Aaron Rodgers, Next Jeopardy! Host?

Mike Richards has stepped down as the host of Jeopardy! after some inappropriate comments resurfaced. Following the tragic passing of Alex Trebek, the search for a replacement begins anew. After being a guest host for two weeks back in April, could Aaron Rodgers take the job?

Aaron Rodgers Might Actually Want the Jeopardy! Job

Here’s what Rodgers had to say of his two week hosting gig:

That was so much fun. That was just so much fun. I spent a lot of time studying and getting ready for it. I definitely wanted it, was interested in finding a way to make it work with my schedule and their schedule and filming. But I had such a blast. I have zero regrets with how it all went. It was such a special environment. It was surreal to be on that stage.

When you’re just a super Jeopardy! fan like I am, it’s just so special to be on that stage, to be in that environment when you know you’re walking in the footsteps of legends. When we walk out the tunnel in Lambeau, we have these bricks that were from the old stadium and there’s a little plaque there that talks about the type of legends that walked over these bricks. Every now and then, you’ve got to look over at it and pinch yourself and just realize how special it is what you’re doing right now and how many greats have been in that position right here. And there was a lot of those moments being on stage thinking about Alex (Trebek), and how much he meant to me and so many people worldwide who spent their evenings with him for so many years.

Evidently, Rodgers is more excited about Jeopardy! than he is about being the quarterback for the Green Bay Packers. His superfan status might land him the job for the time when he isn’t playing football.
