I Bombed at the Philly Millionaire Audition

I was one of the people who took the “Who Wants to be a Millionaire” test at the Pennsylvania Convention Center Saturday.

Unfortunately, I did not pass the test.  Around 200 people in my group took a 30 question multiple choice test.  Only the top 20 people got to move on to an interview with a producer.

I was a little surprised there weren’t more people there.

I made the prime time version in 2000, but it was when there was still the fastest finger part, and I did not make the hot seat.

  1. Laura, my guess is that not that many people wee at the Millionaire audition because they did not know about it. I would have liked to try just to s ee how I would do, but I had no idea they were in town.

  2. Sharla Feldscher

    That’s so interesting, Laura! I guess it’s even more impressive that Eddie Bruce not only passed the test, he made it on the show for two days last May.
    Try again, Laura … ya’ never know!

  3. New Clear Power

    I didn’t even know Millionaire was in town. I went up to NYC to audition a couple of years ago but got into “movie week” (which I didn’t know I was auditioning for until I got there). Needless to say, my knowledge of bad movies wasn’t good enough to make the cut.

  4. What were a few of the questions, Laura? I’d like to try it. I’d rather be a millionaire instead of a celebrity.

  5. TM. Who is buried in Grant’s tomb?

  6. Oh that’s easy, Connected. It’s Grant! Or maybe one of my heros, Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman. I thought some questions would be hard or tricky… like who’s a better general manager, Ed Wade or Ruben Amaro.

  7. TM – See ? You got it !

    Here’s another one….

    What color was Geo Washington’s white horse ?

    Of course, the questions get harder as you go along.

    Like….. What’s the cube root of 17 ?

    And……What causes dust ?

  8. Horse? White.
    Square Root? 4.1231056…
    Dust? Chris Wheeler blowing his nose.

    I think I’m passing all the tests.

  9. I glad none of you guys noticed or mentioned my haircut. Man did that barber hack my sides. It was a bad cut. Ed Wade recommended Joe’s in Pitman to me. That will be the last time I go to Joe.
