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.
