Aaron Rodgers Says He Wants The Job As Full-Time 'Jeopardy!' Host


Aaron Rodgers. You may have heard of him. He's the quarterback of the Green Bay Packers, a Super Bowl champion and MVP, and 3 time NFL MVP. Well, yesterday kicked off his 2 week (10 episode) stint of hosting JEOPARDY! If you missed his first episode, you can see a funny clip below of Rodgers dodging a question about the last Packer game of the season.

Well, in a new interview with The Ringer, Aaron was asked if he would ever give up his career as an NFL player to host "JEOPARDY!"

Here was his response:

I don’t think I’d need to give up football to do it. They film 46 days a year. I worked 187 this year in Green Bay. That gives me, eh—[pauses]—178 days to do Jeopardy! So I feel like I could fit 46 into that 178 and make it work. It would be a dream job for sure, and I’m not shy at all about saying I want the job. That’s how I went into it. I want an opportunity to be in the mix.

After his first episode aired, he posted a video to Instagram with his fiance, Shailene Woodley, recapping how day 1 went. Check it out below.
