Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers will begin his guest host role on “Jeopardy!” beginning April 5.
Rodgers will host 10 episodes of the show, which will air over the span of two weeks, Yardbarker reports.
Episodes hosted by Ken Jennings and show producer Mike Richards have aired so far, and future episodes will be hosted by Katie Couric, Dr. Mehmet Oz, CNN anchor Anderson Cooper, actress Mayim Bialik, “Today” host Savannah Guthrie, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, and “60 Minutes” correspondent Bill Whitaker.
Some of these hosts will be considered for the permanent slot, but “Jeopardy!” will take its time, USA Today reports. It is not likely Rodgers will fill the permanent hosting role with his NFL career.
Rodgers appeared on “Celebrity Jeopardy!” in 2015, winning the game and securing $50,000 for charity.
The Green Bay Packers quarterback compared meeting former host Alex Trebek — who died in 2020 — to meeting other iconic TV personalities from his youth, including Pat Summerall and John Madden, the article details.
“To be able to be a guest host is really, really special for me and I can’t wait for the opportunity,” Rodgers said after a practice in January.
