Aaron Rodgers is one of the most interesting players in the NFL. Besides being quarterback of the Green Bay Packers, Rodgers has a host of off-field interests, including the game show "Jeopardy!" The QB is set to begin a two-week stint as interim host after appearing in a celerity episode of the show in 2015.
He took a tenacious approach in his preparation for the role.
The quarterback's prep was akin to heading into his next NFL game. He hit the film room and studied late host Alex Trebek in order to best emulate the great.
"I took pages and pages and pages of notes. I wrote down every affirmative that he said to any type of clue. I wrote down how he would respond if they didn't get it right. I wrote down beat points of the show. I wrote down all the different ways he would take it to break. I wrote down the stuff that he said coming out of break. Literally, I studied for this like no other. I wanted to absolutely just crush it."- Aaron Rodgers
Rodgers' fierce competitive drive certainly shows in his approach to guest hosting. It's amusing to see the QB spending hours in hopes of mirroring someone he looks up to when there are thousands of kids out there who do the same with his football highlights.
Rodgers will host ten episodes of "Jeopardy!" starting on April 5. Perhaps it's a preview of what he could get into when his playing days are over.
