Touchdown! Aaron Rodgers scored big on Celebrity Jeopardy! on Tuesday, May 12, stealing the show from his fellow famous competitors, astronaut Mark Kelly and Shark Tank mogul Kevin O’Leary.
The Green Bay Packers quarterback, 31, had quite the successful run on the quiz show, leading the pack from the beginning and charming viewers as he gave correct answers with a smile. Competing on the special Jeopardy! week, Rodgers was raising money for his charity of choice, Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer.
The cause seemed to inspire the hunky athlete, as he buzzed quickly and often, showing his knowledge of the Bible, sports, animals, pop culture, and general trivia. Rodgers proved that he has brains to go along with his Super Bowl-winning braun, and ended Double Jeopardy in first place.
The NFL star was a few thousand dollars ahead of Kelly, 51, at the beginning of Final Jeopardy, and far beyond O’Leary, 60, who ended in the red but was given $1,000 to compete for his charity. All three of the men failed to correctly identify the last question of, “Who are Harley and Davidson,” but Rodgers came out on top, earning $50,000 for the MACC Fund.
“Had a blast on @Jeopardy checking off another bucket list item. Should have said turd ferguson on final jeopardy though. #maccfundwins,” wrote Rodgers, who gave the answer of “Who are Ernst & Young” when stumped by Final Jeopardy. “Had a lot of fun with @ShuttleCDRKelly and @kevinolearytv and so grateful to be playing for such a great organization @maccfund #Jeopardy.”
Olivia Munn, who has been dating Rodgers for about one year, also took to Instagram to support her love after his big win. Sharing a photo of Rodgers with host Alex Trebek, the Newsroom star wrote, “Like. A. BOSS! Congrats to the MACC Fund! Also, proud of our friend Mark Kelly who came in 2nd place!! #celebrityjeopardy #jeopardy #maccfund @maacfund.”
