20Q Audition

I was contacted by a Deal or No Deal casting director to come and try out for a new game show called 20Q. It is based off of the hit home game. They also have an online play at home version, but it is played in reverse (opposite of the TV game show), you think of something and they try to guess what your thinking try it HERE. I am not one of those people who watch game shows or play board games. I was a little leary about it. The only show I ever really watch is Deal or No Deal and I tried to tell him I'm a REALLY good suitcase picker (LOL)...but they are on hiatus right now. He convinced me that I could do this new show. So he told me to get some friends and come on down and make a day of it.

I invited my sister-in-law (a school teacher), my sister and my cousin. They gave us a list of clues and we had to guess what it was. IT WAS HARD! My sister-in-law was the only one who made it to the second round. I got a few of them right...which made me feel pretty good because it was timed and I don't do well with the whole test thing, not to mention most people only got 1 right.

My sister-in-law drove with me...but they didn't let me wait in the room and watch her, they said that she'd be done in about 2 hours. Okay...here's the problem, I don't live in L.A. and that area was really unfamiliar to me (not the best neighborhood.) It was almost 100 degrees, my air conditioner was broken and I had to find somewhere to go. I finally ended up going to Universal Studios City Walk and walked around. It was pretty entertaining (I'm always up for a new adventure.) I headed back around 6:30 and she was done.

She said she didn't do so well DARN IT! I was hoping she would at least get on the show. There's still a chance though. It will definitely be a big hit show. Make sure you watch it and see if you can answer the questions. Don't tell me if you do good because I don't want to feel stupid!

We had a good time and it was another thing that I did COMPLETELY OUT OF MY COMFORT ZONE. Stay tuned for more adventures........

How fun! I've always wanted to be on a game show. I'll be watching for this one. We have the little handheld electronic 20Q game. It's kinda freaky how often it accurately guesses what I'm thinking! Just stopping by from SITS roll call to say hello!

What a shame she didn't make it! It sounds like you still had fun!

Wow! That is an adventure. Not many people have "tried out" for a tv game show. I'll have to be watching for it!

Bummer that you didn't make it. That is a fun board game, but it can be really hard!

Thanks for stopping by my blog this morning. :)

Howdy..

I just googled this new game show, because I got a call today to come and audition too. I'm with you Deal or No Deal, is what I really wanted to go for. I had a call back a year ago, and this is the first I have ever heard from them again. Now after reading this, not sure if I really want to go for this new one. I'm horrible at stuff like that.

Good luck to your Sister...
