Thursday night amidst my dinner company and after a rousing round of my favorite pre dinner event, playing Jeopardy, I remembered I wanted to try out. For Jeopardy! That’s right, a few nights ago I had noticed they were having their first round of trial online questions that might get you an interview that might get you a test that might get you 5 other steps of something, and then on TV! I had signed up and it was time.
With my audience
suggesting answers cheering me on I crazily ran through 50 questions with 12 seconds each to type in an answer. It was nuts! And to be fair, I rocked it. I must have gotten, at least 5 questions correct. At least.
Ouch. So I might not get that callback. All my smack talking and typical excellence was corralled right there. It is harder than just sitting on the couch shouting out answers. It got me thinking Jeopardy might not be my retirement plan after all. I’m only any good at certain categories. SO I have a new idea.
I want to HOST Jeopardy.
I have to figure out what the requirements are, but I think it’s a safe bet that Trebek will be wrapping up his career in my lifetime, and I need to be waiting in the wings. I’ll preen myself for the takeover. Carey got Price is Right and now it’s my time. I might not look that great on TV, but I could totally do the voices and the accents. Come on. How hard can it be? Not as hard as being a contestant, I bet.
