Rodgers has previously been a celebrity edition of Jeopardy back in 2015 where he won a $50,000 donation to his charity of choice, the MACC Fund (Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer).
A permanent host won’t be announced until later in the year and Ken Jennings, a Jeopardy veteran who’s earned more than $2-million on the game show, made an appearance on Monday’s edition of Jeopardy as the show’s first guest host since Trebek’s death in November.
