I've added all the season 10 guests who have existing profiles. A couple of guests will need profiles created. The episode numbers will need to be added when they air. Emma

This isn't updated in real time which means we haven't updated all of the recently connected people's status yet. The spreadsheet is currently the most accurate info. Emma
