Take the Jeopardy test for a chance to become a contestant

Cleveland area residents can take an online test for a chance to appear as a contestant on Jeopardy, which airs at 7:30 p.m. weekdays on WOIO Channel 19.

The online test will start at 8 p.m. Oct. 9 and will be given only once. Adults (ages 18 and older) can take the test, but must register in advance and be logged in up to half an hour before the test runs.

Registration can be done online through a link on the Action 19 News home page.

The test is a 50-category/50-clue test and is almost exactly the same as the "in-person" audition test. It is given in a strict, timed format, proceeds from #1 to #50 without stopping, and there is no time for review at the end.

Results are graded and given to the contestant department for random selection for in-person auditions in December. At the in-person audition, applicants will take yet another 50-question test to make sure their scores jibe, stand up and play a mock version of the game and engage in a short personality interview with the contestant coordinators. The whole process takes about two hours.
