Aaron Rodgers To Start ‘Jeopardy!’ Hosting Stint On April 5

What better way to spend your offseason than to start preparing for retirement? That seems to be the philosophy of Green Bay Packers star quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who will be getting some valuable TV face time over the next few weeks.

According to ESPN, Rodgers will serve as the guest host of Jeopardy! for two straight weeks, starting Monday.

Rodgers, of course, is a longtime fan of the show. He even once beat astronaut Mark Kelly and Kevin O’Leary of Shark Tank on an episode of Celebrity Jeopardy!, winning $50,000 for the MACC Fund in the process.

The late Alex Trebek hosted Jeopardy! from 1984-2020, and Rodgers said on The Pat McAfee Show that Trebek was one of his idols.

So while Rodgers still wants another Super Bowl ring, he is clearly in pursuit of something that may mean as much or maybe more.

“Along with Rodgers, some of the celebrities slated to take on guest-hosting duties include actress Mayim Bialik, talk show host Dr. Oz and television news anchors Katie Couric and Anderson Cooper,” Bleacher Report noted.

  1. He’s about as likeable as heels up Harris. Katie Couric and Dr. Oz were absolutely terrible. The producer of the show did a great job. Ken Jenning was ok.
