I Failed to Make the Cut for Jeopardy

I tried out for the contestant search for the Jeopardy game show this last weekend.

I made the first cut with the 10-question pre-test. This winnowed the field from 1500 applicants to 80.

The 80 of us were then invited to take the 50-question the following day. I failed to make this second cut.

The 50-question test winnowed the field to 13. These 13 are effectively in the contestant pool.

I did well enough so that I cannot try to be a contestant on Jeopardy for a year.

I just tried out for Jeopardy and made it to the auditions as well. I didn't make it past that, however.
