Question: Do Jeopardy Contestants Get a Study Guide? 

No. Jeopardy only provides contestants with the Prep Center and practice tests on their website. There is no evidence of contestants receiving materials from anyone affiliated with the show. 

This is a question that is often asked because the contestants are so darn prepared! What viewers at home don't understand is that people trying to get on Jeopardy are studying their own material for hours on end, just to have a shot at getting on the show.

Show-runners often point to watching the show as the best form of studying. Past contestants and champions also state that watching the show religiously is one of the best ways to get accustomed to the clue format, topics, and pace of the game. 

Not only do you not receive a study guide, you're also not gifted any travel accommodations

According to past contestants, if you're invited to the show after the audition period, you're also responsible for all travel expenses including air far, hotel, as well as meals.
