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, it's not entirely certain how many new players will debut on the show this season; this owes primarily to the fact that we don't know what (if any) tournament will air in early February, prior to the All-Star Games.

What's here:

Both challengers being from the same media market has happened twice this season: November 1 (Greenville, SC-Spartanburg, SC-Asheville, NC-Anderson, SC) and November 27 (Seattle).

(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 this really cool Nielsen DMA lookup tool I recently discovered.)

Updated through Week 14 of Season 35 (2018-12-14).
