  1. That was frigging hard.

  2. Was it just me or was that full of music questions…instruments, opera, ballet, composers

  3. I took my shot…

    Meh. I guessed “Henry” instead of “James” on the King when Shakespeare died. I completely “blanked” on “bivalent” vs “covalent” (I usually rock the “Science” questions), and had no clue who “Meghan Trainor” was until I saw a “Skechers” commercial 15 minutes after the test. I’d guess I got 40/50.

      You should take it for real!

      • Andy-

        If I wasn’t clear- I DID take it “for real”… just wasn’t impressed about how I did.

        I actually did a “drunk post” on my video golf forum titled “I need a tutor- stat!” at 4AM the night before because we have lots of Brits there…

        I specifically mentioned “Royalty” and “Shakespeare”- and also asked for any possible help in “Classical Music/Opera”, “Current Pop Culture”, and “Geography”- and I think I even mentioned “19th Century French Lit” as a gag.

        I think I nailed that one… LOL

        Enjoy the site!!!!

    • 40/50 (80%) should get you into the contestant pool.

      • It not the ones that you don’t know that matter, it’s the ones you only think you know, but you really don’t!

        My “guess” of “40” correct probably has a range between 36 and 40… (I’m not a fast typist, so I don’t know how many of those “misspellings/two letters short” answers I will get credit for…)

  4. Doubtful that 40 correct will get you into the pool. I’ve been in the pool twice with scores of 47 and 46. Didn’t make it one year with a 44… Pre-online testing, I believe I put up a 42-44 at an in-person audition…didn’t make the next cut. 4 people out of 100 did. Online makes the pool much larger and therefore, the cutoff is probably much higher. Most Jeopers agree it’s probably at least 84-85%, given the final curve of test scores for each night.

    (Admin edit to strikeout patently incorrect information.)

      I’ve received auditions in the past with scores below 40.

      Anyone who makes the passing grade as set by the show gets put into a random draw for an audition.

      The general consensus for years has been that this mark may be as low as 35.

  5. That said…I thought Wednesday night’s test was the toughest I’ve seen in over twenty years of trying. It was heavy on REAL/TRUE knowledge/acadamia – science, lit, geography, history…and not “gimmes” – Faulkner, Shelley, VanGogh’s Pere Tanguy, Mendelssohn, Gulf of Bothnia, Senate Filibuster – who the heck knows that??? Ac couple of wild(ish) guesses went my way. I’ll take my 45-46 and be hopeful…

      Regarding many of these:
      1) Dutch artist in that time frame = practically Pavlovian for Van Gogh
      2) Gulf of Bothnia = been showing up for years at the bottom level on the show
      3) Mendelssohn = the world-famous wedding march? That’s from Midsummer Night’s Dream.
      4) I can understand why people would want to avoid talking heads, but even as a Canadian, I knew that the runaround that Sen. Franken was being given by the GOP regarding his election and swearing-in was because he was that filibuster-proof 60th senator for the Democrats.

  6. Will you post a video of tonight’s test as well? Thanks!
