Jeopardy! contestants miss Packers clue, Aaron Rodgers left disappointed

Apr 13, 2021, 7:46 PM | Updated: 7:47 pm




Aaron Rodgers’ stint as a guest host of Jeopardy! isn’t short of viral moments and the latest Packers reference on the show left the QB defeated.

On Tuesday’s episode, Rodgers read a $400 clue with an answer close to home from the category “Title Waves:” “In the 1960s, these midwesterners earned five NFL championship trophies.”

The answer is, of course, the Packers.

It was meant to be any easy clue, and even if they didn’t know for sure, someone might take a guess on Green Bay considering Rodgers is hosting, right?

But when none of the three contestants could provide an answer, Rodgers gave a disappointed shrug and said “Green Bay Packers?”

On the very next clue, a contestant answered quickly and correctly with “Who are the Boston Celtics?” Rodgers responded with a look of exasperation and said sarcastically, “Oh you know that one, huh?”

The quarterback finishes out his time as guest host of the game show this week, with his last show airing Friday.
