The devastating death of Alex Trebek left “Jeopardy!” without a host. Of course, the iconic game show host is irreplaceable, but the show must go on.
“Jeopardy!” has several guest hosts lined up to host the show. We saw Ken Jennings take over after Trebek’s final show, but now it appears one star athlete will give hosting a shot.
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers revealed during his weekly appearance on “The Pat McAfee” show that he’ll be guest-hosting an episode of “Jeopardy!”
“I’m really excited about it. We’ve been talking about it for a little bit,” said Rodgers during his media availability on Tuesday afternoon, according to the team website. “I think I may have jumped the gun a little bit so I apologize to ‘Jeopardy’ if they wanted to announce it, 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.”
