Aaron Rodgers could well be the definition of “swag’ in the Merriam-Webster dictionary. But, as of now, the guest Jeopardy! host has to settle for only holding the NFL MVP award. Nonetheless, the quarterback has some serious style.

When Rodgers first came on Jeopardy! as one of the celebrity guests, he brought some unique flare. While he went on to win the show, now he seems to regret his choice of outfit.

In 2015, on Celebrity Jeopardy!, Rodgers came out wearing a grey-ish blue button-down V-neck sweater. He paired the sweater with a grey button-down shirt. An interesting choice, considering the wardrobe that he possessed at the time.

Now, though, Rodgers dons a suit and tie for his work as the Jeopardy! guest host. His hairstyle and facial hair are different from 2015 as well. So, on Instagram, Rodgers decided to do a picture comparison of his two times on the show.

“Suit [is greater than] sweater thing,” Rodgers captioned the post. “I think we can all agree on that (smiling face emojis). 2 nights to go, check your local listings (prayer emoji and “100” emoji). #ilovejeopardy #thankful

Aaron Rodgers Was Not a Fan Of His 2015 “Jeopardy!” Look As a Contestant

If Aaron Rodgers’ facial features were blurred out, there is no way that you’d say the two photos were the same person. The outfits are remarkably different.

Even though Rodgers undoubtedly has a favorite, neither is the worst outfit Jeopardy! has ever seen. The limited dress code that the game show sends contestants helps mitigate disastrous looks. Everyone has to look nice but can keep it casual. That’s why no one has ever shown up in a tracksuit or a Teletubby costume.

Nonetheless, Rodgers is not proud of the sweater vest he sported during the 2015 episode. However, he has more than made up for it with his tailored suits as the guest host.

As his time comes to an end – only two more shows at the time of writing – keep an eye on his outfit. Perhaps he will break out the sweater vest for old time’s sake.

These last two shows will be important for him to show his best stuff. Rodgers has made it clear that he wants to be considered as an option for the permanent Jeopardy! host role. Consequently, these last two shows are extremely important.

Additionally, Rodgers is trying to drum up more viewers for the show. Hopefully, he is successful at doing both things.
