    Hello everyone I’m cymwana, I feel I am a great candidate for the show because first of all throughout all the 22years of my life I’ve learned alot, second this is my favorite show, I watch it every day, and last but not least I have this game show app on my phone, which means I play it alot, just about every day. I know the type’s of questions that are asked on the show, and I know for sure I can bring this show even more fame than it already has because I know alot of people(famous people at that).

  4. Laura S.

    Greetings! I would very much enjoy being on your show -not only would it give me a chance to put my knowledge to the test, but also have a blast doing it.

  5. Morris DuBose III

    As an ex-homeschooler, ex-private schooler, and public school grad, with a love of reading and a knack for telling stories, I’m a character with a bag full of trivial information.

  6. Kimm Hunt

    I think I could be a fantastic contestant on the Million Second Quiz. I’m a 43yo homeschooling mom. I’m bright, enthusiastic and in need of a vacation. Plus I can fall asleep just about anywhere.

    I’d like to demonstrate to my daughters that the lifelong nurturing of a burning intellect and insatiable curiosity can develop not only your mind, character, and personal trivia repository, but also your financial portfolio, given the right opportunity and application. Additionally, my husband would like for me to start pulling my own weight around here, as I’ve spent the last 13 years raising our children full-time.

    Thanks for your consideration.

    Kimm Hunt

  7. Jeff Houston

    Hi, my wife has been telling me for 15 years that I should try to get on a game show. For some reason I retain useless knowledge, so I thought I wold try. I am a normal guy, I guess that depends on your definition of normal. Please give me another chance to prove my wife right. Thank you

  10. geno

  11. CJ

    A big “HEY” to the people of million second quiz game show. My name is CJ and I’m 19 years old. In my community I feel there really isn’t much for kids to do except go to a park or head over to the casino which isn’t bad but I feel there should be more places for kids to hang out. Recently most of the new places being built around our town have been food places. If I received the opportunity to be on this show I’d want the money to not only benefit my family moving into the house of our dreams but to provide people with a place to really hang out, keeping kids out of trouble and truly having fun and enjoying being the kids that they are. I truly think my sister would be a good candidate for this show because she truly is very smart because she is like a sponge of knowledge always looking for answers and trying to learn about anything she can possibly learn about which I find is a very awesome quality in life, it’s a blessing. I jus t wanted to extend a blessing to all the hopeful people who want to be contestants on the show as well as well wishes. This would be a fantastic opportunity and we’d love to be one of the hopeful chosen.

  12. Dean Lykos

    I would like the opportunity to be on this game show.I think it would be extremely entertaining.
    I would really like the opportunity to challenge myself. I would love to do more than just work.

  13. John Viscum

    I am a funny guy. My college degree is English Lit–owned a sports bar for 15 years. And 1 TV was always for my favorite game shows. I deal poker @ a Casino.Trivia is my game !!
    Never been married—but live with the most beautiful girl in the world. Her name is Phote ^ she is a 6 year old German Shepherd, ( that sounds strange )

    I don’t want to brag–but I do know your ratings will soar with me in ” THE CHAIR ” I’m electrifying!! See–funny !!

    Thanks, Johnny V

  14. Richard Hubbard

    I’ve had the privilege to teach middle school for twenty-eight years. I would greatly appreciate the chance to show my students that learning can be fun – just for the sake of personal satisfaction.
    Also, I’d like to purchase our girls’ basketball teams new uniforms and to be selfish, be able to kick-start a college fund for my adopted daughter!

  15. Michelle Turpeau

    I grew up watching game shows with my mother and love trivia. Now in my 40’s, a wife and the mother of three, I would be “America’s Contestant” and inspire women that have been systemically ignored by the media.

  16. Fernando Gonzalez

    I am an absolute competitor and I love to make everything fun! I have a fun personality and I’m most known for the amount of random knowledge that I have about things that no one else would expect to know. I love to just have a good time and really test my skills. I would love an opportunity to get on this game show because I believe I would be a great contestant and give the show a run for its money by making it an enjoyable episode. I’m a hard worker who got engaged just last week and would love to have the fairy tale wedding for my wife. We’ve had a rough year with a murder in the family and my fiance having to change job fields. Getting an opportunity like this, is once in a lifetime and would mean the world to my soon to be family and I.

  17. John D. Stonebraker

    Pick Me, oow, oow, Pick Me!

  21. Jennifer Tetreault

    Why shouldn’t I be on the show? I’m energetic, charismatic, and I spend all my time educating the youth of tomorrow. Teaching middle school has only enhanced my personality. I constantly play MSQ app and qualified for line jumper. In fact, I always knew I knew a bunch of random knowledge, but this show just showed me how MUCH I really know. Please put me on the show!!!

  22. Jilly T.

    I love the show – I play along with the game and it’s awesomely fun! I’m a 54-yr-old retired postal clerk – I need something to keep my mind active after looking at addresses all day long for 18 years! (Nevermind the measly pension…)

  29. Darryl

    I love this show and I like the fact that people are being tested on their knowledge of entertainment. I live in Augusta Georgia and there’s not much excitement here. Being in the show whether I win or lose would help spark some in my boring country life. My fingers are crossed, please pick me!!

  30. joe platzke

    I would like to set in the chair that tries to drain the brain…

  31. Jean DeVries

    I’m about to be unemployed, so I have plenty of time to sit in a chair in Manhattan.
    I’m the person people fight to have on their team during Trivial Pursuit marathons.
    I’m not too embarrassed to admit that I play Trivial Pursuit.
    I have a head full of useless knowledge, but can’t remember what I ate for breakfast.

  32. J. Wagner

    I have always wanted to get on a game show. By the time I find out about these shows it seems that the positions have been filled. I am located in a relatively small community in Nebraska near Omaha. In spite of the fact that this State is best known for the home of the College Word Series and the Nebraska Cornhuskers football team, this area is still considered as “Out there away from everything”. I am competitive and insightful and would welcome the opportunity to participate. I learned how to stay focused by spending 20 years in U.S. Air Force. Surprise me by picking me.

  33. Robyn Teszler

    Hello! I would love to play this game, why? I’m very good at TRIVIA. Cannot wait to see the premiere show…if I can play along with Jepardy I can try this as well. Thank You, Robyn

  34. Courtney Alessi

    Hi! I’m Courtney and all I’ve ever wanted to do is compete on a game show! I’m competitive and energetic and smart… Well I think do any way :).

    I’m a 32 year old mom of one and wife of one ( lol). I work in a boring 9-5 job and we live paycheck to paycheck so extra money would be great. But besides the money the excitement of something to break my every day blahness would be what my life could use!

    Call me 😉

  35. Megan Lindsey

    I would to be on the show to see how much high school and college has really taught me also to meet Ryan of course. This would definitely a fun experience to get the chance. I like challenges for sure.

  36. Keith Burton

    I would love to be on this show. I’m 56 yrs old and an Army veteran. Besides I’d win the money anyway.

  37. Phillyman

    What can I say. I’m you’re average funny guy who likes to play games and gamble. Maybe if I could win, I’d stop gambling…nah, probably not. If you put me on your show and I lose big, well then, I’ll have someone laughing with me! Come on, where do I sign up???

  38. Debra jones

    My brain is filled with so much worthless bulls^*++, I know I can give this new game a real run for the money!

  40. steve hedger

We are high school sweethearts and had our first child while still in high school it has not always been easy and we have definitely had our share of ups and downs. My husband works so hard to provide us a good life and he always makes things work out, I am so proud of him and all we have accomplished together that’s why I am asking you to concider him for this amazing opportunity he is so good at quizs and this would be a great experience to add to our life.

  45. Nicky Elizabeth

    Because I’m an educated New England hot blonde that can name the 7 diatomic elements, recite the entire group of English “state of being” verbs and politely out smart you in any heated debate with a twinkle in my eye, all whilst sipping on my martini.. 😉

  46. Nadine Dyer

    I would love to be on the show to win some money to start my own non-for profit I plan to name Aunt Morr Cares named after my late grandmother who always feed and clothes the poor and homes less. I was told time and time again that I resemble the First Lady Mrs Obama I would be interesting to see if I have a her brains to win.

  47. Sharyn D

    The Million Second Quiz with Ryan Seacrest ! Wow what a great opportunity for NBC to bring quality entertainment and give the community an opportunity to have fun, learn a lot, and win the grand prize. I would be enthralled to participate in an audition and be part of the show.

    I welcome the opportunity and I thank you for your time and consideration. The opportunity be part of this show would be the highlight of my life and I would be honored to partake in this quiz show. I would really like to assist wherever possible if that is an option as well.

    Thank you !!!- SD

  48. Barbara Kirby

  49. Shamique

    I’m a 26 year old female who is recovering from a broken jaw. I was sucker punched by a guy last week and had to have Oral and Maxillary Surgery. I now have a permanent titanium plate in my jaw, as well as my mouth being wired shut for 6weeks. It’s the most painful and hardest thing I ever been through and honestly I haven’t felt like the same happy go lucky person that I use to be. Can only consume liquids, can no longer smile and I can hardly speak clearly. My life has been hugely impacted by what some violent man decided to do to me. I do not want to feel victimized and I believe an opportunity to take a quiz which isn’t based on me speaking or even looking my best, would be quite essential in rebuilding my shattered confidence . I am quite shy so the last thing I would ever want is to be televised especially in this current condition. Which is why I think it is even more important to take this opportunity to get out of my comfort zone. Honestly I put my mother through so much stress that I just want to do as best as I can , so I can give it all to her. I have the best mother in the world and I just to take good care of her for eternity and beyond. Peace and Love. Good Luck to everyone and Have A Blessed Day.

  50. Vasilikii

    I would LOVE to play on this game show.., It’s always been my dream to be on one. I would be so honored to be chosen. I feel that I would be a great contestant because I have a great personality and outlook on life even though I have had some current setbacks, I know and believe that I will overcome them and will come out on top. When I win big, I will donate to a charity for abused animals as they need our help too. And of course I would help children across the country and world and Adopt a child to help them too. *I would spread the LOVE! Thank you for picking me:)

  51. Scott Reid

    I’m a 40 year old public defender from philly, now living in baltimore with my wife and daughter. I have the classic liberal arts education and a mind full of facts, songs, images from a lifetime spent embracing education and cultural indulgences. I also have a background in theater and some experience in televised trivia contests. I live everyday on edge and in competition with police, judges and lawyers. What’s a few million more opponents? Bring it on!

  69. jonothon randolph

    everyone i know has said that i know more useless information than anyone they know, i think i know very useful information I am very competitive and the idea of being quizzed in a deprivation type scenario sounds like a lot of fun.I am about to be a new father and winning some money so i can spend more time with my new son doesn’t sound too bad either! I think being from Alaska and moving to New York has given me life experience that would make me an interesting character on a show like this.

  70. Rob Proske

    I am the Cliff Claven of modern society. I have qualified for Mensa through testing, but did not join due to the fact that I will not pay money to be a member of society who thinks they stand out above the rest. I have my qualification papers ready if needed. I’m also a very large person (6’2″, 250 lbs.) who will draw in viewers. If you are looking for someone meek, I’m not your contestant. If you are are looking for someone who knows a lot of stupid and menial facts and who can stand out, email me.

  71. Mark Jenkins
