Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has done it all in the NFL: Super Bowl winner, MVP and, in large part, becoming one of the greatest quarterbacks the NFL has ever seen. Now he has the chance to host one of his favorite game shows.
On Tuesday, Rodgers revealed he had the opportunity to host an episode of “Jeopardy!” after the Packers’ season ends.
“Maybe I jumped the gun a bit, so I apologize to ‘Jeopardy!’ if they wanted to announce it, “Rodgers said, via ESPN.” I was so excited about the series earlier. It happened the last two days, we figured it out. It’s very exciting.
“It’s for the offseason. We’ll be even more excited when that opportunity gets a little closer, but, man, the show has been so special to me over the years.”
Rodgers appeared as a contestant on the show in a Celebrity Edition in 2015, winning the episode and $ 50,000, donating the winnings to charity.
Rodgers said that watching “Jeopardy!” and host Alex Trebek were fixtures of his time while living in Green Bay. Trebek died in November after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. The show remains one of Rodgers’ favorites
Rodgers and the Packers will have the opportunity to answer the question, “Who qualifies for the 2020 NFC Championship game?” this weekend when they face the Rams.
Should Rodgers perform well as a host – what isn’t he doing well, after all? – maybe he can put his hat on in the ring as the next longtime game show host.
