Prisoner of Trebekistan: The TV Squad review

by Keith McDuffee, posted Dec 23rd 2006 10:17AM
prisoner of trebekistanTo me, Jeopardy! is the quintessential game show. At the end of a game, I walk away with a sense of awe that those three people could truly have the brains to retain such an amazing amount of information, then be put in front of millions of people to blurt pieces of it out on demand and faster than two other people -- in the form of a question, to boot.

The idea is for this test to reach out to people all over the United States, not just in the cities where Jeopardy! holds auditions. If you pass the test, you may be selected for an interview, an audition, and another test, and then you could be on the show!

If you get on, I dare you to do Darrell Hammond's Sean Connery. I DARE YOU.
