This “Jeopardy!” visitor host received trolled in his debut episode … Who’s Aaron Rodgers?
The Packers quarterback started his “Jeopardy!” guest-hosting stint on Monday evening, and whereas the sport wasn’t that aggressive, one contestant made it memorable. Heading into “Remaining Jeopardy,” returning champion Scott Shewfelt ($9,300) knew that he could not catch Brandon Deutsch ($22,300) even when he doubled his whole, so he took the chance to troll the hell out of Rodgers.
After revealing the class was “Daytime TV personalities,” Rodgers shared this clue: “Accepting a lifetime achievement Emmy, he stated, ‘Simply take … 10 seconds to think about the individuals who have helped you turn into who you might be.'”
The right response was, “Who’s Mr. Rogers?” Shewfelt determined to go together with, “Who wished to kick that area objective?”
The viewers instantly acknowledged that Shewfelt was referencing Packers coach Matt LaFleur’s decision to go for a field goal as a substitute of a landing late within the 2021 NFC championship recreation in opposition to the Buccaneers. Inexperienced Bay minimize Tampa Bay’s result in 5 however by no means received the ball again, and the Bucs went on to win that recreation and Tremendous Bowl 55.
“That could be a nice query,” Rodgers stated. “Needs to be appropriate, however sadly for this recreation at present, that is incorrect.”
Rodgers took all of it in stride, even admitting that he wished Shewfelt to go full troll.
“I can see out on the rostrum, and I used to be like, ‘Please put one thing concerning the area objective on there,'” Rodgers instructed Shewfelt. “You’ll all the time be all time in my e book, my pal. My first present, and that is what you’ve got stated on the finish. Thanks for that.”
Not a nasty first episode for Rodgers. Actually, it was fairly, fairly good.
