“Peril!” Guest host Aaron Rodgers appeared to be caught off guard Monday after a contestant took the opportunity to rediscover a painful memory of the Green Bay Packers quarterback’s past.
In the “Final Jeopardy” round, contestant Scott Shewfelt failed to respond to the latest clue about daytime TV personalities.
Instead, he asked Rodgers about a controversial basket in last season’s NFC Championship game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, which ultimately ended the Packers’ season – and their Super Bowl ticket.
“Who wanted to kick this basket?” Shewfelt wrote.
Rodgers looked stunned at first before looking down momentarily with a smile on his face.
“That’s a great question,” he laughs. “It should be correct, but unfortunately for this game today it is incorrect.”
Rodgers made his debut Monday as the show’s host. It should host for the next two weeks, according to the “Jeopardy!” website.
A series of guest hosts, including award-winning journalists and celebrities, were announced after a long “Jeopardy!” host Alex Trebek died late last year from cancer.
Expected guest hosts include CNN anchor Anderson Cooper and NBC’s “TODAY” co-host Savannah Guthrie.
