At the beginning of last month, I took an online test for potential contestants of Jeopardy!, in the New York area. I learned about it about an hour before it started, and signed up as a bit of a lark.
Not surprisingly, it was pretty rapid-fire. The test lasted about 15 minutes, and they don’t tell you your score. They just say you’ll be contacted if you did ‘well enough’. I thought I did OK, not great, and probably not well enough to make the grade. I thought that was that and forgot about it.
Apparently though, I did OK enough, as I’ve been invited to the next round in a couple of weeks. I’m not expecting though, to be co-hosting Today with J. Fred Muggs, anytime soon.
