    Could you please explain the registration process. As a newbie, do you have to submit a sample of your punniest, or do you just register your name and intent to show up? Thanks.

      It’s always tough for a rank newbie to know what to expect. We recommend you watch some of the many clips archived on YouTube so you can get an idea of what’s been happening. To answer your specific question, YES! Just register your name and intent to show up. You will then have more than a month to become the contestant/competitor you were born to be.
