NGT: Jeopardy contestant trolls host Aaron Rogers

Giantsfan79 : 4/5/2021 6:01 pm
Aaron Rodgers is hosting Jeopardy this week. During Final Jeopardy one of the contestants wrote the following as their answer

“Who wanted to kick that field goal?”

Rodgers responded “That is a great question. Should be correct, but unfortunately for this game today it’s incorrect.”

If you have a chance to find the clip on the internet, Rodgers nonverbal facial expressions are pretty damn good.
Watching now

Rogers should keep his day job; he is much better as a QB than as a Jeopardy Host. and also as a State Farm spokesperson.
I'm an obsessive Jeopardy watcher, and I'll say he's decidedly better

than 2 of the other 3 guest hosts so far. I'll be interested to see his energy/enthusiasm as the "days" go by.
Outside..

of Ken Jennings, Rodgers has been fantastic. It's only been one night, but he's been the best guest host outside of Jennings by far
I think he was really good

To me a monotone, buttoned down, serious voice is good for Jeopardy. I don't need 22 minutes of charisma on a quiz show.

I've read the producers liked him a lot and thought he was excellent.
The funny thing is...

...the actual correct answer was the question "Who is Mr. Rogers?" referring to Fred Rogers.

I agree, the last thing someone replacing Trebek should try to do is overact in the role. A little awkwardness is to be expected, but I didn’t think Rodgers was bad
I gotta say

He has gotten much better that his first couple of shows. Unlike some of the other guest hosts.

"that" should have been "than"
I like Aaron Rodgers as a host.

Thought it was funny last night when he got annoyed that nobody knew about the Packers winning five titles in the 1960s.
He has gotten very good

Big improvement.
I now think he's the best guest host they have had

He stepped it up big time in week 2 and is clearly much more confident and calm. If they give him the full time gig he has very high potential at it.
