Jeopardy‘s current guest host, Aaron Rodgers, just posted a photo that indicates he’d love to turn that guest host position full-time. Rodgers is currently one of the many guest hosts on this season of Jeopardy as the production team looks to find their next full-time host. The Green Bay Packers quarterback has previously indicated he’d love the full-time spot on multiple occasions.
The caption, which just says “caption this…. #itcouldhappen,” has generated plenty of responses. One commenter said that Rodgers is “The master of doing everything.” other people in the comments have been quick to tell them that they want him to stay on the Packers.
“Would love to see it happen, but you’d have to stay a Packer also :)” another Instagram user commented while another just said, “Superbowls AND daily doubles baby!!” Overall, Rodger’s Instagram comments are flooded with support and excitement.
But fans shouldn’t worry too much. Rodgers has insisted he’d have time for both. “I don’t think I’d need to give up football to do it. They film 46 days a year. I worked 187 this year in Green Bay. That gives me 178 days to do ‘Jeopardy!’” Rodgers told The Ringer “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.”
The photo he shared says more of the same, that he could do both; be a game show host by night and a quarterback by day. That’s quite the schedule! Aaron Rodgers’s fiancee, Shailene Woodley, has been advocating for Rodgers to get the position as well.
Will Aaron Rodgers Become A Full-Time Host?
It’ll likely be a while before any decisions are made as far as a next full-time host. While not every guest host is vying for a full-time job with Jeopardy, there are still plenty of guest hosts to go before the end of the season. Ken Jennings, former Jeopardy superstar, and current consulting producer has said they want to hire someone before the next season.
So, Aaron Rodgers and his fans may have some time to wait before learning the aspiring host’s fate. In the meantime, Jeopardy fans can finish up the rest of the star-studded season. They can also tune in to the Tournament of Champions, hosted by Buzzy Cohen, airing from May 17th-May 28th.
