I just got my invitation to take the online test a few minutes ago. I submitted my video Sunday (9/23) shortly before midnight (ET).

Very good. I wonder if they will be letting people know right up until the night before this time.

What time do you both have to take the test?

Good luck to all of you!

I hate to admit it, but I'm a little bit jealous. I didn't submit a video. I'm not eligible yet, because I'm only 14. I have only four more years to go, though, and I'm getting ready every day.

/ :P \

Michael Davies has said he hates auditioners in blue shirts.

Looks like I had strike 2 with my video.

Once again, if any successful auditioners would like to post their videos (if they feel comfortable doing so), it would be greatly appreciated.

Geez louise, what am I doing wrong?

I'm a 27 year old hottie (ok, maybe not) who got called for Wheel of Fortune 7 days after my in-person audition. I got rejected from the first vid submission, and looks like I'll be rejected from this one too. Trying to crack BAM's code is frustrating.

Nothing here either :(

I know what you mean, jurisdoctor, what could I possibly be doing wrong?

Neither of you are doing anything wrong.

There are more potential contestants than there are contestant slots.

Keep trying.

I know I will.

I got called for a Power of Ten audition based on a video, and I also successfully passed a J! audition (although I drowned in the pool).

But I've never passed a BAM audition...regular or video...in four tries.

But I won't quit.

Thanks for that Jeemie. I know I've impressed them once enough to get to the video interview. I need to go back and remember what I did to impress them.

Anyway, anyone remember the last time what the lastest was that someone got an email? I ask because I want to know if I can stop checking my email every 5 minutes.

Actually, I'm going to stop anyway. I need to mentally prepare for tonight's J! audition test.

Download Firefox and get a notifier add-on. Makes it a lot easier for those of us who habitually check our email. :)

Oh me too.

Even though I'm fairly sure that I'm doubly ineligible.
