Could Aaron Rodgers be the Next Full-Time Host of ‘Jeopardy!’?
There have been many different guest hosts of 'Jeopardy!' since Alex Trebek passed away in November. One of the guest hosts has been Aaron Rodgers and this week is the start of his 2-week stint hosting the show. But did you know that he's hoping to be the next full-time host of 'Jeopardy!'?
His fiance Shailene Woodley did an Instagram Live video a few days ago. In that video Aaron Rodgers talked about how he hopes to play football full-time for the Green Bay Packers but also host 'Jeopardy!' full-time. Now how in the world would that work? They both seem like massive time commitments.
Aaron explains in the video how he'd be able to do both. He says, "'Jeopardy!' films 5 shows a day, 46 days a year. That's 230 episodes and I work for 6 months out of the year. So the other 6 months I would have time to probably film 46 days I think." Obviously, that last part is said sarcastically, of course over the course of 6 months he has 46 free days he can find.
Aaron shared the Instagram Live on his own Instagram, which you can watch below. You can see him talk about wanting to host 'Jeopardy!' at the 5:15 mark.
Aaron also spoke with Pat McAfee on his show, 'The Pat McAfee Show', according to Yahoo Finance. On the show, Aaron mentioned that if shaving is ever something they'd require him to do to get the full-time hosting gig, he'd do it. Like, 'shave to the skin' as he says. Aaron said, "'I don't do that a lot'" but that he'd do it if needed.
How do you think Aaron Rodgers has been doing guest hosting 'Jeopardy!'? Do you think he could be the full-time host?
