December 29, 2006, Newsletter Issue #99: How to become a contestant

Tip of the Week

Testing to be a Jeopardy! contestant usually takes place at Sony Pictures in Los Angeles. However, they often hold auditions throughout the world.

To qualify as a contestant you must take a 50 question test, and if you pass the test you play a mock game. The test is videotaped by Alex Trebek and covers a wide range of categories. The mock game follows immediately after the taking of the test. The whole process takes at most an hour and a half.

If you pass the test and play well in the mock game, you are put in the active file for the current tape year. Being put in the active pool does not guarantee that you will be invited to appear on the show.

To arrange a test you can call Luci at (310) 244-5367. 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM (Pacific Standard Time). You must be over 18 years old, not have appeared on another game show in the past year or have not appeared in more than two game shows in the past year.
