants know the answers to 90% of the questions and it usually comes down to buzzer timing. Plus, in the heat of the moment, it's really easy to draw a blank!! If any of you ever has the chance to be on a game show, go for it and enjoy every second!
