I took the on-line qualifying test for Jeopardy! Wednesday night. I have chronicled past attempts to get on that show here and here.
They won't tell how high a score is required to pass the test anymore, but when I tested back in 2002, we were explicitly told the passing score is 35 out of 50. On Wednesday's test, I scored 38. All this really means is that IF they come to Dallas or Houston this year, and IF my name is selected from a random drawing of all the folks who passed the test and selected one of those cities, I can appear in person, take another test, and IF I pass that one, and IF I do a good job in the mock game, and IF they like me enough, I MIGHT get called to be on the show.
So, do me a favor, and don't ask me when I'm gonna be on "Jeopardy!"
