Aaron Rodgers might have just landed his retirement gig once his Hall of Fame career is done in the National Football League. While that day job seems unlikely to end any time soon, after he won his third MVP after the 2020 season, Rodgers is a complete natural in a celebrity guest host role on the legendary game show Jeopardy!

It makes sense that Rodgers looks so calm and collected even in a job he's never held before. Reportedly, Rodgers prepared for this role just like he does as quarterback for the Green Bay Packers. He took extensive notes watching hours of film to see how the late great Alex Trebek would handle every scenario as host. The hard work has paid off and rave reviews are already coming in after his debut episode. Rodgers filmed a two-week block of episodes in two days back in February.
Rodgers said he's been watching the show since he was seven and he got the opportunity to appear as a contestant on a celebrity edition of the show which he won in 2015. While there is no replacing the iconic Trebek, who passed of cancer in November of last year, there have been several guests hosts starting at the beginning of the year with Ken Jennings. He is the highest earning American game show contestant of all time with more than $5 million. Jennings won $4.5 million of that on Jeopardy. Rodgers is already a more popular than Dr. Oz who he is replacing.
If Rodger's debut episode was any indication, these next two weeks of Jeopardy! are going to be a lot of fun. The episode ended with two-day champ Scott Shewfelt not knowing the correct answer to the Final Jeopardy question. So instead Shewfelt wrote down "Who wanted to kick that field goal?". For those who need a refresher, we need to go back to the NFC Championship game when the Packers hosted the eventual champ Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Green Bay was in the midst of making a triumphant comeback and they had a fourth-and-goal decision to make with just minutes left in the game. Packers head coach Matt LaFleur decided to kick a field goal to bring the score to 31-26. Problem was, Tom Brady didn't let go of the ball after and the rest is history. Rodgers responded perfectly though and no matter when Rodgers football career ends, it's likely safe to say he'll be on our television screens for quite some time to come.
