What is “All our hopes and dreams” for $500, Alex?

If you’re one of those people who has multitudes of trivial knowledge and no ways to express your awesome skill, you might want to consider being a contestant on Jeopardy.

The classic quiz show, hosted by Alex Trebek, is looking for new contestants, which means all that time you spent answering all the questions on your couch can finally pay off.

Naturally, in order to be a contestant on Jeopardy, you have to pass a test. This show is a battle of knowledge, after all.

In order to qualify for the test, prospective contestants 18 and over must register on the Jeopardy website. The test itself will be available to take on May 30, 31 and June 1.

In the meantime, between registration and your big test, you can sharpen your skills with practice quizzes where you can pick categories and answer sample questions.

It’s like SAT prep, only way more fun.

The Jeopardy website also has former contestant testimonials, where former guests and winners share their stories about the show. Don’t be intimidated, you don’t have to be a super genius. Just be the knowledgeable, trivia-loving human you already are.

After the test, if you are selected, the Jeopardy team will contact you sometime within the next year to come audition to be on the show. Auditions will be held in a city closest to your personal ZIP code.

Get used to that timer music playing in your head.
