I’ve decided to start preparing to be a contestant on Jeopardy.  I’ve enjoyed the show a lot and I’m not getting any younger, so I thought it’d look into it.  I found a site on the net from a man who was a two-day winner some years back with some insights into how to be a contestant.  And so I’m recording the show now (dvr is my friend) and I just did the first show using his method (you keep track of which answers you get right on the board, not counting Daily Doubles or Final Jeopardy) to come up with a score.  The goal is 32,000 and I just got 19,800 without any additional training based on the guidelines given on that site.  I’m pleased.  I had a couple of categories that I was useless in, and had a couple of answers that I wasn’t sure about that were right (and some wrong guesses). 

Relatively pleased.  And it was fun.

  1. I’m figuring it’ll be a year (at the soonest) before I try to get into the contestant pool, and then up to 18 months in the contestant pool. So watch this space, but don’t hold your breath.
