Season 35 Jeopardy! contestants - where they're from

Related links:

The main table includes all players who made their first appearance on Jeopardy! in 2018-19. Thus, they don't take into account:

Right now, we expect there to be 424 players debuting on the show this season; 379 in regular play, 15 in each of the two Teen Tournaments, and another 15 in the Teachers Tournament.

What's here:

Both challengers being from the same media market has happened four times this season: November 1 (Greenville, SC-Spartanburg, SC-Asheville, NC-Anderson, SC), November 27 (Seattle), March 28 (Detroit), and April 1 (Washington, DC).

(Credits: Zap2it & TitanTV for TV schedules for each market; John Coryat (yes, that's actually the last name) for ZIP code maps; ThinkTV for a listing of Canadian market sizes, enabling me to rank them properly with the U.S. markets; and Ads for Carts for the lookup tools I use for both American and Canadian DMAs.)

Updated through the conclusion of Week 32 of Season 35 (2019-04-19), including the separate table for the All-Star Games.
