Alex’s pronunciation of Roland told me it was a French dude but nothing came to me. Put down Napoleon just to not leave it blank.
Alex's pronunciation also took me to France. Fortunately about an hour earlier I watched something on Charlemagne so he was on my mind.

Re: Boardie Poll About Taking The Test

I took the test 3 times and had 3 auditions. Never got the call, but Maggie was excited to see me back the last time so at least I'm not bombing (I think). Trying again this year, because why not. I'm sure I passed this one too, so we'll see what happens.

Wheelhouse category.. and I lived in Belize. Instaget, and I was surprised that the contestants were so weak in geography.

Instaget FJ!, but no way I would have tried to spell his first name under that kind of pressure.

40. I enjoyed that one. Unfortunately none of the cities were convenient so I may not be able to go if I get an audition.

Wasn't my best showing, but I'm sleep deprived and on pain meds. Irritated at myself for getting that before and after a second too late, but I did get there. No biggie, there will be more tests.

Instaget. 2000+top game show=WWTBAM. Survivor started that year, but it is paired with the emerging reality shows of that era (Amazing Race, Bachelor, etc), not the game shows (Weakest Link, Deal or Deal, etc). but it didnt say "game show" in the clue You're right, not sure how I jumped to that.

As a kid of the 80s FJ! was an instaget. I never found it scary in the monster movie sense (as in, ET himself wasn't scary), but the parts where government step in were very upsetting to me when I was young.

Guessed Mars, because I know it has several named features. I thought Pluto was booted out of the solar system about 10 years ago.
Status was demoted (and maybe reinstated?). Location hasn't changed.

I have a chess piece tattooed on my arm (not the malka or the reinha) so I wouldn't have forgiven myself for missing this one.

Rainha (right or wrong) led me to royalty because it seemed to be the similar to the Spanish word Rey (and I guessed Rainha was Portuguese). From there the feminine ending led me to queen. 2/3
Spanish for queen is reina. So good logic.

90s kids know that the real What Would You Do? was hosted by Marc Summers. John Quinones is an imposter!

I forgot about that show! My inner 90s teen (apparently I had just turned 13 when it came out) thanks you.

When i see the word "Dahomey" i sing "Namibia", then finish the Animaniacs Nations of the World song.
Did you get a chance to see Animaniacs Live in Arlington a few months back? It was a ton of fun.
That was a thing? No way! I would have!

Rats! I’m down to 33% on the FJ! clues as I went for the one alphabetically first. Unlike yesterday I expect some company on my miss. Nice job by the gentlemen to make the clue go 66%.
You do. I didn't have a way to tease it out so Atlantis=ocean location made more sense than anything else.

When I saw the word "Dahomey", I immediately began trying to remember whether it was Benin or Togo. As it turns out, matters were much simpler.

came home just in time for the final clue. No one remembered Ross Perot is from Texas? :o
That was really unexpected. The elder Ross Perot was born and raised in Texarkana, then moved to Dallas and raised his family here. The family's name is on our outstanding science and nature museum.
