Do you want a chance to win a cool million? Who doesn’t? Area residents will have their shot very soon.
ABC’s Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? with Meredith Viera is a trivia show lasting 30 minutes, airing each weekday. Guests are quizzed with randomly selected questions. If they answer correctly, they win a randomly selected amount of money.
As watchers know, guests are also given some “help” through resources like “Ask the Audience” or “Jump the Question.” Contestants work their way up the ladder in order to get to the big money, and try to win exactly what the name implies: a million dollars.
Are you the local quizzo champion? Do you always beat family and friends at Trivial Pursuit? If this sounds like something you can totally do, you have your local shot.
On Thursday, Oct. 11 from 1 to 7 p.m. at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, Philadelphia, the show will host regional tryouts. The center is located at 1101 Arch St., Philadelphia.
Audition space will be limited. Those that tryout to be a contestant must be age 18 or over, a United States resident and meet all eligibility requirements. Contestants trying out must not have ever been in the “hot seat” in the past.
During the auditions, guests will be asked to take a written test first. If you pass the written test, a personal interview is conducted with a representative of the show. If you pass that interview, you are placed in a Contestant Pool and are available for selection on future shows.
There is no pre-registration necessary to attend the tryout. Complete and official rules can be viewed at this link.
