Jeopardy! Online Test


Last night, I took the Jeopardy! online test. I'm technically ineligible to be a conestant for a few more years because I worked for a station that broadcasts the show. But you are still allowed to take the test for fun. It's a good thing I didn't have my heart set on being on the show this year because I did miserably on the online test! It's rather difficult to read the category, clue, think of the asnwer and type it in submit all under 15 seconds. The pressure doesn't help. I'm usually really good at Jeopardy! when I watch on TV but the clues/answers/questions for the online exam were tough. I was only sure of a few and I skipped a bunch. There were a number of categories I wouldn't have been able to answer with all the time in the world. I knew it was going down hill when I got a Baltimore Ravens' question/answer. But I'll continue to play everyday at home. I'm looking forward to the IBM challenge with Watson!

If you haven't ever taken the test or are just curious how it works, take a look at this video that someone recorded. See how well you might have done!
