“Danger!” Guest host Aaron Rodgers appeared to have been caught off guard Monday after a contestant took the opportunity to pull up a painful memory of the Green Bay Packers quarterback’s past.
In the “Final Jeopardy” round, contestant Scott Shewfelt did not respond to the final clue about daytime television personalities.
Instead, he asked Rodgers about a controversial field goal during last season’s NFC Championship game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, which ultimately ended the Packers season and their ticket to the Super Bowl.
“Who wanted to kick that field goal?” Shewfelt wrote.
Rodgers initially looked stunned before looking down momentarily with a smile plastered on his face.
“That’s a great question,” he said while laughing. “It should be correct, but unfortunately for this game today, that is wrong.”
Rodgers made his debut Monday as the host of the show. He is expected to host for the next two weeks, according to “Jeopardy!” website.
A number of guest hosts, including award-winning journalists and celebrities, were announced after “Jeopardy!” Host Alex Trebek died late last year of cancer.
Expected guest hosts include CNN host Anderson Cooper and NBC “TODAY” co-host Savannah Guthrie.
