This Week’s Contestants (Season 37, Week 1)

Today is the day we’ve been waiting for since June: the resumption of new Jeopardy! episodes, as Season 37 begins today!

As was broken here on The Jeopardy! Fan on Tuesday, Zach Newkirk will not return to defend his title tonight; he will defend at some point in the future.

As you’ll definitely notice from this list of contestants, all contestants are from very close to Los Angeles.

Here you’ll find Matt Carberry’s analysis, updated weekly, of the media markets that this season’s Jeopardy! contestants represent! (While it seems trivial now, as all 11 contestants this week are from the Los Angeles TV market, this information should become more useful as the season progresses.)

Has your local pub quiz gone dark over COVID-19? Many companies are now live-streaming their games online! Check out our calendar of live-streamed trivia events and get your fix!

Since Alex Trebek’s diagnosis of stage 4 pancreatic cancer, many community members have been raising money. The Jeopardy! Fan Online Store is as well! All proceeds from any “Keep The Faith And We’ll Win” shirt sold will be donated to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. To date, nearly $500 has been raised.)
