The Selection Process:

Exocaster, Hugh Osborn, used ADS to search for the most used exoplanets in the literature from the past year. The top 24 planets were selected, where no two planets could be from the same planetary system.

The final 8 planets were selected as wildcard entries by the Exocast team to balance out the pool and include some crowd favorites or new/controversial worlds.
