    i LOVE games and movie stars – just imaging both of them together is a dream! my sweet hubby and i totally enjoy watching this show. and the possibility of winning $25,000 would be AMAZING! pick me – pick me, you won’t regret it!!!

  4. Erin McKenzie

    Being on a game show is an item on my bucket list and I would love the opportunity to compete with a fun group of celebrities. My family knows me as a person that is competitive and is always looking to have fun. I’m 25 years old, from western Wisconsin and about to graduate with my second college degree. Please pick me so I can check an item off of my bucket list and win some money with great people to pay off my student loans

  5. Lisa Conley

    I am a huge fan with a brain full of knowledge only applicable for a game show like Hollywood Game Night. Please give me an opportunity to put this otherwise useless plethora of pop culture knowledge to use!

  6. Dean

    You probably wouldn’t want me on the show. I might fit in “too well” with the rest of the players.
    My ONLY qualifications are that I do watch more TV than I should and I get Entertainment Weekly. Although, I do like a well stocked bar.

  7. Anthony Costello

    My name is Anthony Costello and you soooo have to give me a shot at this!

    Being on a game show is truly on my bucket list…and I LOVE HOLLYWOOD GAME NIGHT! I’ve tried (unsuccessfully) to get on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire…Yikes, those questions were hard! They never even got the chance to see my party-like personality. I’ve also auditioned for American Bingo Night and got a call back, but alas the show was canceled before I was on. I really feel as if network TV is still looking for just the right vehicle to showcase my special brand of talent. I’m also thinking HGN just might be that vehicle.

    A little more about me personally… I am a single 49 year old guy and the youngest of 10 (count’em 10) children aged 49 (me) to 59 (yup, 10 in 10 years). I have 20 nieces and nephews, 62 first cousins and countless 2nd cousins and friends. My appearance can only increase your viewership, if only for that week. I am a process improvement guy at a local utility company in Philadelphia. I’ve worked here for 28 years, so I could use a little excitement like being on a game show, although I once did radio and TV spot for my employer a few years back. All that being said, in my spare time I am on a winning Quizzo team with some siblings and friends. My addiction to TV, movies and various other infotainment is beyond compare. To be able to showcase all of this AND meet the inimitable Jane Lynch is almost too much to fathom. Did I mention that most people think I’m easy on the eyes? Speaking of eyes, mine are a startling blue that light up on TV…just saying.

    Finally I love, love, LOVE HGN! It has been a DVR series recording at my house since it first aired. Some favorite episodes included Julie Bowen, Mark Feuerstein and Henry Winkler. Hmmmm, I hope that’s enough for now. So c’mon kids, give me a call! You will not be disappointed.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  8. Cynthia zicari

    I absolutely love this show it is funny as hell I also love the TV personality stars. I watch a lot of TV and have my favorite shows like NCIS person of interest Franklin and bash just basically every night I have a different TV show my son always tells me to shut up everytime I get a question right and then he says that there’s no way that I would make it on this game show and I want to prove him wrong.i am a single mom with a 17 year old 15 year old and a 13 year olds with 3 dogs and 10 cats my charity would definitely be the Animal Foundation or Humane Society or the Wildlife Foundation I’m from El Paso originally from Las Vegas please pick me

  9. derrick pendleton

    I am a resident of Kansas city Mo. the show me state.
    Pick me so your viewers can see the show me state in action.
    Nuff said

  10. Maria Jefferson

    HUGE FAN!!!! If you choose me to be on the show (and I hope you do), Jane Lynch will be a fan of mine!

    I am a 38 yr old mother of 3 girls!! 20 (yes, 20), 4 and 1. I’ve been a labor and delivery nurse for over 15 years. 1st generation Italian- American, both parents from Sicily, and so I became the 1st college grad of my family!! I am as feisty and fiery as a textbook Aries can get!!!

    I always keep my family’s head spinning with a new endeavor. Keep up the great work with the show!!

  11. Christen

    I LOVE Jane Lynch as much as I love pop culture!!! Something like this would be a once in a lifetime opportunity! Who couldn’t use some cash to pay some bills while having fun at the same time?!

  12. Mike

    I would obviously make an excellent candidate for any role in a production starring the inimitable Amy Poehler, who I consider to be a treasure. I am psychically attuned to her mondo-bizarro landscape of possibility and my being on the set could only enhance the collective comic mind at work. I was in a movie as an extra before, and loved it. I am a college graduate with some time on my hands so this would be perfect. I think you would find me to be a delight if you were to cast me. Also, I’ve done some unpublished writing of my own, but that’s not what were here to talk about. I’m a huge Saturday Night Live fan and feel that my comic sensibilities are in tandem with theirs, but also stray into the nether regions where you might be like “Wow, who’s that guy.” If you consider me you won’t be disappointed.

  13. Lindsey Oliva

    Buzzfeed, Netflix, and Candy Crush are all daily necessities for me if that tells you anything about my love of pop culture and competition. And honestly hourly might be a more appropriate word to use in that sentence. I had a dream that I met Amy Poehler, but every time I tried to take a selfie with her she put something in front of her face. I would like you to make that dream come true, but also destroy it at the same time. I would love to meet her and play on her team on this show, but have her not put anything in front of her face when we take a selfie together. I personally, don’t think that’s too much to ask for. The ball is in your court.

  14. jenna

    I enjoy this game show and the people on it. I love (and know) a lot about pop culture/entertainment, I love playing games, and I wanna meet famous people.

  15. Danny Collins

    Ok…washed up cruise director, now real estate agent, gay and full of life! This has my name written all over it! I am 43, still got it going on! Adore games, and a good Martinti. I love to laugh, I’m not shy, and not obnoxious! This is a perfect match for me…Sean Hayes and I have lots of mutual friends as I grew up in the Musical theater circuit of Chicago…Ask around. Life of the party! OOOoh oooh pick me Mr. Kotter!!! LOL!!

  16. Michelle Kinley

    I must get on this show! I’m a crazy 54 year old woman that has a serious zest for life, laughs, fun and making a fool,of myself any chance I can get! I’ve been watching this show since it started and I’m serious, I could do some serious damage and make a lot of people laugh at the same time. I’m ready and willing to audition for this wonderful crazy show!

  17. Katie

    I’m super fun!! What more is there to know. I’m 43 years old and know pop culture or at least I think I do. I work in marketing special events and don’t get nervous about anything. Go ahead ask me anything!

  18. Amber E. Haas

    It would be an incredible experience to be a contestant on Hollywood Game Night (HGN). I’ve been binge watching the show ever since I discovered its existence and am only bummed I hadn’t found out about it sooner. I work in the service industry as a waitress at Cafe 21 Gaslamp in sunny San Diego, CA and was fortunate enough to meet and take care of Ms. Jane Lynch herself. Due to that, I was inspired to instantly look up her work and thus found this ‘diamond in the rough’ of a show! My girlfriend and I can’t get enough and would love nothing more than to have a fabulous game night in the Hollywood hills with all of these awesome energies. Please give me the opportunity to compete and help raise money for a great cause and myself would be a pretty sweet dea too!!! Seriously, what a fun concept to do what my friends and I LOVE doing, that is drinking and playing games similar to those on the show, and meet new fun people. (Down to earth celebrities, how cool is that!) ONE LOVE

  19. Irene Kolivas

    I’m a 27 year old woman with a fun personality. I’ve worked at trader joes for the past ten years, and I absolutely love it. I adore this show. I’ve seen every episode and can’t help but think I’d be great at it. I find myself yelling answers and clues at the tv, everytime I watch. The game show is well written and I adore Jane Lynch! I’d love the opportunity to get to scream those answers, on the show! Let’s party!

  20. David Altieri

    Hi! I’m outgoing , fun and LOVE games! This sis my Fav show on TV and I would Kill (Not literally) to be on this show! Did I mention how much I adore Jane Lynch? I live here in the San Fernando Valley so just think of the money you would save on my flight and hotel stay? PLEASE consider me!

  21. Whitney

    Hello! I am a 26 year old woman with a huge love and passion for tv and film. Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve been a media addict. Nothing makes me happier than watching a new critically acclaimed film or show. My favorite actors and actresses include Julia Roberts, Tom Hanks, Amy Poleher, Chris Pratt and Reese Witherspoon. I have many, many more favorites but that might take up the whole discussion board.

  22. JJ

    Hi! I’m a recently married (1 month anniversary today!) 26 year old living in Queens, NY and working as an executive admin for a financial firm. I am a pop culture and game show junkie! As a child I would watch re-runs of Card Shark and Password among others on GSN. I watch Hollywood Game night religiously and I’m too fun not to have on the show! 🙂 Getting a chance to be on the show would be an unbelievable story to tell people win or lose, but winning $25,000 doesn’t hurt either! It would definitely help towards starting a family!

  23. Dena aka "D"

    I am a 31 year old lesbian looking for something to change in life. I work for California Pizza Kitchen as a Culinary Lead and watch this show all the time. I grew up as a young girl with my nonno watching game shows and always pictured myself on one. When Jane came out with this show I needed to be on here. It would mean a lot to me to just have the privilege of not only meeting a hero of mine but to have fun with her at the same time. Please consider me.

  24. Octavio Magana

    I am a 42 year old Mexican-American social worker. Married and father of three. True fan of the show, have not missed an episode and have even caught reruns. I am funny but serious, quiet but loud, competitive but a great sport. I live in a town that few people have probably heard of. You ask that I explain why I should be on the show, my answer is simple Why not?

  25. Jennifer Justice


    I love this show. My whole family watches it.
    It’s interfering with my sleep (I keep dreaming about it, always, every night).

  26. Cat

    How about a Canadian? I love this show and would totally kick ass! I’m a 44-year-old divorced mom of two teenage girls from Calgary, Alberta. Gimme a chance coach!

  27. Amanda Martinez

    I am a 34 yearl old single mom and Marketer. I live in Miami,FL and absolutely love Hollywood Game Night. I host many of my own hilarious game nights and would
    love to be a part of yours. $25G would finally render the useless Wikipedia/Google information clogging up my mind, useful. Would love the opportunity!

  28. Rachel Steele

    My name is Rachel. I’m a legal assistant is Stephenville, Texas. I’m 29 years old and I love all things related to Hollywood trivia. Pick me!!!

  29. Matthew Gilbert

    I am a 31 year old Branch Manager of a Bank in the Chicago Suburbs who is a DIE-HARD movie and pop culture lover who loves to laugh and play games. Sounds like a perfect fit right? I want an opportunity to win 25k to share with my two boys, Sean and Kyle and my lovely wife Jen. I watch the show every time it is on and am a huge fan! Love what you do!

  30. Jared

    Im a 29 year old union carpenter from Chicago, IL and I was never much of a game show guy until I began watching Hollywood game night and now I do not only enjoy watching it but I MUST be on it!! I could write all day on reasons why i should be considered for casting but why bore you. My main reason would be to put all of my ( up until now) nonsense research I randomly perform on all Hollywood type things such as movies, actors etc. over the past years that my wife and friends all bust my chops over so it would be great to be able to put it to use and im extremely awesome to play games with which is just a bonus and who couldnt use 25k! Look forward to hearing from you .. This season, next season whatever!

  31. Debbi Rightler

    I LOVE game shows! I watch HGN every week, I LOVE the show and I know I would win! I grew up in a huge VERY competitive, VERY hyper family and we made teams every holiday to play charades. I AM the party and I’m great for this show!!! CLUEBOOM!

  32. Jaime McAvoy

    Music, movie , and tv trivia are my life. I feel like I missed my calling not trying to work in the industry on a set somewhere. I have so much fun watching the show and have seen so many actors and comedians that I love and respect it would be a dream to be on this show. It would probably make my life. My sibs and I constantly compete over trivia and argue who is most suitable and would kick the most butt on this show. Please let it be me!

  33. Liz L

    I own the board game and have watched every episode. I am a huge fan! Not only do I love board games but enjoy having the opportunity to hang with celebrities even more. I am always the one within my group of friends to get a party started and am not afraid of making a fool of myself. I would love the opportunity to be on the show!!!

  34. michael avant

    Hey guys, I’m a 30yr old father of two from Houston, tx. I am a movie/music/entertainment rain man. I am always disturbing friends and family with the things I know about entertainment and pop trivia. I would be a great contestant because I’m a good ole simple laid back dude that I think viewers would relate and root for.never tried to get on a show but have always wished to be. Please consider me for an audition so i can show my wicked pop knowledge. I would be a great contestant and would be a dream come true. Thank you so much and have a good one.

  35. Lacey

    OMG!!! This show is awesome! I wouldn’t even need to win any money – I would pay you guys to be on this show! Anyways, I’m a 31 year old teacher from Southern California. I’ve been told on countless occasions that I have way too much useless pop culture trivia in my head. And how cool would it be for my students to see their teacher on TV?!?

  36. Katie

    My husband and I watch every show together. We love it. He suggested I try to get on the show since I am so good at all the games.

  37. Jaclyn P

    LOVE this show! Find myself laughing out loud (by myself) at the games. I am a fun, competitive person, and love to play games. Just looks super fun 🙂

  39. Theresa Hoskins

    I am a mother of four children(two are grown) and I think I have a pretty good knowledge of pop culture. I love watching Hollywood Game Night and I yell out answers at times. I would love to have that much fun and hopefully win money at the same time. Thank You.

  40. Peggy McNeff

    I am smarter than a fifth grader…oh wait, wrong show! I am, however, a teacher who loves trivia and all things pop culture. Won’t you consider this non-celebrity to play with some real celebrities on Hollywood Game Night?

  41. Travis Kimbrell

    My name is Travis Kimbrell and I am the most competitive person I know. I’m 29, a project engineer, live in Dayton, OH and I’m a fitness and sports enthusiast. Board games and game nights have been a staple in my life since I can remember. My family and friends continue to play them to this day. I assure you if you get me on this show you won’t be disappointed. The problem is, if you get me a half-way decent celebrity team, you will lose $25,000 because there is no chance I’m leaving there without it. Jane Lynch is a rockstar and I would love to hang with here and some other celebrities. So give a chance to a fella from the midwest. Thank you!

  42. Alana Tipton

    I would love to be on this show, it’s my favorite! I love Jane Lynch and this show has the best and most hilarious celebrities ever! I am from the bay area so that should tell you first how crazy and quicky i am. I would be perfect because of my hyper, outgoing personality and my crazy knowledge of tv shows, movies, actors, singers and everything else they play! I love an and all board games.My husband and I watch this show all the time and we cannot get enough! I hope you pick me!

    -Alana T.

  43. Donnell Smith

    I think I would do a fine job on the show…and hopefully win. I watch along and guess from home and I find myself yelling the answer out correctly nearly every time. Plus I could REALLY use a step up for starting my non-profit dog rescue / adoption group! :0). Oh, and I am desperate for a vacation. ;0)

  44. Kayla

    I hope to be picked because of my personality and the need for my family of this chance. I have been told my whole life I need to be on tv and think I would fit in great in this show. Thank you

  45. Mary

    My names Mary and I haven’t missed an episode and my family is all about family game nights. As the baby of the family it’s my time to sparkle! As an aspiring woman engineer and part time worker at babies r’ us I could really use some cash. But even if I lose it’s the experience, memories and fun that I really want and will cherish!

  46. Jack Brenner

    Hollywood Game Night is my dream game show come true! Everything people always tell me I know better than anyone else. Pop Culture is the reason people have me on their phone a friend list if they ever get on Millionaire; so I myself have been waiting for the perfect game show for me. I found it when I started watching Hollywood Game Night! I really look forward to the opportunity of matching wits with hollywood celebs!

  47. Amy Simard

    My husband and I watch this show all the time and LOVE it! We thought it might be fun to have spouses be the team captains on opposing teams and we’d love to be your first couple! We are very competitive with each other at home so it would surely be entertaining on live television!

  48. Michele Marnati

    Hello, my name is Michele and I am 33 yrs old. I am a waitress at Olive Garden, but going to school for dog grooming. I love watching Hollywood Game Night, and it would be awesome to be on the show. I think I would do great on this show, I watch a lot of movies and know my actors. I am a little shy at first, but I will get over the shyness real quick 🙂 25 grand would be great for my family and I.

  49. Jayme Simoneau

    My family loves this show! And when we watch, my kids tell me I should be on it because I know most of the answers.

  50. Meredith

    I am a 21 year old single mother about to graduate with a double bachelors. I LOVE trivia, games, and I am competitive, but fun! I quip with the best of them, and who doesn’t enjoy a drink and some cash ;)? PS: Lauren graham would be my ideal teammate

  51. Daniel Lococo

    I’m tall, dark and handsome; smart and quick witted; funny and entertaining; and lastly, I was born to be in the spotlight!!!

  52. Mrs. Tracey Johnson-Leonard

    ‘Who laughs last, laughs best, right.’ I’m all about laughing, joking and playing games. I am a very fun and entertaining person to be around with loads of energy. People really enjoy my company.

  54. allie smith

    I am 66 years old and love to laugh. I watch your show every week and know I can bring both laughter to your studio and television audience. I am a lung cancer survival for three years, but you wouldn’t know it from the decibels of my laughter and shouts. I would love to continue to share my fun loving life on your show. Waiting to hear from you soon.

  55. Kimberly Barr

    I’m signing my mom up! We love watching the show together, its so fun! She’s 40 years old beautiful women who has been in the Air Force for over 20 years(: ! It would be soo awesome if she was on the show!

  56. Christopher Giusto

    This is the game show I waited and trained for my whole life. I knew sitting in front of the TV my whole life would come in handy some day. Lol. I’m a Pop Culture fanatic. A game show fanatic. And all “fun Bobby”. Lol. I currently won the battle of cancer and am in remission. I am unable to work due to the damage the cancer has done to my back so WINNING would help out a ton!!
    Mostly I’d like to hang out with Jane, in her “home” with her fabulous friends!!
    Please consider me. I’m a funny guy!

  57. Alex Layden

    I’m Alex! I’m a 21 year old college student that is majoring in Communications. I have seen every episode of Hollywood Game Night, and I can’t help but believe that I belong on this show. I’m obviously outgoing (but what applicant doesn’t claim to be), I have been reading my mom’s issues of People Magazine since I was 12 (don’t tell her), and I would obviously love to have some extra money to pay off these potentially daunting college loans awaiting me once I graduate. You have never had a student contestant on HGN, and I would be honored to be your first.

  58. Ursula

    Hello, I am 39 and in the Santa Barbara area (can we say easy commute to the show). I want to be on the show to play the games. I love playing all types of games and I play to win! I don’t really care about being on TV but would love the chance to play games with celebs that we all know and love (or hate :0).

  59. Jan Linklater

    Hi I’m Rachel Linklater and I’m 10years old my mom jan Linklater is 49 years old, we watch your show almost every single time it’s on and we really like it.

    Thanks, bye.
    P.s.it will help pay for my college!!:)

  61. Danielle Martin

    I’m a psychiatrist and mother of two children and could use some fun in my life. I think this show is hilarious and I have a lot of pop culture clogging my brain. Jane Lynch is a comedic genius. And I’d totally be ok with losing and chilling at the bar!

  62. Troy Ashbaugh

    My name is Troy Ashbaugh I am 38 yr old Police Officer in Vernon,TX. I would be great on your show because movies and pop culture history are my interests. I watch the show with the family and answer a good 90% of the questions before the clue or buzzer is sounded. If you put me on the show its a win win situation for the both of is thank you

  63. Daniel

    I’m a 32-year-old copywriter working in LA till August. I love me some board games. There’s nothing better than a room full of people shouting and competing and laughing, except maybe when those people are celebrities and I can win 25 grand and also it’s aired on network TV. Bring it on!
