Rodgers is no stranger to the "Jeopardy!" stage. On a 2015 episode of "Celebrity Jeopardy!," he raised $50,000 for charity by defeating astronaut and current United States senator Mark Kelly and "Shark Tank" panelist and businessman Kevin O'Leary. "Jeopardy!" has selected a number of interim hosts following the death of its iconic host Alex Trebek in November 2020. Former "Jeopardy!" contestant Ken Jennings, who is the highest-earning game show contestant of all time, was the first interim host, and he tweeted in support of Rodgers before Monday's show.
I was at the same guest host scouting combine as this guy and it was impressive. He had the arm mechanics, the three-cone drill time, the "Oooooh, sorry." https://t.co/HYTuN0A02x— Ken Jennings (@KenJennings) April 5, 2021
Rodgers also demonstrated that he has a pretty decent Larry David impression.
Of course, as always, the written answers on Final Jeopardy! provided the best moment. Two-time champion Scott Shewfelt was too far behind the leader to make it up with a correct answer, so he decided to troll Rodgers a little bit by bringing up Packers coach Matt LeFleur's decision to kick a field goal while down by eight points in this past season's NFC Championship Game.
Brutal. But Rodgers handled it with aplomb -- and since he says he'd love to be a full-time host, who knows what could happen in the future?
