Aaron Rodgers to Guest Host Jeopardy
Aaron Rodgers is making a return to Jeopardy!, this time as the host, rather than a contestant.
The quarterback revealed Tuesday that he has been asked to host an episode of his favorite show, which he hasn't been on since his appearance on the celebrity edition episode in 2015.
Rodgers made the announcement during his appearance on The Pat McAfee show, but later apologized to the show when reps declined comment on whether he'd be hosting.
"I may have jumped the gun a little bit, so I apologize to 'Jeopardy!' if they wanted to announce it," Rodgers said. "I just got so excited on the show earlier. It just went down the last couple of days, us figuring it out. It is very exciting. It's for the offseason. We'll be even more excited when that opportunity gets a little closer, but, man, the show has been so special to me over the years. It's been a staple at my house here in Green Bay for the last 16 years -- 6 o'clock watching Alex and trying to get as many questions as I can."
"When the opportunity came up in 2015, I mean that was a dream come true -- it really was -- to be on there," the Super Bowl winning NFL Quarterback explained. "To get to meet Alex was just such a special moment, and we're all obviously sad about his passing.
"We all have so much love and affection, I think, for what Alex meant for that half hour, that 22 minutes of our lives on a daily basis for those of us who were big fans of the show," Rodgers said. "So to be able to be a guest host is really, really special for me, and I can't wait for the opportunity."
