All-Time Top Players to Lead Weekend for Charity

James Holzhauer and Brad Rutter lead the list of game show greats offering advice, inside tips, and head-to-head competition at the Game Show Boot Camp, coming to Las Vegas on August 19-21, 2022.


Aspiring game show contestants can learn from the best ― classic players from shows like Jeopardy!, The Chase, and Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? ― and get tips from casting directors and other game show veterans at the event. A highlight will be Saturday night’s Titan Throwdown, an in-person game show where the top boot camp participants will battle the champions for prizes and bragging rights. The camp is open to anyone age 18 and over who hopes to join the ranks of TV game show winners.


It’s all for a good cause: the Game Show Boot Camp is a fundraiser for Project 150 (, which offers help and resources to school students experiencing homelessness in the Las Vegas area. 


“The toughest part of my game show journey was the 13 years it took me to pass an audition,” says James Holzhauer. “With the knowledge you'll gain at Game Show Boot Camp, you won't be left waiting on the sidelines.”


Boot camp events will include seminars on How To Be A Great Contestant (by Maggie Speak, Hollywood game show contestant coordinator and producer for over 40 years), Secrets of the Buzzer (by Jeopardy! Tournament of Champions winner Fritz Holznagel), and practice game play. Breakout panel discussions will look at the nuances of today’s most popular game shows. Other special treats will be a live demo of Kno’dgeball, an uproarious combination of trivia and dodgeball, and a behind-the-scenes look at the new National Game Show Archives at the Strong National Museum for Play in Rochester, NY. 


In Saturday night’s TITAN THROWDOWN, lucky boot camp participants will match wits with Holzhauer, Rutter, and surprise special guests ― players with combined game show earnings of over TEN MILLION DOLLAR$. The evening will be open to the public, and will also include a silent auction and autograph session with the stars, all benefiting Project 150. 


The GAME SHOW BOOT CAMP will be held just off the Las Vegas Strip at the Hampton Inn Tropicana, 4975 Dean Martin Drive.  Tickets are $175 and include tickets to the Titan Throwdown available ***HERE*** LINK TBD (Eventbrite?)
