My stomach is in knots.

So, Jack's interview is over. It went well, but we may not know anything for a couple more days.

In the end, there were 25 kids at the auditions this morning. Ten of the kids were boys. Most of those kids were like Jack, sent by local FOX affiliates from various parts of the country. The remaining kids were sent by casting agents.

Though I'm not sure this was explicitly stated, Bruce had a strong impression that the five kids for next season's "Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?" were going to be pulled from this particular group.

The first thing the producers did after everyone had arrived, was to do short video snippets of each kid to be sent to respective local FOX affiliates for this own marketing/promotion. This was done in the "holding room" (*Moo*).

Then, the kids were broken into groups of six, and each group was taken to a separate room with their parents to a separate room for more personalized interviews.

Jack was in the first group which consisted of three girls and three boys. Bruce was impressed with one of the boys, named Zach, in Jack's group. The kids were seated together in front of a backdrop that was probably of the show's logo. The kids were asked a little bit about themselves. The kids took turns telling jokes; Zach sang a song (I'm told he has a great voice).

Bruce said Jack did great, did exactly what we have been coaching him to do: be himself and have fun.

So, now they're done. We just wait for a fateful phone call while life goes on. Bruce and Jack are headed to the LA zoo for the rest of the afternoon.

Casting agents? Good grief! I think it is awesome that Jack made it there all on his own!
