It is Extremely Difficult to Become a Contestant on Jeopardy

Every year I take the online test to be try to become a contestant on Jeopardy.  I always have wondered exactly what the odds are of becoming chosen to appear on the show.  This morning I watched Sports Jeopardy when host Dan Patrick remarked that only 160 out of 30,000 applicants were chosen to appear on the show. I imagine the odds are even worse on regular Jeopardy.  I also must presume that very few older people are chosen as contestants.  Years ago there was a seniors tournament for the over 50 crowd, but that was dropped.  Oh well.  I can always dream about it.
