In the episode that aired Monday, Packers quarterback Rodgers asked contestants to identify the daytime TV personality who when accepting a Lifetime Achievement Emmy had said â€œjust take… 10 seconds to think of the people who have helped you become who you are.â€
The answer is Mr. Rogers.
But one contestant, Scott, cheekily wrote, â€œWho wanted to kick that field goal?â€ â€• referring to thatÂ call during the Packersâ€™ NFC Championship clash against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Rodgers chuckled at the gag.
â€œThat is a great question, should be correct,â€ he responded. â€œBut unfortunately for this game today, thatâ€™s incorrect.â€
Rodgers later reflected on the joke and experience of filming the game show during an Instagram Live with his fiancÃ©e, actor Shailene Woodley.
â€œA little insight, as the host at my podium I get to see what theyâ€™re writing. So, I saw him beginning to write something about kicking the field goal and then I had to get to my spot and I didnâ€™t see the rest of his writing [but] I knew there was going to be some sort of humor there,â€ he said.
â€œI still am not sure why we kicked that field goal,â€ Rodgers added.
The quarterback also revealed he had no plans to quit football â€” but wouldnâ€™t rule out hosting the game show again.
â€œI just won MVP. I still have a lot left in the tank. Iâ€™m still gonna play and Iâ€™d love to hostÂ â€˜Jeopardy!â€™Â at the same time,â€ he said. â€œâ€˜Jeopardy!â€™Â films five shows a day, 46 days a year. Thatâ€™s 230 episodes. And I work for six months out of the year, so the other six months I would have time to, probably, film 46 days I think.
