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 
currently in the process of creating an FAQ just for that 
purpose.

7) Krusty Krab

Audition List: Flippin' Out, Order Up, The Bouncers

Hardest Audition: Order Up

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!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

8) Goo Lagoon

Role: Lookout
Role Requirement: 
  Bronze Story Mode - 12 000 Popularity Points
  Silver Story Mode - 12 500 Popularity Points

Goo
Audition Fun Factor: 3/5
Hardest Audition: Weight & Sea

Larry has devised 3 challenges to test whether or 
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
  Silver Story Mode - 12 500 Popularity Points
  Gold Story Mode - 13 500 Popularity Points
Host: Mrs. Puff
Difficulty: 
  Bronze Story Mode - *
  Silver Story Mode - **
  Gold Story Mode - ***
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.

Role Requirement: N/A
Host: N/A
Difficulty: 
  Bronze Story Mode - *
