Could Aaron Rodgers become the full-time host of Jeopardy?
When it was announced that Aaron Rodgers would be guest-hosting “Jeopardy!”, most assumed it was for a combination of fun and charity. However, the Green Bay Packers quarterback made clear he wanted the permanent job — and apparently he has a shot at it.
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Rodgers “really impressed” the show’s producers during his two-week stint as guest host. The quarterback was impressive enough that he will reportedly receive consideration for the permanent job once that decision is made.
One more note on #Packers QB Aaron Rodgers: He really impressed the brass during his stint on Jeopardy. The belief is, when they finish auditions, he’ll be among those with a chance to do the job full-time. If this isn’t sorted out, a job hosting is also a possibility.

If there’s any doubt about whether Rodgers would want the job, you only need to know how hard the quarterback prepared for the gig. Some might question how he could host a game show while simultaneously playing quarterback in the NFL, but he appears to have a plan for that, too.
Admittedly, this isn’t exactly the biggest Rodgers rumor going around at the moment.
