Not only has Aaron Rodgers led his Green Bay Packers to the #1 seed in the NFC, but he has also set himself up to be named the #1 player in the entire NFL as you can bet your bottom dollar that precious MVP award is his. Off the field though, he has racked up another high honor: Jeopardy guest host!
Yes, that is correct. No daily double wager needed here. Aaron Rodgers broke the news on the Pat McAfee Show today. Many guest hosts are lined up to host Jeopardy after long-time host Alex Trebek tragically passed away back in November. He now joins that list.
For fans of Rodgers and/or Jeopardy, they know Mr. R-E-L-A-X is no stranger to the show. Back in 2015, he won the celebrity edition and brought home $50,000 for the MACC Fund charity. Being from Wisconsin, I know all too well about that great organization and the countless plugs it gets in the state and all the generous local athletes who spend their time promoting it. Very cool. MACC Fund once again, if you wish to check it out.
As cool as this gig will be for him (already been taped), all focus for him is on this Saturday afternoon. His Packers host the visiting Rams in the second round of the 2020-2021 NFL Playoffs, and I think it will be tough. Facing the Chicago Bears would have been an easy victory. The Rams? Ouch, time will tell if the pack can hold up to their number one spot and head to the NFC Championship Game the following Sunday.
Question: Who will guest host Jeopardy doing a discount double check?
Answer: Aaron Rodgers!
