Football star Aaron Rodgers is set to be a guest host of “Jeopardy!” this month.

The Green Bay Packers quarterback will join other celebrities in hosting the game show in two-week intervals, according to a local CBS station TMJ4. Beginning on Monday, Rodgers will host for 10 episodes.

Rodgers previously appeared on the celebrity edition of the game show in 2015. During his run on the show, he raised $50,000 for Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer, reported.

Rodgers said that he is honored to be featured on the show again.

“The show has been so special to me over the years,” he said, according to “It’s been a staple at my house here in Green Bay for the last 16 years  6 o’clock watching Alex and trying to get as many questions as I can. When the opportunity came up in 2015 I mean that was a dream come true, it really was, to be on there, to get to meet Alex was just such a special moment, and we’re all obviously sad about his passing.”

Longtime “Jeopardy!” host Alex Trebek died on Nov. 8 at 80 years old after being diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer.
No permanent new host has been announced for the show.
Several other celebrities are slated to appear as interim hosts this season, and a donation will be made to the charity of their choice.
