On the popular American quiz show "Jeopardy," the answer might read: These people can compete once again.

The question: Who are Canadian contestants?

"Jeopardy" host Alex Trebek, who was born in Ontario, says in a news release that he's pleased Canadians will be allowed to apply for the show once again.

Privacy laws had prohibited Canucks from the online test site, but Trebek says he looks forward to seeing more of his fellow citizens on the show soon.

The issue came to light when Benn Millman of Port Moody, B.C., was on "Jeopardy" last season.

He noted at the time that he might be one of the final Canadian to participate unless the show changed its rules.

Registration for online contestant testing opened Monday for the show's 33rd season in syndication.
