This Week’s Contestants (Season 37, Week 3)

2-day champion Sameer Gandhi from Pasadena returns as champion this week on Jeopardy!; Preston Wilson, originally from New Orleans, becomes the first player since Pranjal Vachaspati and Zlatan Hodzic in July 2016 to be permitted to use “originally from” in their introduction. I’m honestly surprised that the show didn’t take this step already.

Here you’ll find Matt Carberry’s analysis, updated weekly, of the media markets that this season’s Jeopardy! contestants represent!

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.)
