Booger. I had a bag of nothing on three questions, and this was the one I figured I was the most likely to stumble on a guess.
I did too, except I guessed "Don Ho" for Hawaiian singer for one of my three and it turned out to be good... for a sheep.

Cock Robin/Sparrow was a NHOI for me in Fairy Tales.

I couldn't manage to come up with a coherent guess for any of the three misses; I was a deer in the headlights. I was coming up with Niger for the African Country then realized it wasn't even a coastal country.

Re: Wednesday, February 19, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The Captain Morgan clue was a fun one. I did answer it but with a nagging "am I missing another brand?" in the back of my mind, since I'm not into hard liquor at all. I had no idea Henry VIII was the one behind "hands". Since for some reason I have 1547 memorized as the year of his death, providing ...

but was worried about the beginning of the event and if it even included South America.
This also crossed my mind, but I still stuck with Brazil. I figured France was most likely if this were actually the case.

Stayed clam on Russia in the Disasters category despite being fairly confident it was right, which kept me from running it.
Same.

So what tipped everyone off to Brazil anyway?
Brazil is sort of a Pavlov for a big soccer country (associated with Pele, for instance).

Re: Wednesday, February 19, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

MacKenzie's decision not to push all in on DD3 was curious. Clearly she'd be around $20,000 behind with no DD's remaining in the event of a loss either way, yet she still didn't bet enough to take control of the lead.

Re: The Jeopardy! Anytime Test

As I said on here last summer, I couldn't make it to my audition because found myself jobless between test taking time and audition time and couldn't justify taking a five hour trip. I'm still probably irrationally upset over it. It's probably just as well because flying to LA would have been a hass...

The DD Mackenzie missed was the only one I had any problems with in that category. I think the Job/Uz one was the only one that really required any religious knowledge per se, and given how little trouble she had with the first couple questions in that category, I don't fault her wager.

We see an exception to the heuristic that "European" in FJ category names means "not British". Or is that heuristic meant to be specific to writers/artists?

Re: Jeopardy! Episodes That Got Leaked

Where was Austin Rogers' win leaked?

I suspected he would lose when he did given that he seemed to be running out of gas and that a contestant from his final game had been spending a lot of time on Reddit the week before, but I didn't see where it was actually leaked.

The closest guess I would have had would have been Hoyle's Book of Games, which of course doesn't even refer to a sport.
