    This is an FAQ about Story Mode and how you can be 
    successful in 
    it. For a total guide on each Mini-Game, please wait as I 
    am

    purpose.
    The format I will use for this guide is as follows:

    Bubble Bass has mustered up a series of 2 VS 2 mini-games 
    to test 
    if you have what it takes to work at the Krusty Krab and be 
    a 
    waiter. Obviously, no matter what happens, you will play a 
    tiebreaker game at the end since everyone will receive the 
    same 
    Popularity Points as their partner. However, it is possible
    a 4-Way Tie will occur. If this happens, Three Rounds of 
    Rock, Paper, Scissors will be played!

    not you have what it takes to be a Lookout in the
    movie. The 3 challenges involve Racing, Weightlifting,
    and Fishing. May the best win!

    9) Mrs. Puff's Boating School
    
    Role: Police Officer
    Role Requirement: 
      Bronze Story Mode - 12 000 Popularity Points

    Audition List: Goo-Ladiators, Pedal of Honor, Floor It!
    Audition Fun Factor: 4/5
    Hardest Audition: Floor It!
    
    Mrs. Puff has finally gotten a bunch of students other than 
    SpongeBob who actually want to learn! :) These 3 auditions
    test your driving skills and they will have you battling
    against your opponents to see who the best driver is (and
    it may very well be SpongeBob!).  
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    10) Sand Stadium
    
    Role: Maestro
    Role Requirement: 
      Bronze Story Mode - 12 000 Popularity Points
      Silver Story Mode - 12 500 Popularity Points
      Gold Story Mode - 13 500 Popularity Points
    Host: Squilliam
    Difficulty: 
      Bronze Story Mode - *
      Silver Story Mode - **
      Gold Story Mode - ***
    Audition List: Rock Bottom, Jig on the Brig, Beats Me
    Audition Fun Factor: 5/5
    Hardest Audition: Rock Bottom
    
    Squilliam is still trying to upstage Squidward, rubbing 
    his accomplishments as a musician in Squidward's face. Well
    now, he's trying to find someone who could be better than 
    him (but in his eyes, not as good as him) at being a
    Maestro at the Sand Stadium. The three auditions will have
    you dancing and playing instruments whilst also having
    a bit of fun as well! 
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    11) Chum Bucket
    
    Role: Captive
    Role Requirement: 
      Bronze Story Mode - 12 000 Popularity Points
      Silver Story Mode - 12 500 Popularity Points
      Gold Story Mode - 13 500 Popularity Points
    Host: Karen
    Difficulty: 
      Bronze Story Mode - * 
      Silver Story Mode - **
      Gold Story Mode - ***
    Audition List: Machine Meltdown, Surface Tension, Charge!
    Audition Fun Factor: 1/5
    Hardest Audition: Machine Meltdown
    
    Karen is tired of Plankton trying to "conquer the
    fast food market" and the world so she has devised 
    three challenges staged at the Chum Bucket itself
    to see who would make the most captive-ating performance! 
    :)
    What we truly can glean from these boring challenges is
    that working at the Chum Bucket really is harder than 
    it seems (even when there are no customers) but we 
    were probably right when we said that working there
    would be a drag as you'll find out in these challenges.

    12) Jellyfish Fields
    
    Role: Hunter
    Role Requirement: 
      Bronze Story Mode - 12 000 Popularity Points
      Silver Story Mode - 12 500 Popularity Points
      Gold Story Mode - 13 500 Popularity Points
    Host: Kevin C. Cucumber
    Difficulty: 
      Bronze Story Mode - **
      Silver Story Mode - ***
      Gold Story Mode - ****
    Audition List: Jellyfish Jamboree, Jellyfish Swish, The 
    Tide Piper
    Audition Fun Factor: 2/5
    Hardest Audition: The Tide Piper
    
    Kevin has devised three challenges to see who really
    is good at catching Jellyfish. His challenges aren't that
    interesting, nor are they fun, however, you'll 
    have to live with them all to get the Hunter role.
    Watch out, also, for the King Jellyfish who may
    come up to ruin your chances of getting the role.

    13) Bikini Bottom Jail
    
    Role: Prison Guard
    Role Requirement: 
      Bronze Story Mode - 12 000 Popularity Points
      Silver Story Mode - 12 500 Popularity Points
      Gold Story Mode - 13 500 Popularity Points
    Host: Don the Whale 
    Difficulty: 
      Bronze Story Mode - **
      Silver Story Mode - **
      Gold Story Mode - ***
    Audition List: Seahorse Stampede, Breakin' Out, Rubble 
    Rabble
    Audition Fun Factor: 4/5
    Hardest Audition: Seahorse Stampede
    
    Don has devised 3 challenges that would, apparently, 
    take "10 years" to accomplish as he so puts it, whereas the 
    contestants must do so in 10 minutes. Not the brightest 
    bulb
    in Bikini Bottom but he has devised some pretty interesting
    challenges. Rubble Rabble can be frustrating at times
    with un-co-operative computer partners, however, please
    enjoy the, surprisingly diffcult, Seahorse Stampede, and
    the amusing Breakin' Out auditions.
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    14) Downtown Bikini Bottom
    
    Role: Stunt Double
    Role Requirement: 
      Bronze Story Mode - 12 000 Popularity Points
      Silver Story Mode - 12 500 Popularity Points
      Gold Story Mode - 13 500 Popularity Points
    Host: Cannonball Jenkins
    Difficulty: 
      Bronze Story Mode - ***
      Silver Story Mode - ****
      Gold Story Mode - *****
    Audition List: Blisterin' Barnacles, Rope Burn, Flingin' & 
    Swingin'
    Audition Fun Factor: 4/5
    Hardest Audition: Blisterin' Barnacles
    
    Cannonball Jenkins has devised a difficult challenge
    for you to gain the Stunt Double role. All three
    auditions have you towering above the city, working
    in teams to scrape barnacles off buildings,
    scale buildings, and to light pegs. Not very 
    interesting auditions, nevertheless, there is still
    much fun to be had under all the frustration
    you'll probably experience especially with 
    Blisterin' Barnacles. Hopefully, you have a good
    partner. If not, well, let's just say you'll be stuck
    on this level for quite a while...

    15) Super Villain Role
    
    The coveted, Super Villain Role is a role give to the 
    player who 
    has received the most Popularity Points throughout the 
    course of 
    the game. The Popularity Points players have received on 
    various 
    auditions adds up towards your score for this role giving 
    you a 
    chance of attaining this role in the movie. Only the best 
    of the 
    best will attain this role and reap the rewards of being 
    cast as 
    a villain in the movie.
