    Well I won't state what I originally thought...

    but after looking at it, probably as "Chocolate" (almost) kinda with a french accent. Shh-auk-a-lot.

    If I were an announcer, I would probably have read it as a silent h - Jack-a-lot

    First I thought it would be Jak-a-lot. But then I thought the "J" could be silent and then it would be "hack-a-lot"! If that's what it is it would be very funny.

    That's what I thought too. Great minds think alike, no?

    Shock-OH-Lot. Like Chocolat (as the people above suggested).

    I'll agree with LSM. You probably do not need to know what I originally thought either.

    I think it's pronounced Chocolate.

    Jack-a-lot, but with the j in jack pronounced sort of like the j in jungle, or jacque. A little longer. I'm actually almost 100% sure that's how you pronounce it!

    Jacque-a-lot would be my initial response.

    Years of reading community college rosters on the first day of class have taught me to go with the most literal phonetic reading I can manage b/c at least the student usually recognizes it (even if wrong). Will admit that I have resorted to reading a student ID in desperation when no one responded to my bad attempt at pronouncing a name. That's not possible at a show, but you can often ask the person's trainer if they're at the in-gate.
