The Chase is On

So I had to sign a bunch of scary non-disclosure agreements when I tried out for The Chase, so there's not much I can talk about the actual audition process. But I'll talk about all the other stuff.

The night before, I went to bed at 8 p.m. so I could wake up bright and early. It was a good thing I did, too, because Greg woke up at 2 a.m. and threw up all over me. I cleaned him and me up but couldn't get back to sleep. That gave me plenty of time to get a shower and pretty myself up for the audition.

I had my nails retweeted by The Chase's twitter account.

There was construction going on near the hotel, so I had to park a half-mile away. I'm glad I went to the 8 a.m. because I'm sure parking was even worse later in the day. I met Andy Gefen, who runs the JBoard discussion forum on Jeopardy!, as well as Candy, the only other woman there and a fellow LLama (LearnedLeague).

The audition was finished in time for me to get back home for Brendan's Trike-a-thon at 11, then at 4 I went to my trivia semi-finals for my pub team. We won, so we're going on to finals this Saturday and a chance at the $1000 prize.

I got a callback, and once again I chose the earliest time. I feel like it went okay, so now its all up to casting. They're doing 13 episodes this season, so they only need 39 people. Jeopardy! by comparison chews through 400 contestants a season. But I have one thing most auditioners don't-two x chromosomes.
