Fiancée Shailene Woodley is “Jeopardy!” guest host and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ biggest fan. In fact, Woodley recently shared what her favorite time of the day is.
That’s right, it’s when she gets to watch Rodgers on “Jeopardy!.”
In a recent Instagram story, Woodley snapshotted Rodgers guest hosting the show. She revealed to her followers that her favorite time was getting to watch her beau follow his dreams. Of course, most fans have probably guessed that by now. Woodley has been nothing but supportive of Rodgers. In fact, she’s also used her social media influence to push for Rodgers to get the permanent job himself.
When describing their relationship, Woodley admitted she thought of her future husband as a giant nerd more than a football jock. But that’s okay because she loves nerds, at least one in particular.
“I don’t know him as a football guy,” the 29-year-old actress said. “I know him as the nerd who wants to host ‘Jeopardy!.’ That’s the dude I know. He just happens to also be very good at sports.”
Aaron Rodgers Wants to Be ‘Jeopardy!’ Host
This off-NFL season has been busy for Aaron Rodgers. For one, he and Woodley are currently planning their wedding. But Rodgers is also in the middle of living out his dream job. He always wanted to host “Jeopardy!” ever since he was a kid watching the program with his grandparents.
In an ideal world, Rodgers would play both football and host “Jeopardy!” in his off time.
“I don’t think I’d need to give up football to do it. They film 46 days a year,” Rodgers reportedly said. “I worked 187 this year in Green Bay. That gives me 178 days to do ‘Jeopardy!’ So I feel like I could fit 46 into that 178 and make it work. It would be a dream job for sure. And I’m not shy at all about saying I want the job.”
But Rodgers isn’t the only one gunning for the spot. There’s also previous guest host Ken Jennings to consider for the permanent host. And as a wild card, Levar Burton has nominated himself as the next full-time “Jeopardy!” host. Currently, there are no plans for Burton to guest host the show, making his involvement more up in the air. Whether Rodgers ultimately gets his wish remains to be seen, but he certainly seems to be enjoying his time on the game show while he’s on it.
