Aaron Rodgers’ stint as ‘Jeopardy!’ host gets a start date

Aaron Rodgers, Packers, Jeopardy!

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is a huge fan of the popular American game show “Jeopardy!” and will start a 10-episode run as a guest host on April 5, according to The Athletic.

The passing of longtime host Alex Trebek back in November 2020 has the show seeking out guest hosts to help replace him. Some of the well-known personalities who will have a stint include Katie Couric, Anderson Cooper, and Dr. Sanjay Gupta. Former contestant Ken Jennings has already been hosting the show in recent weeks.

Aaron Rodgers previously appeared on the show back in 2015, winning $50,000 for charity as part of a celebrity edition. His return as a guest host will follow right after Dr. Oz.

Rodgers’ new fiancée, Shailene Woodley, also made a huge announcement on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” on Monday night, where she confirmed her recent engagement with Rodgers. She also took the chance to poke fun at the quarterback and his affinity for the show:

“I don’t know him as a football guy,” Woodley said. “I know him as, like, the nerd who wants to host ‘Jeopardy!’ That’s the dude I know.”

Aaron Rodgers’ appearance on the show may already give a hint to his potential retirement plans, but fans will have to wait a little longer for that. He showed in 2020 that he still has a lot left in the tank heading to his 17th season in the NFL, and the Packers superstar is still trying to get back to the Super Bowl.
