  6. Sent the info to Casting.

    My name is Douglas Crawshaw Jr. I’m a 27 year old custodian from Pomona, KS.

    I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting.

    I have no beautiful wife and no beautiful kids (because I’m single, I’m calling no one ugly). My hobbies include reading, running, playing music, playing video games, and playing basketball.

    I think I would make a great contestant on your show because I can get excited over the simplest, and perhaps weirdest ways. For example, when I got a summons for jury duty, I was ecstatic. Even going into the courtroom, I had a smile on my face. I’d probably make a terrible juror, but in my own mind “a shoo-in for The Price Is Right”.

    That, and I’m a janitor. I’m around school kids all the time. I clean the middle school, so I better be smarter than a 5th grader!

    Hope you have a great day and thanks for your consideration. Peace and God Bless!

  7. Im 31, from Hammond ,Indiana. I have a high school diploma with no college. Kids now a days are very smart. I dont know if Im smarter than a 5th grader and theres only one way to find out!

  8. I would love to be a contestant on Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader? I have three daughters, two in elementary school and one in high school. I may be smarter than a fifth grader, I may not. That is for you to find out. I am a college graduate and have been a nurse for 11 years. If I don’t make it as a contestant, I wish others luck.

  9. I love this show!! I’m a 30-year-old Marine-Corps vet. I’ve studied at the Naval Justice School in Newport, RI. I consider myself fairly knowledgable, I’d love a chance to win some cash to help provide for my family. I look forward to hearing from you.

  10. Hi, my name is Samantha :-) hehe. I play the game on my phone all the time! I love love love it. Education has been my thing since I first took my breath of air lol. I’m 19 years young, about to be 20 in May. I’m entering my sophomore year in college. I’m from Miami/Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. I would absolutely love to be on the show, more for the experience and I would love to donate a portion of my possible winnings to the Broward County Animal Shelter and to the Florida Bright Futures Scholarship fund, which I was a recipient of.

  11. Hey idiots. Clearly this post did not say “leave your resume in the comments section below.” It is sad to say, but all those people that thought it would be beneficial to apply for this gig in the comments section are probably exactly the type of nit-wits that this show is looking for.

  12. I will be entertaining no matter what, I can’t even help it. Pretty good at trivia, Ole Miss, Virginia Commonwealth University, and community college before that. Never graduated, don’t regret it. I enjoyed learning more than framed paper on my wall, taking up space I could put a Taylor Swift, Lil Wayne, or Hank Williams Jr. poster on my wall. Twenty-five going on awesome, possibly more. Jeff Foxworthy is great as an entertainer, and seems to an even better person. He brings positivity to a business filled with mess and negativity. Plus I’m jealous of that moustache! Born in VA, lived in SC, NC, MS, currently in the home of the first President. VA… In the capital, Richmond, and loving it still.

  13. My name is Kayli. I am 9 years old, and I am in 4th grade. I play the violin and was recently awarded a position in an elite music program in Connecticut. I also play the piano. I enjoy playing softball, basketball, and soccer, and I am a green belt in Tae Kwon Do. I have a deep love for animals, and became a vegetarian over a year ago. I would love the opportunity to be on Are you Smarter than a Fifth Grader!!

  14. I would love to be apart of Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader, I have watch this show for years and have absolutely adored it. I am the mother of 7 year old twin boys, if I was selected to be apart of this show I would be the coolest Mom ever.

  15. I would be great on the show…Because I better be smarter than a fifth grader… atleast I know Im wittier. Plus I’ll look good on camera. Im a jack of all trades master of none, so I know little about everything….:)

  16. Hi, I am 46 years old and LOve game shows , I am very very competitive and do NOT like to lose, very vocal, bubbly and I think I could really shine on this show, I actually have a fifth grader. I work in retail management.

  20. I have seen this game before, when i think Joan Rivers was on it and she made me laugh so hard. This is a light hearted show with questions that made you wished you payed attention to the weird teacher that sang about cookies all the time . I wouldn’t be happier to be a part in the comback of the show. Thank you for reading

  21. I am super smart. I dropped out of school but my mind is incredible never failed on any test. Creative mind and very visual memory.

  23. I believe that I would be an excellent contestant for this show. I am a 21 year old college student studying elementary education in South Florida. I watched every episode of this show when I was younger and always dreamed of being on the show when I was finally old enough. Unfortunately, they no longer recorded the show once I was old enough. I still record all of the reruns of this show and watch them in my free time. I guess you can say I am obsessed. PICK ME!

  24. I am a senior citizen. Perhaps you would like to add a little age to your show as well as wisdom.

    I was a teacher for 42 years (..Newark,NJ)…one year in Maui , Hawaii.

    Love to be able to take our children and grandchildren on a cruise together.

    Also like to donate 20%of possible winnings to scholarships for children of Newark.

  25. Hi, my name is Blake Watkins, I am a 19 year old college student from Suwanee, Ga. I think I would be a great game show contestant on your show because I am confident, intelligent, well spoken and have a great memory and I think I would do well with the content and premise of this show.
    I also have 3 younger siblings (ages 14, 7, and 5) and have worked as a umpire for rookie and t-ball baseball since age 16 and have volunteered countless hours assistant coaching my 2 brothers baseball and basketball teams from age 15 to present, so I am very comfortable and well-received among kids.
    I actually have some mutual friends in common with Jeff Foxworthy (since we live very close to each other) that attend school and church with their family. They could even be references for my character and personality if needed or I would love the opportunity to try out or interview as well. Thank you for your time and consideration.
