I flew out to LA on April 21 to tape my appearance on Jeopardy! I haven’t said anything about it in the various Jeopardy threads, because of eligibility issues. The mere fact that I had read some of those threads raised eyebrows.
Also, you don’t collect your winnings until 120 days after the show airs. You sign an ironclad non-disclosure agreement, and the 120 day deferral is the stick they use to keep you from telliing people in advance what happened.
Rather than field a bunch of questions and reply with “I can’t say,” I figured it was best just to keep mum until the show airs.
But, July 11 is the air date. Following that, I’ll answer all questions about the show and my appearance on it.
For those of you who have passed the test and are waiting to hear from the show about an appearance, my best advice is don’t say anything on message boards or chat rooms. It may not disqualify you, but I promise, you’ll have to explain to someone what you’ve said.
