When Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was announced as a guest host for the legendary game show “Jeopardy!,” it threw many for a loop.
Now that Rodgers’ stint as a guest host is done, the iconic television show will have to choose a full-time replacement for recently passed legendary host Alex Trebek.
That could very well end up being the reigning NFL MVP.
One more note on #Packers QB Aaron Rodgers: He really impressed the brass during his stint on Jeopardy. The belief is, when they finish auditions, he’ll be among those with a chance to do the job full-time. If this isn’t sorted out, a job hosting is also a possibility.

It must be noted that Aaron Rodgers has interest in being a full-time host, as he’s indicated in the recent past. It also would not directly conflict with his football career.
As for Rodgers’ stint as a guest host, “Jeopardy!” saw its ratings increase by 14% when he was manning the microphone. This could play a role in the decision-making process of “Jeopardy!” brass.
On the field, Rodgers apparently is not happy with the direction of the Green Bay Packers and wants to be traded. A childhood fan of the San Francisco 49ers and Northern California native, they just recently put in a call about a potential Rodgers trade.
Interestingly enough, “Jeopardy!” is filmed in California. Meanwhile, Rodgers’ new fiancée Shailene Woodley is also a California native.
