Notes
Even though Guy Ritchie knew that correct answer for the first Not My Job question was "C", but opted to answer with "B" as he liked it better. At the end of the Not My Job segment, Bill Kurtis said that Guy "got them all right". Although that is correct due to guy knowing all the correct questions, but did not opt to choose the right one for the first one.

Notes
After Hannah Kearney gave her first guess to the second Not My Job question, the audience started shouting out answers. Hannah asked if she could poll the audience, in which they shouted "C". Hannah changed her answer to "C", which was the correct answer. After Peter listed the three possible answers for the third question, the audience started shouting out "C" again, which Hannah chose and it was the correct answer as well. During the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank segment, Alonzo Bodden was trying to come up with the answer "Kim Jong Un" and, according to Peter, was close enough with "Kim Jong Il". Alonzo also tried to remember Jared Kushner's last name and knew it was a "Jared". Peter said that was enough and accepted the partial answer.

The correct answer for all three Not My Job questions were "C".

Looking at the data, Bill is correct and the only other times in which someone scored 19 points, three times in fact, when Bill as scorekeeper was Roxanne Roberts.
