Aaron Rodgers hilariously recalled a controversial Green Bay Packers moment during his guest host debut of “Jeopardy!”
In the episode that aired Monday, Packers quarterback Rodgers asked contestants to identify the daytime television personality who, when accepting a career Emmy, had said “take … 10 seconds to think about the people who have helped you become who you are. “
The answer is Mr. Rogers.
But one contestant, Scott, cheekily wrote: “Who wanted to kick that field goal?” – referring to that called during the Packers’ NFC Championship clash against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Rodgers chuckled at the gag.
“That’s a great question, it should be correct,” he replied. “But unfortunately for this game today, that is wrong.”
Rodgers then reflected on the joke and experience of filming the game show during an Instagram Live with his fiancee, actress Shailene Woodley.
“A little information, as a host on my podium I can see what they are writing. So, I saw him start writing something about kicking the field goal and then I had to get to my place and I didn’t see the rest of his writing. [but] I knew there was going to be some kind of humor there, ”he said.
“I’m still not sure why we kicked that field goal,” Rodgers added.
The quarterback also revealed that he had no plans to quit soccer, but would not rule out hosting the game show again.
“I just won the MVP. I still have a lot left in the tank. I’m still going to play and would love to introduce ‘Jeopardy!’ at the same time, ”he said. “‘Danger!’ He shoots five shows a day, 46 days a year. That’s 230 episodes. And I work six months a year, so the other six months I’d have time to probably shoot 46 days, I think.
