Rodgers is more than just a fan of the classic game show, he’s a past contestant and winner. In May 2015, the future Hall of Famer flexed his trivia chops during an appearance on an episode of “Celebrity Jeopardy” hosted by Alex Trebek.
Rodgers defeated Kevin O’Leary from “Shark Tank” and astronaut Mark Kelly, who just became the Senator-elect from Arizona. He won $50,000 for charity after a final score of $8,399 on the show. The money went to the Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer.
Check out Rodgers run through the Leader of the Pack category, correctly answering questions from Alex Trebek about Iditarod racing, Alexander the Great, Mt. Everest, and Custer’s Last Stand.
Rodgers missed the Final Jeopardy question presented by Alex Trebek — wrongly identifying two old businessmen from the Packers’ own state of Wisconsin — but his opponents were unable to take advantage, handing the victory for Rodgers. (Funnily enough, Rodgers also missed an earlier question about his alma mater, the University of California, Berkeley.)
